Around here we’ve recently been using apps like Pocket more frequently than before. Pocket is a service that lets you save articles to read at a later time, just like Instapaper and Readability. Peregrine supports all three of those read later services, you just need to navigate to the settings and log in. After that anytime you see a link in a tweet you might be interested in reading later you just need to long press it and mark it for later. It’s a feature that is really handy when you’re power browsing your Twitter feed and come across a dozen links that look really interesting.

In addition you can now view videos from Vine and Instagram within the app.
