Organizing and Tagging in Pocket for iPad
After you’re finished with a saved item, tap the check mark to send it to the Archive. Archived items will still be available in Pocket, but only with a network connection. The checkmark can be found in the bottom toolbar after opening an item, or after swiping across an item in your list.
To access your archived items, tap the Main Menu, and select Archive.
Items that you particularly like can be marked as a favorite. Tap the Favorite button to add small yellow star badge at the corner to help them stand out. The Favorite button can be found after swiping across an item in your list.
To see the entire list of Favorites, choose Favorites from the Main Menu.
Tags are keywords to help describe your saved items. They are similar to folders but more flexible, since multiple tags can be added to a single item.
For example, if you save an article about productivity at work, you can tag it "productivity" and "lifehacks" to help you find it later.
Once added, tags appear beneath an item’s title and source URL.
To assign tags, tap the Tag button, which can be found by swiping across a saved item in your List; in Bulk Edit Mode; and by tapping the reader overflow menu (●●●) in the bottom toolbar in Article View.
To find any items that contain a particular tag, scroll to the top and tap the Tag Filter. Then, choose a tag to see all associated items. To filter by a different tag, tap on the Tag Filter again. To clear the filter and return to your list, tap the x button.
To maintain a tidy Tags list, you can rename, merge, and delete tags in Pocket for iPhone. To start, open the Pocket Menu, select Tags, then tap the pencil icon at the top right corner. To edit a tag, tap the pencil icon next to the tag you want to edit. If the new name is the same as an existing tag name, they will be merged together. Tap the trash can icon to delete a tag and remove it from all items.
Pocket Premium includes additional tagging features. Please click here to learn more about Suggested Tags in Pocket Premium.
Bulk Edit allows you to make changes to a group of items at once. To get started, you can either:
1. Activate by simply pressing and holding your finger on an item in your list for about 1 second.
2. Tap the overflow menu and then tap the Bulk Edit.
Next, select the items you’d like to change, and tap the action to perform: Add Tags, Archive, Favorite, or Delete.
