Read It Later becomes free, now called Pocket
The cross-platform Read It Later mobile app, which allows users to save web content for offline reading, has now been renamed to Pocket. What's more, the app has become free in the process. The app is available for Android and iOS devices as well as a version optimized for the Kindle Fire's version of Android.
Users can still save articles, videos, and web pages for viewing later. The content from more than 300 apps such as Flipboard, Twitter, Pulse, and Zite can also be saved for offline viewing. They can then log into the app from any other platform, including a browser from a desktop computer, and see that content.
The app has been around for four years, during which time it amassed 4.5 million users. Most consider it one of the core competitors to Instapaper and, to a lesser extent, Readability.
