Welcome to Pocket! We’re thrilled to have you. You’ve just taken a huge step toward reclaiming your online life, discovering fascinating new content, and making your relationship with the internet, well, better. More delightful. Time well spent.

Here’s the thing about Pocket: It allows you to do a lot of things. You can save (and organize) anything from across the web—and discover great new content in the process. So we wanted to take a brief moment to introduce you to some of our most-loved and most-popular features.

Our award-winning app

Pro tip: If you haven’t already done so, it’s a great idea to download our mobile app, which you can find in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Pocket is, by design, mobile: It’s available everywhere you go, across devices and web browsers. So when you save an article on your computer, it will be instantly available in the Pocket app on your phone or tablet—and vice versa. All of the content you save goes wherever you go, and is available whenever you are.

Save all your inspirations

Let’s talk about where you found this article you’re reading now: in the My List section of Pocket. This is your Pocket home — a space just for you and all the things that fascinate you. It’s where all the things you’ve saved for later — whether it’s an article, a tweet, a video, a recipe, and more — will live, waiting for you to come back to when you are ready.

Find hidden gems

Looking for some thought-provoking articles to read now or later? The internet is filled with buried treasures, and every day, our curious, well-read community of users unearths fascinating content from all corners of the web.

Dive into the best of the best, curated by Pocket’s editorial team, via Discover on the navigation bar.

Use Pocket your way

To get the most out of Pocket on a computer, we recommend that you install the Pocket browser extension for your browser of choice, be it Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, or Opera. On your phone, you can find Pocket in your share menu so that you can easily save anything you discover with just two taps.

Once you get going, we have a sneaking suspicion you’ll discover and save a lot of things. So we offer tags to help you keep track of everything in your Pocket. Whether you organize by politics, health or recipes, you can pin your most important tags to the sidebar for quick access, or head to All Tags to see your full list.
