  • Updated review pending fix...

    By JayJizzleNupey
    Note: The developers reached out and said they’d fix this soon. I will adjust review once that’s done. Have fixed rating. The last “update” somehow messed up the speed controller when you “listen” to articles. The default is super fast and even if you change it to a slower speed, the setting resets itself when you go to the next article. So you have to keep resetting it. Also, when you switch from portrait mode the reader stops. Please fix these bugs. This app was incredible now it’s barely usable.
  • Reader setting is to fast

    By Jt0512
    Love the app, but I noticed from the update that the reader setting always reverts back on every single article. Where as before it would stay at the previous setting from the previous article. Please change this back as it is very annoying to have to change this for every single article instead of just hitting play.
  • Needs work.

    By anthony12275
    Still haven't updated recommendations. Pretty good app but starting to look for similar apps that have more up to date stories. They take so long to update them. I've seen stories on there that are weeks old. Sometimes they will take stories down and put them back up later on. Another issue I didn't write about last time is the app will randomly crash and close. Doesn't happen everyday but it does happen. Overall the rest of the app is good.
  • Made dramatically worse by update

    By Laffo
    The release notes for the most recent update don't even mention the main thing it does: remove a basic feature and force you to buy a subscription to get it back. Basically, you can no longer adjust the line height of the text in articles now unless you pay a monthly or yearly fee. This basic, necessary feature had previously been built-in and free. In a really scummy move, the developers also significantly reduce the default line height in this update, making the text squished and very unpleasant to read. They've clearly done this intentionally to push people towards buying a subscription so they can undo it and get the app back to where it used to be. Deliberately making your app worse isn't going to make people want to pay for it. It's going to make them want to delete it.
  • Indispensable

  • 5 Stars For Sure!!

    By ChristianLadyM
    I love having Pocket available to store so many things I see and what to keep for future reference. I use to so many printed copies and tons of paper use. I tried to remember where I'd put it and in what notebook, if it made it that far! No more lost copies! Don't mess with my Pocket App, just keep making it user friendly and running smoothly!
  • My app is not syncing

    By Isaac239
    It's been a few days since I've saved articles to my Google extension and none of them have synced to my iPhone app. Actually, I'm getting a stuck spinner when I try to reload anything in the app, what gives? - Iphone 7 - up to date ios - up to date app
  • Taking away the dark setting is weak.

    By hubrisless
    I use this all the time, it's a great app. At night I like catching up on all the articles I put in Pocket during the day. Unfortunately, they recently took the option make the text field dark with light text away, making it available only with a premium subscription. Like I said, it's a great app but I don't think it's worth $60 per year, and taking features away from the free version is a slimy way to promote the paid version. It makes me want to financially support their developers all the less.
  • The Pocket Phenomina

    By Clarifier1
    The service this App renders is very helpful and useful. It is user friendly, which means the programmers have thought of all possible obstacles the user might face and resolve it. All I can say keep up the good work for happy pocketing.
  • Simple App that has Huge Benefits

    By Bronx Bus
    Like all reviewers say, having articles at hand at anytime of the day is amazing. Instead of reading through news feeds or random headlines, articles you save or that are recommended allow a much better news/reading experience. Give it a try!
