I couldn't be more pleased
I've used all sorts of bookmarking tools and they've never had a real effect on me. To this day I still use multiple at once but Pocket has secured it's spot as my go-to. It's really easy to use, actually motivates me to go back and read the things I've thought were interesting (but inevitably don't have time for) and it's accessible everywhere!
I think that last point is the most important because all of my most-used apps (Tweetbot, Flipboard, and Alien Blue) have Pocket integrated. Without this it would be more arduous, and even so, Pocket offers to automatically save things even if it's just a URL you've copied on your phone.
My only wish is that it was more integrated -- I'd love to see Chrome or Safari on iOS feature some integration with Pocket because then, it would be more than perfect.
Outstanding with one caveat
Pocket is simply one of the most useful, user-friendly, beautifully-designed and conceived apps I use. It is usually easier to read articles saved in Pocket than on the sites where the articles actually appeared.
My only hope is that Pocket will develop a full search capability. Finding articles is increasingly difficult for me and is slowly diminishing the product's effectiveness. It's a great paradox: the more one uses Pocket, the more necessary a search capability becomes. Even so, it's still a five-star app.
Elegant, Simple and Reliable
I love Pocket. The design is impeccable and it is a joy to use. Reading on Pocket is a treat and it's fantastic integration with just about every important app out there makes it a winner.
I seem to be in a minority though. I read through quite an extensive amount of the other reviews, but I did not see anyone else express a desire for the ability to annotate, highlight or underline articles. To me, having this function available would make Pocket a flawless app. Nonetheless it gets my five stars!
