Send an RSS item from ReadKit to Safari's Reading List Apps
ReadKit ( is an RSS reader that synchronizes with multiple RSS services. It supports sending articles to read-later services such as Instapaper, Readability and Pocket. However, out of the box there is no way to send an article to Safari's Reading List (aside from manually copy-and-pasting the URL into Safari).

Reading List (RL) is very handy if you have multiple iOS devices, since articles in RL are automatically synchronized and downloaded on each devices. Below, I will describe a simple service that import the currently selected article in ReadKit into RL.

  • Open Automator and create a new Service. Call the Service "Add to Reading List"
  • Select Service receives: "no input"
  • Click on the next drop-down box, select "Other..." and find ReadKit in the Applications folder
  • On the left-hand side sidebar, select "Utilities" and then double-click the action "Run AppleScript"
  • Copy and paste the content of this script into the window
  • Save the service and quit Automator.
  • To add a keyboard shortcut, go to System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts and select "Services"
  • Find the "Add to Reading List" service and add your preferred shortcut.

This hint no longer works. The "Copy Link" item has been moved to the Sharing menu, but there is some issue with the ability for AppleScript to invoke that item. Using UIBrowser it shows "[MISMATCH-different parent]" as opposed to "menu (menu1)". The AppleScript it generates is busted because of this:

click menu item "Copy Link" of UNKNOWN UI ELEMENT of menu bar item "Sharing" of menu bar 1
