Pocket App Doubles User Base In One Year

The content saving platform Pocket announced in a blog post today that the number of people using its service has doubled in the past year and that the app registered 240 million saves in 2012. (That’s more saves than the past four years combined.) The post also revealed some interesting stats: About 10 items are saved to the app per second, and 80 percent of opens occur after the first 4 days of saving something. As for the most popular content, three of the most-saved articles of the year had Wired writer Mat Honan’s byline, while the most-saved article was Michael Lewis’ Obama profile in Vanity Fair. Unsurprisingly, the most saved video was Gangnam Style. Hit the jump to see what stories people saved the most:
