iOS 8 App Extensions: Pocket | iPad Insight

One of the best new features in iOS 8 is Extensions – which allow 3rd party apps to interact and hook into each other to a degree never seen before in iOS. This has been available in Android for years, and it’s a huge time-saver and productivity boost to now have it on iOS.

Plenty of apps have been updated to use iOS 8 extensions, but one of those that I find most useful is Pocket – the excellent ‘read it later’ app – because there are numerous things I want to save to Pocket on a daily basis. Before iOS 8 extensions you could only save things to Pocket in apps that connected to your Pocket account for authorization, and there was a very limited number of such apps.

Now sharing to Pocket is widely available in iOS 8. You can share to it directly from Safari, one of the ideal places for read it later type content.

You can even share to Pocket from the App Store now – which might be quite handy for times when you’re looking over an app but haven’t been able to decide whether to pull the trigger on buying it.
