Viewing bookmarks in Yummy

Yesterday we linked Yummy to your Delicious.com account and downloaded your bookmarks. Today we’ll look at what you can do next.

When you first start Yummy, the opening screen looks something like this:

If you have added more bookmarks since you last opened Yummy they will appear shortly. How soon will depend on how fast your connection to the Internet is.

You can flick up and down the list much as you do in any other iPhone application. Selecting a link drills down to the details.

If there’s an old bookmark that you want to find, the easiest way to find it is to search for a tag that you might have used to categorise it. Press the magnifying glass icon and select “By Tags.”

Enter the tag or tags that you’re looking for and press “Search.” If you enter more than one it will only list bookmarks that have all the tags you specify. You can switch back to the date view by pressing “Search” again and selecting “By Date.”

Come back tomorrow to learn more about adding links.

Getting Started with Yummy

So you’ve just downloaded Yummy from the App Store (thank you), what next?

Perhaps slightly counter-intuitively, your first step should be to look in the “Settings” screen.

Enter your Delicious.com username and password. You might also want to think whether newly added posts should default to be public or private.

And return to the home screen.

When you start Yummy for the first time it will download all your bookmarks. If you have a lot of links you might prefer to use a WiFi connection though it should work just fine on EDGE or 3G.

When complete it will display your bookmarks in reverse chronological order.

Come back tomorrow to see how you can view your links.
