It doesn't bring up any Activities list, only the following:

Add Bookmark
Add to Reading List
Add to Home Screen
Add to Shared Links

How do I get that Activities list? Please respond by emailing me directly.

PS I know I have apps that can be added to Safari because they're in the picture on the list I found on the help page when I was trying to add a bookmarklet for one of them.
