Owl Reader is a feature-rich client and offline reader for Pocket (Read It Later). It allows you to connect to your Pocket account, browse the list of articles you have stored there, and read the articles in a comfortable mobile view directly on your phone. It also allows management of stored articles - adding new links, deleting old ones, tagging articles or marking them as read or favorite.

Owl Reader downloads articles with images for offline reading. It also allows you to browse and edit your Pocket article list even when you are currently offline. This includes operations like archiving, favoriting, deleting, tagging, or even adding new links to the list. All changes made offline are uploaded upon next online synchronization. This makes Own Reader perfect for reading articles from the web while travelling by underground, airplane, or through areas with poor signal.

Note that you need to have a (free) Pocket account in order to use the application. You can get one here: http://getpocket.com/signup

Features:

- Multiple themes (dark, light, sepia, teal, custom)
- Handles thousands of articles in the list
- Clean mobile view with fully customizable font and colors
- Two color schemes with easy switching
- Position within an article is remembered
- Scrollbar for quick navigation throughout the article
- Automatic downloading of articles (including images)
- Three alternative services for mobile article parsing
- Support for YouTube videos (including thumbnails), videos can be opened in IE, Metrotube, myTube, or YouTube apps (WP8 only)
- External links can be opened in IE, UC Browser, Surfy, Maxthon, or Nokia Xpress (WP8 only)
- Rich configuration options

Includes a bookmark that allows saving the current page from Internet Explorer even on WP 7.5 devices.

    Very Good best out there

    Great app! Very responsive and helpful developers. Lots of customizations. It's well worth the price.

    Great reader! Beautiful. Use it constantly.

    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.

    Excellent!
  • by Theodore E. 9/30/2014
    I have paid the very small price they ask for an app that significantly contributes to my life, much less my productivity. This app is for anyone who reads.PERIOD. Deserves 7 or 8 stars - especially because you can set tags right on the phone, not just add articles. This is huge

    It would be nice to have a delete option when I long press a bookmark.

    A great pocket client. Highly functional and customisable. Though, It could use a better UI. My preferred pocket client.
