App-a-Day: Pocket

By Andy Feng on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

 

Happy Tuesday everyone. Today’s App-a-Day is short and sweet. We’re going to piggyback off of yesterday’s post about Slack and introduce another nifty productivity tool that’ll make your life a little bit easier.

 

 

Slack is great for messaging and sharing with teammates, but sometimes we need to share things with only ourselves. These are the times when we stumble upon that insightful article or funny gif link and want to save it for later.

 

 

We could bookmark the link, email it to ourselves, or even post it in a Slack group with no one else in it. All these solutions work just fine, but I've found that by far the easiest and fastest way to save links for later is with a small app called Pocket.  

 

 

Pocket is simple plugin that will allow you to save web or mobile links with a single click. Users can browse saved links using the Pocket app or directly from their browser. There’s not much to explain. Pocket is one of those singular focus apps that just works. It does one thing very very well and that thing happens to be saving and bookmarking your links.

 


That’s about it. If you find yourself in a situation where you’re regularly saving links to browse later, try using Pocket. It’ll make your life a lot easier and you’ll never lose another link again. So the next time you run into a link you wanna save, you can simply put it in your Pocket….
