2.0 out of 5 stars Okay for local news, but not as polished as others November 24, 2008
Years ago we subscribed to the paper editions of the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post at separate occasions. When I found out that I could subscribe to the electronic versions of these papers, I jumped at the chance to have these two delivered to my Kindle. I had been reading the Post on my Kindle for about three months, and only subscribed to the Sun within the past week for more local news, but I've already cancelled my subscription to the Sun. Why? I've only been able to compare it to the Kindle edition of the Washington Post, but the overall feel of the material is markedly different between these two periodicals. I know that the Sun has gone through a redesign or two since we last subscribed to the paper version, so I'm not sure if it's an attempt to carry over the style of the paper to this new medium, but it's very odd to see some links for headlines and items as "Typical Capitalized Headlines", while links for other items are in "entirely lowercase text"; it's a bit distracting to see the style flip-flop so often. Content wasn't as structured (national / local / business / etc.), and felt like articles were mixed in together, so the overall flow was a bit weird -- I never really had an idea of which section I was in at the time. Finally, even though it's pointed out how certain syndicated content wouldn't be included, was there really a need to include things like the intro to the sudoku puzzle even when the sudoku puzzle itself was excluded? Overall it felt like the Sun was hastily put together, and hopefully it can be restructured and be made more enjoyable to read in the near future.

3.0 out of 5 stars As good as the newsprint edition August 18, 2009
A couple of years ago, the Baltimore Sun was a fine newspaper. About a year ago, Tribune decided to more or less gut the paper. It still covers Baltimore and the region well enough, but there's little national or international coverage. The Monday and Tuesday editions are hardly worth the paper they're printed on. And this is where Kindle is such a magnificent device. Why waste the paper and ink, not to mention the delivery driver's gas, when the paper can be easily read on a Kindle? With a subscription, the paper's right there waiting for you when you wake up; no need to drudge out into the rain or cold. If you're getting the Sun, it might as well be by Kindle. I've seen no discrepancy in what I see in Kindle as opposed to what's in the printed edition; I even get an additional section (Howard County once a week, in addition to Anne Arundel, not that I read that section). By having the Kindle subscription, I also have a sense that I'm contributing to keeping the paper alive by paying for the subscription as opposed to reading it for free online. I hope more people will subscribe one way or another; that's the only way the paper will become strong like it used to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most Kindle newspapers September 9, 2011
The Baltimore Sun is great for a couple of things. 1) Keeping up with Maryland and local Baltimore news and 2) Sports.
Unlike some (or most?) Kindle newspapers, the Sun has baseball box scores, league leaders and standings. Other newspapers I've read on Kindle don't have them.
It's heavy on sports. I can tell that even without seeing the print edition. A simple glance at the table of contents will tell you that. I'd guess that they are leaving out the national stories, since the Kindle Sun is almost all Baltimore and Maryland news. Some reviews have complained about that, but I find it a better use of the Kindle format. For those of us who are interested in Baltimore news, the Orioles and Ravens, the Sun is a perfect choice.
I subscribe and will continue to do so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Typos and poor use of the medium April 27, 2009
I was extremely disappointed. Many of the stories contained typo's and dropped words. Far too much emphasis on the sports section. Other Kindle based newspapers had better formatting and used the medium more effectively. Some strangeness with the navigation. I found I was skipping over articles. I didn't see this kind of behavior in other newspapers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Howard County Reader August 16, 2011
By Juan V.
The Kindle version of this newspaper is at it's best on Sunday for me as a resident of Howard County. The coverage of Baltimore & local issues is good and the overall format is easy to read. There are at least one picture per article and the focus is heavy on Maryland. It is not a newspaper to read for a full covering of all events world wide, but a very pleasant morning read over breakfast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greeat when serving overseas December 5, 2011
its baltimores news in a ok layout. the layout is readable and useful but it feels like somethings missing. the lack of pictures is the biggest con in my opinion. its rare to see photos in the kindle version.

its the local news which i can read from half way across the globe. thats why i gave it four stars. i feel the price per issue is fair because i only get to download an issue when im inport. this was written from my kindle

2.0 out of 5 stars Paper is barely adequate
Paper is a mere pretender of its former self. More advertising than news. Delivery to home is inconsistent. If not for Ravens and Orioles I would probably cancel.

Good coverage of local area. Charging $2.00 per read online is somewhat over the top! Also, their coverage of local sports is quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baltimore Sun
The Baltimore Sun is an excellent newspaper. I love how they express the sports games. I also like how they show other games, not just oriole games!!
