Amazon released today the Mac version of its Send to Kindle application, which enables you to send your personal documents directly to Kindle devices and iOS apps. Send to Kindle was first introduced to PC users back in January of this year.
After you download and install Send to Kindle on your Mac, you can drag and drop personal files (including Word documents, PDFs, JPGs, PNG, and RTF) onto the icon in your dock and they will be formatted and delivered to your Kindle supported devices and apps.
One of the benefits of using Send to Kindle is that it could help you streamline the number of registered devices and apps you use for reading personal documents on your mobile support devices. You can also archive documents on your Kindle Library, and access them via the cloud at anytime, which frees up storage space on your supporting device.
As with Kindle books, the last page read, bookmarks, and annotations also get automatically updated between devices using Amazon’s Whispersync feature, but there’s an extra fee for that service.
To use the free file transfer service, you need to set up your Send-to-Kindle email address, which is a unique address assigned to your supporting registered Kindle devices and apps.
Send to Kindle for Mac is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or 10.7 (Lion). At this time, Kindle reading applications that support reading documents are Kindle for Android (running app version 3.5 or greater) and the Kindle App for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
