How To Save Articles To Read Later – Pocket review
Ever run across a great article you didn’t have time to read at that moment but wanted to remember to come back to later?
If you want to view later, put it in Pocket.
What is Pocket?
Pocket will allow you to store all the web articles that you didn’t have time to read (or the ones that you find interesting and want to review them later).
Pocket is a free app, that allows you to clip all the web pages and blog posts articles that you want to have a look on later and store them for offline browsing when you have the time.
How to use Pocket?
If you are in front of your computer or laptop, you can install a Chrome extension and every time you find something interesting while browsing the Internet, just click on the Pocket icon
Once you save the page, you can assign any tags (to help you search it later).
Pocket has an IOs or Android app, so whatever articles you stored in your List, they will come up on your phone, so you can read it offline at your leisure.
Also, if the article has embedded rich content, like podcast or video, you can access that content from your phone as well.
You can use the Pocket app on your smartphone not just to read it, but to organise articles.
One great feature is “listen to article feature”, so you can use the app when you are in the gym training, or while running or commuting as it has a narrate feature, so you can listen to your article while doing other things.
