Pocket offers publishers 'save for later' tools

Pocket, an application that lets readers save articles to read later, rolled out a suite of tools for publishers Tuesday morning. Like Amazon did with its "Send to Kindle" button recently, Pocket is giving publishers a "Save to Pocket" button, as well as a dashboard to track how readers are saving and reading stories.

The new tools will also work with paywalls and within publishers' apps, says Pocket (formerly Read it Later). They're free.

The Verge, BuzzFeed, New York Review of Books and USA Today are among the publishers on board.
