The folks behind the Pocket app are celebrating one year. To clarify, they are celebrating the one-year anniversary of when they changed the name from Read It Later to Pocket. Regardless of the specific anniversary though, it looks like those who are using Pocket on an Android device now have an update waiting for them. In addition to the app update, this celebration also comes with some interesting comments on sharing.
It seems Pocket users (across all platforms) are now sharing more than 35 million items per month. While that certainly sounds like a large number, the interesting part here is that sharing over email is used more often than sharing over social networks. According to the data from Pocket, users are sharing over email more than twice as often than they are on social networks. You can get an idea of that from the image sitting below, however email sharing is double that of Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr combined.
Of course, these details about sharing seem to connect with the new features. First up, this release of Pocket makes it easier to share content with friends using the Send to Friend option. Those on the receiving end of the share will see the shared items directly in Pocket. There is also a new share menu that will highlight your recent apps and friends.
Shifting away from the sharing aspect and there is still a few remaining goodies. Here we have a feature called Instant Sync which will sync across multiple devices as well as an auto full-screen mode that works in both the Article and Web View. Finally, last up was the unspecified, but always welcomed “bug fixes and improvements.” With that, those with Pocket already installed can grab the update using the Play Store on their device. All others, Pocket can be found using this Google Play Store link.

Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone line has always been primarily about diversity, variety and choice, but things are getting a bit out of hand lately. Not only is Sammy blurring the lines between mid-range and high-end and diluting the “Galaxy” brand in the process, but when it comes to entry-level devices everything is just too tangled to tell right from left.
If we are to trust SamMobile (and we usually do), a so-called Galaxy Pocket Neo is currently being worked on in Samsung’s labs and getting prepared for a mid-may release. Besides the baffling name, the little guy is to stir up quite some confusion, as it’s likely to be officially introduced close to a Galaxy Pocket Plus.
The Pocket Plus is rumored to carry the GT-S5301 model number, while the Neo is also known as the GT-S5310 or GT-S5312 (the latter for the dual-SIM version). Both phones are rehashes of last year’s Galaxy Pocket (aka S5300), which honestly is too much to take in for me.
But maybe you can easily tell the three apart based on their spec sheets, right? Only you can’t. The original Pocket came with a 2.8-inch 240 x 320 pix res screen, an 832 MHz ARM 11 CPU, a 2 MP cam and Android 2.3.
The Pocket Plus is said to pack an identical display, an 850 MHz Cortex A9-based processor and Android 4.0 ICS. Finally, the Pocket Neo is to come with a 3-inch 240 x 320 panel, the same pesky 2 MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. I really think my head is going to explode any minute now!
Thankfully, there is one scenario where Samsung is only mildly insane with all these ever so slightly different entry-level devices. And that is the Pocket Plus and Pocket Neo turn out to be the exact same phone. After all, the only differences we know of at this time are the on-board software, display size and model numbers, all of which could have been easily confused by the “sources in the know”. Please, oh please, let it be so!

One of the reasons why I keep my BlackBerry in a case (among many others) is because of the dreaded pocket dialing. You know that situtation, for some reason when your BlackBerry is in your bag, purse, or pocket and, unbeknownst to you, dials out to one of the many contacts on your list. The party on the other then happens to pick up and proceeds to listen to whatever conversation is currently in progress, which may not be for suitable for their ears because of content or background noise.
If that scenario sounds all too familiar then you are not alone. I’ve received plenty of calls from friends, family, and co-workers who didn’t realize they dialed my number or how I listened to the entire ruckus going on in the background.
