iPad and iPhone: now you can add web pages to your Kindle app via share menu

Documents and web pages can be sent to Kindle for iOS app via native Share menu
From now on you can use Kindle app on your iPhone or iPad as a read-later service, thanks to Send to Kindle feature.

The new update of Kindle for iOS app brings two interesting features. One is ComiXology’s Guided View that lets experience comics with a cinematic and immersive reading mode.

The other feature is Send to Kindle, and it’s highly useful, at least for me. You can now send content directly to the Kindle app, using native iOS Share menu.

It was possible before to open compatible files directly in the Kindle app, for instance, email attachments in mobi format. The new Send to Kindle feature opens a lot more possibilities.

The new update of the Kindle for iOS puts the Kindle button in the native iOS Share menu. You can now send to the app not only the files in mobi format but also web pages.

For instance, if you are reading an article in Safari browser on The New York Times website, you can tap the Share menu, and then the Kindle icon (picture below, on the left).

You’ll see the screen where you can customize the title and author. Most importantly, you can decide whether you want the article to be added only to the Kindle app on the same device, or back it up in Kindle archive (picture below, right).

The web page won’t appear immediately in the Kindle app, as the content has to be converted to the readable format. I’ve made a couple of tests – it takes no more than a couple of minutes.

The new feature of the Kindle for iOS is a clear move towards read-later services, such as Pocket or Instapaper, where you can save articles for offline reading. Some users will also consider it as a better alternative to Safari’s Reading List, or the same feature recently added to Chrome for iOS.
