Pocket for Mac now available in the Mac App Store

Pocket, the popular read it later service for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has made its way to the Mac. If you're a fan of the iOS version of Pocket, you'll be glad to know it's now available for download and yes, the Mac version is also free.

For those of us that read news feeds frequently, having a way to save certain articles, images, or videos for reading and browsing later in a must. Pocket is the first read it later service to have a Mac counterpart available.

Pocket for Mac brings the full feature set of the popular Pocket iOS and Android apps to the Mac —including offline access to saved content from anywhere. Pocket for the Mac also includes instant syncing across all devices, keyboard shortcuts, viewing of streaming video, the ability to share found content, and great organizing and search features.

If you've used the iOS version of Pocket, you'll be right at home as the layout is very simliar. Your articles will aggregate in the left hand navigation pane for easy browsing and will sync with Pocket's service wirelessly. This means any story you save on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch will be ready for viewing on your Mac when you sit down at your desk.

Pocket for Mac is available in the Mac App store now.

I love Pocket and I was so happy to see an official app in the App Store. It works great and has great shortcut keys. Was hoping for some gestures like the iOS apps, maybe in an update.
