Let me preface this by saying that the print Family Handyman is a great publication. However, this review is a direct response to the digital format sold via Amazon. This magazine simply does NOT work well in digital format. The inability to read it on my Kindle for PC app has led me to cancel my subscription and complain to both Amazon and the publisher. This is a magazine full of instructions and photos. Even with the capacity to zoom and enlarge, it's bloody impossible to work through a project reading on the Kindle Fire. I cannot imagine what a nightmare it would be trying to navigate on the other Kindle apps (especially the ones for phones - sheesh). It really sucks that Amazon is doing this magazine and us readers such a disservice by refusing to allow magazines to be read on the Kindle for PC app.

I found navigation difficult. Browsing is laborious because of the size of the kindle screen.

In general I have found that publishers love to sell electronic copies because it cuts down on production cost. But, they are unwilling to format and check their work. In many e-books on Kindle there are spelling errors that go unnoticed.

On this publication it was difficult to scan the magazine because of the text size. The publisher should make an e version not just scan it in. E-versions deserve the quality of print versions.

I got this magazine a few month ago for my kindle fire. The images are great and the articles helpfull. It has text view that makes reading the articles very easy. Would recommend to anyone who likes to do it yourself and doesn't already have a lot of knowledge on these types of projects.

Perhaps regular readers of this magazine aren't bothered by the ads but I found that this magazine contained more advertisements than actual reading material and projects.

Basically a pdf of the print edition. Very high quality and smooth. Would recommend to everyone that likes to work with their hands. I find myself looking forward to the magazine every month. Reading on Ipad and Iphone and works great.

Used to read this all the time growing up and decided to get on my Kindle because of price. The navigation feels cumbersome and if you enter the text mode, most of the pictures don't show up. Seems like only the main pictures appear but all of the figures where they show things disappear. So to read of do anything you're constantly zooming in and out. To make matters worse now, the e version costs more then the print version. Had it for a year and now cancelling.

Not as good as the magazine itself. I would not recommed anyone download a digital magazine such as this. But I guess I had to try it once. Don't know if I will ever try another one.

I've subscribed to The Family Handyman for years, always enjoyed each issue and found tips for working around the house. I made a resolution this year to try to cut down on the clutter around my house and decrease the amount of magazines I receive, so I was waiting for my paper subscription to expire before subscribing on line. I love it that I can easily look up articles without having to go through a stack of magazines.
