At 11am ET, Monday, Readability's Android App will finally be available, but only at the Amazon Appstore on your device, for the first week.
Readability's CEO Rich Ziade told The Verge
' We've been talking to Amazon for a while because their heritage is so grounded in reading with the Kindle products... We even went to great lengths to scale up the Readability experience on the Kindle Fire so that the type and interface is right-sized...
Readability jumps immediately to the head of the Android class thanks to a beautiful, typography-based UI, and functionality identical to its iOS counterpart.
It's clearly designed for Android 4.0 and beyond, with basically no support for the Menu button, but those without Ice Cream Sandwich should get used to it quickly. We're fans already, and we're betting Monday's going to make a lot of Android users into happy new Readability users. '
SendToReader [to Kindle]
Most popular, so far, with those I know, for this type of capability for the e-Ink Kindle readers, has been the web tool SendtoReader, and for reasons why that is so, see the many comments and feedback on that.
I haven't tried the regular web SendToReader with the Kindle Fire yet. Would really like to hear/read feedback by any readers who have.
Question about another Android App of this type, which I've never heard anything about and the one review is not a verified Amazon purchase.
ALSO, it is an Amazon store app for Android devices in general but not shown as available for Kindle Fire owners (as is true for the popular Dropbox).
Push to Kindle by Fivefilters.org, released July 2, 2011, so, apparently an Android app before the Kindle Fire existed.
One never knows if Amazon just hasn't allocated time to test it or it proved to be not trouble-free.
It's $2.30 on the Android Market (now known as Google Play and has 33 reviews and 4.9 stars average there from regular Android phone and tablet users (twenty-nine 5-stars, four 4-stars). For the Android Market, that's a high average.
Since many of us have Android smartphones or other supplementary tablets it might be of interest, but is $2 at Amazon and the coming Readability app for Android will be free, from what I can see.
Even with the web edition of Readability, there are web pages the content of which it won't send completely, so I'm always curious about other utilities like this and what experiences people have had.
Details and reader reviews are at Google Play [Market]
The authors of SendToReader (Sergey Pozhilov) and PushToKindle (Keyvan) have added comments below.
As many Kindleworld readers know, Sideloading non-Amazon apps from other websources that you have reason to trust is allowed by Amazon. See How to Sideload non-Amazon apps for the steps.
SendToReader offers a 3rd-party Kindle Fire app done by another software developer as an AddOn for SendToReader which gives the same results as when done via a computer browser, and it would probably work only with the Kindle Fire default web browser (Silk) but I've asked that question in Comments.
PushtoKindle's current Amazon-sold Android App apparently allows the web-articles sent, to be read by the Kindle Apps of other (non Kindle Fire) Android tablets. You can contact either author with questions via their linked names under the Comments area.
I personally haven't tried the apps and am just providing info for others like me who like to use this type of utility to be able to read longer web articles on the Kindles.
Instapaper has decided not to do an Android app, from what I've seen there.
As ever, appreciate any feedback on these.
