So you can save PDF's to Pocket!


I have been using Pocket (formerly "Read it Later" as my go to collecting app. If you are unfamiliar with Pocket, it acts as a vacuum cleaner, collecting all your web pages, documents and such that you want to read later is a wonderfully designed app. It is great for stripping away clutter from longer web pages you would like to read at a later date.

One of the challenges I have had is with PDF's. You can send PDF's to Pocket, however it is a little convoluted.

The caveats include:

  1. The PDF has to be hosted online.
  2. It may mangle images in the PDF.
  3. You need to go to this url and post the url of the PDF.

So much for a week...
