This Kindle edition seems like it was put together well but for some reason the search index, when used with my Kindle Paperwhite, doesn't work. It does work using Amazon's desktop app but I do most of my digital reading on my Kindle so this ebook is, at the moment, somewhat useless to me.
I did speak with the publisher and he was good enough to promise to make efforts to see if the problem is unique to my own device or if it applies to all Paperwhites and act accordingly. I will report with any updates.
One thing that I REALLY wanted was an Integrable dictionary that works with the Kindle and so decided to ask the publisher about this. He explained he too wanted to do this but Amazon doesn't allow for anyone to create integrated dictionaries for the Kindle.
I rattled my brain thinking how I might be able to find enough people who would love to have Noah's 1828 dictionary used in much of their Kindle reading and, perhaps, to petition Amazon to reevaluate this policy and allow alternate dictionaries used for their e-reader.
After giving it much thought I realized it would be wiser and more efficient if I let the readers come to me and voice with their fingers.
If you want to see an Integrated 1828 dictionary for the Kindle then PLEASE "like" this review and let Amazon know that you want them to allow users to choose which dictionary they prefer. While I think their should be certain standards for what is considered an acceptable dictionary, Noah's 1828 dictionary more than qualifies and puts modern dictionaries to shame.
Please, Amazon representatives, do the right thing and let it happen and put Noah Webster's masterpiece in the prominent place where it belongs. The Kindle is a wonderful device and it can only be made more wonderful by integrating it with the greatest dictionary of the English language ever published.
Packard Technologies has indicated hope that this problem might be rectified in the foreseeable future. If that happens, it will be great if the upgrade is automatically downloaded to my Kindle. Otherwise, I am stuck with an unsatisfactory purchase that I don’t know how to return.
So bottom line: great dictionary, the interface needs a big update. Hopefully the manufacturer will do so!
I especially appreciate its providing the root words derivation and the foreign language equivalent.
Overall a very useful tool however.
