Pocket for Android now supports Jelly Bean devices, more reason to love your Nexus 7

While end-users are clamoring over Jelly Bean, developers are busy making their apps compatible with Android’s latest software iteration. The payoff should be worthwhile, given how in-demand the Nexus 7 tablet is; and to a certain extent the Galaxy Nexus is also seeing a surge of interest amongst customers. These are two devices that officially run Jelly Bean. One app that has just received Jelly Bean’s seal of compatibility is Pocket for Android – previously known as Read It Later.

Pocket 4.1.2 can now be downloaded on Google Play Store. Along with Android 4.1 support, it also comes with a slew of bug fixes. The developer of the app has provided the following change log:
White flash/flicker when opening an article in the Dark ThemeTile View not adjusting to rotation properly on tabletsText selection issues in Jelly BeanLong pressing a list item in Jelly Bean opened the article instead of showing actionsA crash when cancelling sharingPNG image files were not downloading for offline useTag button no longer has jagged edges on some devicesOther minor issues and crashes
For the uninitiated, Pocket collates any article links and videos you come across on your browser and over 300-third party Android and iOS apps for later viewing in a visually pleasing layout – even when you go offline.  Check out Pocket on Google Play to find out why the free app has been dubbed as the “DVR for the Web”.
