Pocket integration and google alerts features please Please integrate pocket and make a keywords content search like "google alert": you write keywords and you get content matching, if the content is not available at the moment you search then whenever it is available you would get it. I use google alert, is really handy, but I would to automatically listen to those articles, not getting them via email.

There is a time delay before article shows up in the playlist. No channel separation; just a "featured" tab with news from every topic. Instead of starting a track from the beginning, it should remember my progress. Hangs sometimes when deleting articles.

I'm using it a lot these days Very handy. I'm constantly adding to my podcast and enjoying the articles when I am on the road or want to rest my eyes for a while. The audio quality is fantastic. Some small UI defects I will report later. Would enjoy hooks into Evernote.

False advertising I downloaded this app to listen to PDF's but it entails you to pay a subscription of 2 $ per month, which it doesn't tell you until you try to add a PDF
