Indeed, Pocket has begun offering other app developers a new API that will enable them to build free and paid mobile apps that can interact with Pocket in a variety of different ways.
"This is great for Web-accessible content, but since so much content is now exposed through apps on mobile platforms, there are now APIs available for developers to allow their clients to manage this content offline -- much like Web content," Hilwa explained.
Pocket's Design Refresh
The new Pocket app released Tuesday sports a streamlined user interface that makes it easier for users to categorize and access the Web content they elect to store.
"Our new visual list includes thumbnail images for your saved content, so it's easier to see what you've saved," Weiner wrote in a blog.
The refreshed offering has been retooled to take maximum advantage of the latest high-definition displays.
"We've created a lighter, cleaner and -- in our humble opinion -- more beautiful interface and full-screen reader view," Weiner said.
Pocket's design makeover also incorporates new filters that automatically detect video and image content to enable single-tap access. Additionally, users can now star favorite items and create their own custom tags as well as discover specific text content through the use of keyword searches.
