Do you ever get frustrated that you now can’t find that great article you saw only yesterday? Typically in our busy lives you come across something really interesting just before you have to leave for a meeting. Whilst sat in a waiting room scrolling through twitter you spot a possible answer just as your name is called. Pocket could be your solution.
I have been using the pocket app on my phone and the pocket extension in my internet browser for just over a month. I highly recomend it. Here is a quick run through of how to use it.
First you will need to download the app to your phone and install the extension in your browser. Pocket works with ios and android and with most browsers.
Here is a screenshot of my ‘pocket’ from my laptop and phone.
To add a web page to pocket from your phone:
- Whilst viewing the page you want to save click on the 3 dots in the top right corner
- A drop down box will appear
- Click on ‘Share via….’
- Share icons will appear
- Click on ‘Add to Pocket’
To add a web page from your internet browser simply click the pocket icon adjacent to your search bar.
Your web page will be saved to your pocket My list. You can click on it and open it in a simplified format without adds at any time. A screenshot of this ‘article view’ is below
You can easily print this article view from your browser. A feature I particulary like is pocket’s ability to read the article to me. I pop in my ear buds and listen to saved documents whilst on my dog walk
- Click the 3 dots in the top right
- Choose ‘Listen (TTS)
I hope you give pocket a go and find it helpful. As ever I’d love to hear how you get on with it. Let me know at Synergy Now facebook page
