Editors’ Choice

Pocket gathers articles, videos, and other content from pretty much anywhere—New York Times articles, a goofy list (OK, several goofy lists) from BuzzFeed, and that YouTube video from your cousin—and saves it for later, presenting it in a superclean, customizable layout so you can get through your list without distraction.

I normally don’t write app reviews, but this had to be my exception. This app is beautifully crafted, efficient, and altogether an absolutely wonderful concept. I used to have 200+ tabs open of articles I wanted to read but never had time, but now I can keep my safari tabs clear without losing any interesting things I wanted to read. I feel like this app was marketed directly to and for me, and it’s marvelous.

My only criticism is not even one of the app itself; rather the ease of integration with Apple’s OS. When on Safari, when I click the share button, there are rows of different ways to share the article—the message bubbles of people I usually talk to, then the app icons of certain apps like AirDrop and Messages, then the specialized commands like copy and, in this case, save to Pocket. I wish that Pocket could be an app icon in line with AirDrop, Messages, Mail, Twitter, etc. rather than just being a command, as the commands are right at the bottom of the share screen so it can be a little difficult to click sometimes. Otherwise, I have absolutely no complaints.

Simply a wonderful app. I absolutely recommend it.

Wow, this review made our day. Thank you so much for sharing this! Regarding the share option, Pocket has a share button that can be enabled right below the contacts, and another option called "actions" appears in a column below that. Let us know at support+review@getpocket.com if we can help you enable the app icon in the second row!

Fix the email address problem; new issues

I use Pocket regularly, but can’t believe they’ve still been unable to fix something that’s been now broken for years. Before, if you wanted to share an article w a small grp of folks, let’s call them regulars, you’d just highlight a box/circle, click send and they’d get it. This functionality was removed more than 3 years ago. Why? I don’t know. When I contacted you guys you said you were working on it. From the evidence, you weren’t and you aren’t. Pocket is by your omission, much less useful and I share far fewer links than I did. I don’t like retyping addresses of regulars, so I rarely do. If this is your intention, you’ve succeeded. It’s still pretty good for saving most articles/links of interest, but clearly some sites seem to be designed/built to not be viewed enjoyed by Pocket users later. That’s their and our loss.

Beginning recently (Oct 2019) Pocket’s gotten significantly worse. Now I can even the above, irritating technique. Now I have to open an email app to share. Great, yet another extra step. How is it your new, “improved” (sarcasm mine) versions get worse. I’ll continue to use Pocket, but I won’t recommend it.

Since 2021 it’s become still less user friendly. I still use it, but, oh well.

Hi, Notnalias! Thanks for sharing your review of Pocket. I’m so sorry to hear that Send to Friend is still not working very well for you. It’s certainly not the experience that we want you to have.

We’re still tracking the issue where addresses for non-Pocket users aren’t saved in your recent friends list. This makes it difficult to share to these friends since you can’t simply tap their names and send again. We’ll be sure to give our team a nudge about this issue so we can hopefully make this fix a higher priority.

If you have anything else you’d like to share or wish to chat further, our inbox is always open at support+review@getpocket.com. Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience in Pocket!
