Pocket for Android, iOS Updated

Pocket pocket logocontinued their international push today with a couple app updates. They’ve released new versions of their apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad, adding support for additional languages.

Both apps now offer an interface which has been translated into Chinese, Dutch, Korean, Polish, and Portuguese. This is the second batch of languages to be added to the app, bringing the total number of supported languages to 12. (French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, and Russian were added in late March.)

Aside from new language support, the iPad and iPhone app only gained a single tweak (improved detection of copied links), but the Android app gained several features.

Pocket for Android now supports the immersive reading mode offered in Android 4.4 KitKat, and it can also hide the status bar on any Android devices running 4.1 Jelly Bean and up.  The typography and layout has also been tweaked to h ensure that headers, images and paragraphs all flow together seamlessly – even after a reader has changed the font size.

You can find the app in Google Play and iTunes.
