Yes, for a buck I can pick up the LA Times on my Kindle whenever I'm near a wireless connection. If you've read any periodicals on your Kindle or Android tablet then you will find this "paper" easy to negotiate. The articles every bit as relevant as they are on ink-and-paper and you won't have to wrestle a square yard of squashed dead trees in front of your face to find what interests you. The index is a snap. Try it. You just might get hooked.

Besides maybe KCET, no one else has the resources or desire to dig deeply into regional politics, graft, and corruption. It's the only source I have to figure out which judges and city-level politicians are worthy of my vote. Without the LA Times, we'd know much less about what's going on here. My only caveat is if Rupert Murdoch buys this paper; that would be so inappropriate for our community, and any recommendations made would be thus revoked.

It's a great newspaper with some very fine writers. The problem is on the kindle you cannot remove back issues completely, so you get piles of links for old issues. Its like having papers pile up near the front door. Lots written about this but still not fixed as of 5/15/2017, and it really makes people avoid buying copies. Also, it SEEMS like the kindle version is missing many of the stories that are in the paper version. I get both. Some days there will be only one story in NATION although there are several in the print version.

The news reporting is great but needs better technical quality controls. I bought the Oct. 30th 2015 just to see how literature like a newspaper appears on a Kindle Touch and would have gotten used to it, if wasn't for the poor introduction when simply navigating the newspaper sections and articles did not crash my Kindle – seriously, how can a elaborate text file crash a Kindle?

The Los Angeles Times (LAT) on the Kindle is almost self-explanatory. Foregoing the paperboys and weirdoes willing to wake up at 4:00AM, Los Angeles’s primary English-language newspaper is now delivered to your Kindle via wireless. Once on your Kindle, it assumes a unique two-column newspaper mode where the table of contents lists every section and links to relevant articles. On the Kindle e-reader series – Touch, Paperwhite, and Voyage – are limited to monochrome presentations while Fire users get the color images and the read aloud narration. Truly, the fans of the LAT no longer need to imagine a for a time such as now, where the most informative journalistic prose merges with a technology like the Amazon Kindle series for a presentation that used to be reserved for science fiction books.

I suppose it also shows its peril. For reasons I may never understand it crashed my Kindle Touch the first time I tried to read it. While the problem as cleared it up now but every now and then hiccups appear in the form of slow or delayed page turns and menu selections. These problems have not appeared in my Kindle Fire 6.

Excluding the technical problems, I could really get used to the LAT on Kindle. In addition to the wireless auto-delivery, being able to magnify the print and have access to months worth of the daily paper is great thing to have around if you are the kind to research and follow-up on particular events. Of course, nothing compares to holding a tangible paper in your hand, one you can fold and mark up with your crossword mistakes and jumble attempts, having it delivered and dealt with electronically is something any ecologically minded reader could get used to.

I just got new kindle for my birthday from my sister. I downloaded LA Time, which is my favorite newspaper. I love to read LA Time. I was shocked that it was limited when it downloaded into my kindle. I understand why, and that is okay. I truly wished that if they a little bit more articles in them, like few more, and then I would buy and download more. It seems like it is just a book review before you buy their product. I enjoyed reading them; however, I wished that their articles are more longer and more details.

The LA Times is one of America's top 3 newspapers. Of course it is the go to place for in depth entertainment news. I prefer their book reviews to the NY Times. LA is less establishment and in group and actually reviews books in a way that leads me to buy them. They also have more balanced coverage of the Middle East. Due to their location and demographics, there is excellent coverage of the South West, California, Latin America and Japan.

Big improvement with the LA Times.
Very nice accompanying photos with articles.
Excellent sports reviews by Sam Farmer.
Kindle version compares favorably with the printed page.
I will continue to purchase the Kindle version.

I gave it a three star rating because I feel the whole user experience was a little disappointing. Whoever, it does get the job done, meaning you get the same information as you can on a paper newspaper. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't care much about aesthetics but just wants to consume the news and be informed.

Great, however I miss the comics and detail of daily tv shows but I can get them from other sources.
