Pocket: Organizing What You Find to Read

Pocket is designed to let you save articles, videos and websites in a click. It saves just the text, videos, or images, for a content checklist of noteworthy things you want to see later without distraction. By default, you can filter your Pocket content by type, add tags, star posts, and archive them. You also have the option to organize the saved items by tags and categories, to read everything you want in the context you want. To organize or read everything that was saved, just open the application later, and it will be there.

Originally named Read it Later, Pocket is designed to let you save articles, videos, and websites in a click. It saves just the text, videos, or images, for a content checklist of noteworthy things you want to see later without distraction.

By default, you can filter your Pocket content by type (articles, videos, or images), add tags, star posts, and archive them.

How To Save Items On 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?

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.

I use Pocket as a partner, as a second brain, not just another smartphone app. To organize or read everything that was saved, just open the application later, and it will be there. It is simple!

You also 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.

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.

Pocket is the app to read, and Evernote is the app that use to store these readings that could be a reference for the future, so I follow this checklist:

1. Find it
2. Save it to Pocket
3. Reading time
4. If it could be a reference, save to EvernoteΒ 
5. Archive

By the way, every week I have a Newsletter Pulse curated with the main content I accessed throughout the week, called Weekly Pulse.Β You can know more in my website here.
