    Pocket - A wonderful app for capturing articles of interest

    For months now I’ve been using Pocket to capture articles and stories of interest, primarily from browsers, either on my phone, my tablet, or my PC. The user interface to capture articles could not be more simple. I often find I do not have the time to read an article immediately, so I save it to Pocket so I can leisurely read it later on. This also saves me time having to look up the article since I might not even remember where I saw it. The other benefit is that Pocket removes all the annoying advertisements and links that distract you while reading. I also like the fact that Pocket organizes all of your saved articles in one place allowing me to print an article or share with a friend later on. I’ve shared my love of Pocket with many other individuals - all who have thanked me very much for sharing such a timesaving and convenient tool for capturing information of interest.

    Pocket makes life worth living

    This incredible app helps me focus on great stories and spend my device-time in a more positive, constructive, productive and fulfilling ways. Scrolling through Apple News today left me feeling empty. So I hopped over to Pocket and read 3 stories that I had saved. One article I read, I’d saved from the Pocket content feed in the Firefox New Tab — THE reason to switch to Firefox is to get Pocket article recommendations BTW (and ALSO better privacy). On the bus today, rather than reading crap, or scrolling through attention-grabbing headlines on Apple and Google news, I read an article about the gut microbiome, the state of glaciers in Alaska, and an article for work. And I learned something. Pocket is my favorite first-screen app that keeps me from wasting time on Insta/other places...and helps me stay sane, get smarter, focus on the things I care about. 6-stars for Pocket. 😀

    much better than apple’s ibooks

    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! 💓

    Crashes on opening - FIXED

    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.

    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.
