About Pocket

Pocket is an article reader app which lets you save articles to read later, even offline and provides a distraction-free reading experience. Pocket app is available for free to download on Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Kobo eReaders, Kindle Fire, and even Web Browsers.

Pocket Review

Pocket is one of the most useful and feature-rich Read It Later apps. In fact, at the time of its launch, it was called ‘Read It Later’. Pocket helps you save interesting contents that you come across on the internet. However, since at that time you may not be able to read those contents or you may be busy with some other tasks or assignment.

So you can save the content on Pocket and read it later when you have the time or it is convenient for you to read. Not just articles or documents, but pockets will also save images, videos, and links. It archives everything that you have saved so that you can refer to them later at your convenience.

While you could use Evernote to store all the articles you've been meaning to go back and read, the reading experience from Pocket sets it apart. Whether you're collecting and reading productivity tips or just grabbing the latest posts on your favorite blogs, Pocket will help you do it.

One of the best ways you can use Pocket to improve productivity on your iPhone is to throw articles into it---either via the app or on your computer---and get in the habit of reading when you have a few minutes to spare. Even when using Zite, Flipboard or another iPhone reading app, we can generally save any good articles that we want to rediscover to Pocket. What’s best about this app is that it offers a standalone app for every platform and every device. With Google Chrome and Firefox, you can sync your account across machines by logging into the browser on all the machines and mobile apps you use.

According to Pocket’s website, they have 10 million registered users, which is a huge number. From a blogger’s point of view, we should tap into that to get more returning visits for our articles!

How the Pocket app works

All you need to do is open the app and tap the first article. Then start reading. You'll learn more, be more inspired, and have more fuel for productivity from just a few seconds here and there. As an offline reading app Pocket offers bookmarklets, and integrates with most of the reading apps to save any webpage for offline reading.
