#5. Pocket

The Internet is a deep, black hole. We are constantly consuming on our phone but we don’t always have time to consume everything we want. This is where Pocket comes in.

The app downloads your links so you’re able to get back to learning anywhere and at any time. Stay up to date on the news, or whatever else you want to consume while you’re on your phone.
