One of Yummy’s most useful and unique features is the ability to add new bookmarks to Delicious. A bookmarklet in Safari makes this even easier to use, but there is a price: it’s tricky to add this bookmark on the iPhone.
I’ve love to be able to make this whole process easy, a one click process, but the ball is in Apple’s court on this one. Craig Hockenberry of IconFactory wrote about this (“Difficult for users to take advantage of URL schemes in Safari“) and I wholeheartedly agree.
However, for the moment we are all stuck with what Apple has provided. So, I have a question for you: can you think of a better way of doing this?
The two approaches that I am aware of are:
- The way Yummy does it. Add the bookmark to Safari or Internet Explorer and sync the iPhone.
- The way Twitterrific does it. Add a bookmark using MobileSafari and manually edit it.
Do you find the Twitterrific way significantly better than Yummy’s?
