      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.

    1. 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..

      Instapaper has been around longer than most read-it-later services and bookmarking apps, and it is still a relevant and powerful Pocket alternative. In fact, the two apps share most features and both offer a free and premium plan. Instapaper's free plan offers saving unlimited blog posts, articles, videos, etc. and syncing them across the iOS app, Android app, and the web service. The Premium version costs $2.99 per month and lets you use full-text search, save unlimited notes, get an ad free experience, and more. If you use a Mac, then the lack of an Instapaper Mac app is a con compared to Pocket, which offers one via the Mac App Store.

    2. If privacy and open source are your priorities, then Memex is a powerful bookmarking service that could replace Pocket for you if you don’t need all its features. The free plan has powerful features that lets you save links, find them later, organize them with tags and collections and share them with the world. The paid version is €3 per month and offers syncing between mobile and desktop and backups to cloud services. Existing users of Pocket, Raindrop.io, etc. can easily import existing bookmarks and links.

    5. PaperSpan is an easy to use, free app to save web pages for reading later. Save pages from computer or phone's browser, and open them from either. Useful for managing web links those you find worth to read, but sometime later.
