The crowning feature of Pocket for macOS is not just its ability to gather URLs, but also saving those entire pages on your account and syncing that data across all your devices, enabling you to access all your bookmarked pages in full even if you don’t have an internet connection active at that time.
With a list of features that grew from the moment the app was introduced in 2007 by developer Nathan (Nate) Weiner, this service managed to receive tremendous praise from media, developers, and users. It is available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and Windows.
The main feature of the extensions is its ability to grab the entire web page that you have found during your daily browsing (interesting blog post, page of an internet forum, YouTube video, research paper, …), and save it for later reading and sharing with friends.
Almost everything can be bookmarked with one click or a touch of your finger, saved for later use, and then re-discovered and consumed later on whatever device you own. Its entries can be assigned with tags so that you can easily manage them and search them.
The process of bookmarking requires you either to use a small-bookmarklet that you can press on any page, which will automatically add a page into your account, all modern desktop browsers have plugins and extensions for Pocket, mobile devices (iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry) have their own native apps that integrate bookmarking into mobile browsers, and more than 1500 additional applications have taken advantage from Nathan Weiner’s APIs to integrate the services into their own.
The interface of Pocket for macOS is modern and slick, managing to look and feel better than its closes competition of Instapaper. When you log in to GetPaper.com you will be welcomed with the view of your saved articles, represented in a thumbnail list that you can sort in few different ways (grid, different sizes, several sorting options, and ability to filter out only articles, videos, and images).
For each article, you can change font size, and turn on/off night mode for easier reading. UI if the app is scalable on all display sizes, ranging from Mac monitors to small smartphones, enabling you consistent experience and easy access to all your saved URLs.
Registration and cost
Registration for the extensions is very easy and quick, asking from you only your valid email address, username, and password. Logging via Facebook and Twitter credentials is not possible. It does not require you to pay anything to sign up, all of its features are available for everyone for free, and there are no premium accounts or in-site purchases.
Pocket for Mac truly represents one of the best bookmarking services you can find today, especially if you are a user that likes to have physical copies of your bookmarked destination on all your devices. With easy use, a nice interface, and perfect syncing, It has to find a place in your browser or portable device.
