Read-it-later service reveals prototype app for Android Wear platform

Pocket, the read-it-later service that syncs articles across devices, has revealed a preview of its prototype app for Google's Android Wear platform. An Android Wear smartwatch is designed for delivering concise information, such as notifications, news alerts, and more; Pocket's prototype offers the ability to save content to Pocket from an alert. In a blog post, Max Weiner of Pocket gives an example of a friend sending the user an interesting article, which sends an alert to the Android Wear smartwatch. If the user wants to save that article to Pocket to read later, they can swipe, and an action pops up to save to Pocket. Considered a work in progress by the company due to Android Wear's SDK still in Developer Preview, a release date is not yet available.
