Have this app lam going have lam going to keeping it
I love Pocket for syncing across devices. I've been using pocket since 2013 and I am still very satisfied. I read a lot on my ipad and phone and like this I can sync everything. Its also great for when you stumble across a good recipe, just for safe-keeping. Only downside is that page flipping might turn on on accident when I don't want it to, but I also don't want to disable it. But otherwise it is very comfortable to use
Weird wakelockss! Keeping awake the device without using. Voice speech of TTS in Pocket is slow. TTS Google offers more speed but Pocket does not let to use. Seems like it uses the half of the speed available. If you go to Settings of the phone - Language - Speech/Text to speech, you can tweak and adjust the speed of the Google TTS voice from veery loow to crazy fast. Pocket, when using the TTS in the fastest voice, only let to use like 3/10 of the speed that is available by the system. I recommend to add more width in the voice speed spectrum. I know TTS could be much faster in pocket. Now I have to use Mac OS Speech system because Pocket does not let me tweak to a faster voice. I hope you can solve, its easy ;)
Just wish it added the features of highlighting text in webpages and possibly attaching your own note for future reference. Also there is no option to pick and choose which articles you want offline, upon syncing it tries to download 200 to 300 mb of data which at times exceeds the space available on the phone and I really don't need that many articles offline as I'm only going to read 1 or 2 articles on a given day.
I've used pocket for quite some time now and i love the app. My only feedback in the current version it that it was better when i used to get notifications when someone posted a recommendation. Now I get these notifications after i open the app, which kind of defeats the purpose of the notification altogether. Also would help if we could categorise saved articles into lists (say based on genre or any personal parameter).
I've been using this app for years now and it has never given me any problems. I love how all my saved pages can be read for offline reading and are presented in a neat, minimalistic layout. My only complaint is that I wish deleted articles are stored in a recycle bin so we can retrieve them in case we made a mistake and some pages are also unable to be downloaded in article view. Other than that, splendid job. ☺
