  • (2023-07-03) Conor O: I really like this, even though it very rarely if ever gives a very detailed up to the minute unread article count, the only issue that really bugs me is...why are there so many articles without reading time tags? It's just very random, I thought it might've been with a particular site, or maybe articles are too short, but its very random, some sites sometimes dont have read time tags, somtimes they do, sometimes the articles are long, sometimes they're short, just random patches where a bunch of read time tags under the thumbnail preview are just nonexistent, and a bunch where they;re there. Sometimes once you open the article it will have the read time at the top, but I'm talking more about the previews under the thumbnails, thats how i usually decide which ones to read
  • (2022-07-07) Nathaniel Van De Kamp: I really like this extension, it's a lot more customizable than official one , but there's one thing that prevents me from using it. The option to add time tags is enabled by default and it just overshadows all the good parts about it. Even after disabling it and clicking "remove all time tags" nothing happens. Every time I install it on new computer (and I use a lot of them) I have to go through the torment of deleting hundred tags manually on my mobile phone and it takes ages
  • (2019-10-24) Veroni Vajdova (Weroni): No matter what, it won't connect with my pocket, keeps showing "one moment please"
  • (2019-09-01) Андрей Мягков: Good day is a great expansion. I can not sort the article by time to change the color of the page and do not display the total timing of all articles.
  • (2019-04-14) Anthony Plummer: A really nice extension with the kind of sensible customization that I like. Everything can be turned on or off independently and the options it adds are things with good arguments either way (i.e. clicking the button can open Pocket or Add to Pocket or give a random article--or a menu to choose). The one thing that bothers me to no end is that the unread counter doesn't disappear when it's zero. That's an aesthetic oversight that I'm not sure I can take for much longer and it's why I gave it four stars instead of five.
  • (2019-02-07) The developer Adi is super great - I had an issue with the article count number being updated and within 12 hours of reporting the bug it was fixed and working good as new. I really like all the features and the extension in general, but knowing that any bugs will be addressed immediately is what makes me really impressed :)
  • (2019-01-29) Martin Kučerák: good extension, but article counter is not working and reading speed is not showing in pocket list...
  • (2018-12-07) giuseppeg73: Fa schifo, non funziona.
  • (2018-10-02) Игорь Шпирка: Good day is a great expansion. I can not sort the article by time to change the color of the page and do not display the total timing of all articles.
  • (2018-02-18) Henrik Akselsen: Extremely well made. Thanks a lot
  • (2017-11-26) Rick Sheahan: Seems useful, although I don't like how it has reading times replacing the suggest tags....
  • (2017-11-16) Lena Fiedler: this really helped me a lot - knowing how long an article takes/took to read - a count in the browser to see how many articles I have in pocket
  • (2017-06-20) Eduardo Fernandes: Great!
  • (2017-03-25) Clément Hervy: Great extension, works well with my "reading flow". I have a problem though, it keeps logging out every few weeks. It happens on every computer I use regularly.
  • (2016-11-14) Pascal Forget: Perfect complement to Pocket. And the Estimated reading time tag appears in the mobile version of Pocket too, super useful to find shorter (or longer) articles to read on the go.
  • (2016-08-09) Rafa Espillaque: Quite useful but ¿why I can't see my tags? I need to filter the archive by tag
  • (2016-06-22) Sriniwas Sriram: Reading time is an awesome feature that helps me prioritize reading. Great extension to go with mobile app.
  • (2016-05-30) Danny Seago: Haven't given many reviews, but after having a bit of trouble connecting it to pocket, it looks great! Worth the effort to get it going. My problem connecting, BTW, was that it would not connect directly by clicking "Log In With..." I had to manually enter my email and password. Worked with no problem then. So - first world problems, I guess ;-)
  • (2016-04-23) Monkey On A Cloud: Excellent, thanks, hopefully this will help us tackle our reading list :-)
  • (2016-03-15) Austin Nowlin: Excellent extension.
  • (2016-01-19) Angus Lee: Random articles from my list! thank you^^
  • (2015-12-18) I can't login, while I had 2 different extension ON. Why? Which Adblock option should I fix?
  • (2015-11-25) Serhii Honcharov: best thing i ever use for pocket.!
  • (2015-09-18) Paul Morgan: THANK YOU! I've wanted randomisation in Pocket since day 1, the estimated reading times are a nice touch too.
  • (2015-09-17) Ada B.: cool! especially I like random article. very nice extension
  • (2015-08-23) Vincent Corlay: This extension provides what Pocket lacks : very useful !
  • (2015-07-06) Yura Moshnin: Do not understand russian articles
  • (2015-06-05) Zach Shearer: This is a great way to prioritize articles or to fit an article in before a meeting.

  • (2017-03-22, v:2016.1116.1.16 Release) Samy Amirou: Tags for read duration
    Hello, May I suggest a feedback on the automation of tags based on duration of the article / vidéo ? I think it is a great feature, but I think it will be better if you use less tags, because it is not very simple to search articles by duration due to too many choices. Ex : by using ranges like : "< 2min" "< 5 min", or "short", "long", "very long" ...
  • (2017-03-14, v:2016.1116.1.16 Release) n ascentt: Option to change toolbar icon
    Love this addon, but still use Pocket Count because it uses the actual Pocket shield icon with the number overlay, I prefer the functionality of AcceleReader but really wish there was at least an option to use the Pocket Shield as the toolbar icon as it's easier to recognise.
  • (2017-01-25, v:2016.1116.1.16 Release) Janelle Aurisch: log in everytime
    Hi. Why do I need to log in every time I open Chrome now??? Why can't my log in details be remembered?
  • (2016-11-18, v:2016.1116.1.16 Release) Christian Sino: It keeps asking me to login
    After this version (2016.1116.1.16) I need to login to the extension very often. Every time I open the browser? I am not sure..
  • (2016-11-01, v:2016.1031.1.8 Release) Ode: Hiding Tags from "My List"
    Also, not certain if its possible, but it would be awesome if we could hide certain tags from Pocket's homepage ("My List") :)
  • (2016-11-01, v:2016.1031.1.8 Release) Ode: Exclude Tags From "Surprise Me"
    Could we possibly get an option to exclude certain tags from "surprise me"?

  • (2016-05-25, v: Release) Eleanor Emmott: "reading time count" and filters missing
    Like a few other users, I am missing the reading time count and filters. The keyboard "." shortcut isn't working either.
  • (2016-05-24, v: Release) Reading time does not update
    Total time is always the same after it reached a plateau of 7046 minutes (!) and 1000 articles. Now I have "only" 700 unread ones but the total time is always the same
  • (2016-04-23, v: Release) Monkey On A Cloud: No total-time count
    I can’t see the main page up-right “reading time count” I can see in the screenshots. So I can’t access the filters, neither. Any idea?
