Monika Jankowska-Pacyna – Putting things aside but remembering where they are…

June 29th, 2012 by Monika Jankowska-Pacyna

I started using Pocket when it was still known as ‘Read it later.’ As the name implied, it allowed me to save content and explore it at a time more convenient for me. It quickly became one of my favourite tools that I referred to on a regular basis. 

Since I manage AlphaPlus’ website and social media tools, I come across interesting news, updates, links, announcements, documents, videos and other content on a daily basis. With other projects, meetings and assignments, I often don’t have time to read and explore this wealth of information on the spot and that’s when Pocket becomes handy.

First of all it is super easy to use – I just opened a free account, got my own Dropbox and now I use it to store files, documents, images, and videos. Best of all I can access them from anywhere, share them with friends and colleagues, and I can sync them on all my mobile devices.
