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.

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear you've found issues when Saving from Clipboard. This feature hasn't been removed, and I'd like to take a closer look at this report. Please send us an email at support+review@getpocket.com to investigate further this behavior and troubleshoot this together! - Issis

The UX is kinda clunky. I would give 4 stars but I just haven't noticed any major improvements over time. Things seem to break faster than they're fixed. I get certificate errors on many more articles now, and I can't close them. Archived articles are marked as unviewed every time I leave the list. Articles load improperly - I don't mind reporting them, but I would like a convenient button to open in browser. I really have to press the share button and then find my browser as a share option?

Need more options. Until recently I used third party apps as they made it much easier to tag, EDIT LINKS, and sort through my thousands of saved articles. Pocket was such a great concept, but now I'm trying to move all my links to newer apps that enable organisation.. I don't even know why I thought I could use Pocket on my phone. It's a nightmare. I should be able to edit links that may have been forwarded and are in the URL.
