Anyone have any pocket alternatives? This app (even when notified that it is broken) hasn't been updated in almost 6 months. About the same with the iOS app. And emails to pocket support are basically useless, last response I got was essentially "thanks for pointing out X/Y/Z sites stopped working...we can't say when they will be fixed". This was 5 months ago...

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Our team has located an issue where the Pocket will crash when attempting to use the Offline voices. In the meantime, we'd suggest reinstalling the app, as it will bring your Listen Settings to default. Rest assured, I've shared your review with our team, so we can search for a possible fix! - Issis

I've used the app for at least a decade and loved it. In the past year it has been steadily heading downhill fast. The main benefit of Pocket has always been to save the text of articles offline so they could be read regardless of network connectivity. My complaint with the Windows version of Pocket was that you had to be online to read. They have chosen that same direction for the app overall. If all this app does is save links to articles, and doesn't download the text, its useless.

This is getting worse and worse. First, fewer and fewer articles have offline modes. Most just send me to the website, defeating its purpose. There isn't even consistency between two articles from the same website. One will save while the other one won't. There are inconsistencies between the web and mobile versions with some saves not showing up, and it gets past fewer and fewer paywalls now. Tweets of articles used to display the saved article with the tweet on top, now just show the tweet.
