I admit, I’m a bit late on the bandwagon here. Though Pocket was mentioned to me around a year ago, I didn’t feel I had a need for it at the time so didn’t really look into it.
However, during my recent trip to Turkey, where WiFi is slow and 3G data roaming incredibly expensive, Pocket turned out to be just what I needed!
The concept is simple, but works.
Basically, you download the Pocket app to your devices, then when you’re online, add the article to your Pocket list, then it’ll download to your device so you can read the full article (with pictures) when you’re offline on the go.
Here’s a quick guide to getting it setup:
1. Create a Pocket account.
2. Download the Pocket app to your devices (apps are available for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac).
3. Click ‘Share page’, then ‘Add to Pocket’.
It’s as simple as that! Your device will then download the webpage via WiFi/3G/4G, ready for you to read offline if you wish.
