Last month, Pocket–the app formerly known as Read It Later–announced a major update and rolled out version 5, which brought highlights, a redesigned interface, quick reads, trending reads and much more. Not resting on its laurels, the service has updated its Android app to 5.1, which makes it easier to save articles with the right tags and share them with friends.
As Erez’s Pocket 5 for Android review says, sharing is a natural extension of the reading experience. With Pocket 5.1, the service is introducing what it calls “Quick Save Actions.” So the next time you save any page to your Pocket, it’s followed by three icons at the bottom of the screen: Tag, Pocket and Share. This is your Quick Save Actions menu.
You can tap the appropriate icon to perform the task desired, like tagging or sharing. Tapping the Pocket icon immediately takes you to your list. Or if you don’t want to do anything, just don’t tap the icons. You can also make Quick Save Actions disappear quickly by tapping anywhere else on the screen.
“In addition to Quick Save Actions, Pocket 5.1 for Android also includes an improved video experience and some minor bug fixes. We’ll be rolling it out to all Android users throughout the day,” Pocket said in a blog post.
