Clearing the iOS Cache

Last Updated: Jul 10, 2013 04:54PM EDT
If offline reading in Safari isn't working perfectly, we recommend the following steps.  

  1. Fully quit both Readability and Safari by:

     a) double-clicking the Home button,
     b) scrolling the list of recent apps until you find Safari or Readability,
     c) tap and hold the app's icon in that multitasking bar for a second or two until it starts to "wiggle" and you see a little minus badge in top left corner of the icon
     d) tap the red minus badge on Safari and then Readability (it doesn't really matter which you do first)
  2. Delete the Readability icon from your home screen.
  3. Open Settings > Safari and click the Clear Cache button.
  4. Return to the home screen and open Safari.
  5. Visit in Safari and "Add to Home Screen" from the Safari send button.
  6. Return to the home screen and open Readability from the app.
  7. Head back to Settings and turn on Airport mode. 
  8. ...and back to Readability, where you should now see your Reading List and Archives and be able to read offline.

We're also fans of the Reeder apps for iPhone and iPad. Both integrate Readability reading lists incredibly well.
