Apple’s Upcoming ‘Reading List’ for Safari to Compete with Instapaper and ReadItLater

Posted on April 30, 2011 by

Mac Rumors discovered a new feature for Safari in Mac OS X Lion that will give users a different kind of bookmarking functionality. Apple calls this new feature “Reading List” and lets users save pages for later reading. Apple describes the new feature like this:

Reading List lets you collect webpages and links for you to read later. To add the current page to your Reading List, click Add Page. You can also Shift-click a link to quickly add it to the list. To hide and show Reading List, click the Reading List icon (eyeglasses) in the bookmarks bar.

Reading List is currently inactive and hidden within the latest Mac OS X Lion builds. It sounds very similar to popular services like Instapaper and ReadItLater.
