On my Mac/Windows PC…Send to Kindle apps, browser extensions and blog plugins

Send to Kindle

 "Reading your documents and web content on Kindle is now easier than ever. Use Send to Kindle applications to read on your Kindle devices and free reading apps on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android."

The truth is, despite my computer geek leanings, sometimes I like to kick back with a nice book (or ebook) and read unencumbered by my laptop. I have been using a similar browser plugin in for Google Chrome that allows me to send longer content to my Kindle for a while and I have really enjoyed it. It is a more comfortable experience for reading and, as a result, I seem to retain a bit more of what I have read, instead of just skimming the content.

Clicking the Send to Kindle button (or using the browser add-ons) will format the blog post for easier reading on the Kindle and then send it to any of your registered devices. In my case, I can send it to my iPhone, my Kindle Touch, my Kindle Fire or the Kindle app on my Android phone.

On My Mac/Windows PC is an on-going series highlighting the software (and sometimes, hardware) I use on my Mac nearly every day. Look for additional On My Mac…posts in the coming weeks! -- Douglas
