One of the most underrated features of the Kindle product is the capability to send documents to your device for safe keeping and easy reading in the future. In the past you have been able to e-mail a document directly to yourself, or if you had a Windows PC, you could use the Send to Kindle app . Yesterday, Amazon released a Send to Kindle app for the Mac.

Send to Kindle, once installed on your Mac, will allow you to drag and drop any compatible file type to your dock and it will then be sent directly to your Kindle device(s) of choice. You are also able to print directly to your Kindle when printing a document. Simply change the printer from your default printer to the Send to Kindle option.

Once you have started the process of sending a document to your Kindle, you will be given some options. You can pick and choose the devices the document will be sent to, and whether or not you want the document to be downloaded immediately, or archived. You will also be able to decide if you want the document sent via Wi-Fi only, or Whispernet.

The Send to Kindle app is free, and makes it extremely easy to send documents to your Kindle. If the idea of sending documents to your Kindle is new to you, you can read about the ins and outs of the service here.
