Pocket app stared off as “Read It Later”, a Mozilla Firefox browser extension, with an intent of being on the desktop, however in it’s new avatar it now spans Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone, OS X, Windows, Kobo eReaders and other Web Browsers. A paid subscription service called Pocket Premium was introduced in May 2014.
The application allows the user to save an article or web page for later reading, allowing them to access the content from any device with the same login. Touted as the world’s leading save-for-later service currently has more than 22 million registered users and is integrated into more than 1500 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows.
The next time you find an article, video or link you want to read or watch later, just save it to Pocket, it creates categories based on the tags you’ve used to organize your saved items and it has a search function if you are worried how you will sift through the saved content. It’ll sync across your phone, tablet, and computer so you can come back to it whenever and wherever you’d like, even when you’re offline. It also allows you to share the link of the content from within the app.
