I really enjoy this application. I have used is fairly extensively on my DROID X. However, my company is switching to iPhone and I currently have an iPad.
Is there a version of this app that will work on these devices. I will be saddened if there is not.
That means I will have to find a comparable product and relearn as well as re-enter all of my data.
Thank you for a great app.
I'm rather new to the use of drop box and Pocket. I set up an account with Drop Box, and tried to load Pocket onto my laptop. When it asked me to load my existing pocket from the file system, I couldn't get anything to work. I tried to use the newly set up Drop Box file, but that didn't work. What am I doing wrong??
For the desktop version, could you make the title font small or alternatively have adjustable column widths since I cannot see the "Edit" and "Delete" buttons. It seems you have designed the window for a wide screen monitor.
pocket.docxI am trying to add entries using the desktop version and then sync to phone. However, pocket desktop does not allow me to save any entries whatsoever. It shows an error"unable to save entry". Can anyone shed some light on this? I uploaded a screenshot but not sure if it works or not. Thanks for your time in advance...
I have down loaded the desk top version. i also have a active pocket that i use in my Samsung Galaxy tablet. The desk top does not let me log in to my pocket. It asks me to to put a pocket folder name. How can I get round it. Thanks Padma
I have installed Pocket on the HTC and have it working fine with dropbox for some time. Today i installed the PC version and have dropbox also on my PC. The problem is that when I start up Pocket on the desktop it keeps giving the following error:
'Unable to save Pocket properties: check permissions.
Just found out about 'pocket'
Really like it (especially as it's free') AND it also has a 'sort of' desktop App as well
EXCEPT for the fact that the Android App export as 'pocket.db' and 'pocket.txt' while the Desktop wants 'wallet.db' and 'hash.txt' (PLEASE FIX THIS)
I don't own a Dropbox & have no plan to get one either - but do prefer the 'offline' approach... shame about the difference in filenames...
Anyway - I'm not a programmer, but been experimenting with DOS BAT files & came up with this for us window users
Created a BAT file with this in it, placed it in the same folder as I've placed the pocket_1.5.jar file, & now when I connect up my Android phone up as a 'removable drive' & run this BAT file
(When connected it shows up as Drive 'F:' - if it shows up as something different on your PC - change the drive letter as appropriate).
This then copies over the files & renames them to 'wallet.db' and 'hash.txt' then start up the JAR version of Pocket's desktop program.
> First time you run it you may be asked is it a file or directory - choose 'F' for file
> Further times you run it, as long as you haven't deleted the original copy, you will be asked if you want to overwrite the file - choose 'Y' [yes] or 'A' [all]
Running this BAT file will copy 'wallet.db' and 'Hash.txt' back to the phone (remember to change the drive letter if it's wrong) & rename them back to 'pocket.db' and 'pocket.txt'
[You'll be asked if you want to overwrite the existing files though]
Reset 'pocket' & 'import' the db file back will load in the new database
NOTE: I have said I'm not a programmer - this works for me BUT it contains NO checking & I cannot be responsible for any loss of data etc
I'm sure there are other people who can make a better job of this
Anyway - I hope that this helps make it a little easier to 'offline sync' pocket files
I really like this application - super easy to setup and use with DropBox.
I have a couple of feature requests for the Windows app:
1) Ability to set logoff time (or disable completely). When I'm at my desktop, I don't want Pocket to log off automatically.
2) Save last opened window location and size when closing, so it re-opens where it last was. Pocket always opens in the top-left corner of the screen, but I'm using Google widgets on the left of my screen, and Pocket shows up 'under' the widgets. Also the initial window size is quite wide, probably because the title font is so large - maybe the title size could be reduced, so the Edit & Close buttons aren't so far to the right?
Excellent release! I really enjoy having this on my desktop now! I love the theme of these tools. Keep up the good work.
My only request is to look into Google Drive as an alternate for your customers to choose. I signed up for dropbox for this app alone but I use Google Drive for docs all the time. I would rather only having one installed on my PC. Thanks for the consideration.
In software is bug, the synchronisation from Android to DropBox is functioning only when you set it from the start. When you set synchronisation later after creating database, it won´t synchronise even if it´s saying it! What a huge bug. Tim Clark didn´t test this, seems he thinks he´s so good it´s not needed :-). Sorry Tim, but transfer of files should be always tested! Probably you are creating folder in dropbox only in beginning and later you do not test it or similar stupid mistake.
Rather than waiting to fix his mistake, save the hash.txt and wallet.db to Dropbox/SecureWallet and make reset in android to set all again.
To Clark!: Why user can not create database in Windows? Win version only checks DropBox. Every normal guy starts to fill the database in Windows and then transfer data to Android via DropBox.
Clark, are you sure about saving setting in Windows version to c:/users/"user"/.pocket, you are not user of Windows much, right? The most important folder and now everyone must see the setting of Pocket. Correct path for setting is c:/users/"user"/AppData/Roaming/Pocket, the dot in folder name you can keep for Android :-).
I´ve paid you, so stick in chair at the computer and fix all! :-)
