Gnome offers the option to add a pocket account in it's online accounts. But I am totally lost and unable to understand how to use this feature. Where are my saved pages? How does the gnome online pocket account help? Where are my saved pages synced? And how are they synced? And where do they end up? There is no guide and zero information online. I know for instance what you can do with a google account or an owncloud account in gnome, but totally lost with the pocket account. Can someone enlighten me on this?

Basically as I can see by looking at GNOME help this option is useless at the moment :-)

After logging in to Pocket it gives you to sync "Read Later". Under "Online services and applications" help page there is the following explanation:

Read Later - The Read Later service allows you to save a web page to an external services so that you can read it later on another device. No applications currently use this service.

So basically yeah, it is useless but it would be nice if it intergrated to lets say Gnome web browser (Epiphany) or some other applications.

Hi, thanks for the answer, where did you find the section about pocket in gnome help? I have been unable to find it.

Open up GNOME Help, click on search, and search for "Read Later" (which is the action pocket intergration only supports for now). Under search results you should see "Online services and applications", click on that. :-)
