Read later for iOS

I was looking for a way to get the "read later" bookmarklet from Instapaper to work on my iPad because I like that one better than the built-in "reading list".

There's an easy fix to do this, but unfortunately it won't work for Safari since it doesn't let you edit the URL of the bookmark.

Now, because I use Chrome as the default browser on my iPad, I was able to add the "read later" bookmarklet without problems.
I listed the instructions below, but you can also check the entire article here (it also includes a lot of other sharing options to add to your browser).


1. Add the current page you're visiting as a bookmark
2. Edit the name of the bookmark to anything you like (e.g. Read later)
3. Replace the URL of the bookmark with the following line of code:

javascript:function iprl5(){var d=document,z=d.createElement('scr'+'ipt'),b=d.body;try{if(!b)throw(0);d.title='(Saving...) '+d.title;z.setAttribute('src',''+encodeURIComponent(d.location.href)+'&t='+(new Date().getTime()));b.appendChild(z);}catch(e){alert('Please wait until the page has loaded.');}}iprl5();void(0)

4. Save the bookmark, and you're done
