Pocket, which was formerly known as “Read It Later”, is an app that allows you to save links you find across the internet and store them conveniently for you to view at your leisure. Pocket is great if you’re searching through Twitter on your phone and come across an interesting article, or at work and find a site you would like to dive into more when you get home, or simply just don’t have the time to read something right now, but would like to later. All of your links are stored and synced across Pocket which you can access through the app on your browser or ios and android devices. Pocket can even strip the content down to its bare essential for a more focused reading experience or display the full article in all its glory. With its clean design, third-party support, and outstanding performance Pocket is the best solution to save content for future viewing.
Apple has had a problem with porn since the beginning of its decent into the mobile app world. The Apple App store being a curated experience to keep quality up, even though it is still filled with tons of crapps (see what I did there?), has taken a strong stance against pornographic material.

In recent, Apple has removed the 500px app, a popular photo sharing service much like a flickr, because it was “too easy” to find nudes. Then shit got real when new Twitter app “Vine” dropped becoming very popular very fast and also allowing hashtags such as #porn, #dildo, #sex, and many more fun topics to be searched for and a slew of results would flood in. I was lucky enough to experience the app before the crack down began, I noticed popular topics being pulled from the search results, users disappearing, and finally it became very difficult to find any X rated material. A sad day for the app world if you ask me.
I am a huge fan of services like Twitter and Tumblr because I can follow all sorts of crazy things, I dislike services like Facebook and even Instagram for censoring content, even going to extremes of not allowing members to send pornographic materials through their message system. Now I am not saying porn should be everywhere and we do need to protect the youth, But if I an adult who was able to create an App Store account (pretty sure you need a credit card to do that) I should be allowed to use apps that may contain adult content.
Short of it all, screw censorship. What are your thoughts?

That is what Cesar Kuriyama, the creator of the popular “1 Second Everyday” video, has proposed in an app he has in development. The concept is simple, with the increase of cell phones that have HD capabilities it doesn’t take much to capture a few moments from everyday, then string them together in an editing program. The app would simplify it even further by allowing you to select which day to edit, then easily select a one second clip from video clips you shot that day. It seems like the app has already been created for the iPhone and just needs a push from the help of Kickstarter to get it out and would then begin development for an Android version.
