Review from A Google User
Great update! Finally full support of the Greek alphabet A gorgeous app now even better!
Still useful, but... Pocket is still great for reading web pages later, or reading uncluttered versions of web pages. But what is with this Recommendations tab? The tabs take up screen space and the recommendations are banal. Please add an option to suppress then.
Space and Evernote integration... Right now, it has a few problems: 1. Share to Evernote is broken. When sharing, the article goes straight to the default notebook with no tags, regardless of what notebook or tags you use in the sharing process. 2. You can't choose to store your library on the sd card. 3. You can't long press to download an image in an article anymore. Fix this and I will go back to 5 stars.
Great app, terrible recommendations I love this app and use it heavily for collecting recipes, but this latest update with the recommendations is just pointless ads. The things I have in my pocket are 90% recipes, yet the recommendations are on random pop culture articles? The recommendations are quite blatantly not based on reading history, so please just be honest and call it what it is: a huge space for sponsored articles that have no relevance to me.
"Recommendations" are useless The new recommendation section is useless. As other users say, this app should focus on improving reading features than adding new pointless features. Before this update I gave 5 stars
Best reading app Personally, Pocket is my most treasured app as I am an avid reader and learner. Quick referencing is easy. If I could group the different types of articles into specific categories, that would make it even better. Pocket has my unreserved support. I love your Recommendations feature - Pocket is awesome beyond words!
Ridiculously Wonderful Love it. Use it daily, even underground in the NYC subway system. The periodic email "cherry picks" are incredibly useful and value-added as part of the service. If you don't have it, I feel sorry for you: you're missing out on something that will greatly enhance your reading ecosystem.
