1.0 out of 5 stars You can do better than this. December 1, 2009
1 December 2009

I have been waiting for a kindle version of the Post Dispatch for over a year. So when I updated my kindle last week, I discovered that there is now a kindle version of my hometown paper. So I subscribed immediately.

I was quickly disappointed.

The point of an electronic version of a newspaper is to replace the "meat" of the paper version. Due to limitations of the technology, there are currently limits to what can be placed in the electronic version but at a minimum, all of the non-graphical content should be included and if possible the photos associated with an article, like the front page, editorial, regional news, etc. The current version of the kindle version has a selection of the frontpage, everyday, and Sports sections. I am still finding it necessary to go to [...] in order to get St. Louis news.

A good example of kindle versions of a paper is the San Jose Mercury News, and the The Oklahoman. Both of these papers include all of their print content, including regional news, but also includes some articles only found on their web pages. They also have their papers priced at a lower price.

I really want the Post Dispatch on my Kindle, but this is not worth $6.99 a month. Unlike most internet users, kindle users typically do not mind paying for their news, but you have to provide value for the content. If a user still has to go to the web page to catch what they miss in the Kindle version, then at some point they are going to question why they are paying a premium for something they get for free online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good first version December 5, 2009
I have been pleasantly surprised by the layout and content of the Kindle version of this paper. I travel so it is very nice to have the paper delivered electronically wherever I am. I will continue to subscribe. There are two key missing features, both in the Sports section. First, it would be nice to have the home teams' upcoming game dates/times as is present in the print version. And second, it would be nice to have the league records/standings for each sport as is available in the print version.

3.0 out of 5 stars good start April 30, 2010
can actually see improvements in the last months. but 2 issues remain;
one, I usually cannot download till like 10 am - why not at 5 when my neighbors get their hard copies?

two, often, the word spacing is awkward- like " one day" becoming "on eday" which can stop you in your tacks while you try to figure out what the heck they are talking about

1.0 out of 5 stars There are better editions out there for less money December 10, 2010
By AC75
I love getting the paper on my Kindle, but I canceled my subscription this morning. Why? First, it's almost 7am and the Kindle edition just became available a few minutes ago. Second, the Post Dispatch offers a full-color, pictures included, every section included pdf e-edition of their paper every day for less money than the no-picture, sections missing, badly formatted Kindle edition.

Head's up, STL PD! I am willing to pay more money to get your e-edition on my Kindle without having to transfer/download it myself. It doesn't have to be in color, it just has to be on time and have all the sections in it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Paper but Inconsistent Content September 29, 2010
I have been receiving this newspaper for three days and have been getting inconsistent sections each day. For example:

Day 1: Front Page, Everyday, Opinion, and Sports
Day 2: Everyday, Opinion, and Sports
Day 3: Front Page, Community, Everyday, Let's Eat, Opinion, and Sports

I plan to keep this paper until my free trial ends. Hopefully this will get straighten out. If not, I will try another paper.

4.0 out of 5 stars I've really enjoyed it September 2, 2011
By Kevin C
Looking through most of these reviews, I felt the need submit one that is more updated.

I've thoroughly enjoyed my subscription so far. The interface is easy to navigate, the content is all included, and the price is very reasonable! Compared to some of the other national newspaper subscriptions I've tried, I think this easily ranks among the best. This is the only way I have of reading my local news while I'm on the road (I travel often for work).

Yes, there are often a few grammatical idiosyncrasies, but they really are not that bad (a few words that were clearly hyphenated due to text line-breaks, and a few spacing mistakes. This is really not that noticeable and does not detract from the reading experience.

My only hesitation to give 5 stars comes from:

1. Sports - While the sections are included, I wish there was a daily recap of what the local teams did. Sometimes I just want the box score or highlights, not the entire game write up. Also, it is sometimes difficult to determine what the sports articles are about from just the headline. If there were any way to group them by sport or by team from the main page navigation, that would be very helpful in correcting this.

2. "Digests" - Scattered throughout the printed paper are "digest" blurbs about world and local events, or otherwise brief updates. The Kindle version has these scattered throughout the sections, much as the printed edition does. It's crazy that they don't pull these together into one section of "digests" instead of the 5 scattered they have throughout the edition.

However, for $40 off the delivery cost and instant delivery to anywhere in the country, it is absolutely worth the $6.99 / month.

Very poor paper but only one in St. Louis. At times you would think they are trying to hurt the community. I would not buy the paper if there was another one.
