Pocket: Save Articles and Videos to View Later


Pocket has been named one of the best apps for iPhone and iPad by the App Store.

Over 12 million people use Pocket to easily save articles, videos and more for later. With Pocket, all of your content goes to one place, so you can view it anytime, on any device. You don’t even need an Internet connection.

Don’t lose track of the interesting things you find by emailing yourself links or letting tabs pile up in your browser. Just save them to Pocket.

Save articles, videos, recipes, and webpages you find online or from your favorite apps.

If it’s in Pocket, it’s on your phone, tablet or computer, even when you’re offline. Perfect for commutes, travel, and curling up on your couch.

See your saved items in a simple, easy-to-view layout that improves the viewing experience of any page.

Access what you’ve saved offline. Set up Pocket to only download when connected to Wi-Fi to reduce data usage.

Whether you’re browsing online or on-the-go with your favorite apps, Pocket lets you save great content wherever you find it. After you’re done reading, send the articles and videos you love to another friend’s Pocket, or share to Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, or Email.

Save as much as you want, Pocket will highlight the best and most relevant content in your list.

Upgrade to Pocket Premium for a more powerful Pocket experience. Premium includes Permanent Library to keep a personal backup of what you save, Full-Text searching to find anything in your list, and Suggested Tags to get organized fast.

Pocket is available for Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, the Web and any other phone or tablet.

You can also save to Pocket with our Browser Extensions for Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Why don't you like Pocket?!
Jeff replied:
I don't like how it forces me to organize my links. I went back to Instapaper.

Do you like this better than Instapaper? If so, why?
Bart Dorsey replied:
No, Instapaper is much better for reading. I use Pocket just for saving websites with embedded videos. I wish there was some kind of "watch it later" type app, because Pocket isn't really super great at this, but it's the only one I've really found that does a decent job.
Michael Johnston replied:
Thanks. That makes sense.
Really? I prefer Pocket still for reading. I also use it as my "Watch it Later" library.
Dan said:
Bart - I use iOS app Tweet Library with a Library called "Video's for later" then I email that to myself and I watch on whatever device I'm near.

I don't recommend it because it doesn't show length of an article and doesn't have a way to choose between deleting or archiving an article, two features I heavily use in Instapaper. I've gone back to Instapaper quickly for that reason. I did like its Instapaper import feature, though that was not able to bring over my favorites.
If you press an hold the 'Archive' button in the current version it let's you choose between the Delete or archive options.
