Will Pocket get a Folders feature? It would make it a lot easier for people who have a lot of to-be-read-later links on their accounts.
If you look at the tagging feature more closely, you'll see that it gives you all the benefits of folders but with the flexibility of multi-topic indexing. Bulk edit allows you to tag articles from a list of tags you've already set up or to create a new one. You can then search for articles by tag (as if looking in a folder) or look through ALL articles on file. The directions in the help menu are very clear.
We currently have the ability to tag in Pocket, but are not planning on adding folders. Here is some more information on how to use the tagging feature within the web app: http://help.getpocket.com/customer/portal/articles/332535-using-tags-in-the-pocket-web-app
Hope that’s helpful!
