It’s easy to get information overload these days. We’re inundated with 24-hour news networks and social media feeds that never stop. Often there’s more good content than there is time to digest it. This is a big reason why I use Pocket.
Pocket is my “save for later” tool. If I see a headline that piques my interest or an article that looks like something I’d like to share on my Twitter feed, I save it to Pocket. Within Pocket, I aggregate content that I either want to read later for personal use or read later to see if I’d like to share it with my tribe.
Here’s what I like about Pocket:
- It’s easy to install. It takes less than five minutes and seamlessly integrates across all my devices.
- It’s learning-curve free. Pocket is uncomplicated. You see something you’re interested in saving, you tap the Pocket icon and it’s saved. Got it? Got it.
- It’s clean and organized. Pocket’s design is easy on the eyes. The app doesn’t overload you with content and icons. It does one thing and it does it very well.
- It’s useful. Pocket is the best app I’ve found for aggregating content and reading it when it’s convenient for me.
- It’s on my time table. Now if there’s anything that looks interesting to me I can save it for later, read it, repost it, and even archive it.
Pocket is hands-down one of the most useful apps for providing useful content to my network. What tools help you add value to your world?
