I hate the new home view -- scrolling left and right and up and down. The article is now smaller because the one to the right is cutoff and the one below it is cutoff as well. I would rather have the old recommendations view back with tabs across the top to select the different categories rather than scrolling in all directions.
So much bloat now in what used to be a really good, straightforward service. I don't understand why everything has to be a social network now. All I want to do is save files offline; if that's all you want too, I suggest you look elsewhere.
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 had to leave the beta program because I really dislike the new home screen. I like the simple 2 tabs, one for your list and another for recomendations. By the way, I love the endless recommendation list, I learn a lot from the recommended articles. I hope the new beta home screen doesn't make it to the release version. Otherwise I might have to find another app.
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?
Liked this app when it was for saving articles and bookmarking. Now like everything else, it's trying to become a social network. Time to abandon ship. Quite a shame. Have over a thousand articles saved. Was one of my favorite apps.
