    50 alternatives to wallabag 

    wallabag has many of the features that Pocket has and is a great and totally free alternative. The reading experience is clean and free from distractions. What makes it even more attractive is the fact that it’s open source and can be self-hosted, which makes it a good solution if you value privacy. If you need hosting, wallabag offers a competitive price for only €9 per year. With migration tools for Pocket, Instapaper, and more, existing users of those services can switch quickly to wallabag. There are apps and plugins for many operating systems, RSS readers, and browsers, but their quality is not always equal. There’s an API so developers can build their own apps or get involved in the open source project.

    Wallabag might be a nice alternative for those looking to self-host their own data, but for most this will not be a realistic option, and thus, the cloud component will not be free.

    No way to use a free cloud service makes it completely useless.

    Open source, can be self hosted. Pocket sells your data to make profit.

    137 alternatives to Raindrop.io 

    Raindrop.io is a solution that is very similar to Pocket when it comes to features, ease of use, and organization. The user interface is modern, clean, and customizable with themes. Unlike Pocket, you can collaborate with your friends or coworkers to edit and read the same content saved from the web. There is a free version that has all the basic features most people need, but the Pro plan offers a lot of additional pro features like full-text search, Dropbox backup, permanent library, priority support, and a duplicate links finder tool. It has clients for most browsers, iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and a web version. Unfortunately, like Pocket and most alternatives to it, there is no Linux version.

    You can edit the titles and description. This is a feature that Pocket seems reluctant/unwilling to add, and their suggested workaround is in a word, DUMB..
