    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
  • Please support Chinese TTS

    The TTS quality has been greatly improved in the past a couple of updates, but it seems that the TTS for Chinese text hasn’t been supported yet. Can you try supporting it soon?

    Was good until last update. So many problems. Row Sizes too big in “my list”, margin problems, report a problem function doesn’t work. Don’t need headphones for this app. Move that button, or make the bottom row of buttons customizable. Very frustrating. What happened to you guys? This last update was amateur hour. BTW, I’m a Top 99% badge reader.
  • Horrible Update

    Unusable. I can't select and tag multiple articles any more. App constantly crashes. Tag list doesn't scroll to currently-viewed tag (which isn't highlighted any more). Pull down to refresh is hit-or-miss at best. Very sluggish. The initial release of the new version was even missing the untagged article view option. Seriously, do some testing before releasing updates.
  • Several Steps Backwards

    Recent updates have made a mess out of what was a fantastic app. The app is less stable, and there seem to be a significant number of issues with content not syncing between devices, deleted items not really being gone and article tiles not matching up to the actual article. Very frustrating.
  • Simply incredible.

    This app was already invaluable. The new text-to-audio feature earns it another superlative: incredible. The software speech is incredibly well done and, I feel, actually enjoyable to listen to, and now I can listen to my saved articles in the car, at the gym, etc. Why this app is free...is beyond me! But I appreciate it! Thank you developers.

    I use Pocket mainly for recipes. Now however, I've noticed two problems: (1) when saving something from my browser, I'm repeatedly told to 'login' even though I'm already logged in. I have to go through this 5-7 times before it recognizes my login; (2) when reviewing a recipe, if I press the 'back' arrow the app crashes completely.
  • love the redesign, issues sending to a friend

    i was just talking to a friend about how Pocket would be so much better if they improved the text to speech reader and just two days later they incorporated a whole host of updates to make listening to articles a better experience. Great minds think alike! One bug I’ve noticed since the new update: The send to friend feature seems unable identify senders. I got an email notification with the following error whenever I try: “The share did not include any valid recipients.” Otherwise, loving the direction of the app.
  • One step forward, two steps back

    I’m a longtime user. I even have a Power Reader sticker from Pocket for being in the top 99th percentile of readers. And I might have to start looking for a replacement. Is it not possible to view archived articles by tag anymore? The new text settings aren’t as clean as before - line height is smushed. Took me awhile to realize what some of the new icons were for. The “listen” feature seems to be getting a lot of attention in this update. I have no use for that and would like to turn it off entirely. But, the article list & discovery view look cleaner now with some padding. So that’s something, I guess...
  • Reader broken now

    Please put the voice reader back the way it was. It wasn’t broken and was already everything we needed! I need to be able to select my own voices and listen to articles offline (I’m on subway most of the time). I shouldn’t have to be online for any of these functions to work!
