Pocket Update 4.1 Adds Page Flips

The Android version of the Pocket reading app got an update earlier this week and it’s definitely worth a new look. In addition to bug fixes, subtle tweaks, and improvements to a couple reading themes, the app now supports faux page turns.

I don’t care for them myself, but a lot of readers value the feature. When Instapaper added this in an update a week or so back, it got a lot of attention. It seems that readers want to recreate the experience of reading in a paper book.

The update also adds a larger font size as well as new support additional video sites, including TED, Khan Academy and Devour. You can find the app on Google Play.
