5.0 out of 5 stars Herald and Sunday Herald Kindle 4 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase
At last a Scottish newspaper on the Kindle. Used to get the Independent on Kindle, but the complete lack of Scottish perspective stories meant I eventually ditched it. Refreshing to have a the Herald and Sunday Herald available to read so easily with the a mixture of UK, international and Scottish stuff. You get both Herald and Sunday herald on this subscription. I am only an occasional buyer of newspapers, mostly the Scotsman or Independent and Sunday Herald (which is excellent). The Herald Kindle version seems to have more to read than its broadsheet print version, although I'm sure this is is not the case (not a fan or broadsheet formats any more). I can only compare with the Kindle Independent offering, the format, navigation and layout is the same. All round I am reading more 'Herald newsprint' because of the Herald on Kindle and love the Scottish perspective news not previously available from any other Kindle offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great coverage of Scottish news and Poltics 31 Jan. 2013
Great coverage of Scottish news and politics, also nicely formatted and much easier to read than the massive printed version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great newspaper, good format 19 July 2012
I have no idea what the other two reviewers are griping about. I am, admittedly, a fan of the Herald (and the Scotsman ) due to the excellent well-researched and intelligent content. However I am sceptical of copy-and-paste e-editions that are poorly formatted and ill-considered. Thankfully this is not the case here.

The e-Herald is helpfully divided into appropriate sections with headlines that can be clicked to reveal the full article. The content is as full as the paper copy and there are even pictures on some articles. The sport section is as full as I wold expect although I am interested to know if league tables will be published when the football and rugby seasons recommence.

The only items missing are the crossword, the cartoon, and an unintelligable Glaswegian touting the latest edition on Sauchiehall Street.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gone downhill 29 Jan. 2015
I have had a subscription for 3 years but will be cancelling it today. Previously the number of articles was reasonable and they were clearly split into categories which made it easy to find content. Now although the categories are still there it is pot luck what you will find in any given section. The number of articles hss also decreased significantly. I think it is clear that the kindle version is a token effort and perhaps small numbers of subscribers means they are not taking it seriously. The other digital versions are much better and half the price so I will continue to subscribe. Pity - I enjoyed using the kindle to read my paper. I have contacted them previously about theses issues and possible improvements with no successful outcome. Update : on the day I submit my review there is a vast improvement in both content and categorisation. Shame it cannot be consistent.

As a Yes campaigner in the recent referendum my husband was gratified to see that one Newspaper [ Sunday Herald ] was displaying a balanced view in a democratic Society
He used to believe that Newspapers reported the news in a balanced fashion
Since the Referendum he now only purchases the Sunday Herald which is informative and balanced ,with a high standard of reporters and articles.

4.0 out of 5 stars None 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase
So good to get a Scotttish perspective anywhere I am in the world! Thanks Herald, I know more about what is happening in Scotland while living in Uganda than my dad in Glasgow. I would appreciate a 'weather' section, which is missing. There is plenty on Scottish football, though no table to let you know a team's standing. As with most of the media in Scotland, I am not convinced of unbiased writing on the independence debate. Otherwise, I feel much closer to home with a downloaded copy of the Herald in my hand.

1.0 out of 5 stars Prefer the iPad version 15 Aug. 2012
By M. King
The Kindle version costs the same as the Ipad version on a monthly basis, yet the iPad gets all the supplements & the full paper. I really hate reading books on the Ipad, and this is where the Kindle excels, but it's the opposite with magazines/newspapers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like it!
Following the referendum debate it's great as The Herald is "no" and the Sunday Herald is "yes" - best of both worlds ;-) The kindle format works well for me.
