Editors' Review

+

Lacking a fancy name and a fancy interface, and still in beta, Auto Kindle eBook Converter nevertheless quickly converts some of the most-used desktop formats to a Kindle-friendly MOBI for free.

Compatible with PDF, HTML, LIT, PDB, and CHM files, the program opens to a Windows file browser. Choose the file you want to convert, hit Open, and then choose your destination folder. The converter goes to work, generally converting files quickly--although this depends on the length of your document. When it's done, connect your Kindle to your computer and move the file into the Documents folder. Safely disconnect the Kindle, and the converted file will appear in your main list of documents, automatically converted on the Kindle to its default MPB format.

The freeware converter is dead simple but there's plenty of room for improvement. The most obvious thing it's missing is a graphical interface, which could be combined with a default output directory to cut out several steps. Some formats may also hiccup on images, so don't be surprised if pictures don't always convert. However, it works and offers users another option besides e-mailing documents to their Kindle and paying the small conversion fee.

"simplistic but has potential"

 |  Version: Auto Kindle eBook Converter 0.4.35

Pros

Fills a niche that has been mostly overlooked.

Cons

No interface. Multiple conversions would be a welcome addition. A preview of finished product prior to transfer to kindle would also be a nice feature to have.

Summary

I have been waiting for someone to come up with a program along these lines since purchasing my kindle in December of 07. Although this is quite clearly a get it off the floor beta it works as advertised and relieves the hassle of having to go through amazon.

Looking forward to the next iteration of this program...
