A new species of bookmark has infiltrated my browser’s bookmarks bar. What was formerly an area exclusively filled with links to websites is now being slowly overtaken by action buttons for saving websites. You’ve got your Instapaper, your Read Later, your Readability, your “Pin It” button for Pinterest, send to Kindle, send to Evernote, and on and on. It was time to pick one “save for later” service, and this week I’ve decided: It’s Pocket.
Formerly called “Read it Later”, my new service recently made a wise name change and redesign. It’s simple tool: Pocket lets you save web articles, images, and videos to one central holding location that you can access from Android, iOS, your browser, even a Kindle. It’s like a really well organized, easy to use Dropbox for stuff you want to read later. Aside from the browser, you can send stuff to Pocket via email or from a long list of participating apps. Using the internet just got a whole lot easier.blog comments powered by Disqus
