What's New in Version 6.5.14
• Minor bug fixes and improvements
Favorite productivity app.
I've been using the app for years and have rarely had a problem. As for those complaining about the ads, nothing in life is free, and the developers can't make a living if every user is a free-loader. I will echo another reviewer's sentiment that articles are not pushing to my devices in the background as reliably as they used to. More annoyingly, though, is that the app doesn't yet support the 10.5 iPad display: the UI is blown up and text is quite blurry. I can only hope that supporting this new screen size is on the developer's list of priorities.
No Longer For Me...
Pocket still does what it says on the tin, but with a lot of cruft. Developers have to make money, I get that. But what started as a lightweight read it later app has ballooned into a kind of bloated mess. I prefer to pay a fair price for software... Not 99-cents, but a real fair, set-by-its-creator price. This freemium model, with the in-app purchases to make things complete... No thanks. I'm currently using Instapaper.
I've been using this app for quite some time now, and I haven't experienced any problems up until this past month or so. When I attempt to save an article, it doesn't save until several hours or even several days later. This has been a consistent issue lately. I've also noticed articles showing up twice, and when deleting one copy, the app automatically deletes the other.
