Do you remember Delicious? Its was popularly used to keep, share, and discover the best of the Web. Well, Pocket wants to be the new Delicious in your pocket. Pocket (formerly Read It Later)  helps you who discover  interesting articles, videos or web pages, but don’t have time to view it. Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. Pocket is the place to store the stuff you find interesting and want to easily rediscover later.

Pocket displays your saved content in either a grid or list view, and you can also change the font size or turn on a night mode to make reading easier. Articles can be tagged, which helps you sort your bookmarks into different categories. “If it’s in Pocket, it’s on your phone, tablet or computer. You don’t even need an Internet connection.”

Pocket currently has over 4.5 million registered users and is integrated into over 300 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Android, Google Chrome, and Firefox.

To use pocket you have to install the Pocket Bookmarklet to save any page in your browser with a  click. One of Pocket’s significant new features is the ability to filter by content type; you can sort by image, video, and traditional text. Filtering by video reveals a grid of thumbnails of videos you’ve saved across Vimeo, YouTube, and other services.
