Review from Psy Hardartcore
Sync issue Why after it sync's after the first login and pretend to download the whole articles i have saved on my profile...after some weeks when i try to read them, it wants to download them again?! So what it's downloading the first time?? Only the list of articles? Pocket is much more useful and intuitive app...I'm dissapointed! And why after every update I have to redownload the whole articles again...poor
Articles already loaded always have to reloaded! Frustrating. Text sometimes isn't complete. Sometimes when you open the app after a few hours. You have to re-download again. Then the file you just re-downloaded would also have articles that is cut in half :/
While it is works when it works, it does have a tendency to regularly crash which is annoying. Recently, they made a change that u can't copy text which is horrible and am writing this here in the hopes that they will return that capability. Please.
The concept is great. Certain areas I need to go where I'd like to read at times have terrible signal. Instapaper solves that by downloading them to my phone. It works really well... ...mostly. I don't know about the latest update, but until today, it crashes whenever Android unloads it from memory. It's irritating. But its support for IFTTT makes it killer. I pointed it at my favorite tech news site's RSS feed and it takes care of the rest.
I don't want to be negative, but I couldn't open the app yet. It crashes every time, literally. Nexus 5X (7.1.1)
Good concept with a hit-and-miss execution. About half the saved articles are empty once opened - a "reload" feature would come in handy. Other than that, it looks gorgeous and does a great job of losing the clutter.
Love this service, but the current app users an extraordinary amount of battery power. Must be a bug and will rescore if it changes in the future. At the moment I just cant have it installed.
