Pocket update adds background sync, makes articles easier to read

Pocket can now automatically sync your articles in the background

The release of iOS 7 may be dominating the air waves right now, but it's not the only bit of software news that iOS users should be excited about.

On Wednesday, Pocket rolled out a sizable update to its iOS app of the same name. The update includes some minor design changes, but it also adds several tools and options to make your mobile reading experience even better.

Text can now be aligned so it doesn't appear scattered all over the screen (like it did in previous versions of the app), and you can have Pocket automatically sync your articles in the background so you always have your content with you. The ability to automatically sync your articles will be limited to devices running iOS 7, but it's a massive improvement over the old system where Pocket only synced when you opened it.

Pocket is available for free from the App Store and you can check out Macworld's review if you want to know more about the app.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
