Pocket Premium Subscription Introduced, Strives to be Dropbox of Web Content

With as many screens as we have connected to the Internet at any given time, we need a convenient way to move content across them quickly and easily. Pocket, formerly Read It Later, wants to be the first name you think of when that comes to mind. Today, the company announced a premium service of its already great offering, giving users more options when deciding where they want to consume their content.

Available on Google Play today, Pocket Premium gives users the ability to search the web, then auto-tag stories and content that they save with Pocket. Premium even provides a permanent archive for those links as well. A few years down the road, when you are looking for the cooking recipe that you saved, it will still be there even if the link has long gone from the web.

In a survey of Pocket users, this archive feature was requested “off the charts” by its users, so they gladly delivered.

Access to these premium features comes at a cost, though. Pocket Premium will run you $5 a month, but if you want to do a yearly subscription to save some money, it will be $42. If you are ready to start building your library of links and content that will be around for the rest of your years, check out Pocket in Google Play below.

    Pocket already does much more than what I need it to do. Just save articles for reading later, and then actually reading them later. Anything else is overkill for me.

    Lol that’s a lot of money for something you can automate yourself with something like linkpush.

      or evernote web clipper as mentioned below. $5 month to ‘save links’ to look at later? I’ll pass

  • Ditched Pocket recently and moved to Evernote Web Clipper in Chrome and I just share to Evernote on Android. Sick of Pocket’s short URLs and clunky web interface.

  • Am I the only person that saves things to Pocket and never looks at them again? I always forget about them

      Ughhh story of my life!

      Spend 40 minutes (each way) commuting on public transport. Just about all the saving I do to Pocket is solely for that purpose.

      I read a truly ludicrous amount on there.

    The pricing is awful… a few bucks less than net flicks. I guess for the user that is going to be using this frequently then its fine. I just dont see the value. Maybe 2 bucks a month or something.

  • Hmmm already archive articles with evernote web clipper. I do love Pocket though.
