3.0 out of 5 stars Good version but Kindle navigation is awful, 5 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Message Remix New Testament: 2010 Student Planner Edition (Kindle Edition)
We use the Message in our Bible study group as an alternative reading. It's often very helpful and sometimes quite amusing. I bought the Kindle version so a partially-sighted member could read it. She finds a large font with white on black quite readable compared to a printout.
But the navigation is - as others have said (unfortunately I couldn't download the sample and hoped they were talking about version 1) - is awful. And this from Navpress, a part of the Navigators! Just try the NIV to see how easy navigation can be. I reckon I could find a passage on my Kindle NIV faster than anyone with a paper version. The best I have managed with the Message is:
- Go to table of contents (4 clicks).
- Flip through pages to get hyperlink to required book (these cover 5 pages)
- The hyperlink takes you to an introduction on most books which you must also flip through. (The intro to Psalms is 5 pages.)
- Then you come to chapter hyperlinks - one per line! So the Psalms links cover 7 pages!
How many clicks in total? I think to get to the start of any Psalm about 14 on average!
By comparison, the NIV has a 'finder' link on every page. This takes you to one page containing links to all books. Each link takes you to the start of the book preceded by links to all the chapters, plus an 'info' link that takes you to an introduction.
Total of 3 clicks to any chapter!

Come on Navpress, get your act together. You didn't really put much effort into this at all, did you?
