Pocket, the premier Save for Later app, lets you consume and share content whenever you want, wherever you want, even without an internet connection.

It's been called "a DVR for the web" by the New York Times, Business Week, Time, TechCrunch and more. 

When you come across an article, video or a webpage you'd like to read but can't at that time, save it to Pocket. You can then read or watch it whenever you have a moment, whether it's on the couch, during your commute, on the plane, train, or practically anywhere. 

Millions of users save articles, videos, travel guides, recipes, how-to and reference documents, and more on Pocket, automatically syncing in a stunning and simple interface across devices like iPad, iPhone, Android, desktop and mobile web, Kobo e-reader, Chrome apps, Kindle Fire and now wearable devices like the Samsung Gear.
