PocketRocket emails you one story a day so you’ll actually read it

PocketRocket was born to help you peer pressure yourself into being productive about your reading, and it works.



Getting yourself to actually read. Bingo!

While bookmarking apps like Pocket are designed to help us from getting overwhelmed by the deluge of information available on the web, they sometimes become just another crowded folder to be ignored. Enter PocketRocket, a service designed by Jacob Elia to aid Pocket users in reading more of their many saved articles.

The premise is simple: many of us save Pocket articles for perusal later but fail to incorporate actually reading on Pocket into our routine, so why not tie reading and archiving Pocket articles into an area where we are already active? PocketRocket is meant to tie into the “inbox zero” philosophy of keeping your email inbox at zero new messages by pushing a single article from Pocket to your email inbox each day, helping you to clear that backlog of articles.

Cut the clutter from your reading life

Elia was inspired to create the service when he noticed his Pocket had over 300 articles in it, a number I’m sure many of us can rival. With so much information available on the internet-and more arriving each second- this tendency to hoard data can be easy to succumb to, which is why being able to focus our attention is critical.

Pocket works fantastically well at cutting the clutter from web articles and other interesting content and packaging it in an easy-to-read format. PocketRocket allows you to retain that convenience but takes it one step further, delivering articles to where you’re sure to see and read them.

Think of it is a sort of digital daily newspaper delivery, but on your schedule. You can choose whichever time of day to have PocketRocket deliver an article to your inbox. Maybe you clear emails over morning coffee or in the afternoon as a break from work, but let PocketRocket become part of that routine help you consume your content more efficiently.
