"Do procrastinate, do it later!"

Reviewed by / Apr 24, 2014

Pocket allows you to save webpages, tweets, videos, articles... to read/watch it later

How many times did you send links/webpages and any other resource to your e-mail (or bookmarked them) in order to read them later? I've made it that way thousands of times. For those who want to watch and read everything but are always in a rush, Pocket pops in as a revolutionary tool.

Give a break to your e-mail. Create a Pocket account and start pushing articles, videos, images, gifs... anything worth to be saved or that requires more time to be watched/read than what you have right now. The app automatically syncs the content (over WiFi or data, set at your whim) in order to make it accessible offline. You can retake them whenever you feel like from your smartphone, tablet, browser or desktop. A cross-platform service with browser extension: mark interesting articles you find at the office and catch up with them on your downtime.

'Pocketed' content can be tag, fav and archived. There's also an 'Inbox' to send and receive content to/from friends. Pocket is fully customizable: font size, font-type, light/dark theme

Pocket stands out due to a powerful app concept and well-designed intuitive interface. It has integration with hundreds of apps which enriches the user experience and makes it one of the best bookmarking services on the market.

    This app contains a setting that allows you to save your article cache to the SD card to save space on your main partition. This is meant to make up for the fact that the app itself cannot be moved to the SD card without impairing normal usage. Unfortunately checking off the "save offline cache to SD card" option does not actually work. I'm using an Nvidia Shield Tablet running Android 5.0 and whe

    Its a great app for saving articles to read later. But the material design update is not polished. The drawer and the setting menu have to be fixed.
