Version 1.5.2
Review by Dutchess23

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!

Review by Martin Prince

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.

Review by Varun06

A must have application for this age - Ok, let me be honest, I can’t imagine my day-to-day life without this application. I use this applicaiton on my Mac, iPhone, andorid and browser, so you can see that I am pretty deep in Pocket. My whole reading workflow depends on Pocket, where I pocket a lot of articles on my interest from different sources. If I think I am going to need the article later, I simply archive it. I have Pocket integrated with many applications such as Evernote etc. and use them extensively. Thanks a lot Pocket team for creating this Application

Fixed my two problems - I asked the Pocket Team that the article view text seemed a bit light and they said they’d consider changing it. They did. I was also having issues with Evernote a few minutes ago, and now the update fixed that. Thanks guys!

Review by Relentless1240

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.

Review by Lost in GA

essential app for day to day - This is an excellent tool for ‘grabbing’ anything of interest that you may see through your day. Via copy and paste, straight from web browser, email, however you want to capture an article, image, video, URL… it’s incredibly easy. If you follow a GTD process, this can be your primary inbox for sorting later. I use Evernote for sit down organization, but pocket for my instant grab. Works well on all platforms, easily the best.

Review by amocko

Pocket, Please Give this App Some Love - Pocket’s one of my most used services, which is why it’s so disappointing to see that this app hasn’t been updated since 2014. The app has to be installed in order to have it appear in the Share menu, but that’s the only use for it these days. None of the new features (e.g Recommended Articles) they’ve added have been brought to the Mac app, meaning the only way you can actually take advantage of using the new features is to use the web-interface.
