Pocket changed its name from Read it Later one year ago today, and the company is celebrating its first anniversary with an update that brings a new sharing feature to the app.

Pocket's latest version has a completely redesigned Share menu that includes a "Send to Friend" feature. This option lets you share content directly within the app using just a few taps. You can add a comment or include a highlighted quote from the article in a message that will be sent out to your friends or family. The recipient(s) will receive an email with a link to your content and a notification within Pocket if they have the app installed on their device. Also part of this new feature is an inbox that stores content that is shared with you.

Pocket also announced today that its users save more than 35 million items per month, and its network of developers and publishers has grown to almost 12,000.

Pocket is available for free from the iOS App Store and the Mac App Store.
