Pocket for iOS Updated to Version 4.1 – Coming to Android

A few weeks ago the popular Read It Later app was renamed to Pocket. The company behind it has now released a new update for iOS bringing it up to version 4.1. Several new features include a page flipping mode which allows you to flip forwards or backwards through pages. Also, new themes have been added to make reading a little easier such as Sepia and a dark theme.

The full list is below:

Article View updates:
Page Flipping mode: In addition to Pocket’s default scrolling option, you can now swipe left or right inside an article to enable Page Flipping and read one page at a time.
Improved Dark theme and an all-new Sepia theme: We’ve made improvements to the Dark theme, and we’ve also added Sepia. With refined contrast and readability, these options make reading even more comfortable.
Increased maximum font size: For those who prefer larger print, we’ve expanded Pocket’s font-size options so you can find the perfect fit for reading.

Dark theme now runs throughout the app: Use Pocket comfortably at night, whether you’re in the Article View or browsing through your saved content.
Add URLs from your clipboard: We’re making it even easier to save something for later: Pocket now automatically detects URLs that are copied to the clipboard so they can be added directly to Pocket.
Support for additional video sites: Pocket’s in-app video streaming now supports popular sites including TED, Devour and Khan Academy.

Fixed a case where items in the list would become untappable.
Fixed a case where only part of a user’s list would load.
Fixed a number of crashes at start-up and during usage.

There’s also some talk of an Android version that will be launching in the next few days. This version will also be made available for the Amazon Kindle Fire if the promise is kept.

The update is available through iTunes (App store) or via the app store on your iOS device.
