This review is from: The Guardian and the Observer (Kindle Edition)
Saturday edition is pretty much replicated in full on the kindle, and finding articles is straightforward: A menu on the left of the screen listing sections, then a menu on the right of the screen listing articles - you can either progress page-by-page through the section or use the navigation key to skip to the next article.
Articles include some photos/illustrations, but not to the detriment of the text.
My one complaint (on day one) is that the weekly quiz in the weekend section is not present, nor the Michael Holden or Mick Bunnage sections in the Guide.
If you are a Guardian reader with a Kindle, I would recommend you experience the 14 day trial - as far as I'm concerned, I'll be sticking with the subscription as I am in awe of the work the Guardian does in exposing establishment miscreants...
Edit: After three issues I'm still impressed, but here is info for prospective buyers: As standard each issue is kept for 7 days and then deleted; if you want to save a particular issue then it can be saved for posterity. Individual articles from each issue can be saved to a separate folder (one which also contains bookmarks and notes inserted in books... room for improvement later on hopefully.)
No further realistic complaints; it would be nice to be able to access cartoons and puzzles but this is restricted by the format/technology: for a one-off (5 second?) download in the morning, it matches what the online BBC news website delivers for most of the day.....
Further edit: Michael Holdens` All Ears column is now included, as is the weekly quiz in the Weekend section. What is odd is that as of 21st July the Technology section is not included in the data download.
Edit the third: I mistakenly assumed that the Science and Technology section was still published on a Thursday - it's not in the printed edition, but is available online.
Also, for a period of three weeks the weekend section was missing from the download version, but that has now been reinstated.

Agree with this review, really helpful.
I just want to warn people who like myself start their saturday with the weekend magazine....
Since last weekend's edition the section Weekend is gone so I can't read the magazine from cover to cover as I could before. As per print edition the magazine used to start with Tim Dowling. Now I can't even find the article on the Kindle edition. I wonder why they made this change....

Brani, I noticed this last week - not good. Not been able to find a method of asking the Guardian about it, although I haven't looked that hard as yet. I will update if I find anything out, but if anybody is reading this feel free to update as appropriate!

There are no adverts, as part of the deal... £9.99/month buys you the text of the newspapers, as a book, on your Kindle. If you want adverts, buy the Guardian as printed and available at a newsagent near you.
