App Review: Pocket

Ever see something really cool or interesting on the internet while surfing the web on your phone or iPad? Ever been on Twitter and found a really cool post or link to a video, website/blog, or PDF? If you answered yes…the next question is this: How do you remember where this information is when you finally have time to sit down with a cup of coffee and look at it? If you are like me, you might jot it down on a piece of paper, or email the link to yourself. And, if you are like me, you can’t find it when you wan to. It simply gets lost and you never come across it again. It can be very frustrating. Well, it turns out that there is an app that stores those little pearls for you. You can install the app on your phone, iPad, and desktop. I just started using it, and it’s amazing. I don’t know how I survived before this app. Ladies and gentlemen…I give you Pocket.

 

Here is what it looks like on my iPhone. It is also looks really nice on the iPad. Simply store tweets, links, etc. and they are right there at your fingertips whenever you have a chance to view them.

 

 

Here is how it works. Let’s say you are going through Twitter and you find something you like and would like to come back to at some point:

 

 

You simply click on the link….

 

Then click the “Read later” tab….and now the link is saved to the Pocket app. You can view on your iPhone (or other device), iPad, or desktop.

 

And now that link appears in your Pocket app…just click and review. Easy. Have I been living under a rock or something?
