Mac users can now send files direct from their computer to their Kindle, putting them on par with PCs.
Available to download from Amazon, the “Send to Kindle” for Mac software enables users to archive any documents that are sent to their Kindle, including the latest Amazon Kindle Touch 3G, allowing them to re-download as and when they choose.
Once the application is downloaded, the Send to Kindle icon appears in the Mac’s dock. To then send documents to a Kindle, files need simply to be dragged and dropped on to the icon.
Alternatively users can select the print menu where they’ll have the option to transfer the file to “Send to Kindle” or they can control click and send files via that method.
PC users have been able to use Send to Kindle since January, but this is the first time the service has been available on Mac.
Send to Kindle for Macs require OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) or Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion). You can download the app here.
