Review from A Google User
Great update! Finally full support of the Greek alphabet A gorgeous app now even better!
I love the usefulness of this apps offline storage of webpages, but it insists on reopening itself. I've hibernated it repeatedly using different apps aswell as androids own optimization. Less than a minute later it's open again in the back ground. I can't help but be suspicious of this. Why must it remain open? Sadly I'm unistalling. I like the app but haven't had this issue with any other. Believe me I will be spreading the word. Please fix
This is a wonderful app. 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, full layout. It is improved regularly with new functions. The multiple tags and search are very helpful. For a long time, I had been looking for a way to save easily articles of interest. I have been using it for 3 years, many times a day, with total satisfaction.
Pocket is clean, fast, free, feature-rich, and cross-platform with first-class Android support. I like and use it so much that I choose to pay for Pocket Premium, but these bonus features aren't critical, and the free service is not crippled or limited at all. Now with article highlighting, Pocket is the full package. I've used the the competitors, but Pocket works best. Export to Kindle can be done via free 3rd party tools. Pocket's built-in article sharing is a great feature, especially if your friends are also Pocket users.
Tags in non-standard characters are supported, but not working! I used to tag saved articles with tags in my language (gr character set). Today I wanted to find an article. Tags and articles were there in my language, but selecting them was fetching 0 results! This is a major issue as it makes the app useless to me. Please fix it ASAP. Ps. English tags are working ok!
"Reading" my simplified Chinese articles speaks nonsense words!! It's set to traditional Chinese in the option and cannot be changed!! (Android 8.1)
First of all, thanks for the updates that now highlighter and backround play are available. It's a helpful app for me since my old ways of saving articles are bookmarks, save for offline reading and sending the links to myself but thank God, Pocket came into my life! xD (hyperbole mode). It's a good app. But I hope groupings of the articles would be available too. For example, you can create a folder and name them and save there certain articles of common kind.
Highlighting is here! You can now highlight important passages you’ve read to easily revisit in the future. We’ve also added a Highlights filter to your List so you can see all your highlights in one place. To get started, simply select some article text and tap Highlight.
Plus, added the option to disable Auto Play when Listening.
