Indispensible!!! - I have been using Pocket for a while now, and have compared it with many “similar” applications. Seriously, there are none that even come close. I use Evernote, and have found that the web clipper, Skitch and all the other companion apps just do not do the same kind of simple job of getting an articles and PDF’s onto all my devices (and thus into Evernote) as simply and elegantly as Pocket does. Whether it’s emailed, or something interesting you see on the internet, or even if you wish to use IFTTT to get certain updates on topics that you enjoy, you will see that Pocket gets it done. There are Pocket extentions that work as perfectly with Chrome as with Safari (and probably others), which makes my life so much easier. Once in Pocket, you can easily share articles, and much more. It’s a great application, and a must have for all!
My Favorite Tool; My Least Favorite App - I've been a paid subscriber to Pocket Premium since the first day it was offered. And I recommend it to everyone, adding that they need to go with the paid version - it's an amazing deal. BUT... This is the single worst application on my computer. I haven't deleted it in hopes that it will soon match the online version, but I never use it. I can't. I have 400+ articles saved in my Pocket and it's impossible to navigate through them with the desktop application. As a digital marketer who leads UX/UI testing for a large agency, I'm imploring you to fix this. Throw the desktop application for mac out the window and start over. Half of the entire agency (500+) would probably have started using Pocket if it had a usable desktop version. Please. I'm not going to end my subscription, I just want to use the desktop app while in the office since I'm already running 30+ extensions and have 20+ browser windows open.

Latest update REQUIRES High Sierra - The “maintenance update [that] adds support for macOS High Sierra” actually REQUIRES High Sierra - it will not install on Sierra (10.12) or lower. Boo! This seems like an over sight on Pockets side; why dont they fix it?
Not compatible - Latest update added support for High Sierra, but also seems to have removed support for older versions of macOS! Not okay.
High Sierra "support" is a hard requirement - Unlike Apple, whom supports 2-3 previous versions, Pocket decided to just force High Sierra on everyone or not receive updates. How thoughtful and diplomatic.
High Sierra Mandatory? - I can’t install the app in my new Mac OS because of this 10.13 requirement. I get the update is not necessary for other MacOS versions, but a brand new install is also getting blocked. This is some bad software engineering in place right here. #sad
1.6.6 adds High Sierra support, drops everything else - This update is described as a maintenance update that adds support for High Sierra (and that’s all), but it also requires High Sierra, meaning that older versions of the OS will no longer get updates for this app. Why? Is this necessary? What critical features does High Sierra have that Pocket now uses that make it unworthwhile to allow older versions of the OS to run the app? Seems dumb.
