Nate said in his post that its hard for people to pay for something they don’t understand or see the value in.

The Value for me, is that Pocket is a time saver, and stops me procrastinating which is so easy to do when you are working online.

Pocket is a mobile and computer application that enables you to save articles, videos or web pages to view later.  If you are like me, you are always stumbling across articles that you don’t have time to read right now.   This handy app not only saves these pages for you but also syncs it with your phone, tablet and computer so you can view it anywhere, even without an internet connection so you can catch up anywhere and anytime. Perfect!
