I like the features of Safari in iOS 8. In a previous tip I showed how to request the desktop version of a site by tapping in the address bar and then dragging down on the Favorites window that pops up. I also just learned of a quick way to add the current page to Favorites, to your reading list, or to shared links.

To quickly add a page to Favorites, tap and hold the Bookmark button at top left on your iPad or bottom right on your iPhone.

 

Doing so pops up a menu with three options: Add Bookmark, Add to Reading List, and Add to Shared Links.

 

Tap Add Bookmark, and a new window pops up to let you specify the location Favorites. Tap Save at the top right, and the page is added to your Favorites.
