I recently discovered two excellent web services for the Kindle.
- kindlefeeder is a RSS reader for the Kindle. Anyone who has used Google Reader or Bloglines on the Kindle knows how cumbersome normal rss readers through the Kindle browser. kindlefeeder compiles your feeds into a “book” that you can download everyday, week or whenever you want (or have sent to your kindle email addresses). The site has a premium service provides a download through the kindle browser. Then you can read your content without worrying about the Internet connection on the wonderful, easy-on-the-eyes eInk screen. I made a “favorites” feature request and the developer already responded.
- FeedBooks provides a way for you to download free books through your kindle, as well as a way to prepare rss feeds as books. It gets really exciting when you see the way they’ve put together their catalogue.
It’s been a while since I’ve looked over the Kindle space (even though I use my Kindle more than my Blackberry) and I’m pleased to see innovation and interest growing around the platform.
