Use one bookmark to load different versions of a site
Authored by: OverZealous on Mar 10, '10 01:55:56PM

This reminds me why I really hate the way Apple chose to manage the bookmarks on the iPhone / iPod Touch. It just doesn't make sense to have the same bookmark sets for both mobile and desktop devices.

Not only the issue described above, but I have hundreds of bookmarks in my browser, but probably only about 20-30 I use on my mobile device. I don't really need every little flash-based game, random document, etc, on my device.

Thankfully, I use Firefox as my desktop browser, so Safari is just where I track my iPod Touch bookmarks. But it's a huge deterrent for me if I ever wanted to switch. (At least when I was on Windows I could use IE to store the bookmarks, since it would have been/will be a cold day in Heck before I switched back to IE.)

Use one bookmark to load different versions of a site

I just added a bookmarks folder named "iPhone" in Safari's bookmark manager.

On the iPhone, I never navigate higher than that folder in the hierarchy; all my device bookmarks are organized in subfolders there.

On Safari, the folder only appears in the bookmark manager (neither in my bookmarks bar nor in my bookmarks menu).

The only time bookmarks from one device appear on the other during my regular workflow is when I'm manually entering a URL in the address bar: suggestions from my bookmarks appear below it, which is fine.
