Refind + Pocket

Refind and Pocket are complementary. In fact, we (= makers of Refind) use both in combination. Here’s how we see and use the two.


We see Pocket as a reading list. When we discover an article we intend to read soon, but don’t have the time right now, we save it to Pocket. Pocket supports this use case really well: it downloads the content for offline access and makes it nice to read by cleaning up cluttered pages.


Refind is a personal (public) archive of all the links you want to keep. It’s not a reading list — it’s fire and forget — with powerful search and discovery. (If you don’t know Refind yet, read why we’re building it.)

We try to illustrate our flow here

Connect Pocket to Refind

Sometimes you want to hold on to Pocket links for later. Refind makes it easy to separate saves from your reading list.

  • Optionally, you can also let Refind auto-import your favorites (in Pocket Inbox or Archive).
  • Optionally, you can also let Refind auto-import links you tag withrefind” in Pocket Inbox or Archive.
