Pocket improves Dark Theme, adds Page Flipping

Updated

Pocket has released a minor update to its iOS offline reading app adding several improvements and refinements to the major 4.0 release from earlier this year. Pocket 4.1 now supports the Dark Theme throughout the app rather than merely in the article view and adds a new Sepia theme with a focus on contrast and readability; the maximum font size has also been increased in the article view. Users can also now swipe left or right to enable a books-style Page Fipping view instead of scrolling through articles. The latest version now also automatically detects URLs found on the clipboard when opening the app and offers to add them to Pocket and provides support for additional video sides including TED and Devour. Pocket 4.1 is available from the App Store as a free download.
