Pocket introduces publisher program, gives insight into saved-for-later content

Pocket, the popular DVR-like service that allows readers to save web articles and videos to enjoy later in the browser, or in apps for iOS, Android, and the Mac, has announced a new service -- for publishers. Following up on a recent Pocket blog that showed how long stories could live on inside Pocket's system -- far longer than they might otherwise stay in the spotlight on the web. That's similar to how a recorded TV episode might get watched more often, and over a longer time period, than it's original TV schedule would allow. Pocket was interested in seeing how much more often, over what exact periods, and other data. And they figured publishers might be as well.

On the future of Twitter: Developer reactions

I've already had my rant, as have John Gruber, Matthew Panzarino, Lex Friedman, M.G. Siegler, Jerry Hildenbrand, Benjamin Brooks, Shawn Blanc, and many others across the blogsphere. Which is good, because tech bloggers, especially Apple and mobile tech bloggers, tend to be monster Twitter users (and not the automated social media marketing types -- actual heavy-duty users the type of which helped spin up the service to begin with.) Yet we, like any user, will be challenged only so far as the apps we use to engage Twitter are challenged, and those apps are made by developers, and those developers are at the front lines.

So what are the Twitter developers saying? Here are some excerpts and links back, and I'll add more as I find them.

Instapaper vs Pocket vs Readability: iPhone read later app shootout

Instapaper, Pocket (formerly known as Read It Later), and Readability are all great ways to "read later", or time-shift the Web articles and other content you don't have time to read now. (Think of them as TiVo for the web.) Some are highly focused on text, others also prioritize photos and videos. Some are highly focused on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad only, others offer more cross-platform and Android support. Each one tries to solve the same problem -- letting you enjoy the content you want to enjoy, when you want to enjoy it -- but goes about it in a different way. So which one does it best, and for whom?
