Quickly save your favorite recipes from across the web to ZipList.


In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to setup the ZipList 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 ZipList bookmarklet. The steps that we will be following are similar to other tutorials on this site — only we will be inserting the code for ZipList.

Install the ZipList bookmarklet on the iPad

We will complete the following steps via the iPad.

Prepare your Apple iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari

  • From your iPad, go to “Settings” and tap on “Safari.” Set Show Favorites Bar to “ON.” Set Block Cookies to “Never.” Tap “Advanced” and set JavaScript to “ON.”
  • Next, open the Safari app and open this current page (go to and search for “ZipList” and select the tutorial for the iPad).
  • Now copy the code in the section (ZipList bookmarklet code)

Create a temporary bookmark in mobile Safari

Next, tap on the share icon (square with arrow) at the top of your Safari page and tap “Bookmark.” Ensure that it will be saving to the “Favorites” and then tap “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 “Favorites” folder. Then tap “Edit” in the corner of your window.
  2. Select the bookmark that you just created. Change the name to something of your choice – perhaps ‘ZipList’ or ‘ZipList Recipe Clipper’.
  3. Next, erase the URL shown and paste the bookmarklet code for ZipList (press and hold, then release, then tap “Paste”).
  4. Tap “Favorites” located in the bottom top left corner to go back. Tap “Done” located in the corner. Tap the bookmark icon to make it disappear.

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

    I followed these instructions, but after I hit my ziplist bookmark and log in, I get the following error, despite the fact that I’ve enabled cookies “from visited” in the Safari settings.

    “I’m sorry, something went wrong. It could be that your browser is not accepting what are called “third party cookies”. For the ZipList recipe clipper to work your browser must be set to allow for third party cookies.”

      Shut down the Safari app. Then go to settings and clear cookies. Then go back to the Safari app and login to The bookmarklet for ZipList should then work as expected.

    Thank you so much! Wish I had read his first before I spent all that time trying to sync my iPad yadda…! Worked like a charm!

    I installed this, I see it up there. I cannot figure out how to get it to work. When I am on a site and try to save the recipe…I click on the Ziplist and get a message that says
    “The bookmarklet is installed! Now you can click your Web recipe clicker button to save recipes as you browse sites around the web and Pintrest”.

    What am I doing wrong? Help!

      Try clearing your cookies. Then login to The bookmarklet should then work.

    Thank you so much for this. I didn’t think I would be able to add {a variety of} bookmarklets to my iPad browsers. This has saved me tons of headache and has helped me tons! The tutorial was super simple. I will be sharing this site and your tutorials! Thanks again!!!
