Pocket
was founded in 2007 by Nate Weiner to help people save interesting articles, videos and more from the web for later enjoyment. Once saved toPocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch, during commutes or travel — even offline. Pocket is integrated into more than 1500 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows. Now, my favorite feature of Pocket is its ability to convert Text To Speech, in other words, you can have your pocket articles read to you while working out, driving to class, riding on an airplane…wherever! This is a really great student/teacher trick to know for those of us looking for ways to be more productive. It is especially great for auditory learners.
