Comments from some of those who selected Pocket as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

  • ” I use Pocket extensively to bookmark content to read later. It works as the sift from Feedly; content I want to read is stored there for as long as I need. It’s a great way to store links people send via Twitter etc to read later.” Andrew Jacobs, UK https://lostanddesperate.com/2019/09/04/top-10-tools-for-learning-2019/ 
  • “Really effective tool – device agnostic, synced and excellent in conjunction with browser integration to add items” Learning Content Developer, Spain
  • “Pocket is a great way of saving and curating content to read later. I can access it offline and it gives me great learning suggestions via email.” Senior Organisational Development Consultant, New Zealand
