Today’s Killer Startup: Pocket
Pocket lets you save “interesting articles, videos, and more from the web for later enjoyment.”
Why It’s A Killer Startup
I love to read and, luckily, my job as a professional blogger means that reading awesome articles from all over the internet totally counts as work. My problem, however, is that there is so much good content out there these days that if I read everything I want to read every day, I’d never get any writing done.
What I usually do is open a new window and store all my interesting articles there for consumption later but then I run into problems because I live in Guatemala and let’s just say the internet isn’t exactly primo; having all those tabs open pretty much kills my speed.
My other solution is to save them in a bookmark folder titled READ THIS FOR REAL 1/21 or something along those lines.
Can you guess how well that works out for me?
From now on, I’m going to save all of those interesting articles in Pocket. The browser plugin lets me save things with one click and I can organize them into different categories. Once an article is in there, I can access it on any of my devices – meaning I can read them on my computer when I’m done with work or on my phone when I’m, say, waiting for my boyfriend to finish getting ready when we’re going out.
(He really does take forever.)
I’ll also be using it organize articles for research. Remembering that one awesome piece about the history of haptic tech can be super hard, especially when you have a crap memory like mine. Pocket lets you add tags to each saved item, making them easy to organize and super easy to track down later.
So, no more million open tabs, no more bookmarks folders in all caps. From here on out, I’m keeping it all in my Pocket.
