Why You Should Replace Pocket With Google Inbox
Pinterest Stumbleupon Whatsapp

Pocket is the undeniable read-it-later leader, but Google seems to be gunning for a spot in that space. Two Google services have the potential to replace Pocket, but there’s a caveat: right now, they’re still pretty bare bones.

Google Inbox, Google’s optional alternative to the standard Gmail layout, aims to make sure that you see the most important messages you’ve received. With the Chrome extension Inbox by Gmail, you can save articles from your browser to your Inbox.

Whether in the web or mobile versions of Inbox, saved articles will all appear in one bundle.

GoogleInbox1

Expanding that bundle will show the full list.

GoogleInbox2

Clicking on a link will open up the story on the original website. There is no way to save articles for offline viewing, and it doesn’t have Pocket’s ability to offer a clean, ad-free version display of the article.

Why Use Google Inbox Instead?

The way that the service functions, you can use Google Inbox as a to-do list. If you’re saving articles are part of your workflow, Google Inbox might just make that process easier by incorporating your reading list into that.

You can also add alerts for individual articles, so if there’s something you need to be reminded to read, Google Inbox will let you know. And, lastly, it might be helpful to have everything available in one app or tab.

If you prefer a tagged or organized read-it-later experience, Google Save might be the preferrable option for you. Again, saved articles can’t be read offline, but you can tag saved articles to keep things under control.

Would you use Google Inbox instead of Pocket? Let us know in the comments.

    It's really very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV, therefore
    I only use internet for that purpose, and get the latest news.

    First off I would like to say great blog! I
    had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior
    to writing. I've had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!discount nba jerseys China

    One major problem with the Google Inbox (app) is that, if you have filters set up for processing emails to specific labels (especially those that you have skip the inbox), using Google Inbox (app) nullifies that setting, and your filters apply the required label but do not archive from the Inbox. I have a *lot* of filters set up to whisk emails out of the inbox into 'folders' (aka labeled), but upon trying Inbox all of my filters stopped the archival process, making a huge mess of my inbox.

    Well:
    a) on desktop it works only in Chrome. Not my browser of choice both on PC or Android - and lot of people agree with that.
    b) For mobile devices it doesn't save articles offline. Major drawback.
    c) Lot of people - like me - like to partition. For me Inbox (and rest of googleland) is for 'semiserious stuff' - ie bills,email notifications, tasks, while pocket(combined with feedly) is for more interest-related. Mixing different parts of life in one app is invitation for distraction and creating mess.

      so you will never use a good service just because of a thought, that it can be closed?

      and are you sure Pocket (a small startup of several people) will last forever?

    Hi,

    not a bad idea but there is an bookmarklet or an extension to save directly an article to inbox (like Pocket extension)?
