When I first heard about Pocket, I thought I understood what it was. “It’s an alternative to Evernote,” I thought.
But when I looked at what Pocket was offering, I got a little confused. Pocket includes ‘Evernote integration’. So I thought “Pocket must do something that Evernote doesn’t, and vice versa.” Surely you wouldn’t build integration with a competitor into your product?
Why would you save an article to Pocket, only to send it to Evernote? Surely you would use one or the other, but not both?
But after downloading Pocket, and a little light surfing to try and establish how Pocket and Evernote work together, I’m stumped as to why you would want to use both. Why would you save an article to Pocket, only to send it to Evernote? Surely you would use one or the other, but not both?
The only sniff of a guess I can make is that you can use Pocket to capture pages from iOS devices more easily than with Evernote (which requires a bookmarklet). But that doesn’t feel particularly compelling.
Can anyone shed any light on what I’m missing?
