Kindle It: Send web articles to your Kindle.
Kindle It lets you send web articles (news stories, blog posts, Wikipedia entries, etc.) to your Kindle (app or device) for a better reading experience.
It offers a send to Kindle option in the share menu: Once installed you will see 'Kindle It' as an option when you choose to share a web page (Menu > More > Share page). Select it to send the article to your Kindle.
WHY USE IT?
* Send long web articles to your Kindle to read later.
* Build up a reading list of articles for offline reading.
* Improve your reading experience (along similar lines to Readability or Instapaper).
WHAT DO I NEED
Either a Kindle e-ink device sold by Amazon or the free Kindle for Android app.
You can choose to have articles saved to your Android device (to be read with the Kindle for Android app), sent to Amazon for delivery to your Kindle device, or both. If delivery is to your Kindle device, you will be asked to enter your Kindle email details. These will be saved, allowing you to send pages to your Kindle quickly without having your browsing interrupted.

Note: We currently only send to free Kindle addresses, so you will not incur any charges from Amazon. (The next release will give you the option of choosing 3G delivery to your Kindle.)
* Long-press address bar to bring up the share menu.

CAN YOU HELP IF IT DOESN'T EXTRACT THE CORRECT CONTENT?
Yes! If you have trouble with a particular site, please email us a URL: email@example.com - we can usually write custom extraction rules for problem sites.

PERMISSIONS AND PRIVACY
Explaining the reasons we require certain permissions for this app:
* FULL INTERNET ACCESS - when you invoke Kindle It on a web article, we need to send the URL of the article to our web service for processing (to extract the article's contents and convert it to the Kindle format).
* VIEW NETWORK STATE - we use this to make sure there's Internet access before we communicate with our web service.
* MODIFY/DELETE SD CARD CONTENTS - we only use this permission when you choose to have articles stored on the device (for reading with Kindle for Android). We do not delete any files (you can do this yourself from Kindle for Android). If you choose to send articles only to your Kindle device, we do not touch the SD card at all.
General notes on privacy and caching:
If the web page you are viewing does not point to publically accessible content, we will not be able to retrieve it. For example, if you invoke Kindle It (by mistake, perhaps) while you're reading an email on GMail, or viewing your bank statement, that content will not be accessible to the Kindle It service run by FiveFilters.org nor to Amazon.
Content which is publically accessible and which you process with the Kindle It service will be cached on the server for a short period. If you provide email details to enable delivery to your Kindle device, we do not store nor cache the supplied email address on the server once the Kindle document has been sent to Amazon for delivery to your Kindle. The email details will be saved only on your Android device.
