Pocket gives you a place to keep all of those articles, videos, and other items that you find and want to read or refer back to later on. It integrates with many other apps to make saving as convenient as possible, and its own interface is built for convenient browsing as well.

Pros

Saving options: To save an article or video from any website or other app, you can just select Pocket from the list of sharing options. And if you're using an app that doesn't support this feature, you can just email the page or link to the app using the address provided during setup. You can also configure the app to only download material when you're connected to Wi-Fi in order to conserve data and so you don't have to worry about saving to it when you're out of the house.

Offline viewing: All of the content you save to Pocket is downloaded to the app, so you can view it even when you're not connected to the Internet. That means you can read all kinds of content and even enjoy videos, no matter where you are or what you're doing.

Cons

No folders: There isn't a great organizational system in place for helping you keep track of the content you've added to the app. You can add tags to make items slightly easier to search for, but there is no way to create different folders for different types of content or different topics.

Partial pages: Occasionally the app failed to download entire articles and instead only saved partial pages. There is also no link back to the original article in the items you save, so you can't go directly back and try to save it or download it again.

Bottom Line

Pocket is a great app to have in your arsenal, especially if you often email items to yourself to save for later or wish you could remember what you were going to go back and look at. The fact that it's integrated into so many apps, as well as the Safari browser, make saving everything you want even easier. And the app is totally free to download and use. There is a Premium upgrade available as an in-app purchase for $4.99 per month or $44.99 per year. That provides you with permanent copies of the items you've saved, even if they're no longer available online, as well as a more powerful Search feature and Suggested Tags for each entry.
