Love the fact that Backpacker made it to the Kindle. These guys have been around forever and nobody covers the outdoors like them. Great gear advice, super hiking destinations, and tons of other survival and outdoor skills content packed in. If you like Backpacker, this digital version does the trick.
Great content and photography. Improving on light weight backpacking. Could have more gear reviews from cottage industry products. I gave it 4 stars because they are too political. I get enough of that in every day life. Let's stick to backpacking.
As a longtime reader of Backpacker, I'm thrilled to start seeing it on a tablet in full-color glory. For someone who travels a lot outdoors -- or wants to -- it's almost as good as being there in person. I've been drolling over my Kindle as I flip through places that are now going on my hiking life list. And you also get all the how-to advice and gear testing that's in the magazine. Can't wait to see what they do with maps and video.
Not sure about the other review but this worked as advertised for me on my kindle fire. Text view worked as advertised as well. Only my second downloaded magazine so not a power User by any means. Got what I paid for. Not a normal reviewer either... just seemed odd so trying to balance the scales.
Not impressed with the version for the Kindle Fire. Font is microscopic with no way to enlarge so you end up zooming in-out and all over read the pages. Pictures cannot be clicked and viewed full screen....again, must zoom in to see the big picture. Cannot click on the numerous ads to see more or be taken to the product site. No separate windows open for map views. I've only subscribed to a few magazines thus far so I could just be spoiled by NatGeo which has all of the above designed into the Kindle Fire version. This magazine just seems like a scanned and uploaded version.
