Product Description

"The International Magazine of Events," or Time, is considered America's first weekly news periodical, founded in 1923. It covers a wide range of subject matter from politics to the entertainment industry. Since the magazine's inception, Time has been known for its annual "Person of the Year" issue. It is oftentimes controversial, counting Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin among it previous recipients, recognizing the individual or group that has had the most impact on the world stage.

The Kindle Edition of Time contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Omissions July 24, 2009
By J. Cole
Format:Kindle Edition
The straw that broke the camel's back for me was that the magazine cover highlighted 3 stories including one about Walter Cronkite. But the Kindle edition of the issue does not include the story. I can forgive (but not love) the lack of graphics, but when the cover stories aren't even included, then I wonder what I'm paying for.

3.0 out of 5 stars The missing illustrations aren't quite the problem July 13, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, I mean, yes they are, if that's the sort of thing you like. What creates a problem for me with regard to the artwork is that there are numerous times where the text will refer to an illustration or chart that isn't there. That's the part that bugs me, because the effort to digitize the whole magazine for the Kindle overlooks the fact that once in awhile you may NEED the accompanying artwork. Tables, for instance, are converted to text and are basically unreadable unless you really want to study them.

Time also has a quick overview of events (it's called "Pop Chart") of the week which are laid out on a scale from "Shocking" to "Shockingly Predictable". We get this scale as a list, so we don't really get the feel for the scale itself.

But graphics aside, you do get the entire magazine and a good depth of coverage on some of the bigger issues that you wouldn't get in a daily newspaper.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huh? February 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Even with low expectations I was still disappointed in this. And now a price increase??....$36 per year for the inferior Kindle version, or $20 per year for the full color physical magazine with photos and illustrations? Huh??

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad. February 8, 2008
By Bob
Format:Kindle Edition
No, it doesn't have the beautiful Time photographs. Yes, it is a weekly magazine. No, the kindle version lacks shiny glossy pages you can thumb through. It does, however, contain the great articles that Time is known for. I have actually found that I'm more inclined to read it cover to cover than I would be if it had the photos to distract me. At the price (roughly 38 cents an issue) it can't be beat.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Electronic Version Ever November 22, 2007
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a rather embarrassing electronic version of Time Magazine. There are NO pictures, no charts, no illustrations. Instead whenever you run into an article that has these in any decent amount, they've inserted an entry telling you to go get a PDF or print version. The salvation here is that their MOBILE web site at least has some images (even if impossibly small) and seems better formatted and organized. It looks and feels like some cheap RSS reader collected this rather than being an electronic version of the magazine. To fix it they should include all major article pictures, along with a full-screen copy of the cover. Time without pictures, is like the Braille-edition of Playboy. No wonder it is just $1.49 a month.

1.0 out of 5 stars Passable - but not good enough for a price hike February 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Time has addressed some of the concerns previous reviewers have brought up - there are no more truncated articles, and there are occasionally a few pictures with the articles. The writing remains diverse and interesting. I find that the lack of charts, ads, and huge picture spreads allows me to better focus on the writing, and the messages the authors wish to convey.

However, it still lacks a table of contents. I still feel that some articles are missing on occasion, although I don't have a print edition to compare it to.

So, for a $1.49 a month magazine (just under the price of a print subscription), it's decent. But at $2.99? Nearing double the price of a print subscription, with all the color pictures and charts, and knowledge that you are, in fact, getting the whole text of every article published? Just not worth it.

Format:Kindle Edition
I have been subscribing to Time magazine for 10 years now and I just recently bought my Kindle and was excited to subscribe to the Time magazine Kindle edition. I flipped through the issues and saw no pictures at all. I was really disappointed by the lack of effort on the part of Time magazine. I can get the exact same content on the web for free. Why should I spend money and get text without any pictures? Even Reader's Digest Kindle Edition made the effort by adding pictures. If Reader's Digest can add pictures, you can too! I know the image quality on the Kindle is poor, but at least add some pictures or graphics to spice up the Kindle edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Pictures! December 31, 2007
By D. Shen
Format:Kindle Edition
I cancelled this subscription the moment I saw the first "issue". It's more like a text-only download of the magazine. I was severely disappointed at its implementation. Initially I had hoped to transition my physical magazine subscription to the Kindle, but I like the graphics and format exponentially better than the Kindle version.

Number of Time issues per month?
53 issues/year. Economist magazine is much better. I read Time in high school. Economist is weekly and covers the world better. It's more like Murrows Boys, not a political tool.
