This seemed like a good app but it requires a paid subscription to view. If you don't already have a subscription then you must pay a monthly fee through Amazon. Current rate is $12.87 a month. Eh. I will find the news for free elsewhere.

Have been one who has enjoyed The Scotsman on the 'Net for a number of years. This quality Scottish newspaper, published in Edinburgh, has been around since the early 1800s, and in 2012 was named Newspaper of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards. I've been getting their email alerts every morning at about 1:00 AM EDT, and their stories and links have been a welcome addition to my morning news gleaning.

The Scotsman as a Kindle Tablet Edition is well formatted, and the content covers everything from in-depth Scottish news, along with interesting analysis from the UK and around the world, all from an interesting Scottish perspective. The photos are excellent, and it offers a fascinating perspective on Scots history, heritage and culture. There have been recent articles on the topic of the upcoming 2014 referendum for Scottish independence, which could split up the United Kingdom with all of the political and financial ramifications that we rarely see in the mainstream press.

Of course it wouldn't be truly Scottish without a close look at sports from a Scottish perspective, and rugby, football (soccer) and golf are covered here. And there's the annual Haggis Hunt, a witty diversion that's sponsored by The Scotsman, where you report your haggis sightings from various 'Haggis Cams' to Chief Ghillie Farquhar Farquharson.

As of the date of this review, the 1.0.0 version of this Kindle Fire app is a reasonable 10.0MB in size, and it will download in under 90 seconds. After reading the disclaimer screens, the setup is easy, and the eight different content channels are responsive and easy to explore.
