Forever Evernote, iPad Edition Part 3: Pocket

Pocket

Chances are, you stumble upon a lot of articles during the day that look interesting, but you don’t have time to read them right away. Pocket, previously known as Read It Later, is an application for managing a reading list of articles from the Internet and it fully integrates with Evernote and it has an impressive spread of supported devices and apps.

Supported Devices: Pocket has official apps for iOS, Android, Chrome, and the web. There are also third party clients for Windows Phone, BlackBerry, WebOS, and others available. It won’t work on a Nook.

Supported Apps: Pocket has, by a good margin, the most support among third party apps. If you want to save articles from Found, Pulse, Flipboard, the Onion, TweetBot, the Alien Blue Reddit Client, and other apps, Pocket is the service to use. It also has browser extensions for Firefox,Chrome, and Safari, and a bookmarklet that works in any browser. For everything else, it has an easy save-by-email function. You can view the full list of supported apps here.

Why not just use the Evernote web clipper? The Evernote Web Clipper is great, but it’s not for the same purpose. Evernote and the Web Clipper are great for clipping pages you want to hold onto for later, make notes on, or otherwise use. Pocket is for things you just want to read during your leisure time, though if you wanted you could obviously just use Evernote for the same purpose. Or if while you were reading an article during your leisure time that would be great to store in Evernote, you can always send it that way.

Interface & Features: Pocket is probably the most feature-packed of the “read later” apps. Apart from the features mentioned above, Pocket can also save embedded video in any article so you can watch them inline. No other read-it-later app does this (though you must unfortunately be online for this feature to work in Pocket).

Let’s get started with Pocket for iPad!

First you are going to download the pocket for iPad app in the app store. Then, chose how to log in:

Then grant access:

Now you are at the welcome screen:

Then, you are going to add pocket as a contact so that you can email things to pocket later.

You even get to practice:

Find your apps here (I only have twitter and tumbler, so it was pretty easy).

And of course, they don’t want you to forget that you can buy things in the giftshop.

You will get the option to sync all the time (rather than by push). I use it:

And with that, you’re ready to start!

Now you can read at your own leisure.

Some of the things Pocket can do–

  • Send articles to other people via email, or—even better—straight to other Pocket users.
  • Choose from two different fonts, multiple font sizes, and three different color palettes (black on white, white on black, and sepia).
  • Choose from two views on the home screen: a tiled “card” view and a traditional list view.
  • Tag articles for easier browsing
