Are you the type who reads yourself to sleep or the one who likes to read for long hours on your favorite couch? Perhaps you just want to conserve your smartphone battery by reading on your Kindle instead as you commute.
Comfy Read is an app and a cloud-based service that lets you send web articles right from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to your Kindle reading device or Kindle apps installed on various devices you own.
Starting with iOS 8, Apple introduced Share Extensions, that allow applications to share content from one app, to other apps beyond the ones with built-in support by iOS, like Twitter and Facebook. Once you've purchased Comfy Read and you tap the box-and-outward-arrow Share button on Safari and many, many other apps, you will likely see a "Send To Kindle" option. Tap it and the web article you just shared is on it's way to your Kindle.
All you need to do to get Comfy Read working is a simple, 2-step process. Every Kindle device you have, including Kindle apps installed on smartphones, tablets and desktops have an email address associated with them. Provide that email address to Comfy Read. You can find your Kindle's associated email address right from the Kindle device settings or from your Amazon Kindle management page.
Secondly, you need to white-list Comfy Read's delivery email address in your Amazon Kindle management page. Once you do this, you are ready to send web articles straight from your iOS devices to your Kindle.

Ratings and Reviews
has worked well so far
I was not sure if I should have bought or not after I had read the reviews. I recently bought my kindle and enjoy reading articles with it. so I decided to give this app a shot. It works well for now. I am not sure if there is a mistake or a problem on the articles after conversion. I was able to send an article from News app from my Iphone 6s. It is worth $4. If I will have problem, I will write again.
Cuts articles short
I had no problems getting Comfyread to send articles to my Kindle Paperwhite. (I wonder if those having problems are setting their email permissions correctly — a really common problem.)
The thing is, well over half the time the articles arrive truncated. Not just slightly altered, but a good chunk simply missing, from the beginning, end, or both.
This makes this app unusable. If they can fix this problem, I will happily try it again, because it otherwise did a good job converting them for my Kindle.
I've been waiting an app like this for years!
Simple straightforward app works great. This is like pocket for Kendall! Just follow directions and it works great. If you do not white list the account in your Kindle app it will not work simple as that. Ridiculously simple as long as you follow it two sentence instructions.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
