4.4 Stars out of 5
- by R. Moreno, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great. I used to use the Send to Kindle official app, but as well as it usually hanged and I didn't know if it had sent or not the article, this one is fast, does not fail and though lacks the possibility of sending without previewing I loose much less time overall.
- by klint, 6 years agoRated 4 out of 5Other e-readers like Pocketbook work on the exact same mail principle. So would you mind implementing a Push-to-Pocketbook option? Only the email host name differs from the Kindle one (email@example.com for Pocketbook). Thanks
Thank you for you reply and for the good news. But maybe you should mention this on the addon page itself as well, or even rename the addon ;) . Thanks again
Developer responseposted 6 years agoHi Klint, thanks for the review. Just wanted to say that this is already supported. Where you see @free.kindle.com in the form, you can click it and you'll get a list of alternative options, including @pbsync.com.
- by chiara, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5makes readability infinitely better. is there any chance that it will be available on thunderbird? there are plenty of long emails i'd like to read on my kindle. thanks again.
Developer responseposted 8 years agoThanks Chiara. We have no plans yet for a Thunderbird extension, but will consider it. One workaround is to copy the email message and paste it into our Paste Pad tool: http://pastepad.fivefilters.org/ - this will then let you send it to your Kindle.
Appreciate the feedback.
- by Firefox user 6506364, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great, and greater than other tools I tried. It makes what it is made to do, and in the best way to do it.
I have a question, or maybe a recommandation: how can we send the comments below the article we push to Kindle ? It always cuts them off.
Thank you !
- by bullture, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5One of the most annoying things on web is the amount of misc adds" above, below, in the middle of websites, redirecting your attention from article you've actually came to read, every possible way .... stop digging - start reading, now or later, on Kindle or PC could be Kindle It slogan, as it (! one-click not DIY !) stripes down all irrelevant and the rest can be sent either directly to your eBook reader or saved\printed as PDF via your PC.
Thanks - You make my day (several times each day)
- by keymon, 8 years agoRated 5 out of 5This a really a great tool. It has a android app aswell. This tool, in combination with readitlater, will help you to keep updated and read comfortably any kind of blog or news.
- by LK, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5If you have a kindle, install this extension next. Initially, I thought Kindle was for reading only books. But this extension changed my perception completely and I now read blogs, news and other stuff on my kindle.
I haven't used any other similar extension... I guess there is no need to look around. Its almost perfect.
Wish if it could also support web site logins.
Developer responseposted 8 years agoThanks for the review, LK. Glad you're finding the extension useful. As for sites that require login - we're working on it. In the meantime however you can use our paste pad to make that content available to our web tools. It requires manually copying and pasting, so not as easy as the one click approach, but it's one way to get inaccessible content into the tool. http://pastepad.fivefilters.org

- by tzo, 8 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great addon. Now I spend hours reading in my kindle instead of my laptop.
Only one problem: keyboard shortcut is the same as "web console" that is embedded in firefox.
Developer responseposted 7 years agoHi there, thanks a lot for the review. Just a quick update to say the latest version (1.5) has the keyboard shortcut disabled by default. The keyboard shortcut can now be set from the addon's options page (visible when you view your installed addons in Firefox). There are 4 shortcuts to choose from now (one of which does not conflict with any built-in shortcuts).
- by yaapal, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5A must have for kindle owner. But could you please make an option to hide the icon on the menu bar? For me the keyboard shortcut is good enough. Thanks in advance!
update: I also found that the email address could not be saved so I need to type/choose it every time. I could not find a setting for this.
Developer responseposted 9 years agoThanks for the feedback. Not being able to hide the icon is an issue we're working on. It should be fixed in the next release.
As for the email address not being saved, please check the following:
* Ensure local storage (an HTML5 feature) is enabled - it should be by default. We use it to save the email address. See http://stackoverflow.com/a/7358969/407938 to check whether it's enabled or not.
Let us know if you still have trouble.
- by im.totoro, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5I've tried other similar services, such as Send to Kindle bookmarklet by Klip.me and SENDtoREADER bookmarklet and found that KIndle It is the best. It can handle pages that the other two can't and the web pages are nicely formatted, much better than the other two.
- by ponzonik, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5There are 3 problems with this beta firefox addon.
1: If you click on the kindleit button and switch tabs, the kindleit overlay disappears (different than in chrome). So you miss the "Sent!" confirmation if you switch tabs waiting for it to send the article.
2: The email address field is narrower than in chrome and I can't see the whole address.
3: No way to put the button on the main toolbar.
Developer responseposted 9 years agoPonzonik, many thanks for the feedback. All very good points. We are going to start work on an updated extension very soon to bring this in line with the Chrome extension.
To address your points specifically:
1. In the new version we will be loading the panel URL in your current tab, the same way it works with the Chrome extension.
2. The email address being narrower is something we'll have to look into.
3. Toolbar button is something else we're going to try and do as many are reporting the icon in the add-on bar disappears occasionally.
- by Firefox user 5910843, 9 years agoRated 4 out of 5It works and has a snazzy icon, but was needlessly hard to setup because I could not figure out what they meant about "approved addresses". It took me forever to figure out that I was supposed to go to www.amazon.com/myk and sign into my kindle account THERE and set it up to allow me to get kindle downloads from firstname.lastname@example.org and/or the other email addresses I use (which didn't happen to be the one I use to sign into my Amazon account.) But now that I have it working I'll be sending larger stuff to read offline instead of printing it out. Yay for saving trees!
- by msimanga, 9 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great addon, I use it to download pages I would like to read on my Kindle as .epub documents. I didn't use the "send to Kindle" options but it works great for my simple use.
