As you might expect, all of us on the Pocket team are avid readers. Whether it’s going through everything we’ve saved to Pocket or opening up a paperback novel, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of sitting down to relax and read at the end of a day.
And as we saw last week, many of our users feel the same way. Our most active users averaged 1,483,764 words read this year in Pocket, which we discovered was the equivalent of reading The Great Gatsby thirty-one times!
Needless to say, we were impressed. Which is why we are especially excited about our recent integration with Kobo.
The Kobo Experience
Pocket for Kobo offers a completely new and unique experience for reading web content, transforming the look of your saved articles to that of a book. Though it will feel different than reading Pocket on your tablet, phone, or computer, all the features you’ve come to expect from a Pocket experience are included on your Kobo eReader, such as:
- Always in Sync: Your list stays up to date, and new items appear automatically on the device when they’re saved.
- Archive, Favorite and Delete: Manage and organize your list like you would in any Pocket app.
- Offline Access to Saved Articles: Articles that appear on your Kobo will be available even without an Internet connection.
- Beautiful Reading View: Articles displayed in Kobo’s reader look fantastic, and you’ll be able to adjust fonts, sizing, and adjust the experience to suit your needs.
We put together a little video to help you get started with using Pocket on your Kobo eReader.
Don’t have a Kobo yet? We have a surprise for you. You’ll be able to use the code “Pocket” for 10% off of any Kobo eReader, including the Kobo Touch, Kobo Glo, Kobo Aura, and Kobo Aura HD. They make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to read, and we hope you enjoy the new experience!
We wish you a wonderful holiday filled with joy, good cheer, and of course, some time to relax and read.
