8.4Excellent
Interesting functionality, nice interface, modern design
Crashes, glitches, is lagging, high price
Pocket for Android helps you collect and organize all the articles and web pages you’d like to read and keeps them in one common, easy to access place.
Pocket aims to make web reading easier and convenient. We've all run across articles we’d like to read or web pages we’d like to check out but don’t necessarily have the time to enjoy them properly right now. We have every intention of getting back to these articles or stories friends have shared, but often forget all about them or simply can’t find them again, once we have a moment to spare. Pocket takes all those areas of interest and gathers them in once place where you can browse and peruse at your own leisure.
Pocket requires you to create an account or link with Google+ so that it can generate and save your reading lists. The articles are synced directly with the app, so there’s no need to waste any time downloading or searching for articles a second time. Everything is laid out in visually appealing tiles or lists, directly on your gizmo. So you can read any of your saved articles offline without a data connection.
To send articles to the app, just browse the internet as normal, and when you find something you’d like to save, hit the “share” button in whatever app or browser you are using. A popup window will appear with all your standard sharing options, and amongst them, you’ll see the Pocket icon. Just click on that icon to save whatever you were looking at, and automatically sync the item with your Pocket app. Saved items are available across platforms and devices, near instantaneously. So your growing list of articles, websites and images will be viewable on PC, tablets, phones, etc.
The interface is very clean and inviting. And there’s even a night mode that displays quite nicely. The app itself ran well, but I did experience some hangs and outright crashes when syncing some of my articles. The app can even read to you in an array of languages and speech styles.
Pocket is an excellent idea. I love the ease of implementation and seamless integration with your favorite apps and browsers. However, I think the annual and monthly fee options are staggeringly high for the pro versions.
