Unhappy Pocket / Read it Later App is not longer available for the nook

Hey everybody,

i know there alot of nook users that use Read it Later (Now called "Pocket").

Since they changed to the new name it cant be installed on your nook from the android market.
i think they discontinued the android 2.1 support.

I have opened a ticket at their support system to get it back on the nook

If you want this too or just want to help me to get it back,
please leave a reply on the ticket

Thank You!

Could you pull the necessary files from a Nook that has ReadItLater currently installed?

Failing that, I would email 'Pocket' support and ask for the application. You might get it. It was available publically only hours ago, how strict could they be?

Yes it now requires 2.2.

Although it never worked properly on my nook anyway. Had some serious scrolling problems. When scrolling down by swiping the screen it would often move in the wrong direction. I had the same problem with the IHT app by the way.

Have a look at the Readability thread in this forum. Maybe that is for you. Its what I am doint at the moment.

Default Grr. Old app no longer syncs

Wasn't going to complain too much not to get the "pocket" rebrand since readitlater was still working fine... but now it isn't. Can't download any of my articles (though it can see they are there). They must have changed the system to no longer be compatible with the old version.

New ticket here (url broken to see if I'm allowed to post it, I'm a bit noob round here)
support.readitlaterlist.com/discussions/problems/
3895-readitlater-on-android-21-no-longer-syncs
But I'm not hopeful anything will be done.

*sigh*

Okay, this "readability" thing then....

You can use Instapaper with Instafetch app. It has eink friendly UI and made especially for nook :)

Free registration at instapaper.com, free app. from google market "Read later for Instapaper" (author Capone) plus official bookmarklet from instapaper.com for browser which adds current page to the reading list. I almost happy with this solution.

Cons: no images, font is horrible and i see no way to change it, you need to refresh the list manually to download new articles, don't use full screen mode because it will hide options button at the top of your nook. Cheers

Capone's "Read Later for Instapaper" has been removed from the Google Play store. Presumably because it no longer syncs (the spinner spins, but makes no progress) and if you clear data and try to set it up again, the (correct) username and password aren't accepted. Presumably Instapaper have blocked it from logging into an account that doesn't have a $1/month subscription attached (the API is only open to third-party apps if the account does so). The official paid Instapaper app doesn't require the subscription, but requires Android 2.3.3.

Has anyone got a copy of an older version of the official Instapaper app that still runs on Android 2.1?

EDIT: I've found Laters which works on Android 2.1 on the Nook, so I think I'll switch back to Pocket.

I read today that Pocket is now available for the Kobo reader. May be is it possible to use the kobo version on our NST?
