I bought my iPad 2 about 3 weeks ago. I am not an 'i' person in general, my desktop and laptop are PCs, one running mainly IE, the other Firefox. I do have an iPod, so I am somewhat familiar with iTunes.
Anyway, after reading a lot of reviews, I decided that Instapaper was the app for me - I love the idea of scooping up stuff to read later, offline. So I loaded it and at first, found a few articles I liked, but only could get them INTO Instapaper by cutting and pasting the URL directly into Instapaper (IP after this, I'm getting tired of typing it!).
So I followed the lengthy, cryptic instructions (beginning with 'you have to do this in portrait, landscape won't word) and it worked okay until the very end. Here's what I did:
First I added Instapaper to my bookmarks.
Then I copied a box of what looked like HTML text and SAVED IT.
Then I tapped edit and selected IP.
Then I tapped it's URL, tapped the X to clear it.
Then I pasted the saved text.
So far so good.
But the next instruction was to SAVE it - the illustration showed a SAVE button at the top of the bookmarks box- but I didn't have a SAVE button that showed. So it wouldn't save.
And I didn't get a Read it later button on the toolbar in Safari, which is what I wanted.
Any ideas? Maybe the problem is I don't really know Safari or how bookmarks work in Safari. Thanks in advance for any help.
