2.0 out of 5 stars FT - Hit and miss, 16 Feb 2011
This review is from: Financial Times - UK Edition (Kindle Edition)
I have downloaded and read the kindle edition of the FT for the last 6 weeks and I find that whilst the sections, navigation and text of the articles are good, the electronic FT often suffers from poor pagination and missing tables. A good example is the money section article on with profits pensions this last weekend, which on the Kindle was missing the tables of best and worst providers. Tables often present key summary or supporting data, and without it the text only versions lacked impact.

The poor level of pagination and the level of missing pictures and tables leaves me wondering if the Kindle FT is produced by automated conversion. The production of the Kindle version of the FT could and should be a lot better quality.

At last some improvements. Last week saw the introduction of a better layout for the index to sections, which makes it much easier to review whats on offer in each daily edition. Still a basic lack of editing going on here, how can you release this each day with out a book check - page by page eyball - by a human.
