A Huge Disappointment,
This review is from: Miami Herald (Kindle Edition)
The other reviews of the Miami Herald Kindle edition have been too generous. I agree that the multiple, duplicated stories from various Herald editions are annoying. The only good feature is that the Kindle edition actually has more local news than the print edition, by combining Broward and Miami-Dade editions along with Neighbors. Skimming articles is easier than with print editions. The biggest downside is that the articles are not well organized. There is no rhyme or reason of why an article pops up in the lead spot in each Kindle section, clearly not the most important article or one that would even warrant coverage on the print edition's front pages. The articles appear to be randomly loaded. The Kindle edition should have a list of headlines for each section (sort of like a front page# so the reader can pick and chose the articles he/she wants, and the ability to skim the others. Use of graphics used in the print edition articles would be helpful, along with more photos. The Miami Herald Kindle edition has set newspapers back several decades. Herald editors should take a look at their own electronic edition, website, and most importantly some of the other Kindle editions #such as the NY Times) to get some pointers. The price is way too high for such a low-quality product, and existing Herald print subscribers should be given a price break. My print subscription actually costs less than the Kindle edition's cost. I will be cancelling my Kindle subscription and will not return until it is markedly better.
