Amazon is now allowing web publishers like this website to give their daily readers the ability to push posts to their Kindle devices for reading at a later date. Introducing the “Send to Kindle” button which could be considered similar to the Facebook share button, but instead of sharing online content with your friends the “Send To Kindle” button allows Kindle owners to send an interesting article to their Kindle to be read when its convenient.
The buttons comes as an alternative option to methods already dominant such as as Instapaper and Pocket formerly known as Read it Later. The company revealed that its Send to Kindle button is now available to web publishers via its Kindle Blog, if you are a web publisher you can simply implement the option on your website by hard coding the button into your site or if you are using WordPress simply download and install the plugin.
“The Send to Kindle Button lets you easily send that content to your Kindle to read later, at your convenience. Just send once and read everywhere on any of your Kindle devices or free Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad and Android phones or tablets. No more hunting around for that website or blog that caught your eye — just open your Kindle and all the content you sent is right there. The Send to Kindle Button is also great for those who want to collect content from the web to use in work projects, school assignments, or hobbies.” Amazon revealed in its official release of the online web publishing function.
