When you’re on the go, having what you need in your pocket is always convenient. The Pocket App stores articles and videos. Once the article is downloaded it can be read offline anywhere. This proves to be extremely useful when I am on the tube (assuming I get a seat that is, which is unlikely – but anyways!)
My husband and I have been doing various research on the current app market. When he comes across interesting articles that would shed some light on the launching on our first app, he puts it in my pocket. Although, I’d prefer a cheque book in my pocket, but articles for now would do 🙂
How the app works:
I have a desktop client on my iMac which allows me to save links and send them to my app. In addition, another user (in my case, my husband) can add to your individual pocket list.
It’s a good sharing platform. Also, it’s compatible with Flipboard (you can check out my review on that app) that makes it easy for users to read articles offline later. Once the articles/links are saved they appear in a list format.
The picture depicts the list format. Furthermore, it shows the articles that have been sent to my list by my husband – Amit Bajaj.
The app also simplifies searching for your saved material with the categories above. This functionality makes it easy if you have numerous articles/videos saved and want to search for a specific one.
This app is pretty handy – download it and give it a shot and put it in your “pocket”. (Couldn’t resist being cheesy – sorry! haha)
