Kindle iOS App Adds 'Send To Kindle'
The Kindle app for iOS now has a new feature called "Send to Kindle" which allows users to save content from Safari directly to their Kindle library for reading later. Furthermore, the new update also brings support for ComiXology's Guide View for comic readers.
The Send To Kindle Feature
Per Tech Crunch, Amazon has quietly rolled out the Send to Kindle feature to its Kinde for the iOS application. The company already supports saving web content to Kindle through desktop browser extensions, emails to your Send-to-Kindle email address and from Android smartphones. But with the new feature, that line-up now includes the default iOS browser and Safari which will make it more accessible to a large number of users.
According to 9to5 Mac, the Send to Kindle feature will allow the users to save documents and web pages to their Kindle Library by tapping the share button in Safari and then add Kindle as a destination. After doing so, the web pages will be converted to Kindle format so that users can adjust the text, font and page color, and read on any Kindle app or device.
Users can also use other Kindle features, like the ability to look up for words in the dictionary, translations or search Wikipedia. Furthermore, there's also the option to add bookmarks, highlights, annotations, and track reading process as well.
The ComiXology's Guide View
To add more of the reading pleasure, the Kindle app also now brings support for ComiXology's Guide View which will offer the readers a breakthrough cinematic and immersive reading mode for comics. There are also performance improvements and bug fixes as well.
Send To Kindle Feature Is Not New?
Several users are claiming that the new Send to Kindle feature was not launched this week nor this month. Apparently, it was spotted last month in Safari. If this claim is true, then it could mean it's either a phased rollout or a belated announcement from Amazon.
