Common Questions

I’d like to share to a service that isn’t listed. How can I do this?

When sharing to other services that have not been integrated with Pocket, just click the View Original button in the overflow menu of the list, or in Article View and copy the link in your browser. You can also open the overflow menu in the list and select Copy Link.
