Pocket

Pocket is one of those free web and smartphone/tablet apps I use all the time, and so I thought I’d already posted about it here. It’s a bookmarking, “save for later” application that syncs automatically across your devices. It is integrated with many other apps, including Flipboard, Zite, and Twitter. You can add a bookmarklet to your Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or Opera browser to save articles, videos, or anything else with one click. You can organize your saved items with tags, and you don’t need wifi to view your saved items. (This is not strictly true. Sometimes, you will only be able to see part of the article and you’ll then need to click on “switch to web view” to see the rest.)

Here’s a brief intro video:
