Pocket is an app designed to keep webpages in a safe place, when you don’t have time to browse. This allows you to come back and read them later.
This app is great for DIY lovers! If you see a fun project you want to try on someone else’s blog or on any website, you can save it for later on your Pocket. When the next rainy day rolls around, you can pull out your Pocket and look for a fun new craft to try.
Let’s face it: we can’t remember everything we see on the Internet, but Pocket can. It’s a safe place to store all the things you find interesting, but don’t quite have time to commit to memory. I like to think of Pocket as a “Bookmarks” bar on-the-go. It keeps my Bookmarks bar in my web browser clutter-free and lets me access my saved pages anywhere, not just on my computer.
Pocket can sync to multiple devices. Once you save something to Pocket, you can read it anywhere. The app is available for the iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, eBook Reader and other mobile devices, so you can read your saved webpages on-the-go on your phone or tablet. You can also download the Pocket app for Mac. If you’re a PC owner, not to worry – you can use Pocket‘s web-based application to view your saved links.
You don’t need Internet to use Pocket. Once you’ve saved your articles, you can access them anywhere – even in airplane mode. This makes it a great app to pass the time while you’re standing in line or waiting for an appointment.
Pocket isn’t just a folder where you throw in a bunch of URL’s. It’s organized. You can categorize your saved pages with tags, so finding the article you’re looking for in Pocket is effortless. If you’re planning a party, you can start a “Part Ideas” category in Pocket and compile party ideas you find on the Internet in one safe place.
One of Pocket‘s best features is the ability to share your saved pages with friends. You can share through email, along with social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Once you finish reading your saved page, you can share how much you love it with your friends. With Pocket, there’s never a missed opportunity to share ideas.
The BEST thing about Pocket is that it’s FREE! As a college student, I’m always looking for ways to save time and money. For me, Pocket is one of the answers. It’s an efficient way to give my brain a little break from remembering sites I want to visit on top of learning the curriculum in my classes. So why not try it? You have nothing to lose!
“NY Times, Business Week, and TechCrunch call it ‘DVR for the web.'”
“A Top 10 App used my 6 million people worldwide.”
Pocket is also easy on the eyes. I like to look at it as my own little version of Pinterest. I can sort through DIY projects I want to try in an organized and easy to use display.
