Introducing Pocket for Mac


Pocket’s mission is to make it easier for you to save and enjoy the content you love, no matter where you are.

Today we’re thrilled to introduce a brand new app on our next supported platform: Pocket for Mac.

We brought everything you love about our iOS and Android apps—offline access, distraction-free reading, streaming video, and more—into a beautiful app that is optimized for Mac.

Inside Pocket for Mac


Pocket for the Mac includes all the features you’d expect from a native Pocket experience, plus some new ones just for Mac:

  • Fast, seamless syncing across all devices
  • Keyboard shortcuts for key actions
  • Tweet attributions for any items saved from Twitter
  • The ability to share to Twitter, Facebook, Buffer, Evernote and email
  • Easy organizing and super fast search features
  • New ways to save from your clipboard and via drag and drop

Community Powered

To create the new Mac app, we tapped into Pocket’s developer community. Michael Schneider, the creator of the popular third-party Mac app Read Later, joined Pocket to help us create this official Mac version of Pocket. If you’re an existing Read Later Mac App user you can upgrade for the full Pocket experience here.

If you’re an Instapaper user, have no fear, the existing version of Read Later will continue to work. However, there will be no future updates. If you are searching for an actively developed client, here are a few recommendations for you.

We’re thrilled to bring Pocket to your Mac. And, as always, you can reach out to us at Pocket Support with questions or feedback.

Thanks for your continued support!
