Pocket, formerly known as Read It Later, is the ultimate digital bookmarking service in our opinion. And the Web version of the app has just got a major update that includes a few redesigned elements, new features and under-the-hood tweaks that improve the speed of downloading lists and loading images.
Pocket is focusing on reducing visible elements with this update and has removed the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen to include its elements in the top bar. Now, the toolbar is all you need for all actions. Pocket also includes Retina-compatible images to make it a beautiful experience on any device.
The Article View, which strips an article of unnecessary elements and reformats it for a better reading experience, has got new fonts, a sepia theme option, refreshed layout and typography of each article and support for retina images. It will now automatically adjust margins, line lengths and line heights to create the most readable view. And there are other ways you can improve your reading experience too.
If you have a large list in your Pocket, you probably want to organize it. The new update makes improvements to view and edit tags from the toolbar, including auto-completion of existing tags. Also, bulk editing has been updated to be faster and easier.
Pocket for Web is now also more keyboard-friendly. For example, you can use the J and K keys to scroll through articles, A to archive it, F to favourite it and O to jump to the original view. Tap ? at any time while in Pocket to get a full list of all the keyboard shortcuts.
So go ahead and give Pocket a whirl on the Web, and to really get the most out of it, marry it with great IFTTT recipes.
