    To celebrate the one year anniversary of its rebranding, Pocket (formerly Read It Later) has implemented new sharing capabilities.

    Pocket has long had tools to share articles via social networks like Facebook and Twitter, but has added a new "Send to Friend" function along with a redesigned Share Menu.

    Send to Friend offers a way to share annotated content from Pocket with anyone. Select an article, add comments or highlights, and then email it to a friend. If it is sent to another Pocket user, the notification will be received directly in the app.
    Pocket is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    This is probably my most-used iOS app after messages and music.

    I vaguely remember "Read It Later", but never used it.

    After checking this out in greater detail, it seems like something I'd use (I use the iOS Reading List quite a bit).
    Regardless of what it's like, the price is right - free.

    Pocket is great. It seems like something long missing from computer-based Internet access prior to iDevices. I send long, interesting finds to Pocket between trips and then have lots of desirable reading (offline) when traveling... kind of like a magazine filled with hand-picked articles of great interest to me. Again, <Cue Tony the Tiger catch phrase here>!

    A couple updates ago, they removed the ability to email the full article text :(

    At least Instapaper still allows it.

    I do. Cracking little app. Lets me save stuff from my work laptop (when using Google Chrome) as well as saving from Tweetbot and iOS Safari on iPhone and iPad. It works well for my uses.

    The app to read your saved links is tidy too and it's free. :)

    Is Pocket similar to Readability? Just wondering if better and/or offers more functionality.
