Pocket launches Beta Channel to bring you more relevant content

With the amount of posts, links, videos, images, etc that we come across every day and that we are thinking of consuming, sometimes what is left is what everybody else is talking about (which is not necessarily quality) or what is the latest thing that you saved/read/watched (which again is not always that great). Pocket, that neat little tool that you can get to save links for reading later, is launching a new Public Beta Channel, which can help you with that problem, among many other features.

Pocket 5.7: Material Design, Google Now search integration

Your favorite (well, at least it is our favorite) offline reading service Pocket has received an update which makes it virtually ready for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Version 5.7 has now adapted its own version of the Material Design while still remaining essentially Pocket-like. The update also brings the ability to search for items in your app through Google Now. Android apps are "cleaning house" like crazy in preparation for Google's major update which is expected to start rolling out in the next few months.

Instapaper app updated, now free to download with IAP

Instapaper is one of those apps that you really would appreciate in these modern, mobile-centric, fast-paced times – it allows you to store articles for reading, offline and formatted for easy reading. You know, those articles that litter your timeline on your social media platforms, those things that are interesting but you just don’t have enough time to go through at the moment. It used to be that Instapaper – for a fee – allowed you to store those for your downtime reading. An app update now brings Instapaper free, with in-app purchases.

Pocket update adds new languages, Immersive Mode, more

The Pocket app has recently been updated. This latest update can already be found in the Play Store and it brings a few key additions. One of those should be especially welcomed by those with a device running Android 4.4. Kit Kat. Pocket now supports Immersive Mode, which means those using Kit Kat will be able to read in fullscreen mode and with less distraction.

Pocket 5.0 gets smarter, highlights most relevant articles

Dumping items in a sort of "inbox" to process later when you have time has become one of the basic mantras of modern-day productivity systems and is the foundation of services like Pocket, formerly known as Read It Later. But that step is only half the equation, with knowing when and where to tackle which item being the other part. This latest update to Pocket brings a bit of intelligence into the service to help you pick out the best item to read at the right time and the right place.
