Pocket, the popular read it later app has just added a feature that almost every e-reader app has offered in the last decade, highlights. Simply long-press on any text in Pocket to start your selection, and then expand to include the entire word, phrase, or section that you’d like to highlight. Then, tap the Highlight button.
Highlighting in Pocket has two tiers: Free and Premium. All Pocket users will be able to create 3 highlights per article, and those who subscribe to Pocket Premium will be able to create an unlimited number of highlights.
The highlight system is only available for Android right now and Pocket has proclaimed that they will push out the feature to IOS sometime in the next week or two. You can download Pocket from the Good e-Reader App Store.
