What is the difference between Bookmarks and Reading List in Safari?

When you add a page to your Reading List, Safari temporarily bookmarks the page and also makes it accessible offline. Unlike Bookmarks which are meant to be kept indefinitely, the Reading List is meant for pages you’d like to read but can then either bookmark properly or just discard.

Can you organize Safari reading list?

Long story short: Nope, you can’t organize the articles on the iOS Reading List, but Instapaper and Pocket (among other iOS reading apps) will do the trick.

Is Instapaper worth?

For most users, it’s a good idea to use the free version of Instapaper as long as you can until you bump into a limitation that justifies paying. You might not need to at all. For comparison, Pocket lets free users save unlimited articles and videos, read offline, sync across devices, and create and browse tags.
