I've been using the Tabletalk Magazine for years; it is a good devotional for those in Reformed circles and serious about Scripture. I'm a big one for writing in my magazine and keeping the back issues for reference. So I was wondering how suitable the electronic version would be for my purposes. I'm also an ebook conversion tech at a medium size publishing company, so I know a thing or two about electronic format, fixed layout (such as Tabletalk magazine), etc.

Positive: It is nice to have Tabletalk with me when in the car, waiting at the doctor office, etc. One can always pull it up, read the various articles, or review the day's devo. Nice and convenient. And the electronic Kindle version comes free if you already have a subscription to the printed version.

It is also nice that you have access to back issues. These already display when accessed through the library menu and they can be downloaded when connected to the Internet. Nice. Also, when you are done with an issue, you can "archive" it for future reading. Nice.

Negative: Here are some things that I think the technicians need to think about. I realize there are limitations to fixed layout, whether on a Kindle or using iBooksAuthor, etc. One is the readability. The text size is too small and, of course, one weakness of fixed layout is that the type size cannot be adjusted on a reading device, such as on your Kindle. You better have good eyes to be able to read the material. The technicians should rethink the design of digital Tabletalk. Increase the font size to a more readable size when displaying on the Kindle. It can help to not try to perfectly match the look of the print version. Rethink the breakouts and the otherwise blank left margins in the articles.

Purchased Kindle Fire HD 8.9 a few months ago, loaded this app, had a few issues, too small as it didn't fill the whole screen, couldn't navigate. Recently updated June issue and now have a full screen for these weak eyes! Great magazine because of the excellent content. I have 12 issues downloaded now, only June 2013 fills the whole screen. Ligonier is really laboring to keep up with the new technology-just gotta be patient.

Was informed by Tech Support today (service@ligonier.org) that the developers of this app no longer support the 1st Generation Kindle Fire as of 2 weeks ago, or about the July 1, 2014. How nice . . . that makes this app completely useless to me. So if you own a 1st Gen Kindle Fire this won't work for you.

- Review for the Kindle HD -
This app is great. Just like the print edition, it's gorgeous and the navigation is very intuitive. The only setbacks are the lack of text size adjustments and some of the articles are oddly cropped. Really close to being a 5 star app.

App works wonderfully for my Fire HD 8.9; it does crash upon startup more than I wish it would, but that is only a small bother. All pages of the hardcopy version are nicely displayed in full graphical format. It's well indexed and easy to navigate. Where articles are published online, the app provides links for those articles. Occasionally I lose visibility to all the back issues in my library, but by logging out and logging back in, I regain visibility. I haven't kept track of precise times, but it seems to happen around the time Ligonier pushes out a new monthly issue.

For my original model Fire, I found the print format too small, and not adjustable. However, subscribers can arrange for ebook delivery of monthly issues in mobi format, and you can read them apart from the TT app just like any other Kindle book. Graphics and the native TT print font are absent in this format, but it still works great on smaller Fire models as well as the e-ink versions of the Kindle, and other portable devices via the Amazon Kindle app. Essentially you can take Tabletalk with you wherever you go, so the eBook edition is a nice supplement or alternative to the full Tabletalk Magazine app on smaller devices.

You have to subscribe to the print edition to get this on Kindle, but then the Kindle edition is free. My wife reads the paper edition, and I use my Kindle Fire. On the Fire, the pages have the words and pictures just like the print copy. As a religious reader and Sunday School teacher, I appreciate many articles that apply to my life and also inform my teaching. Coming from the Reformed position, the articles are bible-based, which means they are conservative relative to today's culture in the US.

I got this because it was free access to the magazine that I get in print anyway. My wife uses it more than I do. I still enjoy the print edition that I can underline for future reference if needed. The app was very hard to get to work. I had to deal with the publisher twice to finally get it to work.

Frankly, I prefer the print edition to read at home. There's nothing like flipping through an issue manually to find what you like and underline for future use or take notes. But if you're like me and take your e-reader with you for those expected and unexpected delays in lobbies and waiting rooms, then this Kindle app will be a blessing, and a fruitful one at that. Tabletalk's articles are relatively short and to the point. The app itself downloads quickly and though it takes a bit longer for an issue to download (maybe a couple of minutes, depending on your internet connection), the articles are easily navigable and the table of contents links handy.

As for the magazine itself, the articles are always timely and thematically organized, the columns like that of R.C. Sproul are Scripturally-rich, interviews with leading pastors and theologians like Carl Trueman, for ex., are an insightful bonus, and the daily devotionals are succinct but close studies of Scripture. Time spent with this app in hand is time well-spent indeed. Highly recommended!
