What's New in Version 6.6.0
We're excited to (finally) add support for Split Screen and Slide Over on iPad! You can now take notes as you're reading, text with your friends, and use Pocket alongside your favorite apps without skipping a beat.
This update also includes a number of under-the-hood changes to make sure that Pocket is ready for iOS 11. Get excited!
Still haven't updated recommendations. Pretty good app but starting to look for similar apps that have more up to date stories. They take so long to update them. I've seen stories on there that are weeks old. Sometimes they will take stories down and put them back up later on.
Another issue I didn't write about last time is the app will randomly crash and close. Doesn't happen everyday but it does happen.
Overall the rest of the app is good.
Reader setting is to fast
Love the app, but I noticed from the update that the reader setting always reverts back on every single article. Where as before it would stay at the previous setting from the previous article. Please change this back as it is very annoying to have to change this for every single article instead of just hitting play.
Made dramatically worse by update
The release notes for the most recent update don't even mention the main thing it does: remove a basic feature and force you to buy a subscription to get it back.
Basically, you can no longer adjust the line height of the text in articles now unless you pay a monthly or yearly fee. This basic, necessary feature had previously been built-in and free.
In a really scummy move, the developers also significantly reduce the default line height in this update, making the text squished and very unpleasant to read. They've clearly done this intentionally to push people towards buying a subscription so they can undo it and get the app back to where it used to be.
Deliberately making your app worse isn't going to make people want to pay for it. It's going to make them want to delete it.
