Owl Reader is a feature-rich client and offline reader for Pocket (Read It Later). It allows you to connect to your Pocket account, browse the list of articles you have stored there, and read the articles in a comfortable mobile view directly on your phone. It also allows management of stored articles - adding new links, deleting old ones, tagging articles or marking them as read or favorite.

Owl Reader downloads articles with images for offline reading. It also allows you to browse and edit your Pocket article list even when you are currently offline. This includes operations like archiving, favoriting, deleting, tagging, or even adding new links to the list. All changes made offline are uploaded upon next online synchronization. This makes Own Reader perfect for reading articles from the web while travelling by underground, airplane, or through areas with poor signal.

Note that you need to have a (free) Pocket account in order to use the application. You can get one here: http://getpocket.com/signup

    Personally, I prefer Poki's slightly higher level of polish, but nevertheless this is a fantastic, full-featured Pocket client. I like the text and color customization options in particular.
