Program Introduces Enhanced Product With New Features
Organization and accessibility is getting a boost thanks to Pocket Premium.
Announced Wednesday, Pocket Premium is an add-on to Pocket — a program launched in 2007 — that can simplify finding content on the Web despite its location, the last time a user looked at it and how it was found.
The company’s website describes Pocket Premium as “the most powerful Pocket experience to date. It lets you find anything instantly, get organized effortlessly, and relax knowing you have a permanent copy of what you save.”
As the site explains, the Internet never stops changing and that can mean information once found easily may be more difficult to locate in a short time. With Pocket Premium, though, users can save the items they find interesting and easily access it once they’ve stored it in their Pocket Premium library.
Acting somewhat like bookmarking sites, the program’s Permanent Library stores a copy of articles and Web pages a user saves. The program stores that content meaning it is permanently safe and can always be found, even if it is deleted from the Web.
Two other cool features are the powerful search feature and the suggested tags option. In the first, users have an enhanced search option that lets them locate content their preferred way across their entire Pocket — by full text, topics, tags, authors, and more.
The tags feature means users can organize their content using suggested tags by Pocket. Pocket scours the information in the material and provides a variety of suggested tags based upon content and previously used tags.
Since its launch seven years ago, Pocket has registered more than 10 million users and is now integrated into more than 500 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows.
Current users can upgrade to Pocket Premium for $4.99 per month.
