Great article collection app
Ever since I downloaded the app, I've been using it every day to collect articles I would like to come back to or articles I don't have time to read at the moment.
It's highly convenient with its article saving function built into several news apps. Otherwise, you can email the article link to yourself or copy the link and open Pocket, upon which the app asks whether you want to save the link.
My only gripe is that tagging can't be done straight from the article view (WHY not?). You have to come out to the list view, select the article (or several), and then click the tag function to add tags. Also you can't add tags from the web viewer, not sure why.
In addition, I hope one day iOS will allow Pocket to be added to the built-in functions (like Facebook and Twitter are), to allow for even faster article clipping.
Hooray to Pocket's excellent work, and a big thank you to my friend who introduced me to Pocket.
I cannot believe this fabulous app doesn't have a review. Since I am trying to review apps that I love and use regularly here we go. I use Pocket every single day! I use it on my phone. Desktop and iPad to save and read articles later. I use it to go back and read links later from twitter and other apps. This is a must have if you devour news and info and there are just too many things you want to go back and read later completely. You can tag articles so that you can look them up later by a key word. You can archive articles so that they are saved if you ever want to get back to them. You can also share any of the links you share on social media sites. You must. Absolutely must get this app.
The easiest and the most convenient way to share links and bookmarks between different devices and friends. I prefer Pocket over its competitors as it is reliable and aesthetically pleasing with all the features I need.
As a read-it-later app, auto-justification with proper hyphenation looks pretty good and enhances the readability of the articles. I'm also thrilled with the background syncing. However I hope to see something like Instapaper's tilt-to-scroll feature in future updates.
