Pocket is one of our favorite services out there. It allows you to save web pages or articles to your Pocket queue. After saving it an article to Pocket you can read it on any Pocket app you want across all your devices. Windows Phone doesn’t have an official Pocket app yet, but we do have stellar third-party options. Pouch is one of those options and it was just updated, let’s check out what’s new in this latest version.
The last update for Pouch we covered happened in late-August. It was notable for bringing a new UI, theme color options, improving performance, new Lock screen settings, and much more. There’s a new version of Pouch (v2.3.2) rolling out in the Windows Phone Store that will feature the following:
- Fixed some issues with certain articles causing Pouch to crash
- Added support for PocketWP, a standardized Pocket URI scheme
- Themes (Black, Dark, and Light) now persist throughout the entire app. (Instead of just the reading page as in the last version)
- Fixed problems with poor internet connections
- Added new article-reading Uri scheme
- Better offline performance
- Better loading performance
- Changed reading page UI
- Bug fixes
We’re not seeing the update yet and you might not either. The Windows Phone Store appears to be moving a little slow today, but do check for v2.3.2 of Pouch throughout the day. When we do get the update we’ll be pretty excited to try out the new themes and look forward to improvements in both offline and loading performance.
Look for the new version of Pouch in the Windows Phone Store today. It has a trial that lets you use the app ten times, after that you’ll need to buy it for $0.99. Don’t forget you can use the QR code below or swipe to the right in our app to get it.
