Add content! Add the Publish it! bookmarklet to Safari mobile

The "Publish it!" bookmarklet is a great way to add your favorite content - from anywhere on the web - to your paper.    Add content to your paper while on the go, straight from your mobile phone, by using the bookmarklet!


Once the bookmarklet is added to your bookmarks, you can add images, videos or an article to your paper.  But how do you install the bookmarklet on your mobile phone?  The "how to" is slightly different from adding it to your bookmarks bar on a desktop computer.

 If you've set up your bookmarks to synch on iCloud, then assuming you've already installed the bookmarklet on your home computer, you already have the bookmarklet installed!  It should be found in your Bookmarks Bar folder in your Safari's bookmarks.

When you're reading an article on your mobile phone that you'd like to add to your paper, click on the bookmarklet bookmark found in your Bookmarks Bar folder to activate the familiar bookmarklet overlay.


Go to the Bookmarks Bar folder in your Safari bookmarks
