Two weeks ago I signed up for Pocket, an app that let’s you save articles and webpages to read later. So far, I love it. It’s changing how I read and archive content. I scroll through my Twitter feed and mark interesting things to read later, and only when I’m done do I head over to read them. It’s also a great way to kill time on a bus if you have a couple interesting links right in front of you. Pocket integrates with Twitter, Google Reader, and your browser so you can quickly save pieces. And the web and mobile apps make reading articles a pleasure – no pesky ads or annoying layouts. It just looks good. Plus, you can favorite and search for articles.
That’s just my own little plug for an app I thought was great! This week’s link roundup features a wider variety of articles than in the past, mostly because I pulled them from my favorites on Pocket over the last two weeks.
