If you want to use it free, you must have your own web server. That said, I logged onto my admin account for domain, and there was already a wallabag plug-in available. It was a little tricky to figure out what wallabag was asking for, but the app populates everything automatically, and after going back and forth copying and pasting data, it works great. I just wish it would save an entire webpage for offline viewing. It only saves small amounts of some pages.

Counterpoint to all the one star reviews, I've been hosting my own Wallabag server for a few years and had no lasting problems. The app has had sync issues where certificates were not trusted (let'sencrypt) and the local cache had to be wiped but most of the issues people talk about are network/hosting and nothing to do with Wallabag, either end. Things can still be improved and I'd like to see soon are scrolling using the track area not just the screen but it's much the same as Pocket.

Thanks for a sensible review! You should create an issue here https://github.com/wallabag/android-app/issues/new if you want to get track area scrolling working. Some additional information and testing are needed to add/fix it.

Is this app dead? Last update was over a year ago. There is still no 2-factor-authentication. In addition I'm not able to import bookmarks from firefox, over the desktop page. It looked very promising. Sad this just an other disappointment in search of a privacy friendly bookmark manager.

There haven't been updates in a while, but most of the things work. There is a workaround for 2FA (temporary disable 2FA for the app setup). Issues with the web application should be reported in the main wallabag repo, if you want to get help. Also, wallabag is not a bookmark manager (though, some may use it in a similar manner).
