Best version of the World available to me in the mornings since no carrier can get the paper to me at a reasonable time. Much more complete than web version -- plus no nasty commenters!
Unlike other Kindle newspapers & mags, the World lacks submenus that enable the reader to quickly navigate through sections. Please fix this asap.

I was excited about getting the Tulsa World on Kindle when it was finally made available. I love being able to click through the stories, and not have to read half a story on the front page, then hunt it down later. I also love not having papers stack up between recycling.
But alas, I was truly disappointed in the Kindle Version. It breaks up the Paper into the Big Sections, i.e. News, Buisness, Opinion, Scene, etc. That doesn't sound bad, but they lump every news story into news. That ends up givinig the news section 45-60 stories in one section. And those 45-60 stories are not organized whatsoever. The local, state, national, and international news stories are just thrown into a folder called News, and you have to sift through every story to find the ones you want to read. Its a mess.
They also leave out a lot of the good parts of the paper, such as their community calendar, pictures, and other non-kindle friendly items like cross-words and etc.
And my last complaint about the paper is the typos. There were several typos, and missing article titles, and not to mention last few paragraphs of articles. All in all, it is just not a good paper for Kindle. I have switched back to the print version.

The Kindle version of the Tulsa World is overpriced and half-baked. I would love to follow events in my hometown, but this makes an already weak newspaper almost unreadable. The World has been running on profit-taking fumes for years, so it isn't surprising that the publisher decided to charge more than comparable mid-market dailies around the nation and has apparently never looked to see how the paper is presented in this format. News is presented in a jumble of headlines with little organization or identification of local vs. national news, and the TOC causes the Kindle Android app to hang.
Please, Tulsa World, work with me here. I want to give you a reasonable sum of money in exchange for a readable source of Tulsa news. How can it be so hard for you to provide that?

The Kindle version doesn't allow for viewing the comments section of the newspaper, the layout and format looks and feels like an article compilation opposed to an intuitive interface with different sections and navigation. Overpriced for information that can be obtained for free.

The Tulsa World kindle edition is not avalable for iPad via the Kindle app. Why? That seems like a poor decision. I am excited to get The Daily soon and was going to get the World as well, but they do not want my subscription. I guess i will have to read what content is available on the website.
