    Cannot even log in thanks to your stupid system. Getting error codes just to log in? Deleted my account.
  • Great overall, lacks one critical function

    Easy to use, compatible with all content! However, if I’m highlighting something it’s likely because I have a thought about it that I need to capture. Pocket does not have a note or annotation functionality which only makes it half useful to need.
  • Love Love this app

    I’ve found Pocket to be incredibly essential in how I have organized and saved content. However, as a long-time user of the website version, I was surprised to find that I can’t browse or search by tags in the app. It seems like an important feature to overlook, especially when you’re searching for something in a tiny screen.
  • A gift to procrastinators everywhere!

    Tired of having a hundred browser tabs open at once? Save articles to read offline, anytime.
  • Quality app, but room for improvement

    Ultimately, Pocket is a quality app. It serves as intended — easy cataloging, simple highlighting, and decent-to-great UI. But after each use, I’m left thinking that there is so much more that is possible. Some additions that come to mind: - Multi-colored highlights - Better iPadOS/MacOS shortcuts (e.g., shortcut to highlight using keyboard commands) - In-line note-taking that are linked w/ highlights - Zooming capabilities w/ trackpad - Multi-window capabilities Having used the Pocket app for 5y+, I appreciate the incremental changes over time. However, I believe there is much room for a more intuitive app experience
  • Very slow

    Tried this app to help with organizing my “read later” thoughts. Every screen lags, my content that I saved from safari eventually came up but I had to look at it from behind a loading symbol. I’ll go back to bookmarks
  • Dependable

    I've been using this app for years. Never lost a copy.
  • Widget links are broken

    Tapping a link to an article from the widget hardly ever works. It opens the app but then just hangs and never opens the article. Fix it.
  • Perfect Pocket Plus

    Pocket allows a reader to put aside enticing articles until they have time to read them, maybe while waiting in a doctor’s office or on the bus or subway, or perhaps just at home in a spare moment. Pocket seems copious in size, because no matter how many articles I save, there’s always room for another—and another—and another! Download and enjoy!
  • Much to love, much to be improved

    If the Search function worked, I’d give this app five stars, but it’s been broken for YEARS now. You can type the exact title of an article in Search and Pocket won’t find it (I’ve contacted support about this a few times, but they haven’t been able to fix it). This is especially bad if you expect to use the app as your main library for remembering and retrieving articles. My favorite feature is text to speech, but it’s glitchy. In the future I’d love to see the text scroll as it’s being read (like the VoiceDream app has done for years). Note: I have the paid version, but I think the features for the free version are similar. Anyway, keep up the good work Pocket Team, and please squash those bugs!
