HAVE you got Pocket in your pocket? If not, it is something you should consider, especially as it’s free.

HAVE you got Pocket in your pocket? If not, it is something you should consider, especially as it’s free.

Pocket works across all the usual platforms and is probably the best tool available for bookmarking longer web page features or videos on the Net that you haven’t got time to read or watch properly when you first come across them.

It can synchronise using one single account across all platforms. As a result, a common use of it is to bookmark links found on a phone for later consumption on a tablet or computer.

You know the sort of thing, filling in time on the train into Brum you find a really interesting article on your phone whilst rattling through Small Heath, the screen is too small to read it properly and you are nearly at Moor St anyway. But, a couple of screen touches and it’s bookmarked in Pocket and ready to link to on your PC as soon as get home.

Another benefit is the ability to store web pages and to link to Evernote so that the stored content is available across platforms.

So, suppose you are going on a Spring city break abroad. You find a really good guide on the web, use Pocket and Evernote to capture it to both your tablet and your phone, then browse it on the tablet in the hotel and phone in the street without clocking up data charges whilst there.
