Perhaps I am misunderstanding something. I save to Pocket, but when I go to read saved offline content, it tells me article was not downloaded & to check settings. I have to click on every article to download it to offline storage. I thought this was what the app was designed to do. Would someone please advise?¿
An annoying change after the last update: when I am in the list of tagged articles and finish reading one, the back arrow will return me to the general list of all saved items. Then I have to chose the tag again and scroll down for the next article… it only happens on my tablet and not on the phone. UPDATE: After the last update, when I select lit of articles based on tag, go to the article and return back after a very short period of time, it brings me back to the list. BUT, if I spend a longer period of time reading an article – such as a couple of minutes – it will again bring me back to the full Pocket list.

I am misunderstanding something. I save to Pocket, all the time but when I go to read saved offline content, it tells me article was not downloaded & to check settings. I have to click on every article to download it to offline storage. I thought this was what the app was designed to do. its great just wished more sites permitted Pocket’s Use
Was great. Now keeps crashing on my phone and on my computer. Does not save or saves but not with the tag i wrote. Does not show already made tags names. On phone crashes before it saves everytime! then when saving again tells me the link is already saved but with no tag. What the hell is going on? can not work with this at all!! . HELP PLEASE!!
I love this app. It’s great for battery life for long reads (my Nexus 6p has 9+ hrs SOT!). It makes it easy to have a clean reading experience. However, it’s most recent update has changed the behavior of the app after archiving what you’ve read it will forget your place and I have scroll back down after every article to select the articles to read in order that I added them–this is very frustrating :/. I also don’t like how pocket handles articles that it can’t scrape well. It will show nothing resume that just downloading the web page for offline reading.
I havent updated this app for weeks and when i decided to do it, i got annoyed because you guys had made some unnecesarry updates. Please bring back the tags drawer to the right of the screen. Or if possible there should be an option for it in the settings if the user wants it on the left or the right of the screen. I also hate it when i read articles from my tags and when i finish reading it, i am back on the main page instead of staying on the tag where i clicked the article.
The only app that has stayed on my phone since installing it. The only app i have ever raved about to friends and family. No fuss, no bs.. does its job. Does it well
I liked the app very much, however, last couple of weeks is a nightmare. Articles are not scraped fully, and very often a substantial part of it is just cut. This happens rather often, about 30-40% of the articles I save.
Was perfect until the new update that put back at the top of the list at each action. Very annoying, please fix this asap 🙂
It’s one of the best app for true & correct utilisation of smartphone & latest technology, and also with fair utilisation of time. It’s getting better with every update. A tip – it would be very useful if I can sort the articles according to time required to read whether ascending or descending.
A very useful app,loved its interface and every article is worth reading. One suggestion-please include more articles from different topics and subjects.
After I sync and download a content, images in the content appear on my ipad but not on my android device. Is this a bug?
Please revert the behaviour of the brightness. I cannot set it low enough because it is higher in this application only.
Love the up to date news links. Helpful to me and shared with my son as well.
Thanks for helping me to change my life… Thanks a lot… Really awesome app.. it has become my daily habit
Excellent article reading app. I use it mostly for offline reading. Without it, having a smartphone would be pointless.
Works well… Little problems so far… If you could add estimated reading time of each article… That would be great
Pocket Just downloaded 5 March 2017, I’ll review and advise of my findings. All the news and information I need to read at a moment in a busy scheduled day. Update: 29 June 2018
The app is pretty useful. I think there can be some kind of dictionary/Wikipedia integration with it to make reading easier and better.
Not as good as Instapaper. I wish it did a better job of converting web pages to readable articles, but it seems to think many web pages that contain only text can’t be converted. Funny thing is Instapaper converts the same web pages just fine. If my Kobo e-reader would sync with Instapaper instead of Pocket I wouldn’t even bother with this app.
I started using Pocket back in time when it was called Read it later. It was on the iPhone 3G when smartphones were on the start. I used it a lot as a student whenever I could. The app itself changed through the time, but the core service remained same. However, I’m no longer a student and I don’t have same amount of time which I can spend for reading. And this is a point where another great part of the Pocket comes to the play – you can listen the written articles. It means that you can save them for later as before but instead of reading them, which requires your full attention, you can listen to them (for example when commuting). Listening is possible in many languages, you can speed it up to save more time and audio is played in the background. Another great thing is that Pocket is integrated into many third party apps on the other ecosystems (like windows), so you can save the articles directly from them. Thank you for the great experience which I have with the Pocket from the start!
The main issue I have with this app is the intrusive ads, which were added in the last year or so. I wish developers would find a better way to make a profit (e.g. offering advanced features).
This app drives me up the wall. What’s the point in using it if every other time I go to read one of my saved articles it tells me it needs to re-download? Purpose defeated. I bet there’s something open-source that does the job ten times better.
Great app for offline reading across devices. I am giving it a 3 star because there is a security issue. When I changed the account password via web, the app didn’t sign out from other devices.
The app refreshes the content everytime at launch. During this time the app is hung up and unusable. Request the developers to look into this.Other than this no problem with the app.
Best way I’ve found to clip and save curated items or anything you want to reference later. Many apps will only grab a URL to the article of interest. Pocket will clip the whole thing and show in its native slightly condensed format or allow you to view a clip in web format making the article look just like the original. Great for work or play.

Seems potentially useful. Already hit a hurdle in that it keeps converting my tags to lower case, but leaves articles tagged with the mixed case version, and the tag view is case-sensitive. Also, needs an option to open in my browser instead of the internal one.
The app is good and I’ve been using it for some time but I’ve recently into an issue. When I store the articles on external memory, they are shown as ‘page not available’. I have to connect to the internet again. This happens repeatedly. I’m reduced to using the app to just store links since my phone’s internal mem isn’t enough.

One of my most used apps! Let’s me keep the articles I’d like to keep or want to read later all together. Pocket is one of my favourite apps. I also love the “picks” they send. Nice reading…
It is a very pleasing app with a lot of interesting articles. However, I see that there are some uncertified articles which disappoint me a bit. So, I hope you remove all the uncertified articles from the app.
A very useful app. P.S- Although I have disabled background sync and auto refresh, yet the app downloads my saved articles when I use the app for sometime. Is this a bug or what?
Very useful. I wish the offline capability works on desktop browser, too. But just for this mobile app: it’s great. EDIT: So I’m thinking buying it, pre-paying it with Play Store Voucher for an entire year. I can’t help but notice it cost just roughly 100k Rupiah for a year. Do you drop a zero or two? That seems way too cheap.
nice app, gives diversity of reads easy user interface feeds can be customized by following people of one’s interests offline reads is very good feature giving 4 rating because 1) read out text feature is very monotonous 2) night reading feature shall be there
Well-designed, easy to use, and efficient. I was first introduced to it through Firefox, and have been using it on every single machine that I’ve got ever since. Indispensable.
Is it not meant for offline reading? Even if I refresh several times and swipe down to force refresh, the articles won’t download.
Guys really like your text to Speech feature..Can make the offline mode better.. Cheers!
great place to store websites that you cannot read now, but you can reader offline, just save it pocket. It’s even better than you can imagine. Lots of articles and news.
I have been looking for an app which does what this app is doing.Just one thing improve the speed of saving the web pages as APUS Browser. Tons of salutes to the developers.
