It does not consistently save your spot in an article (often resetting to the top), and there are no bookmarks. So what is the point? If the only way to know how far I am in an article is to highlight, you may as well use diigo which is free. The only solution I have found is to highlight a period at the end of the last sentence you read, then to delete such highlights when done with the article. I shouldn't have to do this!

The good: it's a great way to save articles for later reading. I like that it simplifies the text and removes much of the ad bloat from source. I also like the ability to tag as in ENote. My suggested improvements: I would like to see a better search functionality. My searches (paid version) tend to return a sea of irrelevant results, so I don't use search much, which is unfortunate,as it would be useful. I'd also like to see a pagination option in IOS.

This app continues to be excellent. Transfering and saving articles from any source is very easy: just go to "Share" and then select "Pocket". The text of the article appears without extrenuous sidebars, but you can also go back to the original layout. The search is very helpful. The tags have been updated: the most recent are kept up top for a while, the others return to alphabetical order. The audio function is also useful. I have been using it for 7 years, many times a day.
