Pocket makes saving content a cinch. The app lets you save content like articles, videos and web pages in a “pocket” and view them when you have time. Pocket lets you save from your browser, or from popular apps like Twitter. Once the content is in a “pocket” (whether on your smartphone, tablet or computer) you can view it whenever you want- even without an Internet connection.
Unlike many apps, Pocket isn't overloaded with bells and whistles. It’s streamlined, clean and simple, which minimizes your learning curve and increase the chances you’ll actually use it. That’s good news for entrepreneurs who already have a full plate. Another nice feature is that Pocket gets rid of ads and miscellaneous text in the articles you save, and provides you with primary content only.
You can use Pocket in list or grid view, and thumbnails enhance user experience. Pocket’s tagging feature and simple drop-down menu make it easy to find what you’re looking for. You can save to Pocket from a huge assortment of apps, and as you’d expect you can share and publish to places like Tumblr, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon or simply send content to your email.
Evernote offers a lot more features than Pocket, but it can also be a bit intimidating. Pocket is a “save it now, enjoy it later” app, and you can do that with Evernote, but you can also do a lot more.
Evernote has nearly endless features. A few we think are helpful to business owners and those who collaborate include its Webclipper, which allows you to “clip” and save part (or all) of a web page, including text, images, and links. Access to “note history” is another smart feature of Evernote.
Business owners and those working in teams might find themselves revising notes saved to the app multiple times. Should an important item or idea get deleted along the way, Evernote Premium allows you access to previous versions of your notes. And when you see something (online or in person) you’d like to share with co-workers, Evernote allows you to capture an image of it, add audio, save and share it. Evernote’s multitude of features makes collaboration easy.
