Love it! Beautiful on Kindle Fire!
on November 22, 2011
I am absolutely thrilled with my digital copy of Food & Wine. I love the fact that I can take dozens of magazines with me everywhere I go.
Food & Wine is an exceptional magazine both in print and digital formats. I love the fact that the digital copy isn't a bunch of text with a few pictures sprinkled here and there like some digital subscriptions. I am big on aesthetics, and this one looks exactly like the print version, including the gorgeous, full-color layouts I've come to love from print magazines. THANK GOODNESS they didn't elect to make it all text! I will be canceling my subscriptions to most magazines that don't give us the beautiful layout, because I just don't find them pleasing to read.
It is a bit difficult to have to zoom in to read the text in the page view layout, but what could one expect on such a small device? The Kindle Fire is made for portability, and it accomplishes exactly that. The fortunate thing is that there is a text view for people who don't enjoy the print layout. I guess some people might not know how to access this on the Kindle Fire, but it's INCREDIBLY easy. All you have to do is tap the screen with the magazine open and select "Text View" instead of "Page View". Easy to do, and it makes it simpler to read if you don't care about seeing the pretty layout.
