Pocket app gets updated, now better at organizing and discovering content

Pocket held a press event in San Francisco Wednesday, November 13 where founder Nathan Weiner focused on unveiling an updated version of the popular bookmarking tool for the mobile platform.

Freshly dubbed Pocket 5.0, the app holds two big changes to help streamline custom content for users, with the first being HIghlights.

The tool essentially organizes content that it sees as the best and most relevant to you based on the items already in your Pocketed list of sites you frequent the most, tags you've created and authors you follow.

New color-coded badges mark your Pocketed sites to help differentiate entries - those hundreds of items are now better organized into categories based on impact (Best Of), popularity (Trending) and length (Long Reads and Short Reads).

The company also released a new developer tool called Pocket Preferences which allows third party apps to integrate topics, sites and authors you save most and lets you connect them to other apps using your Pocket account - making bookmarking on mobile devices much easier and quicker, plus content is now better curated to your interests.

For iOS and Android, plus more?

The app update also includes better side navigation allowing easier access to your List, Highlights, Tags, Favorites and Archive and quickly filter your content, much like the Facebook app.

The update hits iPhones and iPads today and will be available on Android devices November 20. The company is also working to move the app to other platforms "soon."
