Kindle Personal Documents are now in Amazon Cloud Drive

I received today a great e-mail:

Quote:
Dear Kindle Customer,

As a past user of personal documents on Kindle devices or reading apps, we are pleased to let you know about some improvements we've made to how personal documents work.

Personal documents are now in Amazon Cloud Drive: Starting today, all personal documents that you have archived in your Kindle Library will be available to access, delete, organize, and share from your Amazon Cloud Drive. You can see these documents in a new "My Send-to-Kindle Docs" folder alongside all of your saved content such as photos and personal videos.

There is no action required on your part. Your personal documents features will continue to work just as they have in the past. And as always, you can use Manage Your Kindle to see a list of your documents, re-deliver them to Kindle devices and free reading apps, delete them, or turn off auto-saving of documents to the cloud. Documents will be delivered just as they have in the past and you will continue to have 5 GB of free cloud storage for your personal documents. Just "Send Once, Read Everywhere."

Documents stored in their native format: Also starting today, new documents that you save to the cloud with Send to Kindle will be stored in their native format (e.g. MS Word, TXT) so you can access them anywhere from Amazon Cloud Drive.

Please note: Your usage of Amazon Cloud Drive is subject to the Amazon Cloud Drive Terms of Use.

Sincerely,
The Docs Team

To learn more about sending documents, news, blogs, and other web articles to your Kindle, please visit amazon.com/sendtokindle

To learn more about Amazon Cloud Drive features and apps, please visit amazon.com/clouddrive/learnmore
First observations:
  1. List of Personal Documents are limited to first 500 files (alphabetically). New files uploaded breaks 500 files limit, but older files are not accessible.
  2. Many files have incorrect extension .azw instead of .azw3.
  3. You still have to upload file with Send to Kindle if you want to deliver files to Kindle devices. Uploaded files via Amazon Cloud are not visible on amazon.com/myk site.

I thought for a moment that this might mean that finally kindle pdocs could be sent to Kindle For Mac/PC - but no, it doesn't seem to.

You can download AZW file and open it with Kindle for Mac/PC. Syncing the furthest page read works but it is considered as different book. I think, that Kindle for Mac/PC treats the book as EBOK instead of PDOC.

Does this mean that all my azw3 files that i sideloaded via calibre will end up in the cloud the next time i switch off the airplane mode on my kindle? or only those that i send via "sendtomykindle@kindle.com"?

This whole cloud shananigans are making me kinda paranoid...

Thanks!
I am not a big admirer of clouds, I'm afraid. I don't mind the ones made from hydrogen, though.

You beat me to it - I got the same email about an hour ago .

This is excellent news because it means that we can finally send KF8 files as personal docs.

As I wrote in other thread you could send KF8 files before as well in a dual/hybrid mobi file (mobi6+KF8). Also notice: You still have to upload file with Send to Kindle if you want to deliver files to Kindle devices. Uploaded files via Amazon Cloud are not visible on amazon.com/myk site.

I'm not sure I understand. I'm a little foggy on the whole Cloud Drive thing. It's completely different from the Kindle Library, correct? Last I heard, the Cloud Drive was not accessible from e-ink Kindles, only Kindle Fires? So does that mean this new Cloud Drive update really only affects Kindle Fire owners?

Yes, but you couldn't send "pure" KF8 files, which are what I always generate myself.

I haven't tried it myself, but I think I've heard people say that you can access the Cloud Drive from the Kindle's web browser. Can anyone confirm whether or not that's the case?

It doesn't work for me. I can log in into cloud drive but when I click "My Send-To-Kindle Docs" I see only "Loading" icon, nothing more. Anyway - all documents that sit there should also be in MYK and Cloud tab on Kindle Paperwhite.

I found out that deleting a file from Cloud Drive also deletes them from MYK.

The files stored in Cloud and in MYK are the same in different view, so if you delete file from Cloud it will be deleted from MYK and vice versa. Managing files from Cloud will be handy if you want bulk operation, for example delete multiple files. Also notice, Cloud has a Trash, so you can recover accidentally deleted file.

Can anyone see their documents in the Cloud Drive app on their phone? I'm using the app on iOS 7. I see that I now have 10gb of storage, but can only see my photos and videos. I have to go to the web version in order to see my documents.
