Pocket (formerly Read It Later) has been updated with a new feature that implements sharing. If you like an article that you put off to read later through Pocket, you’ll be able to share that article with friends. You can also leave comments along with highlighted quotes to share.


New App: Readtime Helps You Manage Your Reading List

Is it weird that we need to have a time management app to deal with our time management apps? Maybe, but this is a pretty cool idea, nonetheless.

Set a duration and Readtime intelligently queues up just the right number of articles to fill the remaining time so that you can focus on reading.

When you’ve finished reading an article, simply swipe to archive it and if there’s enough time remaining, Readtime will serve up another.

Once you start using Readtime, you’ll be surprised how quickly you get through that pile of articles you’ve been saving to read later.

Read It Later has a new app launching, and with it a brand new name: Pocket. What this brings is a brand new stylistic interface, one that aims to help users keep track of their favorite content across devices easier.

The new interface features a new view that integrates images and video previews to give a visual identity to items saved to the service. It’s also possible to switch to a simple list as well. Videos from services like Vimeo and YouTube can be called up in an HTML5 player directly in the app, instead of having to watch the video on the website itself. Filtering for just articles, images, and videos is available, and items can be tagged and filtered by these tags.

Pocket still works with old Read It Later accounts, and any app that integrated with Read It Later such as Tweetbot will find that the functionality still works the same as it did before the name change. Pocket is now completely free and ad-free for all platforms, eschewing the free/paid model the apps previously used.
