This app delivers all the news via video. Why? So they can jam a commercial in your face. Deleted.
Poll results? 2/5
By Tommy Bruin
I just clicked on the top Headline news, which read "POLL: Who won the second Presidential debate". But the poll was nowhere to be found.
Looks really bad. Maybe KITV should stick to local news, rather than mess with national politics.
Awful update 1/5
Deleted app after your last update. Update made app useless to me. Receive text notifications of a story and click it to open up app but can't find it in all that jumbled mess. Your improvement made it utterly useless.
Will delete and stick to what I am currently using. This app is too cramped looking on my iphone. Hard to navigate - from one item to the next. Then suddenly a video ad pops up before I could read any news. That was it - no patience to watch Video just so I can read the news.
Blank screen 2/5
When trying to access the individual stories, all that shows up is a blank white screen. Not much news there.
Getting Better! 4/5
This app has improved a lot since the new layout was released and l appreciate the efforts to present a full-featured news app. Two items I'd like to see are a full-screen traffic map and a more legible gas map with larger text. I can't read the gas prices on my iP6 screen and the transplanting of the web page is not a proper format for a mobile phone. Looking forward to the next update!
Updated Format 2/5
The new format is working, but navigation is more difficult than original format. Also, news broadcast stream is not working at all. Tested news stream on Safari and Puffin browsers on my iPad 2 (iOS 8), and the stream isn't working there either.

I deleted this app because the new layout is such a disappointment. There used to be an area where you could look at a 7-day forecast, as well as, Doppler radar, etc. With the new update, it only gives push notifications for the weather. Also, the new update makes the app refresh a ridiculous amount of times before I'm able to scroll around at the stories. Wish it'd go back to the old format! I was forced to delete the app and use the Hawaii News Now app :(
Working but don't like new format 2/5
So now the app has a new format which seems to work but the horizontal set up is a pain.....you can see the same story listed in 3 different areas...go back to the vertical scrolling format!
Junk App - Only Old News 1/5
By John Keoni
Who ever is in charge of updating this App should be fired. For the past few weeks the different stories being loaded make the device screens flash. No other news apps do this ecmxcept your app so don't say it's your users hardware. Also Most of the "Breaking News" is either days old or not relevant to the local market KITV serves. I don't think KITV understands the purpose of having an app with breaking local news. It should be to keep the consumer informed about significant things happening locally and right now. Yesterday a murder took place in the Makiki area but 24 hours later KITV is still clueless.
If I want national or international news it will be from a CNN, BBC, FOX, etc. App.
Crappy Since Update 1/5
This app is rubbish since the update. Flickering bug when it opens, more ads, unorganized topics.
I finally downloaded KHON 2's app and deleted this one. Piece of junk that recently got a lot worse. Flashing "loading" icon when you open the app that is nearly seizure inducing. Ads popping up everywhere. Not user friendly and stories aren't even up to date. I'm way happier with the layout of the KHON app. I suggest you try that one instead.
It went to hell 1/5
It broke Oct 2015
After updating the app there's alot of gilitches .. It keeps loading .. Need to fix..
Don't like it 1/5
New update made the reading area too small and I have a 6 plus. Ads are in the way making it harder to read and its very distracting. Header is transparent but making the reading area smaller.
Not good. 1/5
This app is not user friendly, if it evens opens.
No Audio 3/5
Videos played off of the app have no audio.
Very nice Honolulu App with news! 5/5
Very interesting and a lot to see about Honolulu I like to see its wonderful ,and a lot good,brings some memories of Hawaii ! Thanks a lot! Enjoy a lot.Keep on bringing on all good memories,doesn't crash or no problems!
Don't bother this is pure garbage 1/5
This is supposed to be the app for a tv news channel. It is not updated more than once a day on week days and never on a weekend. Even an event like 9/11 would not appear for a day if it happened after the update.
Da' Best!!! 5/5
By Ragged Glory
Mahalo for great Local News!!
Manager, Ho'omana Pono, LLC. 5/5
I love this app, as it affords me the freedom to catch the news when I'm ready to. My busy schedule does not lend itself for me to be available when the news is scheduled to air.
Mahalo KITV 4 for being considerate to those of us who want to hear the news, but are unable to catch it at your designated air times.
Poorly implemented 1/5
When I click on the live stream link it opens up Safari and in Safari there are two links. One leads to nothing, and the other opens the KITV app.
Great app 5/5
Alerts, headline news, everything you need. This app keeps me up to date and I like it
Reports are good,
News Not Current 2/5
This app is not updated on a timely manner.
Can get more up to the minute news and sports information online.

Best news app in my book, recommend this app.
Great app 5/5
I'm new to a smartphone so getting news alerts on time keeps me informed.
4 & 1/2 Stars 4/5
By Maui Son
Really like the radar weather showing cloud formation over the islands. Thanks!!
This app is weak at it's best, short stories, no search option, too many ads, updates are far too infrequent, just like the rest of the news in the state, all comedy....kids in high school have better reporting skills...
" Amazing " 5/5
Great news,delivery always on time and we'll inform to the public.
The mobile app has significantly improved! Keep up the good work!
Old New that lingers ! 2/5
This app is like the other local news apps. Old News for much to long.
Only up dated on the one head line event.
All the rest of the news can still there for several days !!
And the farther down you go, the older the news.
I can get better news and news worthy stories from
Out of state on the web.
About state and city news!!
The news alerts are great! It keeps me informed.
Great news app 5/5
Perfect local news app
Keeps me informed
Good start 4/5
Good app, nice start. Good info, though it needs to update faster. I get news alerts and have to wait for the app to catch up.
Keeps me in-the-know 5/5
By Robert Cooter
Sometimes notifications sent out more than once but overall it's a good app
Won't initialize or load. 1/5
Weather is good. Keep developing.
Lazy updates!!! 1/5
Actually, no updates. The headlines have been the same for at least 3 days. Ridiculous. Nothing about the bad weather.
Nice Start 3/5
Being an expatriate I would have appreciated more local and muster instead of this little fluff of a tease.
It doesn't update frequently unless you are close or in the islands. It has limited stories but should also have more "local" flare like its tv station.
It's a sincere better app than it's sister Khon2 that sold out to higher monies.
Great apps 5/5
