Teacher 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.
