We’ve all been guilty of procrastinating when we should have been working, studying or doing anything remotely more productive.
Normally, the cause of this procrastination is online sources.
Whether it’s an article or video that’s got you surfing through links at a rate of knots, there is a way to help keep yourself productive as you browse on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
Known as the ‘Reading List’ this in-built Safari functionality allows you to bookmark articles your about to spend fifteen minutes browsing, bookmark them and then return to them later when you’re actually free; not just procrastinating.
The best part? The Reading List will sync itself to iCloud so you can catch up on your bookmarked articles from whichever device suits you.
Whether it’s reading a particularly engaging article via your iPhone during the morning commute or using your iPad to find that delicious looking recipe you spotted whilst at work, the Reading List feature will help you stay productive. Here’s how to access and use it:
How to Access the ‘Reading List’
- Open Safari –> Click on the Bookmarks icon -> Click this icon à Welcome to the Reading List –> Click the article you would like to read and procrastinate away!
But there’s not much point accessing your Reading List before there’s anything to read within it. So here’s how to add articles to your Reading List:
How to Add Articles
- Open Safari –> Browse for the article you wish to add –> Click on the ‘Share’ Button –> Click ‘Add to Reading List’
Hopefully, the Reading List will help you stay productive when you need to and save you time searching for that article you were ‘meant to read later’ during your downtime.
