Pocket for iOS, Android v6.0 Adds Recommendations
Pocket v6.0 for Android and iOS adds a new recommendation tab to the app (it’s also available on the website). In that tab you’ll find a culling of the best stories saved to the service, which Pocket says has been personalized to match each user’s reading habits.
The recommendations show up as a title plus image, and can be saved to your reading list. They’re only available in English at this time, but Pocket plans to expand support to include other languages in the future.
From what I am reading on Twitter, the recommendations are somewhat better than what Instapaper offers through its Browse menu. Given that Instapaper has never suggested terribly interesting articles to me, that would not be difficult.
