Want to save internet content and read it later? Try a new app called Pocket

Ever think…holy &^*S there’s a lot of stuff that I want to read on the internet but then just can’t manage to remember or come back to it? As a mentor of mine often says “it’s like drinking from a fire hydrant”. While this post isn’t exactly sim or chopper related…I thought I’d share this cool new app that helps manage the considerable amount of content we come across on the internet.

Maybe you’re just finishing class or leaving work and you come across an interesting article, video or webpage…you know that staying a bit longer to read/watch it will somehow end up in working a extra weekend because your boss finds you still at the office or in medicine, just seeing one more patient… Moral of the story, you’re in a rush but don’t want to forget about the article – check out this relatively new app called “Pocket“. It saves and organizes online content for you to view it at a later date.

As most new apps do, it syncs across platforms and can be utilized offline. I’m not sure how I first found it but there’s a nice blog post on iTeachEM which reminded me about the app. I use it regularly and it works great when you’re stuck on the Toronto subway (which happens regularly) and you need something to read!
