  3. When you ad the bookmark why don't you paste the address in right then? Why do you close it, reopen it, then edit it. Seems like two steps that could be done in one?

  4. John - that's because Safari forces the bookmark creation to use the page address that you are on at the time the add bookmark button is clicked. You have to go back into it to replace the link.

  6. It's great to have both 'Find in Page' & 'End of Page' for my iPad2. Minor suggestions; How about reducing the height of menu bar with X and arrows as well as adjusting into a little lighter color as the bar blocks the area it occupies?
    One question: Both of your apps don't seem to be able to be used for some sites that can't be opened with Safari, like Newsweek for iPad version as they don't have no bookmsrk functions ? Is there any way for this?
