App Reviews

  • It’s nice, but could be so much better!

    I’ve used Pocket for years now and subscribe to Premium. Overall, the app does what it’s supposed to; making for an excellent way of storing nearly anything for later viewing. However, I don’t understand the logic of having to click multiple things to share or recommend articles, adding to one’s favorites, or adding to a custom folder. It’s tedious! Instapaper has a button one can click to add to one’s “Likes” (favorites) list, as well as sharing the item to a social network, all with a single tap! Pocket could really use such a customizable feature to speed up the process of not only reading but also sharing things with others. As well as sorting content as desired. Some of the buttons in the article list are not properly labeled for VoiceOver accessibility. The Search and other menu options are labeled with a random set of characters, and have not been fixed after I’ve made reports to support about that issue. Lastly, the app tends to crash when browsing the Recommended list of articles. It’s one of the best features offered by Pocket, but again, reports of crashes have gone unanswered. That’s why I give this the lower rating. If Instapaper didn’t have its own crashing issues, I’d simply use that. But I believe Pocket is superior, but has these minor annoyances which actually add up to using additional time to complete simple tasks (IMO). Again, it’s nice, but could be so much better!
  • much better than apple’s ibooks

    By AnimewithFood
    i started off using apple’s ibooks for saving fanfiction that i really liked. i had been using it for 2-3 years and i loved that it could save stories as PDFs so that if the webpage was no longer available, i’d have a copy. recently, i updated my phone and a whole bunch of my stories were gone and i was so devastated because the webpages have been taken down ),: pocket is a nice alternative to ibooks because none of my files have disappeared! the only small thing i have is that the main interface seems so cluttered and i wish i could put my stuff into categories instead of tags because it looks cleaner and be able to merge different articles because i have multiple chapters of a story but i have no way of connecting them. all in all, pocket is a wonderful app! 💓
  • Love this app !

    I really love this app, I use it constantly, I only wish it were cheaper. I’d be happy to pay $5-10 dollars one time for it but unfortunately the current subscription pricing scheme pretty much rules that out. You see, once you set reoccurring subscriptions they can run on forever, and that’s a real issue. I know several widows that I’ve spent hours with trying to stop them after their husband passed away. I’m not young anymore, thing happen and if I were to subscribe the subscription may run on forever since my wife is, to say the least, non-technical. So if something happened to me she wouldn’t have the slightest clue what’s going on, why are these things showing up on a credit card and have no idea how to stop them. Problems of re-occurring charges could go on for months, even years, so I can’t do it. So a sincere “Sorry” to the authors. I wish there were a direct purchase at a reasonable price, but it is what it is. I subscribe to the Wall St. Journal, the paper edition, I’d like to have the digital as well but the same issue exists. My wife understands a news paper and how to cancel it, digital, no way. But thank you for Pocket even without the premium app. I highly recommend it everyone as an essential tool.
  • Crashes on opening - FIXED

    By Kosi723
    UPDATE: the developer contacted me directly to let me know this issue is fixed, so I've updated my rating and am happy with the app once again. I appreciate the responsiveness and am so happy I can use the app the way I want to. I have used Pocket for years to store and read articles, and it has worked flawlessly. Recently I discovered the listen feature and was able to enjoy more content by listening when I wasn't able to read. However all of a sudden the app started crashing when invoking the read feature, and now crashes even on simply opening. I have deleted the app, restarted the phone, and redownloaded the app, to no avail. Reluctantly I'm now looking at switching to Instapaper. I'm loyal to apps that work well, but can't keep waiting for this to get fixed.
  • Easy browsing and time management

    Reasons I love pocket: - some website are full of adds and other things that make scrolling difficult. Save to pocket and see the text only. - read off line on my flight - background is set to sepia color and text larger. Easy on the eyes - I see something I like and wanna read. It may disrupt my task at hand. So I save it to pocket and will be there to read. - store all the articles I like. And if I am even I a situation “one time I read” I can just search it and find it in my archive. I don’t have to try to remember where I read it. - save recipes. All my cooking is here - after a while it’s like a resource of all the good stuff on a topic. For example, a friend asked me about hiring. So I searched my archive on pocket for all the articles that when I read I though were worthy of archiving on hiring. Within a minutes I sent him 5 solid helpful articles. - I save from recommended/ popular articles if I have nothing saved or didn’t have time to save something good and my flight is taxing. I could probably come up with few more. But the best really is when I want to read something and I am annoyed by the layout/ adds I just pocket it and open it in pocket. Clean and comfortable to read.
  • Fix the email address problem

    By Notnalias
    I use Pocket regularly, but can’t believe they’ve still been unable to fix something that’s been now broken for years. Before, if you wanted to share an article w a small grp of folks, let’s call them regulars, you’d just highlight a box/circle, click send and they’d get it. This functionality was removed more than 3 years ago. Why? I don’t know. When I contacted you guys you said you were working on it. From the evidence, you weren’t and you aren’t. Pocket is by your omission, much less useful and I share far fewer links than I did. I don’t like retyping addresses of regulars, so I rarely do. If this is your intention, you’ve succeeded. It’s still pretty good for saving most articles/links of interest, but clearly some sites seem to be designed/built to not be viewed enjoyed by Pocket users later. That’s their and our loss.
  • Great App

    By AlanHughes
    One of my favorite apps. I would love it though if there was an option to turn off iOS's system wide font sizing for the article titles. The idea may have sounded good to Apple in theory, but it just creates an annoying wackamole situation, increasing and decreasing sizes, back and forth, and in the end nothing is legible. Since your website now works on iOS, if I have an internet connection I always prefer it to the app, simply because it doesn't cut off article titles. It also seems to handle thumbnail photos or lack of photos for some articles, much better than the app does. The only problem with this is I have to lower the font size a bit for desktop/laptop and it is a bit larger than I would like for my ipad, but it is workable.
  • Disappointed

    Since four years I have complemented just about all my readings both work and leisure through using this incredible app. Although, I must say nowadays my overall usage of the app has taken a serious downturn like never seen before... I figured out go check similar apps and observe how they compare to Pocket in terms of interface and ease of use. I finally concluded this journey with my full unapologetic abandonment of the reviewed app and opted to use Feedly and Inoreader (RSS readers). If you wish, both of these app are free to download on the Apple store. My chief complaint directly has to with rigidity of interface, I think a more flexible interface should do the app wonders. I suggest adding a categorize feature to store arrays of articles based on a shared category without compensating the ease of use like the case is with the tag feature.
  • Great “File Cabinet”!

    By Williejoel
    Have found this to be probably my most used app other than Chrome. It has allowed me to save literally hundreds of web pages and tag them for quick future reference. No more searching for that one page I vaguely remember but can’t remember where from. Not only does it work from my laptop as a Chrome extension but also on my iPhone and iPad and they all automatically sync-up. I’m able to save directly from the Twitter app. My only other wish would be to make it work with the iTunes Facebook app directly. Have to open links in Chrome or Safari and then save, but that is only a couple of extra clicks to preserve an item I want to save.
  • Great offline reader

    I love being able to save articles for reading, especially when I take long flights were there is no internet access. The app does a great job of including graphics and tables from most articles and at the same time left out the ads. For some reason, it is unable to include graphics from a few articles that I found of interest. I can only assume that the internet page includes ads and may not be able to discriminate between an ad and an actual article graphic. This may likely be because of how some ads are peppered between paragraphs. I found this a little difficult when the article referred to an illustration that was missing. In any case, this is very nice app and highly recommend it.
