I used to love this app. Yes it's described as a "save articles for later" app and that's true. However, it used to block all the annoying ads and pop ups. Now it doesn't. If I want to save something for later it's really easy to just bookmark it and save in a folder. I might just uninstall it now. It's annoying. The ads take over almost any article you want to read these days. Not worth it. After one or two ads I stop reading. It's pointless. And when using pocket the pages are often "jumpy".

Thank you for sharing your honest feedback regarding our sponsored content. At the moment, Free Pocket users see the occasional sponsored post in the iOS and Android apps, but it's helpful to hear you'd like to avoid seeing sponsored content in Pocket! - Issis

I've been a big fan of Pocket for years. I love being able to build a reading list from Twitter while I'm in line at the grocery store or whatever and do the reading when I have time. Just a couple issues: I have recommendation notifications turned off, but I still get them every so often. And the article parser still messes up sometimes - if the lede is formatted differently it'll sometimes leave it out (or leave out everything else), and embedded tweets cause problems.

Update after dev response: The "Save from Clipboard" option does not show up. No bar at the bottom of the app shows up when I've copied a link. Original review: Don't know when they removed the ability to save articles from copied links, let alone save anything at all, but that is ridiculous. Why would you remove such a basic feature? Doesn't look like I can use it within Chrome on my phone either. Guess I'm looking for a new app. Sorry. You dropped the ball.
