Amazon launches “Send To Kindle” button for WordPress blogs

Amazon's Send to Kndle button

Amazon’s Kindle ebook reader is one of the most popular ebook readers in the market, and since the company has a very good library of books which people can get on their Kindles, the product is also a very good hit. One thing which Amazon realized early in the game is that people will not want to read only ebooks on their Kindle, they may want to read news articles or blogs when they are free and do not want to work on a laptop. For this, the company released a couple of buttons for the Google Chrome web browser and the Mozilla Firefox web browser, after Chrome. These buttons could be used to send stuff to Kindles directly.

And there is also the option to send files to your Kindle by emailing to your Kindle. And there is always the good old USB connection which can be used to transfer files. But yesterday, after a year’s gap, the company has released a new read it later like solution, which is a “Send to Kindle” button for websites and Word Press blogs. Such an extension for Word Press is really good, along with so many other plugins available. In fact, the Washington Post, the Time magazine, and the blog Boing Boing are already using these plugins.

“The Send to Kindle Button lets you easily send that content to your Kindle to read later, at your convenience. Just send once and read everywhere on any of your Kindle devices or free Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad and Android phones or tablets. No more hunting around for that website or blog that caught your eye — just open your Kindle and all the content you sent is right there. The Send to Kindle Button is also great for those who want to collect content from the web to use in work projects, school assignments, or hobbies.”
