We've been playing with Poki 2 for months now as part of the beta. It's a wonderful app and one of our favorite Pocket clients for Windows Phone.
Poki 2 is an update to Poki 1 but introduces a new pricing model. The app is now free, but an in-app purchase of $1.99 moves you to Poki Premium. With Poki Premium you get a few extra features like background sync, the ability to update items when offline, ability to multi-edit items and four themes for the app.
Users on Poki 1 will get Poki Premium for free when updating the app, just make sure you already have Poki 1 installed on your Windows Phone.
There's a Windows 8.1 version of Poki coming out before the end of the year. Pricing changes a little bit when you take that app into account. Poki Premium is just $1.99 if you only want to use Poki on Windows Phone. Just want Poki Premium on Windows 8.1? That'll be $2.99, but for $3.99 you get Poki Premium on Windows Phone and Windows 8.1. A sweet deal considering the overall polish you get when using Poki.
