Pocket updates iOS app, bringing in-app sharing of articles

updated 10:48 pm EDT, Wed April 17, 2013

Friends who also have Pocket can 'loan out' articles, movies, more

Reading, syncing and content storage app Pocket -- formerly known as "Read It Later" -- has added in-app sharing of videos, web pages, photo galleries and articles between users in its newest update, version 4.5, released on Wednesday. A new "Send to Friend" button has been added that allows users to forward on favorite saved items to other Pocket users, keep track of what they've sent to whom (and using which service), and read or post comments from or to recipients in a new inbox inside the free application. Items can also now be forwarded by push notification.

Users can add their own comments or highlights to an article, video, web page or gallery before sending it on to friends, and can also still share items of interest via Twitter, emailed URL and Facebook as before. Articles can also be saved to Evernote for future access or read offline when no Internet is available. The update is 13.6MB in size and available now on the iOS App Store.
