1.0 out of 5 stars No Good For UK November 26, 2009
This UK paper is $9.99 a month for Americans but over twice the price if you live in the UK, plus Americans get images but UK customers do not. Well done Amazon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why not deliver from UK for UK subscribers? January 29, 2010
I am amazed that Amazon continues to deliver UK newspapers to Uk customers via the US and thereby denies readers the ability to receive pictures which are available for US subscribers. Until this is rectified I will not be buying a Kindle and subscribing to an over priced electronic service; i'll continue with my paper sub!

1.0 out of 5 stars why is the ipad version cheaper? June 7, 2010
I have been subscribing to the times on the kindle for a week and am happy with the product itself but can't believe that the ipad version is only £9.99 (and that obviously includes pictures etc). I contacted the times and asked why kindle users are being asked to pay more than double that price and I was told that they "were not able to disclose that information"! I wont be continuing my subscription

2.0 out of 5 stars feels like reading a tabloid October 17, 2008
I had high expectations for The Times when I subscribed. Now after two weeks, I've canceled my subscription. Astonishingly, reading The Times feels like reading a tabloid paper sprinkled sporadically with occasional real news items. I suspect the problem is that the paper edition uses fonts, placement, etc., to make it obvious which articles are important versus which articles are fluff intended to be merely humorous or quirky. In the Kindle edition however, it is impossible to know which headline refers to a meaty article versus which headline when clicked will lead to a dumb little blurb about a pig farmer who did something interesting with or to his pig. Due to the poor layout of this newspaper in its Kindle edition, I don't think it is sufficient to read The Times via the Kindle to be well informed.
My top Kindle newspaper choices, to all of which I subscribe, are The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. I found The Times not to be in the same league as these other, truly world class papers, in large part because the other newspapers took the time and trouble to format their Kindle editions in ways that make them easy to know which articles are the ones that represent real news stories.
My top Kindle newspaper choice for a non-United States subscription is the Irish Times. I have an Irish barber who assures me the Irish Times is a very well respected newspaper. I enjoy the Irish Times and agree it is a good newspaper, especially as a means to get a flavor for the European point of view on things.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish in the UK January 30, 2010
By Dave S
The formatting is terrible. None of the sub-headlines are in bold so it's difficult to tell they're not part of the text. There are no pictures. At $22.99 it's about twice the price of an online subscription to the Times Online website.

What's good about it is that it's delivered wirelessly to your Kindle every day, but that's not enough to justify the price or overcome the other shortcomings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad....but... December 11, 2009
By Gav
I live in the UK and use the kindle most days. I've been trying out the Times subscription for a while, but i find it lacks a little something. What is that? Pictures. I think the times is a great idea on the kindle, but with the lack of pictures and tables it just lacks that final bit. Is this "the times" that is not driving the pictures/tables out of their CMS system ? If it is - come on news international, i think you need to start deliverying the pictures as it helps with the experience and engages your audience. I've downloaded books with tables/pictures in them and it adds to the experience. The times images are normally high quality so lets get 'em on the kindle as i might stick with the subscription and tell my friends.....oh and when i mean the pictures, i mean photo's/tables and the great cartoons that are feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not delivered until 07:00 January 4, 2010
By Mark
If you live in the UK, The Times is not delivered to your Kindle until 07:00. This is despite the fact that you can usually get paper copies of the first edition in Central London from 23:00 the night before.

It's a nice idea, but if I can't get it for my journey to work, then it's back to the hardcopy newspapers for me.

As a Times reader of many years, I recently subscribed on my Kindle. Mostly this is because I've now moved into the middle of the middle of nowhere. The nearest outlet selling the Times is a 30 minute drive away, and not in a direction I often travel. So it's great to be able to get the Times. It's true that you don't get the pictures (despite the comments of other reviewers, the images aren't there at all -- it's nothing to do with the country, since I'm in the US), but they don't make a huge difference to the experience.

You get the Times, a great paper, but sadly not a great Kindle edition. I can live without the pictures (they'd be nice though). I can live with the price. I really like the navigation, which lets you 'flick' through the paper by section and browse headlines. What annoys me most often is the lacklustre conversion to kindle format -- some articles have lists or tables, and these are constantly mangled. Many articles start with the location of a report or the name of the reporter, and these aren't differentiated by any kind of formatting.

And then there's the lack of the magazine. To be fair, there's a lot of the magazine that would really bloat the download if it was formatted like the paper copy, but equally, to not send the article text is shabby. The Sunday Times is/was/should always be a monster of a paper - the kindle version can be finished by mid-morning (with few distractions).

In summary - I love the paper, and the articles are the same as you'd get in the paper edition, but the overall attention to detail in the formatting for kindle really lets this newspaper down. If you can easily get the paper edition, do. If, like me, you want the Times but can't find it, this is still worth getting.
