Librarian-Approved Apps: Pocket

Pocket is app that saves web pages and articles for you to read later. It’s great because you can save an article on a computer and read it on your phone later. Or vice versa. Often when I’m scrolling through Twitter I’ll see links to articles I want to read, but not right now. All I have to do is open the link, save the article in Pocket, and it will be on my phone and computer whenever I’m ready to read it.

Pocket is an app for phone and there’s a browser extension that allows you to save pages as you browse. As long as you’ve logged in with the same account on both devices, your lists will sync up.

Get started with Pocket now.
