Thank you for all your support!
After using this app for a little while, I can definitely say that "functional" is pushing it. I have no idea where all the 5 star reviews come from, if they're real. First, this app doesn't save what you think it saves (i.e. what you're seeing), but some partial portion that sometimes consists of only the ads and sometimes has huge holes in it. Bogus!!! What you can then do, is "view in browser" which tries to pull up the same link in Safari. This works about half the time, dumping you into Safari to view the original page. But why would I bother with this app if I can just put the site I was viewing into the Safari reading list? The other half of the time, something has changed about the URL and the information you thought you saved is gone. Really?? And this thing has 5 star reviews????
I recently found and switched to Offline Pages Pro, which does what this app should do. Oh, and it does it minus the activity tracking this developer clearly cares deeply about. I bet IT works perfectly.
Recommendations I'll actually read
Pocket has been my go to reading app for a long time. Clean interface, the sharing features I actually use and want, and integration with other apps have been longtime great features.
Recently, they've added incredible features. I mean it, top notch. The dictation feature is a years long wish of mine finally fulfilled, and now the recommendation feature, a feature I've personally never cared for in any other apps iterations, is one I think I'll finally use. Scrolling through, I couldn't find a single recommended article I wouldn't read. I'll be very happy to begin using this as my article discovery tool, and not just my ready app.
EDIT after recent update
My initial review a few months ago gave it a 5 star, after the new update today I would give it another star if I could. I was skeptical when I saw that a new recommend feature was added, as I've found that many websites and apps do an awful job of recommending what I might like, just terrible. But to my surprise the recommended articles pocket suggested after one day of trying out is very much in tune to my tastes. I chose to save half a dozen first try, really interesting to my taste. Job well done!
