- Rated 1 out of 5I mostly want to send academic articles to my kindle with this app (several per week). But, contrary to send to kindle (which i use on chrome), this doesn't work behind a university proxy and paywall (I only get the authentification page to my university). Because of this, I keep going back to Chrome for work while I would prefer to use Firefox...
Developer responseposted 2 months agoHi there, we are working on a solution to this. At the moment we make our own request for the content, but with more and more sites introducing paywalls or requiring authenticated access, we're not able to retrieve those articles. Hope to have a new version of the extension out soon which will send the content you've already loaded in your browser for processing.
- Rated 5 out of 5The most important feature for me is that it's support right to left languages like Persian. Thank you!
- Rated 5 out of 5All the other "send or push to kindle" methods dont work but this one. I am very very grateful for this app! Thanks!!
- Rated 4 out of 5I've been using this app for a long time and it was a big reason for my sticking with my kindle as a reading device. However, the inability to utilise the footnote function (where readers can touch/select a footnote in a page and it will appear at the bottom of the page) rather than having to go all the way to the end of the document, is a real shortcoming. I'm familiar with arguements against footnotes - i.e. that they are a distraction, but if an author inculdes them in a text it is surely because they think it important and it is then up to the reader whether s/he divert her attention from the body of the text to read the footnote or not. In any case, having to go to the back of the document to read them is a much greater distraction. It would make this addon that much more useful-- perfect, even, if it had this feature.
- Rated 5 out of 5Thank you! Works great.
- Rated 5 out of 5Thanks for this great app! A couple of notes:
- It would be great to have a setting which would let us leave links within the text since Kindle has a built-in browser
- Sometimes problems happen with non-latin texts. For example, only a small portion is shown for this article: https://gorky.media/context/istoriki-boyatsya-matematikov-iz-za-fomenko/
- Rated 5 out of 5hope app could be better. thanks
- Rated 4 out of 5I've bypassed this addon for so long because I'm using Pocketbook and the addon's name screams "I'm for Kindle users only!" You should change its name to Push to e-reader. It was pure coincidence I found out Pocketbook users can use it too.
EDIT. as for localized letters converting to symbols, well, I can't seem to replicate it to send you some sample url to investigate. Hopefully this means problem is gone.
Sadly, there is another problem. I'm premium Wyborcza.pl subscriber, I see fully displayed articles, yet they are sometimes pushed partly - generated file only contains few initial paragraphs.
Developer responseposted a year agoThank you for the review, and your suggestion. We'll definitely think about how we can better let Pocketbook users know about this feature. I'm sorry you'd avoided it because you assumed it wouldn't work with your device.
As for the title problem. We're happy to take a look if you send us an example (URL of source article which isn't converted properly) to email@example.com
Natassja: we are working on a fix for such sites. Currently Push to Kindle makes its own request for content, and on sites like this where a subscription is required to see the entire piece, it will not get the full content. We hope to have a solution soon that will send the content you see, rather than relying on what the site gives us.
