Needs work.  anthony12275  3 star

My main gripe w/ this app is the recommendations. They take so long to update them. I've seen stories on there that are weeks old. Sometimes they will take stories down and put them back up later on. Overall the rest of the app is good.


No Longer For Me...  DigitalEl  4 star

Pocket still does what it says on the tin, but with a lot of cruft. Developers have to make money, I get that. But what started as a lightweight read it later app has ballooned into a kind of bloated mess. I prefer to pay a fair price for software... Not 99-cents, but a real fair, set-by-its-creator price. This freemium model, with the in-app purchases to make things complete... No thanks. I'm currently using Instapaper.


Almost there...  SprintHunterAllDay  3 star

Just started using this app and I must say that I like the layout. Simple but practical. It is missing some basic features such as highlighting and adding notes via Apple Pen. Any chance these features will be coming in the very near future?


Love the app (update 1 year later)  Dudalpg  3 star

(Update) I live the app but I am not being able to use it lately. It's pretty frustrating. I cannot save articles, read them or even navigate the app. Please help ******* This app is amazing. I am never missing interesting articles again. I have this app in all my devices


Favorite productivity app.  mrparet90  4 star

I've been using the app for years and have rarely had a problem. As for those complaining about the ads, nothing in life is free, and the developers can't make a living if every user is a free-loader. I will echo another reviewer's sentiment that articles are not pushing to my devices in the background as reliably as they used to. More annoyingly, though, is that the app doesn't yet support the 10.5 iPad display: the UI is blown up and text is quite blurry. I can only hope that supporting this new screen size is on the developer's list of priorities.

Latest changes are a step in the wrong direction  Rgsmith1980  2 star

I used to be a heavy user of the app to find content while I was away from the laptop. When the developers started trialing the horizontal scrolling feeds, I gave them my input on how cumbersome it was. Very sad to see this is now the main style of navigation for the app. I'm using Pocket far less than I was and only adding to my reading list from the desktop.


Glitchy  Amber0246  2 star

I've been using this app for quite some time now, and I haven't experienced any problems up until this past month or so. When I attempt to save an article, it doesn't save until several hours or even several days later. This has been a consistent issue lately. I've also noticed articles showing up twice, and when deleting one copy, the app automatically deletes the other.


Getting greedy  Paa80  1 star

Use to be free now charging for add free. This latest version puts unsolicited ADDS right in the middle of your personal reading list! And they are now charging to get rid of these annoying adds. Come on! Either make it free, make a one time purchase price but don't stick it to us like this. This stinks, you're getting greedy and this app is just not worth $50+ bucks a year. I will no longer recommend this App.

DOESN'T WORK, use Instapaper instead  the shower's worst enemy  1 star

POCKET DOESN'T WORK. You cannot save articles from Safari. It doesn't even give an error message. It just does nothing. Useless. Luckily, INSTAPAPER WORKS GREAT. Use that instead.


Constant Issues  dapjang  1 star

Doesn't stay logged in, extension breaks. Other apps never have these issues


Won't stay logged in  Diesel314159  1 star

Nuff said. Great app clearly something not working correctly


Latest version not working  tm.frmk  2 star

Every second or third time I open the app, it makes me log in again and then runs me through an (unneeded) intro to how it works. Very difficult to use right now.


Best app on the market for content sharing  Mev1000  5 star

I use pocket to save my articles that I want to share later. The best part of the app is there is no storage limit. Awesome!


Does not save NY Times articles  Trksak  3 star

Just realized today that I could not save a NY Times article using Safari. After loading the article via their app, I clicked on the box with the upward pointing arrow and chose Pocket to save the article (as I did with many other articles today). I went immediately to Pocket - nothing! Why?


Loooove pocket!  RockSteady0625  5 star

One of my favorite and most useful apps.


Need Filters For Recommended Tab  KwikSand  1 star

Seriously, enough already! Allow me to filter out specific websites from Recommended Tab

Farai Gandiya

Superb App with some issues  Farai Gandiya  5 star

I've been using Pocket for a while now, and I really love it. It lets me save links and it syncs them across all of my devices. The recommended feature does a really good job of bringing articles from all over the internet for me to read (and waste hours on). The politics on the recommended tab gets annoying sometimes. I have two issues with the app though. For one, when I read a recommended story and click back, the feed refreshes and the article disappears. The second is that the explore feature found on the browser extensions isn't in the iOS app. In all, it's great!
