It's just like reading the magazine. Pages can be viewed one page at a time in portrait view and two pages at a time in landscape view. You can also zoom in to read or look at pictures.

The subscription price is also a great deal. If you read Maxim and got a Kindle Fire, I recommend this highly.

I thought I'd give this a shot, right along with Details and The New Yorker, because of the free trial. Gotta say I'm very disappointed in it. Yes, it's fast and easy to use and the pictures look great but you can't read the articles without constantly zooming and scrolling. Plus, you have to scroll past countless ads just to get to any content. Maxim on the Fire is useless if you want to comfortably read the magazine. But if all you want are the pictures, then it's great. I gave it two stars instead of one because the photos look great. If I was rating it on legibility, then I'd have to go with one star. Compare this to The New Yorker, which is an app, and you'll see the difference between a great layout for the Fire and a horrible one.

I decided to give maxim a shot because I use to have all the magazines and pretty entertaining. I noticed that not all my issues are there they get deleted once the new arrives. Does any one have this similar issues?

Impossible to read on a Kindle Fire. No slam against Maxim, might just be the Fire's small screen doesn't translate. well to magazines.

The magazine is pretty dull. The stories are not interesting and the interviews are even worse. Dont waste your money!

Difficult to navigate (zoom, scroll, etc.) No "maxim motion" for kindle or other content. Lame when compared to Sports Illustrated swim suit issue which was great on the kindle.

Its amazing how you can get Maxim for your Kindle Fire for just $1.25 per month. Not only does this reduces waste(going green here!) but Kindle's version of Maxim does not feel water-down at all. It is the same content you see in print, but delivered wirelessly and automatically to your Kindle each month.

Maxim is a magazine, which has men as the main target audience. Topics usually include a grab bag on latest products, self-maintenance, stories and of course women.

This is the first magazine I've bought for the Kindle Fire and all I can say is awesome. The photos are perfection and the articles are great. It is easy to navigate, expand, and zoom on pictures and text. I have always been a fan of maxim and the kindle fire just makes it way better!

While the pictures come out clear,The content is far to small to appreciate on the Fire. It's annoying to read in the text version so cancelled my subscription.

I have been using the Kindle Fire since it came out. So far most magazines, like Maxum, look great minus the small screen size of the Fire. It still amazes me how many people complain that is hard to read an article on the Fire and don't uses TEXT VIEW when reading. To read an article I switch to TEXT VIEW and switch back to PAGE VIEW to admire the photos. This works great when view other photo heavy magazine like Nat'l Geographic.

As for the Maxum the Magazine. I enjoy it. There is usually one really good feature article about almost anything, from wounded Iraq vets to mountain rescue. An the interviews with the celebrity girl of the moment are always funny.
