Send To Kindle: Amazon’s Desktop App To Transfer Documents Directly To Your Kindle Device

Umar 19-01-2012

The Kindle device has long been in need of a dedicated application that transfers documents from your computer to the Kindle device. But since this can be done simply through Windows, such an app would need extra features to be noteworthy. These ‘extra features’ have certainly been added into Amazon’s new app titled “Send to Kindle.”

Send to Kindle is Amazon’s free desktop application to help Kindle owners transfer documents from their computers to their devices. The app’s setup file is sized at nearly 5MB and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and 7. With the app installed you can right-click on documents or a selection of them and use the context menu to send files directly to Kindle. In case your device is not connected to your computer, the files are saved for synchronization later.

Supported documented files include .DOC, .DOCX, .TXT, .RTF, .JPEG, .JPG, GIF, .PNG, .BMP and .PDF. The app also adds a new virtual printer that can send virtually anything you can print to your Kindle device by first converting it into a PDF file.

    This is a great app. It's absolutely simple to use and allows me to view a lot of files unsupported by kindle, simply by using the "print to kindle" pdf option. Right clicking and adding documents couldn't be simpler or faster. The reason why an individual's registration is required is because the docs are also stored in your personal "cloud."

    It's not about a goofy work-around, it's about security. This is a great addition to kindle usability.

    Too bad Amazon makes it so difficult to get this software to work. I downloaded one of their free ebooks and tried to "Send it to..." my wife's Kindle but...NO. A reply from Amazon said I had to register hers in my name or use some goofy work-around. I'm going to check out Nook to see if that software is better.
