“Pocket makes subway reading possible. No longer do your lingering Safari pages refresh mid-commute, leaving you staring at a blank, hopeless screen that cannot connect to the Internet.” - Slate

Amazing black hole of all my favorite Internet things
I absolutely love having a way to save valuable articles and other links. Sometimes it’s to keep forever but sometimes it’s to remind myself to read later when I don’t have the time.
I have used it for so long that I forget about what other things I’ve saved. It would be used more regularly to pass the time if I had the option to have a random generator so I can find old things I loved but forgot about since I save so many articles.
Would love to stumble through old saves.
No Offline Backup
Offline content downloaded to a device is not included in iTunes or iCloud backups. Think about that for a second and you’ll realize that any claims to support offline reading are, in any practical sense, false. Pocket has known this for years and done nothing about it (in fact the issue seems not to have occurred to them).
Look elsewhere for a usable offline reader.
The developer’s absurd response (below) only highlights their failure to comprehend how their product is used. I’ve been reporting this issue patiently for years, but nothing has been done or even, it seems, even understood.
My fave app on the iPhone
I really don’t get why it has only 3.5 average rating, but it’s my fave app. It’s able to save almost every article, from almost any source and without it I probably wouldn’t read half as much as I do.
