Bookmarking app Pocket is looking to cut out copy and pasting with a new iMessage app.

Pocket, which was acquired by Mozilla last month, allows you to save online content, like articles to read later, in its app. It uses a browser extension, so articles are saved with just the click of a button. With the new iMessage app, they can be shared just as easily.

The app lets you share links saved in Pocket with friends without having to copy and paste the URL. The article will load with a title and preview image and have the option of adding a message.

To get started, iOS users will need to download the Pocket app, and then enable it within the iMessage App Store. Once set up, you can browse through your recently saved items in Pocket or search for older content.

Thursday’s announcement is Pocket’s first major update since being acquired by Mozilla at the end of February. At the time, Pocket CEO Nate Weiner said in a blog post that the acquisition will help the app expand its reach and build better product.

“They’re adding fuel to our rocketship,” he wrote.
