- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 10634846, 4 years agoI'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 4 out of 5by natassja, 4 years agoI'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 4 years 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
