Today is Thursday. That means…Writer Tools!
Well, I’m excited about it even if you aren’t.
Today we talk a little bit about “Pocket” http://getpocket.com.
Pocket is one of the many utilities for capturing web content for future perusal.
I’ve used http://delicio.us, and currently also use Evernote’s web clipper.
Pocket is easy to use. There are chrome, iOS versions, Android and Kindle Fire versions. You can send to your pocket via e-mail, and from twitter, zite and flipboard (and others). Windows Mobile, WebOS, Symbian 60, & Blackberry too! This is a huge expandable pocket so you don’t need to worry about your shirt having a huge lump. 🙂
I like to use Pocket for quick capture. I may move the content over to Evernote later if I know I want to use the information. There is not concept of folders in Pocket, but there is the more modern method of “tagging” to organize your content, which is really much more powerful than folders.
Give it a spin. I’ll review Evernote some other Thursday.
