Pocket (Formerly Read It Later)
Bookmark sites and content for reading later with Pocket (Formerly Read It Later)

How many times have you been browsing the web on your mobile or tablet and stumbled across an article that you would like to read but don’t have the time immediately? You could simply bookmark the sites that you want to read at some point in the future, but it is all too easy for such bookmark lists to become unwieldy and there is often no way to search for an article using keywords or other criteria.

One possible solution exists in the form of Pocket – which many people may have already used in previous incarnation of Read It Later. The app acts as a filing system for content you don’t have time to read, and everything you choose to ‘pocket’ is quickly synched so that it is made available on other devices. There is support for more than 300 apps so you are not tied to content you discover through your web browser, you can also use Pocket in conjunction with Twitter clients and other social networking tools.

Anyone who has used the likes of Instapaper will be familiar with the way in which Pocket works, but this app has a much more refined interface. Seemingly taking inspiration from the likes of Flipboard, the UI is clean and uncluttered and benefits from a lovely layout. There are a variety of views to choose from and content you have saved can be filtered by type so you can quickly jump to images you have saved or videos.

The app is available for iOS and Android, but bookmarklets also exist that enable you to make use of the service from your Mac or PC. Whatever device you use to ‘pocket’ online content, it will all be made available through your online account that you can access using a computer, mobile or tablet – whatever suits you best at the time.

Verdict:

An excellent way to ensure that the web works the way you want it to, no matter what device you are using to get online.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.71

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
