By Charles Green TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Nov. 2010
NOTE: Having tried 'The Times & The Sunday Times for the Kindle' on two previous occasions and found it to be a pretty substandard product both times I was asked in December 2012 by News International via the comments below this review to give it another go. Apparently they had made some significant improvements to the Kindle version of the paper that would address many of my criticisms.

Feeling it was only fair to give them another shot I purchased several copies of both the Times and The Sunday Times for the Kindle over a period of four weeks. I want to make it clear that I paid for these and was not given them by NI.

As a result of trying these editions of The Times and The Sunday Times I have increased my rating of the product from two to three stars. I have also added this note and a further update below. However I have left my original review and an update from May 2011 intact for clarity's sake.

I hope you find all of this helpful.

ORIGINAL REVIEW

I'm currently mid-way through my 14-day free trial of The Times and the Sunday Times on the Kindle. Based on my experience to date I will not be continuing with a paid subscription when the trial period ends.

Its not on the grounds of cost. £9.99 per month for a newspaper delivered automatically to my Kindle everyday, advertisement free, sounds like a pretty decent deal to me. Its certainly cheaper than buying the print version of any paper.

Nor is my unwillingness to fork out my money due to the editorial content of the paper. In terms of basic editorial content the Kindle version is identical to the main sections of the printed Times & Sunday Times.

The Times and The Sunday Times

First the good points
1 - Articles (in bulk) are a comfortable read for my old eyes. I would not subscribe to the web based nor the ipad versions as I have never found bulk reading comfortable on a screen (I was in the computer industry for over 30 years).
2 - The current day's issue is available first thing in the morning. My hardcopy newspaper frequently arrives a couple of hours later particularly at weekend and during school holidays.
3 - No adverts
4 - Potentially saves a lot of paper!

Teething problems
It is obvious that the Kindle version of The Times is derived from master files by an automatic conversion program. This is still being developed and results in some formatting errors:
1 - In general pictures and charts are not (generally) included. However the captions and some text from graphics (e.g. charts and lists) are included and often lumped together in a meaningless clump of text.
2 - There is an index called "View Section List" which list some of the major sections of "The Times" (e.g. News, Opinion, Features, Letters, etc.). Against each Section there is a count of articles. By selecting on this number each article is listed as title, author and the first couple of lines of text. Then you can select an article of interest. However the number of sections is small and the number of articles can be large (e.g. 38 under Features). Additional sections (e.g. Legal, Weekend, Gardening, etc.) would be helpful.

My issues
1 - Subscription is only for 1 Kindle device (unlike most books). So my wife cannot read one section while I read another (on separate Kindle readers).

Like others, I was looking forward to being able to read my newspaper in a more convenient and portable format. However, the Kindle version is so inferior to the paper (and internet) version that I don't think I shall continue with it. As others have noticed, QA is very poor. The most noticeable consequence is random text insertions and a lack of differentiation between sub-heads and body text. The total absence of graphical elements is more than a cosmetic thing - the big slugs of text, unbroken by anything else, are hard to consume. But the biggest thing for me is that chunks of the paper are missing. The Times doesn't included T2 (but, bizarrely, DOES include other suppliments like the property pages) and half the paper is missing from the ST.

If I subscribe to the internet digital edition, I also get the mobile one. The Kindle version seems to be stand alone (so I have to pay again for digital editions in other formats). On top of this, I still get - and pay for - the printed edition.

Not enough content - or value IMHO.

I have been reading the Times on Kindle for about three weeks. I was in South Africa during that time and liked getting the Times each morning. However, at times I found the presentation difficult to follow and felt that the experience was somehow inadequate. So today, 18th January 2011, after returning to the UK, I compared the physical newspaper to the Kindle version.

I accept that the Kindle will look different from the physical newspaper but my review revealed that the Kindle version is dramatically inferior. The newspaper editors have organised the paper in a way that they believe will be logical to the reader and easiest to follow. The individual compiling the Kindle version has no such interest or care.

The Kindle presentation is, of necessity, a sequence of articles. In the paper there may be a main topic with subsidiary articles providing more information or a different slant. In Kindle the subsidiary articles are sometimes presented first without the reference point of the main article e.g. the article in the Sports section entitled `Man who created the monster has no regrets' is preceded by two subsidiary articles called `How game has piled on the pounds' and `The players who set the weekly-wage benchmarks'. The subsidiary articles do not mean as much until one has read the main article.

Articles in Kindle generally follow the order that they are in the paper but many are in a completely different order. Articles that are grouped together on the same page of the paper because of a logical connection are sometimes separated by many other articles. So on pages 6 and 7 there are four articles all linked to David Cameron. In Kindle these four articles are separated by seven other unrelated articles.
