If I bookmark a page on my iPhone or iPad, when is it supposed to synch to the other devices - my iPhone, iPad, Macs? I keep checking and it does not seem to update the bookmarks on the other devices. Is this reliable? I can't always remember to check to see if my other devices have been updated with the bookmarks. I have it set to synch bookmarks through iCloud on each device.

Thanks.

Are you logged into Safari on your Mac?

I didn't know I needed to log into Safari. Where do you even do that? I though iCloud would just synch the book mark file from Safari across my devices.

Maybe I should give Chrome a try.

Thanks.

Chrome is awesome when it comes to syncing, it sinks not just your bookmarks but everything in the browser, even extensions.

Another cool feature is that if you have a set of tabs open in Chrome in your computer, you can access those tabs in Chrome for iOS (and viceversa).
