  • Audio scrolling

    In the spoken article feature, please include the ability to scroll through the text to determine where the voice should be reading.
  • TTS

    Great app. I like the new read aloud feature using text to speech but wish you could change the parameters, such as voice. One annoyance: even though I have "show scrollbar" turned on in preferences, it still does not show the scroll bar in the main list screen. Makes it very hard to see where you are when you have a long list. I also wish there were a way to delete articles within the article view screen rather than having to go back to the list view (didn't we used to be able to do this?). Makes it easier to accidentally delete the wrong article!
  • Still no true black theme for iPhone X

    No true black theme for iPhone X. Pocket should be ashamed they’ve taken this long to implement such an obvious feature. Apple should remove this from the store until this is fixed.
  • Pocket is a reader’s delight

    Often you see an article online that interests you, but you lack the time to read it now, then can’t find it again later when you do. Pocket allows you to clip and save articles in one place so you always have something interesting to read.
  • Buggy

    By Ben Kenon
    This is a useful app, but when I go to the recommended stories tab, many of the articles don’t open unless I click the “open in safari” tab. Annoying.
  • Now This Is Luxury

    Saves paper, diversifies reading, engages gray matter, makes the issues of being offline and needing more light moot, provides more substantial use of time besides playing electronic games, makes reading more bite-size, and all that without things getting heavier nor bulkier than your cellphone -- what's there not to rave about!
  • Indispensable Asset!

    I don't know what I'd do without this glorious app. In a world of essential tools to organize, entertain and complete your life, I highly recommend the Pocket app in the top five of your infinite list of never-ending useful applications. I use it everyday. It's quite addictive! I organize countless articles, videos, bits of information from all over the internet in one easy to navigate and highly efficient place and the most important detail of all. The freaking app never let's me down. I can't say the same for a lot of the other apps. This one does its job and allows you to enjoy its purpose without bugs, crashes, or anything else that'll get in the way of your happiness. Great job guys! Suggestion to the creators of this wonderful app. If you ever decide to make any significant changes... Don't you dare. Create a second app and call it Pocket II. Don't mess with perfection. It's the demise of most great products. Ain't broke, don't fix it! Footnote: Any chance we can get a search and scroll feature on the widget, so we can locate links without going directly to the app?
  • Great and Appropriate Content

    I feel that there are many articles that are interesting to me. The app and emails show me good choices for my interests. The articles are well written and instructive and interesting. I’m a big fan of Pocket. Easy to save articles for reading.
  • Lovely aid to get my reading in

    By cfgkey
    I love this app because when using it (in addition to the browser add on), you can easily store and read stuff that piques your interest. Especially if you’re on the train or unable to access data service. Also the layout options really appeal to me because it can automatically switch from a day friendly to a night friendly/low light display. Pair that with the recommendations of other readers, makes this a bibliophile’s best friend!
  • Do not pay for premium -- also missing basic apps

    By Austin Aggie
    Adding to previous review: the app continues to add features that do not add value to me while losing or missing others. * document parsing is not as good as it used to be. That is a core function * premium search makes search unusable if you have large archives. Too many results that are simply noise. I would gladly pay if doing so didn’t degrade the experience. Below is my previous review and is still accurate. The app is losing key functionality year over year. There are now several other better options. My issues include: - cannot share a full article without first opening with safari. All other options save a snipet only. Most do not include the category tags. - the premium service addon includes tag suggestions, but the user must manually apply. Very significant workflow issue! - cannot limit number of items downloaded - UI has the button bar in awkward spot for iPad user
