Pocket is primarily a bookmarking tool. It is also where users save more than 2 million videos each week. Beginning today, Jan. 22, Pocket is making it easy for users to view those videos on a larger screen. The latest version of Pocket includes support for Apple’s AirPlay. As a result, and with the help of Apple TV, you can now watch all of the videos you’ve saved to Pocket on your television. Better still, your videos will keep playing even when you exit the Pocket app. This is great for those multi-taskers who want to check their email, Twitter feed, and more. To stream videos from Pocket, be sure to download the free 5.0.2 update. From your iPhone or iPad, select a video from Pocket to watch, then tap on the AirPlay button in the embedded video player. Select “Apple TV” from the menu and you’re set. Need some video inspiration? Pocket suggests checking out Vimeo’s Staff Picks, Devour, and the mini-documentaries from Dark Rye. They are also sharing great suggestions @PocketHits. The universal Pocket app is available to download in the App Store.
