Finally, A Tool for Sending Files From PC to Kindle

On Thursday Amazon released a handy tool for Windows PCs that allows Kindle owners to send files (TXT, HTML, DOC, and PDF) directly to the device. Prior to the tool, users were forced to send files to their Kindle by emailing it to their Send-To-Kindle e-mail address.

Once downloaded and installed, Send to Kindle will appear when users right-click on a file in Windows Explorer, or in the print dialog of any Windows application. To send multiple documents to Kindle without opening them, users simply select documents and choose Send to Kindle from the right-click menu in Windows Explorer.

"You can also simply archive documents in your Kindle Library for re-download later," Amazon states in a blog. "Your last page read along with bookmarks, notes and highlights are automatically synchronized for your documents (with the exception of PDFs) across your Kindle devices and supported Kindle reading apps."

Send to Kindle is available to download and use for free at www.amazon.com/sendtokindle. Support for Mac is coming soon. The app supports Kindle Keyboard, Kindle, Kindle Touch, Kindle for iPad, Kindle for iPhone and Kindle for iPod.
