TTS NOT WORK 1/5

No true black theme for iPhone X 1/5
No true black theme for iPhone X. Pocket should be ashamed they’ve taken this long to implement such an obvious feature.
One of my top 10 apps 5/5
By Johnny Appleseed1
There are a million ways to save and view articles these days but this is my favorite both because the reading interface is so customizable AND because their curated list of weekly reads (based on your interests I think) are really excellent. If you like to save articles to read later on your phone and on your computer in one convenient cloud location, this is a great choice. Also dark mode is great for reading in bed.
Best way to read current events 5/5
I love being able to save articles to Pocket so that I can come back when I have time to relax and read.
Great articles at your fingertips 5/5
How can you not love an app that selects and delivers a wide range of interesting, well researched and well written articles to you on a daily basis?
Needs OLED Optimization 4/5
Great app, but it would be even better if the dark theme was optimized for OLED screens on newer iPhones.
Listen mode 3/5
I used to love listening to articles as I read along. Just noticed this feature was removed. I can read. OR listen. Why can’t it be both? This is a terrible feature to lose. Why??
Always crashed 2/5
By Read it later user
Always crashed after opening the apps.
WISH I COULD ARCHIVE NON ARTICLE TEXTS FOR OFFLINE READING. WOULD MAKE THIS THE PERFECT APP 3/5
WISH I COULD ARCHIVE NON ARTICLE TEXTS FOR OFFLINE READING. WOULD MAKE THIS THE PERFECT APP
Abosolutely LOVE the new UI! 5/5
Update March 2010: voice just keeps on getting better. Now it is already at the level where you can use it everyday and understand the articles. Thanks again! Downloaded files still hog my device storage and need to be manually deleted from time to time. Hope a fix is scheduled sometime in the future.
Been a user for years since the ReadItLater and prior days. Great new UI. Please keep it up! The voice reader is better as well. The check/read button is a tad more difficult to reach using the thumb. Hope the downloaded files get to be auto deleted as well in future releases. Thanks for the continuous app updates!
Saved articles before a flight and they weren’t available 1/5
I downloaded this app before a flight, followed the directions to enable the Share extension, saved a few Wikipedia articles and when we got in the air, I opened the app (saw the titles saved), but they were grayed out and not available.
I’m sure there’s something else I have to do to make them available for offline reading, but it’s not immediately apparent.
My one star is not because the app doesn’t work (I wouldn’t know), it’s because the design doesn’t clearly tell you how to save something for offline reading when you install it.
Keeps Getting Better & Better 5/5
By Coqui Unlimited
The only reading app needed now you can listen to your saved content too! A plus for people that are unable to read for whatever reason. Reading an article has never been easier.
Great job creators!
Please add these features. 4/5
Always open in untagged view would be nice.
Custom Tag colors.
Go to app 5/5
Love, love, love pocket’s ability to help me remember articles I need to read, reference and share across iPhone and windows devices. Long time user, first time reviewer.
After my wife, Pocket next! 5/5
This is undoubtedly one of the best apps I can’t do without in a day. And to think it’s free amazes me every day.
Going downhill 2/5
Honestly, pocket used to be one my most indispensable apps (I was in the top 5% of users) before the major overhaul. Things that used to be better:
-being able to read along with the text
-clunky advertising spammed throughout the list
-articles not fully downloading and stopping at random points
-not saving your place on a given article
I hope it gets better, but I’m not holding my breath
Ok app. 2/5
My main gripe with this App is why they recommend articles that you either need to pay for or need a username and password.
Also have synching issues across different devices.
Could be better.
Very disappointing 1/5
By Rusty’s dad
I wanted something to organize my websites, etc. Instead I see all these suggested articles I have no interest in reading. I finally gave up trying to get rid of these articles so I could organize my content.
Excellent app 5/5
As I find interesting articles(on Twitter, online news) that demand attentive reading, I stash them away on pocket across my iPhone and desktop.
The reading experience and recommendations are fabulous as well. One of my favorite apps
No Offline 2/5
Why can I no longer listen offline? That’s a Downgrade not an Upgrade!
The best app for saving articles 5/5
So much better than Evernote and Instant. Plus you can access your saved content offline from some eReaders- very well organized with tags.
Pocket is useful 4/5
I like the time savings associated with it.
Pretty good. 3/5
I say pretty good because it will save most small websites. Will not save larger pdf's on iPhone 8.
Amazing app ... doesn’t support VPN 1/5
Such a great and useful/efficient idea yet hell bent on tracking what you do ... doesn’t support VPN.
Me encanta la app aunque ahira es que la voy usar en iOS
Has been helpful so far but... 4/5
Being able to take notes (like in Books) for the things I highlight in articles could be a useful feature to implement.
Being able to 3D Touch links in articles to preview them right then and there could also be beneficial to users as well.
Love Pocket - don’t love this glitch 4/5
Pocket is great, but developers should know that when I click on a story from my “pocket summary email”, it takes me to a page that says “this article has been saved to your pocket” (or whatever). But it never saves. I have to click and open the actual article to get it to save. Which is fine, but for the program to tell me it’s saved, and then the articles aren’t there - is an issue. Have you found this happening to others?
It’s simple to use! It’s so much easier reading articles this way.
i really want.. 2/5
to like this app more than i do...it refuses to actually respond to my preferences, no matter how many times i tell it i don’t want to see articles about politics and especially about Trump...and it seems to favor sources, like the Times and the Post, that require me to pay them to read anything but the blurb, which is a waste of space on the feed...oh well, nice try Mozilla...
Subscription is not worth it. 4/5
Great app! I use it frequently. You should really rethink your marketing strategy because for $4.99 a month doesn’t seem worth it. I would gladly pay a “one time fee” of $4.99. For the “full” application. The extras that you get aren’t worth a subscription.
By Taylor Angello
Perfect app filled with interesting articles at your convenience!
Doesn’t open 1/5
Ever since I downloaded the app, I can’t open it anymore.
Best App 5/5
Best app I have ever downloaded. And the one I use most often. To be able to organize and save articles for later, when I’m sorting through so much information is very valuable. And it lets me be much more selective about what I share.
A paying member request 4/5
Please consider adding the text back to the article when in audio mode. I like being able to highlight while listening. I renewed my membership in December 2018 and will do so again if this feature is added back. Thank you.
Slight problem 5/5
I love this app, but I think there’s something wrong with it. I’ve been trying to clear out articles that I won’t get around to reading or that have broken links. Every time I delete an article or move it to a different tag, it comes right back where it was. And it won’t let me add tags to some of the untagged items because they show a tag but stay under untagged. I’ve never had trouble with this app before, so idk if it’s a bug or what, but it’s extremely annoying.
Great app 5/5
What can be said other than this is a must app have for me. I commute on a train to and from work and at times have shady service so this app has been great. It allows me to continue to read the articles I am interested in without skipping a beat. Using tags allows me to quickly find what I want to read.
Night mode is awesome too!
Best way to stay on top of your reading list 5/5
With pocket, I get to track my reading habits, ensure I always have access to the articles I tag - even offline during flights! - while also being able to find them in the future.
I used to have trouble "losing" bookmarked articles, and never being able to find articles that I liked and wanted to share with friends.
One cool thing I've managed to do is use external apps to move Pocket articles to Kindle. It works fine but I wish the app would have it as a native feature.
Regardless .. Pocket solved the most aggravating issues I had. I've already recommended it to many people and will continue to do so.
Just put it in your Pocket 5/5
Ok listen. I actually freakin love Pocket. I just put up a post on my social media raving about it before I got the “write a review?” pop-up in the app. And I’m like: Yeah Pocket, sure. I got you. You’ve never done me dirty and I GOT YOU. So like: I save articles from online to my Pocket and just read them on my commute. The easy of transitioning within the app, the beauty of how the articles are presented in a readable format, the little info bar that tells me how long I can expect a read to take.. all gold. I would love to be in Pocket commercials to rant about it to the world. Love you Pocket. xoxo-Bateman
Highlights missing 5/5
After updating, all of my highlights are missing? Is this a bug or are they truly gone?
*** UPDATE 2019-01-30 ***
Thanks for fixing the issue with highlights!
*** UPDATE 2018-10-19 ***
It appears that you can only view your highlights that you have in your list and not your archived articles. What’s the point of highlighting articles if you can’t see all of them? It would be nice if highlights included both your list and archived articles.
Great app 5/5
By Flatpicker 916
There are many times I see something online I want to save and Pocket saves pages with one click instantly.
What is wrong with the new version. 1/5
It was great, but now the app turns into hell. Before, I was able to listen while reading the text, but now, I can’t!!! It won’t let me. I wish I never updated!
Left leaning articles 1/5
Oh look an article about Trump is a bro-fascist Nazi sympathizer. Left leaning stories sympathetic to one side of the political debate are ubiquitous but S.F. based Pocket has decided we need more of these in our newsfeed. I have enough of that in my twitter feed, social media and on and on. Goodbye.
A top 10 app 3/5
By Aaron pdx
I have relied on Pocket ever since I discovered it. Nice integration with the desktop browser, and quality interface. Unfortunately the latest re-design has ambiguous icons and is painfully slow displaying saved items.
A beautiful, incredibly efficient app!!! 5/5
This app provides exactly what it promises in a simple, efficient format with no superfluous addendums or complications. I unhesitatingly offer 5 stars!!!
Fantastic 👍🏾 5/5
This is the best app!
New update, still no offline listening... 1/5
By tommy 22's
...which wouldn’t be that much of an issue if I could still listen with the native iPhone tts. Usually I listen at work, where I don’t have access to the WiFi, but now when I click on articles they dont even open. At home on WiFi I open an article it downloads, if I back out and reopen the article it has to download again, back out and it has to download again, and again, and again endlessly, if i click on an article when not on WiFi they don’t even open, there are maybe a random 2 or 300 articles that work correctly, out of the well over 5000 I have saved. I’ve had this app for like 6 or 7 years, it’s been my absolute favorite since the day I got it, told friends and coworkers about it all the time, the old version before this new overhaul worked flawlessly, even in airplane mode, still waiting for this app that was never originally broken to be fixed...
Best productivity booster ever 5/5
Extremely useful to be able to save my reading for later when I am offline and have time. Also very convenient to have multiple page articles in a single stream. Also like the aesthetics of the pictures pulled in from the original. The suggested readings emails are also a nice touch. Thanks so much! I also bet there is a way to jump to the top of an article, but I have yet to figure it out.
Still buggy for iOS 10+ 2/5
I'm still having problems downloading entire articles. Sometimes it doesn't download the entire article. And it will also get stuck in an article, I have to close out the entire app to be able to get out of it. This app is way too popular to still have these kind of issues. I also pay for this monthly. I don't have any issues with the desktop version of it, but the iOS version still needs a lot of work.
