Pocket App Updated: Now Reads Articles Aloud

Pocket has always been a useful app. I used to save interesting articles to read offline when travelling home on an underground train (until one day AT&T boosted signal and HSPA+ coverage in the tunnels, that is). Pocket is also cross platform, being able to save things on an Android phone and access them on any computer, Android or iOS device. Pretty useful, right?

Today’s update just made it a lot more useful. The developers have added a new feature called Listen. It will read the whole article to you using Android’s built in text-to-speech engine. No setup required, just hit the listen button. And on Jelly Bean, I can imagine the experience to be a lot better than any other version of Android. Go update the app now, and if you don’t have it, hit the source link to download it for free!
