Pocket has updated its read-later app for iOS 9 with a couple of useful new features, including picture-in-picture support on iPad.

The latest version lets you watch videos you’ve saved to your account in a small window that floats above other apps on your iPad. It’s handy for doing things like watching a cooking technique and looking up a related recipe at the same time.
