Some of the other reviews worried me, but I gave the Charlotte Observer a try. It appears to contain everything one would find in the print edition. So, needless to say, I was happy with the content and it appears that some of the other reviews don't reflect the current state of the Kindle edition.

Yes, the Charlotte Observer did have some content issues on their 1st day. My issue today contains a lot more content including sports. While the Kindle edition will not take the place of my regular subscription it will be wonderful when I'm traveling. I'm very glad to have this option.

Be careful if you buy this. I was very excited to convert to the electronic subscription, but the Kindle version is stripped down extensively from the print edition. The Sports section is not included in the Kindle version, nor does it seem to include any article filed with a late deadline. Given the reduction in original content in the print edition over the last few years, what you're left with is a bunch of stories from the AP wire and a smattering of local news stories. Save your money until McClatchey gets its act together.

I write this in April 2013. You may want to disregard older reviews from two years or older. I bought a few 'current issues'. There are a lot of articles in each ereader issue ! It was possibly not as extensive in the past. The Charlotte Observer is an excellent newspaper, especially if you live in North Carolina.

Shortly after I subscribed while on vacation I had to go online with my laptop to the Observer to get an article about a statement a SC Seantor made. It was defintely left out of the Kindle edition. I dropped my subscription but bought one issue to read and obituary while I was out of town recently, only to find there are no obituraies in the Kindle edition.

Compared to other newspaper tablet editions, this version is not very user-friendly. I went back to getting a paper subscription.

The Bad:
Overall the format is okay. My only complaint is the price and the Obituaries.... Yes, the Obituaries contains sports and other news articles. Last time I checked all of sports in Charlotte have not been buried 6ft under (-_-)!

The Good:
Content is fresh and always on time. The format is easy and follows the newspaper (except some of Sports... see above)

In case it matters... I am viewing this Newspaper on a Kindle Fire HDX (3rd gen), Kindle Paperwhite 2014, and a Kindle Paperwhite 2015. :-)

They have a crap rating so this is useless, but I vent none the less. I don't subscribe, to the paper, but I am blessed with their "free paper" twice a week in my yard. I have to subscribe for them to put that piece of crap in the paper box, but I don't so they throw it in the yard or driveway. I have asked the driver nicely, not so nicely, I have called circulation, sent letters to the president of paper. They tell me they are doing the best they can??? Look down the street. Nobody looks at that rag. It sits there until trash day and then some neighbors pick them up and trash them. Who do I have to sleep with to get them to stop littering in my freaking yard??
