Pocket is a pretty smart concept encapsulated in a simple app. To explore this app, you have to download the app, you can simply tap the direct download link given below to get this app:

Launch the app and register using your E-mail or Google+ account. Suppose you want to read an article about Allo.

You can easily save the complete article in your Pocket, including the media that are on the page like pictures and sometimes the videos. Let me clear things for you, Pocket allows you to save videos for offline viewing sometimes, and that’s because most of the sites like YouTube, etc., don’t allow the app to download the videos for offline viewing because this practice violates their “Terms of Use”.

Pocket allow you to save an article (or video) even if you can’t find the URL by simply tapping on the share option and choosing “Add to Pocket”.
