    This app is pretty bad. The best part about the app is that it gives updates on my locked screen regularly to let me know if something important is going on. However, unlike the KHON2 and KITV4 apps I have, the HNN app will always take me to the live story, before they even air it. This results in me being directed to a black screen with no added information. Often times I will try to exit back to the Hawaii News Now home page on the app, and be unable to find the story all together. I love Hawaii News Now, but please please please update the app to allow us to read the story. Those of us who have busy schedules would love to watch the story, but it’s much easier to read a short update than to wait a few minutes for the story to air.
  • Frustrating Notifications to Nowhere

    I’m personally affected by the lava activity in Leilani Estates, so I turned on notifications so I’m on top of the news. Unfortunately, when I click on a notification as soon as I’m alerted, I find myself watching an advertisement and invariably, a screen that informs me that they’ll be right back. And I wait. And I wait. I’m turning off notifications for this app. I’ll visit my other sources manually.

  • Not as advertised!

    You push this app on the TV, but yet it doesn’t function. I get a teaser notice on my iPhone of an important event... I click the teaser and I wait about 30 sec for the app to load, I can see the the video button and the clip I want to see... I click play and then an ad plays instead. The ad plays... I’ve used the skip button and watched the whole ad but receive the same bad result. After I’ve suffered through the ad, the meat I’m looking for never comes. The video just spins and spins never playing the clip. Frustrated I look for a place to comment to say, “this crap is a useless waste of time and I feel ripped off only having to be force fed an ad with no pay back!” Fix the app before you push it on TV please, this should be an embarrassment. Hope that helps Aloha
  • Great updates but hard to navigate

    App gives you great notification updates on what’s currently going on in the state but doesn’t seem to work like it should. For example, I get a notification on my lock screen and what is presented peaks my interest so I slide to open it which opens the app and then opens safari to load the live feed or most recent video. I don’t want that. I want to read the article you just notified me about. Going back to the app only frustrates you more because you can’t even find the article that was just presented to you.

    This app is so frustrating to use. It plays ads just fine, but takes forever to load and play videos, or to even open the stories I click on. What’s even worse is that the app is only useful if you decide to click on it and scroll through. It sends push notifications of breaking news and updated stories to your phone, but if you click on it, it doesn’t take you to the story! It opens the app and then redirects to some useless webpage that supposedly plays live broadcasts even when it’s not broadcasting time. And what about when there is a live broadcast? Nope, webpage still doesn’t work. So you go back to the app the scroll and look for the original story you clicked on, and it’s not there! Somehow this app has made it harder to access the news. It’s better to just follow individual reporters on instagram.
  • Terrible news app

    To echo others reviews, it is so frustrating to view a specific article, and the live streaming is almost non-existent after waiting several minutes for the commercials to end. I just want to watch what I’d missed earlier in the day.

  • HORRIBLE APP

    Feels like another garbage, non-native app that results in frustrating user experiences. Tried to play a video and just get a blank screen with audio. Only “fix” is force quitting the app. Like many other local news app, this is the kind of experience users face on all platforms as these news orgs don’t have the resources to make native apps. Mostly because the advertising model just doesn’t cut it and users are too cheap/expect “free”. Get what ya pay for!
