Pocket: organizing what you find to read

Pocket: organizing what you find to read

Pocket is a web application, also available for iOS and Android, that allows you to save all kinds of content you find on the internet to read later in a minimalist reading.

Mobile devices are great for reading and allow to access these readings wherever we are. But, we don't have time to read some interesting link we found at the exact moment we see that item on the internet. 

Pocket is a great app that helps you save and organize content for later reading, and this can be done both from mobile devices and from your internet browser on your computer.

How to save items on Pocket?

Pocket is very simple: through an extension on your browser or in your smartphone, you just select it by tapping the browser's share button and the link will be saved instantly and in reading mode. On your Smartphone, when you install the app, you will see that among the available sharing options, just select it, and it will also be saved for later reading.

To organize or read everything that was saved, just open the application later, and it will be there. Simple!

You even have the option to organize the saved items by tags and categories, to read everything you want in the context you want. Among the portions of stuff we find on the internet, we need to be intelligent in deciding what is and isn't important for us to read. This is critical so that we don't put unnecessary content into our brain.

I use Pocket as a partner, as a second brain, not just another smartphone app. 

How I am using Pocket?

During your day, you have access to random websites to update yourself on what is happening. Social networks also offer a huge range of content to read, but it's rare that we have time to read content from beginning to end when we see that, right?

Using Pocket, I can organize everything I have to read in one place, separated by themes. This is really cool. It's like I'm making my own personal magazine of the week, so I can read it all when I have time. I usually set aside one day a week to consume all this content.
