In the world of offline reading services, few come close to the style and ease of use you get with Pocket. This app has stayed consistently at the forefront of Android design, and now it's getting an update to v5.7 with a new Lollipop vibe. You might not have the update yet, but it's rolling out.

This isn't a complete rethink of the way Pocket looks, but it's definitely ready for Android 5.0. The navigation menu has been revamped to look correct in 5.0, and the icons are updated as well. Throughout the app you'll see those distinctive material animations too. The status bar is flat gray in Pocket, rather than black, but you get a nice red hero color in the multitasking menu.

Pocket's updated look goes to show you that not everything designed for Android 5.0 has to look like Google's apps. The new version fits in with the aesthetic but keeps a distinctive feel.
