This app is incredible! Its simple and amazingly convenient. Over years I have accumulated thousands of great articles which I can easily tag, search and read at ease. The recent update has taken a bit of simplicity of this app, but I believe this was a logical next step to becoming a one stop recommendation plus read it later solution. I'd like to see its recommendation engine to become better and better while perhaps also adding a subscription feature (like RSS based Feedly) in future.
Amazing app which I have used for 4 years. But now I have well over 3,000 articles. By clicking on Archive it seems to be downloading the deleted ones too. There is no way to delete articles in Archive without selecting them individually. Therefore I am going to open up approx. 100 useful articles and start a fresh account. I assume this will leave a load of data on Pocket's servers, so I would think that it is in everybody's interest to fix this for the future, so that it is easier to remove Archived articles. And ideally delete all articles without a label added before X date. Otherwise thank you Pocket team, this has been a great app for me.
It is one of my most-used and most useful apps, I've even bought the pro version (to support it, not because it adds much that would be of value to me). What's annoying though is: 1.) that the Android phone app doesn't remember where I left an article and does not let me continue from there when I open the app again. It works fine on my tablet but not on the phone. 2.) that in list view the icons for "delete" etc don't show - I just get a grey block when I press longer. 3.) that there is no way to find articles by the time they were saved. If you save as much help as I do a premium function that let's you access the articles by date / period would be really helpful (e. g. "show me all articles from June 2016" ) 4.) that you can't bulk delete.
I don't have habit of reading books, magazines even newspapers. One day I was going through the apps in palystore and accidentally installed POCKET and I thought to give it a try, at first I don't have any idea what I was doing with this, latter on I found an article that I can't stop reading and I continued to add more articles and my habit has completely changed. With the help of pocket I'm able to find new things daily. Amazing app to improve yourself.
The new layout has totally destroyed the simplicity of the app. It's also moved from primarily being a place to store pages of interest to one which want to suggest new content. Additionally, horizontal scrolling elements are not as useful for finding content - as you can only see one or two links. I'm starting to look for alternatives.
I would recommend this app for the text to speech function along. I love the ability to have webpages read to me and the voice is pretty smooth and not too robot like and grating. Only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars was that I thought Pocket whole point was to cache webpages for later offline reading, but I've returned to pages I've saved only to find them missed. It it's not take a copy of a pages, just a link surely It's not much different from a normal browser bookmark?
