All about the money 2/5
Video players only play the advertisement (sometimes twice) then cannot buffer the actual news content I wanted to watch. Probably should find a new mobile developer that can successfully integrate the two.
Adds play fine. live stream works for 3 seconds and freezes. 🤬
Advertisement APP 1/5
Why the one star, this thing is AD Crazy everywhere from start up to clicking a story nothing is good on your part, deleted this app because of that. Gotta work on it better.
take me to the story 5/5
This clickbait nonsense has to stop. We are not clicking on headlines for boring live news. People want the content that should be provided in a well developed news article. Its a simple link guys, its not rocket science.
News up that doesn’t talk 1/5
I like news that I can listen to wail I’m driving and can give me up dats on traffic weather alerts and other thinks other wise what good is it if I got to read the news I’ll get news paper
Mr Luper 5/5
By Captain Jimmy V
I NEVER give my location to news apps. The reason: I will my local weather not your weather. I get my local weather from my local station. Why in the world would I want you to do that?
Doesn’t even load 1/5
All I ever get when opening the app is an error that says “I don’t know how to open this page”.
Love HNN, hate the app 5/5
I wanted to like the app, but all it does is cause frustration. It takes forever to load the videos, no matter if I'm on wifi or not, or what wifi I'm on. Itll play a 1 min long ad with no problem, but struggles to play a 30 second video of theirs. Ridiculous! They definitely need to work on their tech dept and on resolving this issue.
Deleted app 1/5
1. Won’t switch to landscape view so not good for ipad
2. EDITOR needed. So tired of misspellings, poor grammar, etc. You should be embarrassed.
3. Late news, no news. Reading about something local on Time or Yahoo first is ridiculous.
Terrible app 1/5
I second Nichole1444’s review. Today I tried to open a story from the notification and it froze my iPhone. Once I forced it to restart I deleted the app and downloaded a competitor.
Not fair News Now 3/5
The App is ok, but The News are not fairly reported, as they are clearly favoring the Democratic Party
I'm so frustrated with the notifications for this app. They send out a notification about a story I really want to read and instead of taking me to the story it opens up safari to the live broadcast which either doesn't work or has nothing to do with the story. Then I go back to the app to search for the story and 9 times out of 10 the story doesn't exist. Maybe the next day it will show up but I forget to check any later than that.
Worst News App ever 1/5
By Foolish app
Clearly developed by amateurs. Notifications never lead to the story but rather the home page. And you can't find the story! If you do manage to find any story you're interested in reading - click on it and come back an hour later. It'll take that long to load - if it ever does. #FAIL.
Doesn't load articles' text! 1/5
The ads and the photos load immediately. But the body of the text doesn't show up for a few minutes. Very annoying on both my iPad and iPhone. Useless!
Closed captions 2/5
No concern whatsoever for their hearing impaired viewers. Nearly every important news conference, like the rail that's on now has no captions. So we have no idea what they are trying to do.
Piece of Junk 1/5
By Retired HI 5-0
They did something to the HNN app, it now either crashes, hangs or locks up. Use to be my favorite news app, but going back to reading hard copy or watching news on TV until the fix the app.
BTW, it's not my iPad, updates are current, reloaded app, sync'd iPad, only couple other apps on my iPad all of which are working.
Doesn't work 1/5
Why create an app that doesn't work...
Update no good 2/5
Splash screen up way too long when opening the app. Also, if you accidentally close the app, you will have to sit through it again.
Also, app freezes way too often.
Needs fixing! 2/5
By IM Kitty
I like getting the breaking news notifications. When I try to open the app to read more, the app opens, then closes. When I try to open the app again, it opens then closes. So annoying! I have to read the details from another app.
Update: The previous bug was fixed. Now with some alerts it goes to video instead of written news. That's annoying because I'd rather read the news.
Public commentary? 4/5
Allow your viewers to log in to your App using Facebook to verify identity. Then let them join the discussion and comment on the stories being posted. This feature is trending all over the country why is hawaii news now behind the times. Give us your viewers a chance to speak out......
HNN always prompt me to turn on Bluetooth whenever i open it.
Nice to have 3/5
Great that you can allow them to send you alerts on particular topics...you choose. Headlines, traffic, etc. I can stay updated on local news when I'm off island without even trying. CNN doesn't even do that. However, I hate that they post old news on the front, because I would think it's new.
Could be much better 2/5
This app works fine for local news. However, the layout is just terrible. The iPad version was always better than the iPhone version since the iPad one had tiles. This "new" scrolling style is bad. I would forgive it with a better rating if there were a setting to change the view to tile vs. scroll. I'd use the app a lot more if that were an option. Please give us an option or go back to the tiled format.
Update Don't Work! 1/5
New update did not change. Maybe need to just uninstall and try again. Pathetic
Don't bother with this app 1/5
I had been using the old app for local Hawaiian news for a long time. But once again the tech heads have ruined a good thing. This new version is terrible. And they don't even give you a chance to keep the old one. It's gone now and so is this reader.
UPSET with their CLEAR agenda 2/5
The Election is over...MAYBE...just maybe HNN will stop being SNOWFLAKES or I'll simply remove the App and find things that are more fair and balanced.
Garbage media 1/5
Liberal spewing garbage news app. One sided bs
Great app, needs more? 4/5
I love this app, best way for me to get the news locally vs all the others. Is there any chance you folks can make the first local Apple TV app? That way we don't have to use our phone to airplay it to the tv. Cable cutters would be so happy I know it
Where is the Apple TV app? 5/5
Great app, but I would love to see an Apple TV app
What happened? 1/5
It's like this app when 99 steps backwards! Not only is the new layout buggy as heck but 80% of the time I can't even get on. It's like the app is just refusing to launch. I gotta clear the app about 5x and sometimes that still doesn't work. I'm approximately a day away from deleting this app. It's annoying.
Not interested in new look 1/5
I don't like the new layout. It's too hard to read. It was fine the way it was. Everything was easy to find.
Horrible Update! 1/5
Wish you left well enough alone. Everything was just fine the way it was. Now, your new layout looks too busy - everything is cramped in - making things harder to read. The text is too small. It's difficult to navigate - don't know where the local news was. Looks like I will have to find another news app - if this version does not improve. I hate to say it; but, the entire layout looks like the results of an intern graphic designer.
OMG! CHANGE IT BACK, PLEASE!! 1/5
I see your 'developers' are taking a cue from Google with the 'if it's not broken, break it' approach to upgrading. New version is a hot clunky mess and much LESS streamlined (in function and UI) than the prior version. There's a difference between 'elegant' and 'cluttered', you know? In this case, less is definitely more-and BETTER (in reference to the former version). Please consider changing it back. We'd totally understand your decision to do so. ;)
No Access 1/5
Was a great app until recently. Now getting error message cannot access server. Hope it's fixed soon!
This app is so buggy it opens up in safari rather than the app. Developers need to overhaul this app. I get my news from the Honolulu Star and KITV4
Ads galore 3/5
The full page ads are annoying. The little banners on the bottom should be enough. Every time I open this app the full page ad shows first before I see any news.
I use this app mostly for traffic alerts, which are really helpful.
It's thevHawaii news you don't care about 1/5
This app used to be great about release notifications that really mattered but lately hnn has become ratings trolls releasing some cheap garbage news update 5 minutes before their broadcast to try and make you tune in. Get another app and save the frustration
Most useful ap 5/5
By Mr MaiTai

Choke ads 3/5
By Annie Snorkel
I used to get a pop up ad after reading 5-6 stories, now it's about every 2. Kinda irritating.
Best news team in Hawaii 5/5
By The throbbing member
This only gets three 3/5
If it can get ride of advertisements il give it more stars
Best app ever
Keeps me up to date on what's going on in Hawaii 😊
Keeps me up to date 4/5
Keeps me up to date with news and traffic but sometimes when I swipe the notification on my phone, it doesn't take me to the story and I have to search for it.
Up to date!!!! 5/5
Enjoy getting the highlights. I feel I know what is happening even if I miss the news program.
Great app 5/5
By Marlow's zoo
I am in Maine and this app keeps me informed of the news from home.
Quick and. Easy Update 5/5
