2.0 out of 5 stars Only Basic Sports Stories And Poor Overall Organization, January 24, 2010
This review is from: Fort Worth Star-Telegram (Kindle Edition)
I am a former subscriber of the print edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, but I had recently canceled due to delivery inconsistencies. I liked the content of the paper, but they just couldn't get it to me before I left for work in the morning. When I saw that it was available for the Kindle, I thought that I had solved my problem by taking the delivery person out of the equation. However, it didn't work out as I had hoped.

The Sports section was my primary reason for reading a newspaper, but the Kindle edition is only a shell of what you get in print. In addition to no box scores readers will also be lacking the basic score information for the previous day for any game that does not have a story associated with it. Also the standings for the major leagues are nowhere to be found either. The columns are the same, and the local coverage of the Cowboys, Mavericks, etc. is sufficient. However I don't want to have to go elsewhere to finish off my sports fix. If that's the case, I'll get the national perspective from ESPN or some other source.

The other issue I found that made me crazy was the organization of stories. For the 1/24 Sunday edition, there was no Life & Arts section; however, I did find a story that should have been under this label under the National category. This was not a onetime thing either as one of the weekday editions had a Jay Leno/Tonight Show story under the National category.

For these reasons, the Kindle edition of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram does not work for me. Unless you want just articles with a sometimes unintuitive organization, pass on this one.
