The excellent Pocket (formerly know as Read It Later) app for iPad was updated last week, to Version 5.0. The headline for the update touts that Pocket 5.0 is ‘smarter, more dynamic, and offers streamlined navigation and search’.
One of the most notable new features in this update is Highlights – which is said to surface the best and most relevant content from your list. I’ve been using Pocket 5.0 for almost a week now and so far this new section is doing a good job.
Here’s the full list of changes in Pocket 5.0:
We’ve designed it to help you spend more time reading, watching and consuming the best content in your list, and less time looking for it.
Pocket 5.0 introduces Highlights, a feature that uses Pocket’s insights to surface the best and most relevant content in your list.
A new streamlined navigation makes it easier than ever to jump to your List, Highlights, Favorites, and Archive, and quickly filter your content no matter where you are in your list.
We’ve also unified search to make it easy to find anything in Pocket. It’s no longer necessary to re-enter your search when switching between My List and Archive to find what you’re looking for.
Pocket has become one of my most used iPad apps, was one of our picks for the Best iPad Apps of 2012, and I love that it just keeps getting better.
Here’s an App Store link for Pocket; it’s a free app.
