  • Lacking Integration

    By EnochFranks
    Pocket is an excellent concept, but it seems to be lacking good integration with prominent news distributors. Many articles can’t load into the application due to pay walls (WSJ) and others fail to utilize the reader view (The Economist), merely saving links to the original content instead. These problems persist despite the consumer (me) having subscriptions with all the aforementioned parties. These failures may not be entirely attributable to Pocket, but the fact remains that a *payed* service which cannot complete its most basic advertised functions with major news distributors is not holding up its side of the bargain. I hope to return with a better review of an otherwise excellent service once these problems are fixed.
  • Significant voiceover accessibility issues

    By crister1
    Running iOS 11.4.1 on an iPhone, there are some significant Voiceover accessibility issues. The edit field when trying to add tags to articles is not at all accessible by voiceover. When trying to select multiple articles, voiceover does not say when an item has been selected. There are some unlabeled buttons as well. All these little things add up to a very frustrating user experience for the blind. It’s especially frustrating as I am a premium customer. Please fix in future updates.
  • This is by far my favorite app

    This app must come pre-installed on all iPhones. Number 1 "read-it-later" app. Easy to use, minimalist and almost no ads.
  • Daily Driver

    By rain_no_more
    Pocket is one of my favorite apps. Text to speech & ability to follow interesting folks’ recommend two things I really enjoy. There a couple of changes/improvements I’ve been requesting for some time: that once read a selection move to a “read” folder (or some other obvious visual cue). The 2nd & more important ask is this: ability to select multiple articles for text to speech - I frequently listen to content while driving - a batch option would up the utility of a great app tremendously.
  • No full screen on YouTube videos?

    By Rik Bostin
    Pocket is great but this is a major fail. YouTube suggests contacting the developer. Will you do anything about this?
  • The only app I use more than my timer app

    By Turki1018
    if u want to save a web page to ur Pocket via ur browser, u have to open the app in ur mobile, and refresh it by urslef, or the web page won’t be available for reading offline (even if u allowed the app to refresh in the background). the app should support background refresh
  • Love this app. Use it daily.

    By JimCriz
    Very few apps come close to the amount of use I give Pocket. It has been a go-to app for years. Absolutely an essential.
