    In my iMac, iPhone, and iPad, my bookmarks are syncing across all three devices/systems. But my reading list from Safari on my iMac isn't showing up on my iOS devices.

    The only thing I can think of is that reading list might require iCloud and I haven't transitioned my MobileMe over to iCloud just yet.

    Does anyone know?

    "Reading List lets you save interesting articles to peruse later, while iCloud keeps your list updated across all your devices."

    That's from Apple's iOS 5 features list:

    So... yeah, you probably need to transition to iCloud.

    Same problem re Reading List not syncing across Lion and IOS 5 devices

    Reading List isn't syncing in Safari across all of my devices (Macbook Pro, iPad and iPhone 4). It does, however, sync between the iPad and the iPhone 4.

    I'm signed up for iCloud and have it activated on all systems. Interestingly, under Lion in System Preferences > iCloud there is a check box for bookmarks but not for Reading List.

    Advice, please. Am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    You have 10.7.2 and are signed in to iCloud on the MacBook, right?
