Pocket for Mac is a clever little app that creates a central location for storing all those links and Web pages you want to read at a later time.

We installed Pocket for Mac via the App Store, and on startup were greeted by a quick tutorial that explained the basics. We set up our account in a minute, and soon were sharing items from the Web. We tried the default method of sharing, which is e-mailing a link from the e-mail address we registered with the app. Soon the link and its contents appeared in both instances of Pocket for Mac we installed--one on our computer and one on our iPhone. There are options to add plug-ins for browsers, so sharing is a small matter of clicking the Pocket button. This program also boasts over 300 apps with integrated support, so sharing items with yourself is consistent from device to device. We tested out its Twitter integration, which worked well. This application doesn't just save the links, it downloads the content within the app, making it possible to read even when you're offline.

Pocket for Mac works well and will appeal to any smartphone user who wants an easy way to flag Web pages of interest and read them at his or her convenience.
