Owl Reader is the most reliable, customizable, and simplest Pocket app with myTube and Surfy integration (my personal favorites). While I read many articles using Owl Reader, I mainly use it to organize (tag, favorite, delete, etc) articles on-the-go or to quickly find ones when I need a reference or link. Reading view is great. I've been using Owl Reader since 2014 and it remains one of my frequently used and must-have apps. Please update so I can continue using it. This is still the only Pocket client that's actually useful. Thank you.

Best pocket app hands down

Excellent! Even ways better than the original Pocket app with unique features :) Good job! I'm voting for a UWP version with UI/UX respecting the design language of Windows 10.

Best Pocket app on WP. Loads of customization options and features, easy to use, and responsive developer. As another reviewer mentioned in comparison with other Pocket client apps, Owl Reader just always works. Well worth the $2.

Owl Reader has a beautiful UI without being overwhelming. I can delete an article from within or I can use Select in the list view to delete multiple articles. Tags show along with article titles in list view. After I open an article it remains in list view unless I choose to move it. I'm using Latermark for Pocket to save articles. It's fast and lets me add tags before it saves. I tried the Owl Reader plugin which was fine but didn't give me chance to add tags before saving. I tried at least 4 other Pocket reader apps and easily chose Owl Reader. I like it so much I bought it.

Really the best out there. Pictures and descriptions are easy to navigate. While all app features are free, please support the developers so this app can continue to get updates.

Best pocket client, I love it. I don't own a credit card. So having a client with all the features supported out of the box is what makes this app great. The only thing I don't like is that universal sharing has to be through an auxiliary app. Please roll them into a single app.
