Editors' Review

+

Pocket is a great way to save the cool and interesting stuff you find, so you can view, read, or play it later with Pocket's Android app or on the Web. Pocket's free Android app lets you save and share stuff directly from the apps you're already using by tapping the Pocket icon.

Pros

Easy to use: Right away, we were able to browse to an article, tapped Share, selected Add to Pocket, and added Tags or sent stuff via email.

Multiple platforms: Pocket's multiplatform compatibility lets you save and view stuff on Android, Windows, and iOS devices. You can even save stuff via email.

Options: Link or unlink Google+, dark theme, Wi-Fi-only, background or startup sync, manage site log-in data, SD card cache, and LED Flash notifications, to name a few. Need another feature? Request it: Many are implemented.

Prevent data usage: Saving stuff to read later on might save on data charges, too, especially if you enable Pocket's Wi-Fi-only option.

Cons

Finding articles: We'd like a quicker way to recall recently added articles from inside our browser for tagging or sharing.

No full-text search: Pocket Premium's Full-Text Search tool would help attract (and retain) more Pocket users if it came with the free app.

Bottom Line

Pocket is a useful, easy-to-use tool that anyone can use. We're definitely glad to see Pocket in our Android.

What's new in version 4.0
  • Stunning New Design: Our new visual list includes thumbnail images for your saved content, so it's easier to see what you've saved.
  • Beautiful Viewing Experience: We've created a lighter, cleaner and (in our humble opinion) more beautiful interface and full-screen reader view. It's the best way to read articles or watch videos from your phone, tablet or browser.
  • Easy Access to Video and Images: Pocket isn't just the best way to save something to read, but it's also the best way to save videos and images. (As we mentioned in a recent blog post, YouTube is now our most-saved site.) The new Content Filter makes it easier to see all your saved videos and images in one place.
  • Favorites: Want to remember the best stuff you saved? Mark them as a Favorite to make them simple to find and share.
  • Search and Tagging: With the new bulk edit feature and powerful search, it's never been easier organize and find your content. Filter by tag, and search for keywords, publications and titles.
