Works better on Kindle now (before it didn't) Jan. 10 2012
By MagnoliaSouth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Most Kindle users are aware of graphics issues when it comes to a Kindle. Because it was 80% off at the time that I purchased it, I wanted to give it a go. Too bad that was a bad idea.

I even checked the cloud reader to see if I could see the atlases better on my computer. Surprisingly, that was a no go.

Many maps are okay, but the ones with labels on them are completely illegible. It's really too bad that Kindle hasn't perfected a zoom in. What a shame.

UPDATE:

I have a first generation Kindle Fire (KF) and when I bought this, all that time ago, it didn't work. Recently however KF has implemented a zoom option, which they should have had at the beginning, but I digress. The zoom feature is a blessing and makes this book now readable.

Granted, it's not the best zoom feature and if you're looking for HD type clarity, you won't get it. At least now I can read the labels on the map, where I couldn't before.

I am now pleased with the purchase.

Why such tiny maps? Jan. 11 2012
By malay<3sia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have to agree with MagnoliaSouth on this one; this book is definitely not for the Kindle, and is barely useful on a computer monitor. I purchased it to use in the classroom with my Bible class, intending to project it so my students can get a better idea of the places we study about. Some of the maps are usable, but many are not.

Even on my 17-inch monitor, it is almost impossible to read many of the words on the maps, especially the map legends and other information put into white boxes. When projected onto my classroom screen, the words blur into total illegibility. I will be able to use the book to some extent, but it is a real disappointment.

A huge problem is the size of the maps included in the book. For some reason, the majority of maps and photographs in this book are placed on the left side of the page and take up just under four tenths of the page. This makes no sense to me. Shouldn't the illustrations be nearly as wide as the pages? There is lots of good information in the book, so it is a real disappointment that the maps are so poor, especially since it IS an atlas.

OK, interesting discovery: Shrinking the font to the smallest size possible enlarges some of the maps. This makes the text of the book totally unreadable, and only helps a tiny bit with the legibility of the maps.

I can only hope the publisher will release an updated version with larger maps. Until then, I can't recommend this book.

Should have bought this a long time ago Aug. 20 2011
By George - Published on Amazon.com

I intend to read it on my iPhone, and maybe an iPad if I buy one some day. Of course I can read it on my Kindle, but not in color. It's already helped me eliminate some confusion about geography in the Holy Land. Should have had this resource available a long time ago.

Map zooming does not work using Kindle app in most cases. Jan. 20 2015
By J. Randolph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Hello folks... My 2 star decision is ONLY RELATED TO THE KINDLE EDITION. The print edition, which I also own, is outstanding; a solid 4 or more stars.

As of the date of this review, I tried the Kindle edition on three devices with poor experiences on each.

1) Kindle Keyboard 3rd Generation. This is an eInk device, which means that I did not expect it to work well and it does not. Maps are tiny, almost beyond any purpose in looking at them at all.

2) Mac OS X computer with the Kindle app. Full color, but no zoom of maps available. Maps too small for valuable use, even on my 27 inch iMac.

3) Android tablet device with the Kindle app. Just as was seen on the iMac, there is no zoom of the maps on the Android tablet device. Therefore, just like the iMac, the Kindle tablet app fell far short of useful , valuable map data.

The reason it escapes a one star review is that some charts can still be seen clearly and all plain text not found in a chart or map can be read clearly and zoomed as necessary for reading quality.

A shame that we can't zoom the maps/charts on these platforms, it really should work.
