Pocket is one of the unsung hero products of my life. I have used it every day for years and with these updates, I imagine I will do so for years to come. Thanks @nateweiner and the @pocketapps_co team! 🙌 🚀

Have it read an article to you. The new voices they added will make articles sound closer to podcasts

@andrewwarner That is in the mobile app only right? Was looking for it on the app/site.
@andrewwarner @jvdmeij yeah this is mobile only for now.
I used to LOVE Pocket. Once they started pushing premium and Firefox acquired it, I realized I hadn't used it in over a year, so I deleted my account. I just re-installed it yesterday, because I remembered how much I loved its simplicity and interface. There's still just ONE feature I wish that it had: the ability to read an article in it instantly like Mercury Reader. In fact, if Mercury had a Save to Pocket option instead of Kindle...well that would be nearly perfect.
Been a daily active user since forever. So useful. Voice was one of the key things holding some friends back from using it. So glad they launched it.
I love the new design and small improvements. Pocket has been my go-to app for saving all the things for years, and I find myself getting back to old saved content years later.
What I would love to see next are the improved search, categorization and filters, as your feed gets crowded pretty quickly.
Gotta try the improved listen experience though!
Wish it would save copies to device because it is slow and tech blogs will edit news after they are exposed to be shills
Does it tell you how many saved items you have?
Ahhh pocket - the holy grail of epic content I save and then never read
Much better audio experience. Great for the treadmill.
Great job, Pocket team! I use the app for years on a daily basis and started to get really frustrated by the inconsistent design by now. This looks and feels like 2018 and is what the product deserves. Thanks!
I'm still missing some must-have features:
1) On android I would love to have a widget with the page I've saved
2) I would like to have a Chrome plugin that replace my home (when you open a new empty tab) that display the latest page I've saved on Pocket
3) When I've already saved a page on Pocket I would like to see the Pocket button colored because right now I don't know if I've already saved it or not when I come to an article in the next days
Guys, the UI needs some work, I know having EVERYTHING be white all the time is super cool right now but cmon, be original so we don't have to be bored to death, thanks. PS. vertical div spacing needs to be reduced, again, thanks.
I'm a pro user and have been a fan of the text to speech feature to listen to saved articles in the car or on the train. The new 'podcast style' Listen UI is a nice enhancement of this feature!
I love and hate Pocket.
3 quinllion iterations and, still, one horrible way of managing tags that can squeeze the life out of every living creature — specially if all you want is to quickly remove or reorder tags.
It’s like that beautiful person you’d love to hang out with, if they didn’t do that horrible one thing that drives you insane.
Man, I love Pocket. Def my most used app -- and the only one I actively recommend to people.
