Amazon “Send to Kindle” button brings the desktop to your Kindle

Amazon's "Send to Kindle" button has become official. It's similar to the "Chrome-to-Phone" app where you can send any website page you're viewing straight to your Kindle device. The button is available on many platforms, including Chrome, Firefox, email, desktop, or even your Android device. Yes, you can send content from your Android device straight to your Kindle Fire, be it a webpage you want to view on a bigger screen, or a document you keep on your mobile.


The Send to Kindle button isn't limited to just owners of an Amazon Kindle Fire. If you have a Kindle app for your Android phone or tablet, you can have your content redirected there. All you have to do is install the Send to Kindle button (which appears as an app on your desktop, or as a extension button on your browser), and select a primary device to send the content to.

The Send to Fire desktop app will let you send various documents to your Kindle tablet or Kindle app via a drag and drop feature. So if you have a report you need to proofread, or a short story you need to read, Amazon makes it easy for you to send it to its reading app. Amazon's Send to Kindle button will also be making its way to many blogs and websites, similar to the Facebook "Share" button.

All of your Send to Kindle websites will be archived into the button's history tab, something that I don't believe Chrome to Phone has implemented. So if you need to access a previously visited website, but you just don't remember what it was called, you can easily browse through your history for it. That of course being said, you might want to clear your history if you've been visiting some risque sites.
