Unlimited Highlighting 

Highlighting while reading has enormous benefits. It helps you engage more deeply the text, comprehend dense subjects, and easily revisit to key passages in the future. While the free version limits users to 3 highlights per article, Premium removes this limit.

Permanent Library

While you’re subscribed to Pocket Premium, the articles and webpages you save will be automatically copied into your Permanent Library. Therefore, even if content you’ve saved  changes or is deleted from the Web, you’ll still be able to access it in Pocket.

Suggested Tags

With Suggested Tags, you no longer need to type, remember, or search for tags you've recently used. You'll see your three most recently used Tags to quickly organize items in your account.
