2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in content January 12, 2010
I really wanted to like the Kindle version of the Miami Herald, but I just cancelled my subscription and do not wish to pay for this Kindle newspaper.

My biggest gripe would have to be the duplication of articles. In any given Kindle edition, there are 2 or 3 duplicated articles, sometimes all under one section, sometimes spread out over several sections. I get done reading an article, hit next page, and am confronted with the same article under a different title causing me to question whether or not I actually hit next page. Ex: In today's newspaper, January 11, 2010, there is two articles in the Local section: "Miami-Dade plans to fight state's rejection of slots at MIA" and "Slot machines at Miami airport aren't dead yet." While reading the headline gives you a false sense of different articles, they are the same. I am not sure how the paper edition of the Miami Herald compares, but I find it to be a big waste of my time as the reader to read the same article over and over again.

The Miami Herald is the biggest newspaper available for the Florida keys, and the city of Miami itself is a decent size, yet the Kindle edition newspaper gives on average just 30 articles to cover local, state, and world. The sports section is the biggest section on the kindle boasting an average of 50 articles between Sports Wire and Sports. I want my newspaper to tell me news, not sports; that is what ESPN is for! A quick highlight of the sports coverage is more than sufficient.

The weekend addition of the newspaper is better with special sections like Travel, Neighbors, Editorial, and Home an Design, but still lacking in content. I really wish they would incorporate at least some classified ads (on the weekends only) or some comics.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Huge Disappointment January 16, 2010
The other reviews of the Miami Herald Kindle edition have been too generous. I agree that the multiple, duplicated stories from various Herald editions are annoying. The only good feature is that the Kindle edition actually has more local news than the print edition, by combining Broward and Miami-Dade editions along with Neighbors. Skimming articles is easier than with print editions. The biggest downside is that the articles are not well organized. There is no rhyme or reason of why an article pops up in the lead spot in each Kindle section, clearly not the most important article or one that would even warrant coverage on the print edition's front pages. The articles appear to be randomly loaded. The Kindle edition should have a list of headlines for each section (sort of like a front page# so the reader can pick and chose the articles he/she wants, and the ability to skim the others. Use of graphics used in the print edition articles would be helpful, along with more photos. The Miami Herald Kindle edition has set newspapers back several decades. Herald editors should take a look at their own electronic edition, website, and most importantly some of the other Kindle editions #such as the NY Times) to get some pointers. The price is way too high for such a low-quality product, and existing Herald print subscribers should be given a price break. My print subscription actually costs less than the Kindle edition's cost. I will be cancelling my Kindle subscription and will not return until it is markedly better.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a joke of a newspaper!! March 15, 2011
By Jerry M
I have been a print subscriber to this newspaper for 39 years, and started the Kindle edition 7 months ago, primarily because the print edition is delivered later and later. I have seen the Kindle edition content decline over these several months until the final travesty on 3/14 and 3/15. On 3/14, the entire "newspaper" was comprised of 6 sports stories, and today 3/15 it was comprised of 8 sports stories. That was it!! No national, local or business news.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs some work April 13, 2012
I've been subscribing to the Miami Herald for about six months now and I really enjoy the Kindle format. I had pretty much given up reading a newspaper and had resorted to using Google Reader and websites for news. I have a Kindle Fire and the format of the Miami Herald Kindle edition is nice with a good selection of full color photographs. It's also easy to see the headlines and a brief sentence about each article. What I really like are the lack of advertisements; particularly no huge stack of Sunday circulars to put in the recycle bin.

That's the good news. I read almost everything in the paper except the obituaries. And that's my first complaint. Every obituary appears twice in each edition of the Kindle. There doesn't appear to be any reason for this and they are separated so you have to manually skip over them both times. I don't have a problem with them being there once, but I hate having to see them all again twice at some random point. This needs to be fixed. As another reviewer mentioned, there is also an occasional duplication of stories, but that problems happens less often and usually it's a story that is repeated in the Broward section from the Miami-Dade stories.

My other complaint, which is actually more of a feature request, is that you can't forward stories or share stories. When I see something I want to share with a friend, I have to go find the story on the Miami Herald webpage and share it from there. Would be nice if there was a way to send a link directly from the electronic edition.

I'm planning to keep my subscription but I really hope they do something about the repeated obits.
