Android App to Read Articles Later and Offline

Android App to Read Articles Later and Offline Almost all of us spent half the time of our day scrolling through social media posts or browsing the internet. While doing so, many times we stumble upon articles or videos that catch our attention in an instant & we fancy reading/watching them, but cannot manage to do so right away because of some other important pending task we need to do at that moment.

The best thing to do then would be to save them for later. Bookmarking is one option to get back to them in your spare time. But wouldn’t it be just perfect if you could access all those articles & videos in one place, on all your devices, anywhere, anytime and even without the need of internet? Or if you could carry around everything you need to read or watch in your pocket so you could enjoy them on your way to places when you are free & bored. That’s essentially what the Pocket app is made for!

Concept and Functionality

Originally created as an app called “Read it later” meant to store articles & web pages for offline reading only, it, later on, grew into a general-purpose app –POCKET, which allows you to bookmark, save & store articles, videos, web pages and almost everything you need to access at your leisure!

All you need to do is get the app, make an account, sign in & get started. Then, you can save any of the multimedia from anywhere-including your browsers & all favorite apps. Whether you are reading an article on your web browser or watching a YouTube video- Saving them to your Pocket is only a matter of taps. You only need to hit the android ‘share’ option to save media to Pocket, while viewing them.

The app doesn’t ask for any permissions and saves your media instantaneously. The app then lets you access everything you save, anytime you want and even simplifies your reading /viewing experience by removing all the extra stuff & ads in the saved version.
