  • Love the app; hate the redesign

    If you love endless expanses of white space, this is the reading app for you. If you like seeing more than 4 saved stories on your feed, then yearn like me for the Pocket of yore.
  • If it’s not broken, *please* don’t fix it.

    For some inexplicable reason, the feature that allowed me to listen to articles while reading them *simultaneously* has been disabled. This was my favorite Pocket feature. I’m profoundly disappointed.
  • Terrible upgrade

    Can no longer listen offline - have to be online to listen, so what is the point? It has ruined Pocket for me - the whole reason I had it was to listen offline - e.g, in an airplane, when I’m away from wifi. Why did you ruin the whole reason for having Pocket? I will never use Pocket again because I can’t without being able to use it offline.
  • Crash

    Can’t get YouTube videos to play half the time. Crashes halfway through. And no longer allows me to play videos in the background.
  • Removed offline TTS (iPhone)

    This 5 star app just went to 1 star with the removal of offline TTS (Text to Speech). You now have to be connected to the Internet and use your data plan to listen in your car.
  • Bug in listening the Chinese article

    The listening function is wrong when the url is a Chinese article.
  • New update is too glitchy

    The new update is WAY too glitchy. It just randomly freezes and closes me out. This is beyond annoying. If this does not get fixed soon, I’ll delete.
  • App is no longer useful

    1
    By Austex999
    This used to be my favorite app. I used it multiple times a day and recommended it to everyone. With the most recent changes, this app is no longer useful to me. The problems that were introduced with this new release are: 1) My prior use of the app has been to download articles and listen to them while I am away from home and offline. The app no longer allows me to listen to articles unless I am online. 2) When listening to an article, the controls periodically disappear and I am unable to pause an article. That is critical as there are times when I am interrupted and need to pause it. 3) This is minor, but I am no longer able to bulk edit and delete articles in my archive. Until the first two problems are solved, I will no longer be able to use Pocket.
  • Titles too small since update with no option to fix

    By Rik Bostin
    Size of fonts was great before. Now titles of articles are Far too small on the list view. Would be node if you provided an option to retain the old size which was viewable by humans.
  • Can’t log in

    By Chris Houser
    When I try to log in, this Pocket app says “password must be at least six characters” which is wrong because I have been logging into getpocket.com for years with my shorter password
