Pocket Expands Into the Desktop With New Mac Application

pocket-for-macPocket, the beloved read it later service, is expanding its reach with an optimized app for Mac. Everything is there — offline access, streaming video, distraction-free reading, etc. — that users on iOS and Android have enjoyed for quite some time, with syncing that extends across all linked devices.

The app displays content elegantly, much like Reeder for Mac (which I use everyday), with a two-paned view — a list of content on the left and content you want to read nice and big on the right. Also on the left is quick access to more granular controls, where users can filter by category, items, article, etc.

Additionally, Pocket for Mac supports keyboard shortcuts, social media sharing, and viewing in native stripped down format. From the sound of it, Pocket certainly seems like the perfect extension into the PC space. Including syncing capabilities is a must, so all those articles you’re putting off are always where you are.

If you’re a Pocket fan, and use it heavily on iOS or Android, give it a spin. The presentation looks top notch, and offers the kind of functionality you’d expect out of a desktop client from a read it later service.
