A free Pocket for internet reading
Pocket for Mac is great for making a personal reading list of articles from blogs and other web pages, Facebook posts, images, PDFs, and video clips. Just add a bookmarklet to your browser and click away. The OS version actually lacks the tile view of articles and the profile page that are both found on Pocket for iPad. The Mac version still has all the essentials: current and archived lists, tags, share button, font size adjustments, filter by content type, and the choice of original web page view or “clean” article-only view. I use the free, basic service and find that most web articles remain intact for a long time. If you want to archive things that tend to be ephemeral like social media posts, or just want to insure that you keep your web articles, consider a premium subscription.
It’s Essential & Easy to Use (6 Stars)
Pocket, the one application I use every time on my iPhone, iPad and MacBook. It is such an incredibly brilliant way to save just about anything on the web. See something you’d like to look at later? Simply click the Pocket icon and it is saved. Ready to read, even off-line? Look in Pocket under Saved Items. What could be easier than that? I have been using Pocket for many years (since it was Read It Later).
Recently I subscribed to Pocket Premium, which for a nominal fee offers some very handy additional features. With Premium what you Pocket is automatically saved intact. So, if the webpage you Saved, no longer exists - it is always available for you to read. And you can easily add tags to items you save to make them easy to find.
Pocket makes the online experience so much better. Try it and you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.
Simple and Perfect
Some apps are so simple you think to youself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that’, or similarly, ‘Why do you need an app for that. It’s too simple?’. To me, Pocket falls in that category. I constantly navigate the web and quite often there is a larger article/page that I want to come back too. Of course Safari has it’s Reading List feature which ‘sort of’ does similiar things, but where Pocket excels in it’s ease of use and organization. Futher, with bookmarks and all the other functionaliy a browser has to offer, it’s nice to have something removed and separate if for nothing else simply organization.
The UI is very well done and the workflow clean and intutive. The shortcut feature to add a page is quite handy and allows for quick navigation. I can only imagine that over time they will add more features, as many rewviewers have noticed are currently lacking.
Again, great app. Can’t wait to see what’s coming in future releases.
