App Of The Month (November 2015)

This was a tough call. Here were all the apps in contention:

  • Amazon Music
  • Feedly
  • Yahoo News Digest
  • What’s Ap
  • Pocketcasts
  • Pocket

Drum Roll Please. And the winner again is Pocket. Simply stated Pocket saves your favorite web sites and app picks to a cross platform database. I pick up Pocket favorites on my phone, ipad and computer or anybody elses computer if I sign in to my Pocket account.

I did a video screencast in May on Pocket

Pocket is even better because everyday they send you sites via email that you might be interested in saving and they also supply these recommendations on their app. Run, don’t walk and get Pocket

Pocket – App Of The Month

App Of The Month is a new feature to CTL.  Pocket, this month’s app is one that I use everyday.  Pocket is an app and web extension that runs on Android, IOS and Chrome. Pocket saves web pages and articles for later retrieval using another device.

For example, I can save the webpage below to Pocket by simply clicking on the Pocket Chrome Extender that I installed on my Chrome Browser.
