Here’s the Deal
Slant is powered by a community that helps you make informed decisions. Tell us what you’re passionate about to get your personalized feed and help others.
Rather than give you full articles, the app creates "Atoms". It's a short summary of the news event, generated from a variety of different sources. It provides infographs, images, videos and more to help you quickly understand the news event. This means you are able to read through all of the news stories in minutes. See More
In February 2019 Inoreader announced that the "Professional" plan will be capped (big change from unlimited filters to just 30!): Based on our observations, the new premium feature limits on the “Pro” plan are as follows: 10 Rules - *** Increased to 30 Rules after Inoreader evaluated feedback from their users. 30 Active Searches 100 Boosted Feeds 30 Social media feeds per service (Facebook, Twitter, VKontakte). These limitations will be applied to your account at the start of your next subscription period. All features that you use above the new limits will be deactivated, and only those that were created earliest chronologically will remain (For e.g. your earliest 10 Rules created). See More
This means that Pocket is (currently) a total lock-in. This is very sad, unfortunate and creates a no go decision for any seasoned user. Too many bookmarking and tagging companies have stopped or have gone bankrupt these last years (e.g. Kippt, Spingpad, Delicious (to some extent), etc...). So, if you are going to invest a lot of your personal time and energy in curating your Internet findings (i.e. your bookmarks and tags), it is essential that a total, fair and open export (including all tags) functionality is provided. Personally tested the export "feature" and the resulting .html file that Pocket generates currently included only the URLs themselves, i.e. no save dates nor any of your personally curated tags, nor any other useful meta-data. This is deplorable, because otherwise, Pocket is a very polished and well-functioning piece of multi-platform and multi-device software/app/web service, with a very easy and well-designed and implemented user interface... Please fix this, Pocket ! These days of open and inter-operable web services, users are only attracted by valuable functionality, clean UX design and no lockins. See More
It stores the whole database in a proprietary file package, that you cannot easily access from another app or from the Finder. Considering you might be classifying a huge quantity of files there, it is quite problematic if you want to interact with this data from other applications. See More
