If you’re anything like me, you love Pocket — and find your overflowing stash of articles daunting. A new service, PocketRocket, will help you navigate the mess by sending you one article per day via email, then archiving it.

It’s easy to ignore the growing list of articles in your Pocket account. Leyland Jacob Elia, who created PocketRocket, says he is as guilty as any of us.

I made this because I developed a terrible habit of filling my Pocket with great articles and only coming back to binge read occasionally. With over 300 articles in my Pocket I was doomed. I wanted to find a way to cut down on my massive Pocket reading list without having to open the App everyday.

I figured I try to keep my email inbox at 0, so why not automate sending an article to my inbox and archiving it once a day.

To date I have been able read and archived 454 articles using PocketRocket.

This speaks to me in a big way; I love ‘inbox zero,’ and my Pocket is overflowing with developer articles about structs and classes (and other Swift-y stuff) I just haven’t made myself read yet.

To get started with PocketRocket, click the link below. Once you sign-in using your Pocket account, you simply choose what time of day you’d like to have articles emailed to you (and which email account you’d like them sent to), and away you go!
