To counter some negative reviews that I've read, be aware that with Amazon you probably shouldn't trial any Kindle subscription if you're using your Kindle as a "stand alone" device, say having bought one in a shop... you'll need to access your online Amazon account to cancel, which can be time-consuming and tricky to do via the Kindle's browser. That is not an issue particular to the Guardian; its an Amazon issue, and I think they need to ensure that you should have a simple "cancel subscription" option, equivalent to the "add to collection" feature when you right-navigate a book's title.
What you get is an advert-free equivalent of the print edition of the newspaper, which will be delivered by Amazon to your Kindle when the paper goes to press (so long as your Kindle can receive it). Like a newspaper, and unlike the Guardian's website, it does not update itself during the day. One advantage of that is that it's on your Kindle, like a book, so you don't need a wifi or mobile phone connection to read it. Having subscribed since last year, I've seen it improve in content and ease of navigation, and find myself able to flick through it to what I want to read first, then back to other items, as I'd do with the 'real' thing.
Personally, I've switched easily from buying the paper to this subscription, and find this format suits me.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
The advantage of the Kindle version is that it retains the excitement of a newspaper dropping through your door - I was surprised to find I do get a little thrill from switching on my Kindle to check the latest edition first thing in the morning, even though much of the Guardian's content has been put up the night before on the web.
However, the monotonous layout - with only a few, not very sharp b/w photos - does seem very retro, and takes the edge off the actual excitement involved in reading news stories which I get from the internet and actual print newspapers. On the web, it's much easier to find what you're particularly interested in.
I've really gone for the Kindle version because the Kindle's e-ink is much kinder on my eyes - and because I wanted to continue to financially support the Guardian's excellent journalism. Although the Guardian's content can't compare with the days when it employed far more staff, it would be an enormous loss to UK journalism if it did go, given the right-wing leanings of most of our press. For that I'll happily give it four stars and continue doing my bit to keep the Guardian in our journalistic mix..
It is worth experiencing the Kindle edition to recognise those features of a 21st century newspaper or the BBC News website or Guardian online that we now take for granted and you will certainly miss on the Kindle edition such as:
1. Photos add so much value to news stories - obviously b/w not colour with the Kindle - but they seem irrelevant on the Kindle and don't add value to the article at all.
2. Headlines, sub headlines, pull-quotes, boxes with basic explanations/specific details and photos/images of the journalist that allow you to dip into articles as your interest in the article is either raised or lowered by quick reading/scanning of all of these. All absent on the Kindle edition.
3. The Guardian's statistical charts, diagrams and maps bring stories alive - absent on the Kindle edition. You'd have no idea where that Norwegian island, Utoeya, was with the Kindle edition.
4. Unexpected missing items: TV listings, weather, crosswords and other puzzles, tables and all those tiny news items throughout the newspaper that you scan and only read if interested in. To me the Kindle version of the Guardian/Observer is a subset of the newspaper and I'd suggest making this absolutely clear to potential readers.
5. The key colour photos: particularly the centre page colour photo - spectacular but can't be matched except as a large flat screen image. The cover of G2 that either interests you or not in the major article/s in G2.
