Pocket and Matter Announce Partnership

The content saving platform Pocket (formerly Read It Later) has announced its first publisher partnership with Matter. Those who subscribe to the Kickstarter funded journalism startup will now be able to access its content directly within the Pocket app. It’s a fitting partnership, since Matter does not have an app of its own. Co-founder Bobbie Johnson told The Next Web that they are not pursuing it because “We had raised money from people through Kickstarter to commission journalism, and wanted to use as much of our budget for that as possible: developing an app would have eaten up a vast chunk of our resources.”

Matter published its first piece of longform journalism last month, and you can get it for $0.99 here.
