(UX Case Study) Are you a current or ex-user of Pocket?

October 31, 2017 at 5:29am

Hi everyone, Are you a current or ex-user of Pocket (getpocket.com)? Iโ€™m currently working on a UX Case Study on how Pocket could be improved and how the Save for Later problem can be solved in general. Iโ€™m looking for participants for the online user interviews that I will be doing. Since I know that everyone is busy and values their time, I'm open to bartering for your time. Reply if you are interested in participating. I will message you with the details. Thanks. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@dalsinan Yeah, I'm still looking for people. I sent you a DM.

For reference, the last day that I will be interviewing people will be December 16th. So, in the meantime, the more the merrier.

I'm using Pocket but mainly as an article graveyard because it works better than cluttering up my bookmarks. I sometimes go back to Pocket when I _really want to read something right now_ but that's rare and it usually means I'll delete a lot of articles because they're no longer relevant to me. I consider that a feature: it eliminates FOMO without having to actually read everything that sounds interesting.

Using Pocket mostly as a repository of articles I'll eventually get around to reading during long flights. Sometimes I find myself saving too much stuff there that I just end up deleting most of them because they're no longer interesting for me

Since there's going to be an influx of new people, I'm currently working on a survey. Let me know which version you would prefer, i.e. a remote user interview or a survey. Thanks!

Used for a while, but it's long time ago. Now I am just using Instapaper. It's fits most my needs.

I used pocket for about a week, but then quit mostly due to UX. I'd be happy to offer some feedback

I use it all the time - most valuable thing: text to speech; biggest pain: no TTS in my mother tongue (croatian) or at least any kind of separation of saved content by languages.
