Customer Reviews

Fixed my two problems

I asked the Pocket Team that the article view text seemed a bit light and they said they’d consider changing it. They did. I was also having issues with Evernote a few minutes ago, and now the update fixed that. Thanks guys!

Best offline reading app

I discovered Pocket about a year and a half ago when looking for an application for my Kindle Fire. I spend a lot of time on planes and in areas where Wifi is not available and was looking for an application that would allow me to save articles to read later. Pocket has fit the bill. It works on all of my devices (MacBook, iPad, Kindle Fire HDX, and iPhone), syncs beautifully, and allows me to read offline. I love tagging things for quick searches, too. All in all, this application has done everything that I have asked for and — thankfully — has kept everything very simple. I hope it never changes.

A wonderful App

Jobs, school, family, kids, life…there are many things pulling for our daily time in the technologically advanced world. Unfortunately, certain things fall by the wayside and I believe longform reading is one of those increasing, unfortunate, sacrifices. POCKET changes that and allows us to take control of our time, our mind, and what we choose to read. The internet provides us with lots of information, fast but sometimes it can information overload. Often times I find myself clicking link after link on a topic after initially skimming the abstract or first paragraph. POCKET saves the articles for later viewing, allowing me time to give them proper attention and thought. It is simple, easy, and works across phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop devices. Furthermore, I find myself reading POCKET articles when I am away from my home wifi, allowing myself the pleasure of education at a moments notice. It is a seamless application, requiring little extra work except the click of a button. For website or mobile applications not supporting POCKET, you can send it via e-mail to a personalized POCKET e-mail address with no trouble and save your inbox from a deluge of reminders. Best of all, POCKET sends a weekly e-mail with recommended articles of various peruasions, providing the user with educational longform reads potentially not seen due to the information overload of the internet age. Personally, I enjoy longform reading on the weekends, especially articles from the New York Times or the New Yorker. POCKET is one-of-a-kind, prescient, simple, and seamless. I plan on using POCKET as long as it is around.
