Alternate way to add bookmarks

I am aware that a number of users find the process of adding the “Add to Yummy” bookmarklet to Safari to be harder than it should be. As I discussed last week, this is not something that I can make a lot simpler — you’ll have to ask Apple to help me there.

But if adding the bookmarklet in Safari or Internet Explorer on your PC and syncing your iPhone is not something that appeals, try this:

Click this link:

Add to Yummy

(It should redirect you back to this page.)

Then add it to Safari using the “+” button at the bottom of the screen and press “Add Bookmark.”

You can change the name of the bookmark if you like, then click ‘Save.’

Now click the bookmarks button. Locate your new bookmark, press the “Edit” button at the bottom of the screen and select the new bookmark.

You must change the URL itself. You need to delete everything before (and including) the first question mark, making the first word “javascript”. When you’re done, the screen should look something like this:

And with that you’re good to go.

    Thank you so much for posting this version as the syncing bookmark way was too confusing for me! Twitterific use the same method to post from Safari and I wondered if it would work for Yummy too! I'm so glad I forked out for the paid app btw, its great! 5 stars!
