Using Safari Reading List

The Safari Reading List on Mac, iPhone and iPad is a better way to save a web page to read later than bookmarking. The page will be added to the left sidebar where you can easily return to it. Items sync across your devices using iCloud and you can also save them to read even when you are offline.

    Thanks for the reminder to use this feature especially the little + sign in the address bar. Forgive the off-topic question but what is that white strip device at the base of the monitor visible in many of your videos?

    Robert: An LED light strip. I use it to illuminate my face (under the bill of my cap) when shooting from the other direction.

    My wife and I share an iCloud account and we use the reading list to share articles with each other.

    Gary, I do use the Reading List on a regular basis. Have not yet found a way to organize the entries, but I can at least filter the listings by using the search window at the top of the listings, e.g. entering PHOTOS will only display entries relating to photos. Are you aware of any app that will organize the list content, e.g. into folders? POCKET was suggested but thus far have been unsuccessful. Any thoughts? Thanks…H

    Hal: There’s no organization like that. I guess the idea is they are only there for a short time anyway. If you need something more permanent, use bookmarks.

    I find managing the reading list is a real pain and it seems to take up a lot of storage which surprises me as I would think all they are saving is the link to the page but that doesn’t seem to be the case?

    Ed: Where do you see it takes up a lot of storage space? If you have it set to save offline, then naturally it will save text and images. But otherwise it is just a link and thumbnail. Either way, not much space.
