Customer Reviews

Great but missing a few key capabilities

- Often you can’t tell when pocket hasn’t correctly interpretted a webpage. In those instances it’d be good for pocket to let the user know they may be better off viewing the article on the original webpage
- Having stats of my “pocketing” and reading habits would be very useful. I find that since I’ve started to use pocket my reading list keeps growing and it’s a never-ending game of catch up

Overall though I love this app, especially the new features to view by short reads, long reads, etc.

Great usibility

I love this app. Prefect for air travel when I don’t normall get internet access. It help me focus on the content by filtering the noise on a web page. It’d be better if I can organize the articles in folders. I will give it a 5 star rating when that happens.

Never Miss a Story

With life being so fast pace I often don’t have time to read everything interesting that pops up, but at least now I can save it to read later.
And whenever I’m bored there’s always something to catch up on.
