    I saved something on the pocket app once. and i would reference the page weekly. however, when the actual live webpage updated (I wanted to keep looking at the one i saved in pocket app) however, the one i saved in pocket app, updated along with the live website !!!!! this is ridiculous, so if you cannot use pocket to SAVE webpages for offline reading later, then what good is it?

  • Now if they could just give me a feature to help me get through the backlog of content I have stored up in there…

  • Social network is a important part nowaday

    Would be cool if you could use NFC to share stuff you’ve saved in Pocket. If this is already possible then just ignore this.

    • Interesting idea. I dont think its implemented yet
