2.0 out of 5 stars Content Good, But Format Poor 9 Sep 2010
By Sean
I love my Kindle for reading books - where you basically read form cover to cover - but have decided that it's just not a 'newspaper' device. The content of this paper is pretty good, but the format of the Kindle's newspaper reader makes it so hard to browse and scan through pages. There are very few pictures and it's not a particularly rewarding read. I find my iPad a much nicer device to read news on because I can flip through pages and view pictures like a real paper, plus you get the bonus of video and audio material as well as text articles (although the iPad's not as good for reading books, especially outside!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 28 Sep 2010
The London Evening Standard is a free Newspaper of course - so even charging a few pounds for the Kindle edition seems a bit steep. However, it must be acknowledged that the printed version makes its money through advertising, and the Kindle edition is advert-free. The latest edition arrives in the early afternoon, and is thus more up to date than the morning Newspapers which are compiled overnight.

Whilst the Kindle Edition may be a cut-down version of the printed version, it is by and large a good and comprehensive read. This subscription receives my qualified recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Going back to black-and-white newspapers! 2 Sep 2010
I subscribe to it because I'm not in the streets in the evening to pick it up. It's a good newspaper, and I'm paying to have it delivered, that's all. I actually read more news now, due to its format on Kindle. Ads are minimal (there are some sponsored news - you know they are - but there's no classified section). Minimal pictures, but those available are very crisp. I actually like the feel of the black-and-white pictures. Font size (or layout) is changeable. You can also skim through articles easily. Maybe we do get less content in the electronic version, but I spend at least a solid hour every night reading it. There seems to be a lot to go through. Overall, great! Will continue my subscription after the 14-day trial.London Evening Standard

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, but steep at 20p per copy 4 Oct 2010
By Eddie
Whilst I found the Kindle edition to be clear and reasonably easy to read, I feel that charging 20p per electronic copy when the paper edition is free is a bit steep. Compare this to the Daily Telepgraph where a print subscription is 6.50 per WEEK and the monthly Kindle edition is only 9.99

It is also obvious that not a lot of time or effort has gone into creating a specific Kindle edition - they have just dumped in the newspaper text and a small selection of photos. This can been seen from many references to pictures that aren't there, captions for the (missing) photos added to the end of the articles and articles appearing in the wrong order (for example a comment piece/sidebar appearing before the article it relates to). A quick spell check would not go amiss either!

If the ES produced a good Kindle edition I would have considered paying a small monthly fee but getting a poorly edited edition for 4 per month is not for me.

Sorry ES, but as a long time reader of your paper you have not converted me to your Kindle edition - which is a shame as it is much more environmentaly friendly than all the free paper editions left on tubes, trains, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping Up Standards 13 Aug 2011
I have been receiving the Evening Standard for over six months and find it sometimes controversial and sometime a little one sided in its views, but never dull. For what it costs it is delivered to my Kindle where ever I am around the world and by flicking over articles that are of no or very little interest does not make you feel that you have to read them because the paper is costing so much each day likewise if you miss one days reading (which I have not since subscribing) is only costing 14p. Yes there are a few photos included with each edition a few more would be helpful but not essential as I am not getting the Standard for its pictures but its news contents. It's such an easy read, most days being able to complete in a lunch time. So I would say to anyone interested to either start getting a newspaper delivered to their Kindle daily as a stepping stone or an additional paper why not get the Standard.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tad expensive but I'm enjoying it 22 Oct 2010
I have to say when I signed up to the free trial I was not sure what to expect. I then compared the Kindle version with the paper edition and found that every single story was in the Kindle version. The only omission seems to be graphics and pictures. On-page fact tables also don't translate well to the Kindle version as they just look like ordinary pages which gets a bit confusing.

The price is a little expensive considering the paper edition is free, but compared to the other Kindle newspaper offerings (10 pounds plus) it is better value. My logical head is saying why pay 4 GBP for something that is free on paper, but my heart is saying I do absolutely LOVE the fact that it gets delivered automatically to my kindle while I'm at work and I don't have to go fishing around in a tube station for one when I should be catching my train.

In conclusion, if you value the convenience of automated delivery, it is worth the 4GBP per month, as you do get all the same info (minus pictures) as the paper edition. It also means you get to read it in a packed train carriage without needing elbow room.
