DroidToReader: Send web pages to your Kindle from your Droid

SendToReader is a web application that allows you to send web pages to your Kindle. Pages sent this way are formatted so that they look and feel like a Kindle book. This means that you don’t have to read long articles on your computer monitor which, many will admit, does strain their eyes.

Why am I telling you about SendToReader? Because I’ve created an application that makes use of the SendToReader API and allows you to send pages from your Android-powered device to your Kindle. It’s called DroidToReader.

To use this, you’ll need a SendToReader account. Get one by clicking here.

After installing DroidToReader, open it and enter your SendToReader username and password. You can check that everything is correct by pressing the menu button and tapping “Test credentials”. If everything went OK, you can now send web pages to your Kindle by tapping on the DroidToReader option in your Android browser’s “Share” menu. (sidenote: By “Android browser” I mean whatever browser you’re using. I tested it with the stock browser and Opera Mobile and both worked fine)

That’s it. DroidToReader is live in the Android Market and is compatible with Android 2.1 and up (Honeycomb included). Go get it and enjoy reading on your Kindle.

    i encounter eror 406. What does this mean?

    • HawkiesZA says:

      From SendToReader’s API:

      “406: An error occured inside Sendtoreader.com’s backend. Probably missing a required parameter, or kindle email is not defined for this user.”

      Are you sure you’ve set the correct Kindle email address in SendToReader?

    Hi, I’m the guy who mentioned you on twitter the other day. I really loved your app and am very thankful. I have applied DroidToReader to be used with Seesmic for sending news or magazines articles directly from Twitter feed onto Kindle. Here’s my little contribution to your awesome app: http://oed86.wordpress.com/kindleandroid-the-big-setup/
