First, I was pleasantly surprised you don't need a subscription. Second, this app has just about everything you'd find in the paper version. The navigation of sections is very simple, pictures are sharp, and the articles are easy to read as it's all optimized for the Fire. Scrolling through articles within a section is as simple as turning a page in a book.

I have nothing but good things to say about this app. Wonderfully formatted, userfriendly, and free. I highly recommend it.

The app is beautiful and well designed. It takes full advantage of the Fire's bigger screen and shows what's possible when a developer decides to make something special for the Fire. I hope apps like these are a preview of what's to come; an app designed specifically for smaller tablets.

This app stores huge amounts of data which will seriously impact the operation of your Kindle Fire. Discovered that mine was holding over 700mb. I deleted it and all is well again.

This is a must-have app for the Kindle Fire. You get access to all of the USA Today sections in full-color. News, Money, Sports, Life, YourLife, Tech, and Travel -- the entire USA Today experience in a single app.

The stories look great and are easy to navigate. The pictures are full-color and crisp. You can share stories via Facebook or email.

I've only spotted a single advertisement that appears as the app first starts. Other than that, the rest of the stories appear to be ad-free.

About the only problem I've spotted, and it's pretty minor, is the lack of a search feature. The magnifying glass appears on the bottom toolbar but doesn't do anything.

If you install the app and like it, please send feedback to USA Today. On the bottom toolbar, there is a menu button. Touch it then touch the feedback button. I sent them a note saying thank you for this awesome app.

Used to work but now crashes every single time I use it. Too bad -- it was a great app when it worked. But there's no point in keeping an app that constantly fails.

This free app edition used to work well on my Kindle Fire but lately some of the sections just crash and close. I really enjoyed this app before but I can't tolerate a crash that makes it worthless.

the app was updated today. Since then it requires an Internet connection to read the articles even if they were previously downloaded for off line reading. The app is now completely useless as I use my kindle offline most of the time. Too bad. I will uninstall it and find a new source of information. Why this change??? If it's not broken don't fix it.
