Customer Reviews

Great integration with my other most used apps

I love Pocket - it’s perfectly invisible until you need it. Being able to save directly from Twitter, Facebook or the browser on any of my devices is effortless, and then being able to access my saved articles from any device has made me much more likely to read longer, more involved pieces of writing than I used to. The UI is almost perfect, just a few occasional issues with interpreting where images should show up in the article flow.

My most used app

Brilliant app. Pocket provides an extremely easy and quick way of storing articles in one place. Its intergration with my second most used app, Tweetbot, is invaluable as most of the articles I read I find through twitter. Lastly, the seemless sync between my iphone and mac pocket apps is flawless, and means I can read my articles wherever I am and whenever I want.

Can’t fault this app!!


Like all the best software, there’s little to say except that it just works. It does what it does and it does it really well. I use it all the time for trips when I have lots to read / catch up on, but intermittent or no wifi connection. Couldn’t do without it now!
