Read It Later

Pocket for Android adds text-to-speech

Sometimes, we all get super lazy and just want somebody to read things to us. Other times, our eyes are so burned out that we can't stand to look at another sentence or we're just too busy to focus on reading something that we have to listen to it while we're working. Either way, the popular bookmarking and read-it-later app Pocket (formerly Read It Later) updated its Android app today with a new "Listen" feature that reads aloud articles to you.

Read It Later is now Pocket: we go hands-on

If you're a hardcore web user, odds are pretty good that you've got some way of managing your content so that articles, images and videos that are interesting, but not pressing, are saved for later. Android has a lot of options for this, but one of the most popular has been Read It Later, a bookmarking and sharing service that's gained millions of users over the last few years. Today Read It Later becomes Pocket, and with the branding identity change comes a brand new (and free!) app for Android. We took a look around the new Pocket to see how it stacked up to Read It Later.
