Pocket 4.1 Hits iOS, Coming To Android In The Next Couple Days
Pocket, formerly known as Read It Later, has enjoyed much success since its rebranding, and although its last update was a nice improvement, there were a few things missing. Five million users later and we’re finally seeing a Pocket worth putting our stuff in. The new and improved Pocket 4.1 hit iOS today, giving us Android users a peek at what to expect in the upcoming days.
The all new Pocket 4.1 features:
- Page Flipping mode: In addition to Pocket’s default scrolling option, you can now swipe left or right inside an article to enable Page Flipping and read one page at a time.
- Improved Dark theme and an all-new Sepia theme: We’ve made improvements to the Dark theme, and we’ve also added Sepia. With refined contrast and readability, these options make reading even more comfortable.
- Increased maximum font size: For those who prefer larger print, we’ve expanded Pocket’s font-size options so you can find the perfect fit for reading.
- Dark theme now runs throughout the app: Use Pocket comfortably at night, whether you’re in the Article View or browsing through your saved content.
- Add URLs from your clipboard: We’re making it even easier to save something for later: Pocket now automatically detects URLs that are copied to the clipboard so they can be added directly to Pocket.
- Support for additional video sites: Pocket’s in-app video streaming now supports popular sites including TED, Devour and Khan Academy.
- Various bug fixes
iOS users can grab the update now, and hopefully Pocket will keep its promise to update the Android and Kindle Fire apps within the next couple days.
