Upon receiving my kindle, I immediately sought out this publication. I was disappointed when I couldn't find it, as I have been a loyal Sun-Times reader most of my adult life. I settled for the Tribune at first but started to notice the numerous formatting and grammatical errors. Titles were jumbled into by-lines and twice in the first week the 5AM delivery was delayed until past 10AM. Luckily since starting my subcription of the Sun-Times, I have had none of these problems. The 6AM delivery is later but has been consistent from the start. While a newspaper is mainly for reading, an occasional picture really helps drive a story home. Pictures are actually included with this publication and it looks like the professional, finished product that I originally expected.

I received the Sun-Times for three months and found it to be reasonably good and enjoyed reading it. The problem is that every single issue was sent to my Archived Items area, and not deleted after a week as they should be. As a result, my Archived Items folder has 109 items in it, 103 of which are old papers that I can't delete. It makes finding anything there very time-consuming. I have contacted Amazon 3 times about the problem, starting 3 weeks ago, and so far even their Tech department can't figure out how to get rid of them. At the suggestion of an Amazon rep I cancelled the subscription figuring that this would delete the old issues. They are still there 2 weeks after the cancellation.

The paper itself was okay, but if you don't want a clogged Archived Items folder, go with the Tribune. The formatting and pictures of the Sun-Times isn't that much better to warrant the hassle. Also, the Trib is a little better on national and world news.

I have been a Sun Times reader since I could read. I was excited to try out the Kindle version because my paper carrier doesn't understand how to double bag the paper in wet weather so that one end isn't exposed (really, how hard is it to bag each end of the paper?). I eagerly tried out the SunTimes on my Kindle. Alas, my 2 favorite sections of the paper, the comics and the horoscopes, are not on the Kindle version. After reading about all the murders, crime and political shenanigans (of which we Chicagoans seem to excel at) I need my comics for some levity and the horoscopes for some hope.

As a Sun Times daily subscriber for over 40 years I was eager to save money and the environment by switching to the Kindle version. After some adjustment and searching I found some of the sections I routinely read but failed to locate the comics section or the crossword puzzle. I called to inquiry and was told the Kindle editions do not carry some of the sections and images present in the print version. This was highly disappointing. I would certainly have thought harder before switching if I knew I would receive only an abridged version! Perhaps the best solution is to cancel the Kindle subscription as well. I didn't realize the newspaper business was so lucrative that they could afford to alienate their life time subscribers! I will be sure to pass this information on to friends and family who are considering changing!

Disappointed!

I love the Chicago Sun-Times. It's my favorite daily newspaper. But the Kindle version leaves much to be desired. First, the typography is atrocious! Yesterday's headline was, "CITYATTORNEYRESIGNSAF-TERJUDGEFINDSSHE MISLEDCO-URTIN2011FATALCPDSHOO-TINGCASE." Yikes! Who can read that? There are similar spacing problems in many of the articles. Also, I agree with another reviewer that there seems to be no rhyme or reason to the way articles are organized. Not sure if I will be continuing my subscription after the 14-day trial expires.

The Chicago Sun-Times for the Kindle absolutely stinks. It has very little content in News stories, but lots of sports. It has no weather whatsoever either. Virtually no finance news. It really is hardly worth downloading.

I got a Kindle for Christmas and was excited to start getting the Sun-Times on it every morning. The only problem is that it doesn't get downloaded until 7:00am (confirmed this time with Amazon)! Which is when I arrive at work. So I get to see the paper sitting at the train station at 6:00am, but not on my Kindle. Very disappointed since getting the paper was the reason I got the 3G in the first place. Not sure if I want to wait until the ride home to read the paper.

The digital delivery of the Sun-Times has consistently been late, contained bad formatting, and truncated articles. After having the "News" section omitted it lead me to cancel subscription out of disgust. For Chicago news, consider the Tribune instead.
