Purpose: A content collection software that allows you to store items/articles/videos you want to read or view until later when you have time.
Benefits: Pocket is a great alternative to having 50 web browser tabs open because you haven’t had time to get back to reading the article on that page. It also offers articles that might be of interest to you, just in case your reading list isn’t long enough. In addition, Pocket can be utilized when you are offline, making it great for car trips, plane rides, etc.
Cost: Free, $5/mo for Premium
Opinion: Pocket is a great content collection software. I highly recommend it for people living with those 50 open tabs and a fear of their browser accidentally closing. However, like with any content collection software, there is always the risk of over collecting and disorganization making it hard to find what you originally wanted to read. Being organized can make the difference between Pocket being a black hole or being a bookmark tool.
