Lion Reading List now syncing with iOS

Apple's newly active Reading List in Safari for Lion Developer Preview 3 is now known to be syncing with iOS devices. Handheld owners syncing Safari bookmarks either through iTunes or through MobileMe are now seeing a rough "com.Apple.ReadingList" folder in their bookmarks list with the relevant articles loaded inside. It's presumed a later preview or the final version of Lion will give the folder a new name and possibly treat it differently in software through an iOS version of the Reading List.

Safari Reading List apes Instapaper, Readability

New subscription rules harm dev's business model

Apple has blocked a native Readability iOS app from appearing at the App Store, its developers say.
