Following the release of the “Send to Kindle” Windows software a few months ago, Amazon has now issued the Mac version. The program allows OS X users to send documents to their Kindles or Kindle mobile apps directly from their desktops.
Sending files is easy: Simply drag-and-drop (onto the dock), or send from inside the software or within any application using the print dialog window. “Your last page read along with bookmarks, notes, and highlights are automatically synchronized for your documents (with the exception of PDFs) across your Kindle devices and Kindle apps for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Android,” says the company. It also notes that users can use the program to archive docs in the Kindle library, for downloading later. This is particularly handy if you don’t want the files taking up space on your device immediately.
Minimum requirements for the application are a Mac with a 500 MHz Intel processor, 512MB of RAM, 100MB of available disk space, and Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) or Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion).
