Introducing personal sender emails

Keendly is back!

After more than a week of being down, we’re back! What happened? So far the only information we shared was that we got blocked by Amazon from using the Send To Kindle service. Let us explain it a bit further. As you know, we are generating ebooks from articles. Those ebooks are pretty much just files in a format that Kindle devices understand. In order to make them appear on Kindle, we are sending them by email using the Send To Kindle service. [Read More]
