Pocket for iPad

Pocket (formerly Read It Later), the excellent offline reading app for the iPad and iPhone, was updated this week – to Version 4.3.

This isn’t a huge update with showstopping new features, but rather a solid update with a number of nice minor enhancements. Here’s the full change list for this latest version:

New:
★ Share to Facebook and Sina Weibo (新浪微博) using the account on your device (iOS 6 only)
★ Delete articles directly while reading – just tap and hold the Archive button
★ Jump all the way back to your list after opening links while reading – just tap and hold the Back button
★ Increase the maximum font size in Article View
★ The Get Started tutorial is now available from Help at any time
Fixes:
✓ Sharing certain articles to Evernote no longer displays an error
✓ Evernote International users in China can now log in
✓ Saving to Evernote while offline no longer causes a crash
✓ Tweet Attribution will now appear while using Pocket offline
✓ Gap no longer appears below the last item in the list
✓ Other bug fixes, design refinements, and improvements

I especially like the ability to delete articles while reading and to up the maximum font size. We’re lucky to have two excellent apps of this type on iOS: Pocket and Instapaper – and even more fortunate because both are regularly updated and continually improving.

Here’s an App Store link for Pocket, it’s a free app.

  1. I like Pocket overall, but don’t like that they removed the ability to email an entire article.
