Pocket

Pocket

Pocket, previously known as Read It Later, is an application for managing a reading list of articles, videos and images from the internet.

When you find something on the web that you want to view later, put it in Pocket. It automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer so you can view it any time, even without an internet connection.
