Amazon has just released a new piece of software, aimed at making your PC-Kindle interaction even easier. The new app is called Send to Kindle, and can be downloaded onto any Windows machine from here (Mac support is coming soon).

Send to Kindle adds new ways for you to send any personal document from your PC to your Kindle device or Kindle app. From Windows Explorer, you can right-click a document and choose “Send to Kindle” from the context menu. This can be done on several documents at once, without opening them. From any Windows application that can print, choose Print and then choose “Send to Kindle” from the print dialogue.

When you first install Send to Kindle, it will prompt you for your Amazon credentials. After logging in, you can start sending documents to your devices. When you choose to send some documents, you will get to choose which device you want to send the documents to. This can be your Kindle device or any other device on which you have installed the free Kindle app. You can also choose to archive documents in your Kindle library, and re-download them again whenever you wish.

Surprisingly, it seems that you can send almost any text file to your Kindle. Every file you send gets automatically converted to PDF, and is then able to display correctly on your Kindle. This enables you to send all sorts of documents to your Kindle, or back them up in your Kindle library as a form of cloud backup.

    keep in mind, unless they changed recently, it costs money to send to kindle. however having it generate a kindle friendly format and uploading that manually does not.

      I'm not sure what you mean by costs money to send to Kindle. I've used this tool in the past, and just checked it again now, and it's completely free.

      Am I missing something here?

    Wow, this is actually pretty awesome. Having to email them to your Kindle email address was pretty awkward.
