We've looked at a third party Pocket app before but variety is the spice of life and it's always nice to have options. Today, I bring you another third party Pocket app in the form of Read It Now. The app has been around for sometime and was formerly known as ReadOnTouch Pro. It comes to BlackBerry 10 with a new name.
If you're a Pocket user it's an app you'll want to check out. It comes complete with the ability to share directly using BlackBerry 10's share option so adding links to your account is a breeze. I like how you can read an article you have saved within the app itself. It utilises the integrated browser feature of BlackBerry 10, this allows you to read the article free of any ads, quite similar to Reader mode in the BlackBerry 10 browser. Though there is the ability to open it up in the native browser if you so wish.
If you're a Q10 user, by default, you now have a dark theme. You can switch this up in the overflow menu too. You also view your saved links in grid view or list view, whichever floats your boat.
When viewing an article, you have further options like marking the post a read. In the overflow menu you can create a PDF, save to Springpad or even to Evernote. You even have the ability to change the font settings for better reading.
There isn't much to fault the app for. It does the job of saving any articles you need to read for later and using it smooth and straightforward.
If you've never used Pocket before or don't know what it's about. It's basically a way for you save links or articles to read later. For those times you find an interesting post but don't have time to read it all through. It does come in very handy.
To use ReadItNow, you'll need a Pocket account. You can sign up online to do this. Once you have an account, you're ready to go. ReadItNow is available from BlackBerry World for $1.99/£1.50. It is available for the Z10, Q10, Q5 and PlayBook.
