Simple and Perfect
Some apps are so simple you think to youself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that’, or similarly, ‘Why do you need an app for that. It’s too simple?’. To me, Pocket falls in that category. I constantly navigate the web and quite often there is a larger article/page that I want to come back too. Of course Safari has it’s Reading List feature which ‘sort of’ does similiar things, but where Pocket excels in it’s ease of use and organization. Futher, with bookmarks and all the other functionaliy a browser has to offer, it’s nice to have something removed and separate if for nothing else simply organization.
The UI is very well done and the workflow clean and intutive. The shortcut feature to add a page is quite handy and allows for quick navigation. I can only imagine that over time they will add more features, as many rewviewers have noticed are currently lacking.
Again, great app. Can’t wait to see what’s coming in future releases.
Has quickly become a must-have
As a longtime iOS Instapaper user, I was reluctant to switch or even try Pocket, but I’m glad I did. It handles video (Instagram does not) and with a paid subscription you can forever save articles, enableing you to read them even if they are removed or later put behind a paywall. (A feature even the paid version of Instapaper does not offer.)
Overall I find this service and app indispensable. With this robust and fast Mac app I am able to easily take clean-formatted articles and print them ot PDF to save locally (or save them forever in Pocket's archive), and I use the iPad app to read long articles in bed.
My main (comparative) complaint is that Instapaper offers a better reading experience - a better selection of fonts and text-formatting. I haven’t lowered my Pocket rating in spite of this, but it is really something I wish they’d improve.
Finally, I wish that the iOS and Mac versions of Pocket worked more like each other. When deleting an article in the iOS app you’re asked to confirm, but the Mac app just lets you do it (although you can undo the last deletion). I think it would be a slightly better overall experience if the apps worked the same way, even if it were just to give us a Prefs option to confirm deletions.
I’ve been using pocket for over a year now and have been very happy with it.
Feedback was sent to add the little readability options in this progream that were present in the web version of pocket (things like making the backgorund black or sepia).
I not only got a response thanking me for offering a suggestion, but when the next update for Pocket came around, those options were there! Knowing how responsive the team is and how intent they were on making the small changes necessary to make this an easy to use and beautiful program convinces me that I’ve made the right choice here.
Also I’ve been using the IPhone app to read my saved articles and what-not while out of the house and it’s been awesome.
