Seen previous review. App is okay and gives good breaking news to follow up on and traffic update good.
Good news! 5/5
I love this khon2 news because its very important about what happened and upgraded!
Full of Ads!!🤨 1/5
Loaded with ads! 7 different commercials popped up while before I could read one short article.
Great app for on the go
Rate it... junk update 1/5
Same old same old... still have to close out the goofy pizza ad.
Terrible lay out after the update, requires jumping around to find a two sentence “story”.
Little or no National news, and if their is, just fluff slant to the Left.
Mostly I check out the rising crime rate here in Paradise ...

This app is terrible. Make it more user friendly
Terrible update 1/5
Holy moly... 3rd time reviewing this train wreck of an app. So riddled with advertising and minimal news that it’s unusable. Deleting it tonight after all these years because the latest version is just that awful. Will stick to the other local news station app from now on.
The new version has LESS news than before, requires you click links for articles that then take you out of the app and into a browser, then you have to close “click to continue reading” anything more than the first paragraph, so to read another story, you then must first reverse like 3 times. This update was like trading in a 1994 Ford Taurus for a 1989 toyota Tercel... just when you thought it couldn't get worse... it did. And so many forced video commercials, the whole experience leaves a bad taste.
Don’t even bother downloading this. If you do, think back to this review after 3 days and you’ll think, “Wow, he was right!”.
Good app 3/5
I like the news and push alerts but the "new" is heavily sports oriented and I would prefer if they would emphasize the top stories more. I also don't appreciate that the first thing that always pops up when you open the app is an advertisement. Otherwise this is my go to news station.

The information is quick and concise.
I am happy with this new version 😊😊😊
A new look but less useful 2/5
Harder to find and read news articles. Now lots of other sections I never use and would like to edit out but can't. Weather section not as helpful.
Way too many ads
Bad update 3/5
By Kanoa from Manoa
After the most recent update, I now have to click multiple times to read one article. And while watching a roughly 2-minute news video, I got interrupted 3 times by the same video ad. This app was much better before the update
New version 1/5
Go back to old version
New version 2/5
Go back to the old version!
Barely any articles!
Not user friendly!
I prefer are other local channel app!!!
Would like to see a comment section.
This app is working well.
Not good 1/5
No enough news, needs a lot more content. It is now the worst of the Hawaii News Apps.
App crash 1/5
By 808 SkinDiver
Unable to lunch this app since I updated.
Contents too biased 1/5
I would recommend that you look elsewhere for a news app, this one is way too pro ruling party and very biased towards their king.
Avoid at all costs.
Doesn't Work 1/5
Dead for a week. Won't refresh articles. Deleted. Reinstalled. Same.
Does not work 1/5
By Castle FarmVille
App does not even open...deleting it.
It's like the online one, but simply more mobile with an incredible interface. Offers way more than the online one.
App needs an update 2/5
App is clunky, not user friendly, and doesn't display articles properly.
Irritating popups 2/5
Popups are irritating especially when in the middle of reading an article and dominoes pizza add pop ups.
Not bad but annoying 3/5
Please add/rewrite the app so that the back page button appears as soon as you start to scroll up.
It's very annoying having to scroll all the way back up after reading each article.
In all honesty, I wind up reading your competitors news apps due to this issue.
KHON has best News App 5/5
Love KHON and this app.
Can't do anything in the app. Had to close and open the app to get it to reload. Then the app just froze completely. Only thing worked was to close it.
S - L - O - W! Wake me up when it loads! 1/5
I love KHON news.
That said, the latest update has made this app excruciating to use. 1. It takes no less than 2-3 minutes to load past the white screen, then no less than 2-4 minutes to fetch the stories. (I do have fast internet, and all my other apps load very quickly. So it's not the ISP.). Then sometimes even longer for a particular story to load.
2. Another major problem is the way the stories eventually display on the screen. The story itself is displayed on only about 1/3 - 1/4 of the screen. The rest is taken up with the apps banners and advertising. This makes it very difficult to read-even on my iPhone 6 Plus.
The story will eventually utilize a larger footprint, (about 60% of the screen), but it's not consistent. It will continuously bounce back & forth between the larger screen & the micro screen, until you are too dizzy to continue reading any more. It requires constant scrolling to find your place as the story continues to bounce back and forth.
3. The screen freezes. This happens regularly. You cannot scroll through the story, nor even close the app. The only way to get out of it is to completely turn off the phone.
All of these issues make this a very sorry excuse for an app. Please fix it! This used to be one of my favorite news apps.
The news content is great, if you can get all the way through a story, but the app is now horrible.
The live stream works 1/10 times. The rest of the time, it's yesterday's broadcast, "Embargoed Content" or even Judge Judy!!! Definitely needs to be fixed...
Very good 5/5
I recently was so fed up with the KITV app that I downloaded this one and deleted KITV, once and for all. Great move. Very smart layout. Easy to select weather, a video, live stream of the news, etc. The stories seem pretty up to date. Yes, there are some ads, but they're much less obtrusive than on other apps. This was well designed. The KITV folks should take notes on how to design an app that works and is easy to navigate.
App doesn't work on iOS 9.1 1/5
This app does not work. When trying to scroll, it flickers up and down and does not scroll correctly. Please fix this issue immediately
Jittery frustrating news app 1/5
Echoing another reviewer, when you scroll down to get to the end of the article, the app will jump up & down; very very frustrating
Update now!!! 1/5
By Mrs. Yahiku
Just re-iterating what was already been posted.
When scrolling down an article, the app does a skipping/shifting action where I can no longer read the rest of the article!
I just end up reading the article on another news app that doesn't do this. (HNN, Star Advertiser)
Best News Worst App 1/5
Love KHON but this application is a joke. Always glitches while scrolling through news articles, Dominos ad will pop up every time you switch between articles, and trying to go back to home page is beyond frustrating.
Notification # Glitch 2/5
Most irritating Domino Pizza pop up ad each time a news item is opened or close😡👎👎
Pop-up ads 1/5
Scrolling annoyance 1/5
I've noticed that all the apps I use that seemingly use the same format have the extremely annoying scrolling bug. So annoying, I give up & go somewhere else for my info.
*BROKEN* Needs Another Update 1/5
Still is not compatible with iOS 9. When you try to scroll down in the articles it causes the articles to jump up and down. Thus not allowing you to read the bottom of the article.
Find another news app.
Also it not my devices. It also happens on my 5s, 6+ and 6s all on 9.0.2
Pop ups ruin app 1/5
By Sound ?
After update, the app is very glitchy when scrolling
Can't scroll to the end of articles without the screen bouncing up and down. Deleted.
By A Longtime Customer
Downloaded this app to get notifications about weather and other potentially important alerts. It's so glitchy, even when it does give me notifications I can't read the articles, so I deleted it.
Notifications won't go away... 1/5
My notifications for this App is over 100 and won't go away. Saw all the comments concerning this issue and checked other Apps created by the seller, and found that all the ones I checked, which were for other TV stations, had the same issue. Maybe it's time to get a new developer?
I like the breaking news and weather alerts; however, after reading all the alerts, the red number doesn't go away and I don't know how to cancel it. It's up to 100+ so I just deleted the app and downloaded Hawaii News Now. I'll download again when problem is fixed.
Useful app but needs fix 4/5
This app comes in handy all the time! It alerts me for breaking news and weather alerts! But there is one problem, the notifications in the red circle by the app is not going away. Even though I check in to the app, the notifications won't go away! It's at like 103 right now and I don't want it to grow any more! Please patch this up!!
Annoying notification 2/5
Notification number will not go away after opening up the app. It's quite annoying. It's showing I have 83 notifications now. Please fix soon!
The number of alerts that come in the red circle do not go away, even if I open up the app. How can I get them to go away? I am frustrated by the app now. Please fix this or I might delete this app. I like the rest of the app.
Notification doesn't disappear. 2/5
Notification number doesn't disappear even after you own the app. I'm up to 39 now.
The app does not reset notifications, it just keeps incrementing them. 1 in the app, 56 on the home icon.
By Frost flake
how get the number from khon app off
very annoying app 1/5
By Layla's Nana
I-phone & I- Pad now have 44 alerts and the number will not go away after opening your app. Will be deleting your app from both and will not re-load until it is fix with the other issues as well.
