Svpply Bookmarklet for iPad

by Lorenzo Orlando Caum on June 28, 2012

Svpply helps you find the products you love, from the people and stores you find interesting.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to setup the Svpply bookmarklet on your Apple iPad.

We will need to create a bookmark and then go back and edit the bookmark to include the JavaScript code for the Svpply bookmarklet. The steps that we will be following are similar to the other tutorials on this site — only we will be inserting the code for Svpply.

Install the Svpply bookmarklet on the iPad

We will complete the following steps via the iPad.

Prepare your iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari

  • From your iPad, go to “Settings” and tap on “Safari.” Set Always Show Bookmarks Bar to “ON.” Set JavaScript to “ON.” Set Accept Cookies to “From visited.”
  • Next, open the Safari app and open this current page (go to iosbookmarklets.com and search for “Svpply” and select the tutorial for the iPad).
  • Now copy the code in the section (Svpply bookmarklet code)

Create a temporary bookmark in mobile Safari

Next, tap on the share icon (square with a right arrow) at the top of your Safari page and tap “Add Bookmark.” Ensure that it will be saving to the “Bookmarks Bar” and then hit “Save.”

Update the temporary bookmark with the code for the bookmarklet

  1. Now tap on the bookmark icon (open book) to pull up your bookmarks. Tap on the “Bookmarks Bar” folder. Then tap “Edit” in the top corner of your window.
  2. Select the bookmark that you just created. Change the name to something of your choice – perhaps ‘Svpply’ or ‘Svpply buy later’.
  3. Next, erase the URL shown and paste the bookmarklet code for Svpply (press and hold, then release, then tap “Paste”).
  4. Hit “Bookmarks Bar” located in the bottom top left corner to go back. Tap “Done” located in the top right corner. Tap the bookmark icon to make it disappear.

Those are all the steps! You’ve now installed the Svpply bookmarklet on your iPad.

      Try clearing your cache via Settings –> Safari. Then login to Svpply.com before trying to use the bookmark.

      Go to Settings –> Safari and clear cookies. Then go to Safari and login to http://svpply.com. Then you can use the buy later bookmark.

      I just tested it with a children’s book on Amazon and it worked: http://cl.ly/image/010U1r3B3S0x
