I can never get it to work!! 1/5
By no icecream for us!!
When I try to find out what going on now you can’t find it on this app!! Your station sends out alerts to my phone if I don’t tap on that alert you sent I will never find it in this app. I love your channel and Joe M. But this app hates me!! It’s great for yesterday’s news! It’s very frustrating!! 🤯🤯 Have a great day!!
Used to be good - what happened?!! 1/5
I understand that news needs advertisements to survive. But I am going NUTS with the new update to this app!! I sometimes like to check the news at work, on the bus while commuting, while I’m a passenger in a car, sometimes the library.... and it was never an issue. NOW, every single time I click on an article, the advertisements automatically play out loud even though I have my phone on silent!!! Do you know how embarrassing it is to be on a bus and the video starts playing super loud when you least expect it?!! Are you listening guys??? Please fix it!!! Otherwise, I’ll be forced to delete this app
Ads pop up when notifications announce live news. ‘Dismiss’ as and then need to search for live video. It’s a pain and a waste of my time! Deleting!
There are now so many ads, popups and rollouts that it takes forever for a page to even load. Every story you click on just restarts the whole parade of ads. Unreadable and unusable. Deleting.
Notifications flaw! 2/5
By justin case your listening
When there are notifications sent from this news app and you click on them it only takes you to a live feed of the news currently playing and not to an article about the story. If you get a notification, but then 5-10 min pass before you are able to look at it....then the live stream is over or you have missed the story of interest to you on the live news feed. This is very annoying. The notifications should send you straight to the written news story (article) in the app, with the option of watching the recap of the story on video at the top of the article. You do this and it is a 5 star app for sure with good news stories, but until then, this apps notification style is annoying.
Maybe the most annoying app ever
Options Limited 2/5
I like getting info from a variety of sourceS and that’s why I have yours. HNN app is SO much quicker to launch w/out a lot of pop up junk. Their stories load faster. It’s just a better app design all the way around.
Previously, I signed up for getting your notices but it never happened. Idkw was going on, but it seemed an exercise in futility. Now, there’s a pop up window asking my rating. Soon, I will be removing this app since it’s a waste of my time.
I MUCH prefer listening to HPR since I can get an executive summary quick & then get on with what I need to do. I am not one to be constantly checking messages or looking st a screen since I do work in the field & go to a part time job + attend school
Please step up the app. Make it easy to read with better contrast in font, font size changes to our liking would be good so I don’t have to don glasses. What if I want to read something that’s low down on the page? I have to swipe to see what’s there.
I really don’t care what is in the mainstream media and focus more on what things may affect me, like Haiku Stairs, weather forecast, traffic detours. Idc about COVID-19 testing positive or deaths. Really, put more ‘feel good’ stories because the world is on fire with SARS-CoV-2 and I’m interested in seeing normal life. Thank you
Too many pop ups. 3/5
Too many pop ups
Not good 2/5
Too many advertisements...
Half the time the screen is blank and I need to reboot, only on your app.
I switched to Hawaii Now, no problems
Great layout of it worked 1/5
Phone alerts work great however when clicking to open the alert one is directed to the home page and need to search for the video or article.
Most videos won’t play.
Push alerts don’t show mote info when clicked. 3/5
Why give an alert and then I click on it and it doesn’t show anything on app
So everytime I get a notification I click on it and the app opens up with no story. I can’t find the story either. It’s pointless. The notification disappears and now I have no notification or story with information. This app has taken a couple steps back like Joe Moore’s hairline
Worst news app 1/5
If you wanna watch 10 hours of commercial
Before minutes of news

Love channel 2, Take 2, living 808 but I don’t know how to get on to post my comment’s ? 🤔😑😕
Good Updates 5/5
Notifications, then no story! 3/5
I like this app, but when I click the notification headline, the story isn’t there.
Too late 3/5
Couple of issues. Push notifications for live conferences usually come out AFTER the conferences have started! And when you go to the conference, you suffer through a 30 second commercial! During this time, it’s important we get notifications of a press conference BEFORE they start, and get rid of those commercials!
App keeps freezing and crashing 1/5
This app used to be good but has so many issues with it freezing and crashing it’s not even worth using anymore. Will be deleting after this review. Had it for years, love KHON2 news but the app has turned horrible.
Very poor news app 1/5
Pops alerts and then you cannot find the story.
It is just awful. If I had paid for this I would ask for damages.
It’s wonky 2/5
By Jumbo pp
I like their weather forecasting, but the app is just frustrating. Say you receive a banner alert about “Tree down on Kamehameha Hwy” but it’s like 40 miles long and you want to know where, so you tap it, the app opens a 30 second commercial plays and when it’s done you’re at the “live stream” page with a notice that says “were not streaming now”
It’s a real let down.
Live stream ? 1/5
Live stream for every single news? What going on? Can’t even read the news? Piece of crap!
I just want to know... 2/5
You send ,e breaking headlines... I click on it and usually it doesn’t open or go to that... when it does I can’t open the story. I don’t want to watch all the time (because I can’t turn up the volume) but you rarely have the story printed... or I just can’t find the story... just ends up wasting my time and frustrating me... not to mention all the additional drama the media adds to everything.
What’s going on when i tap to “live” 2/5
I don’t know what’s going on with this version because now when i tap “live video” nothing comes on it’s just the blue screen . I tap play but nothing comes on. Please fix the app cuz can’t watch it live. Giving it 2 stars cuz i like the notification of accidents or breaking news
I’ll give it two stars for its ability to send new and weather notifications quickly- actually getting info about those notifications is another story. App relies on live streaming for almost the entirety of its news. Almost never will you click on a headline and actually get any written information about it. Also far too many ads and ad pop ups.
Most Effective! 5/5
Awesome app with the best news 24/7.
Short on any details 1/5
Never gives detail of the news. Always refer to the news. Very unsatisfactory
Better than nothing, but 2/5
Very slow. Stories are very short. So short that it’s hard to really know what’s going on. I can’t seem to separate my alerts so that I only get the traffic alerts.
Hawaii new now 5/5
Awesome, keep updated, informative and interesting!
Great news 2/5
Every time I see the headlines I want to see the article because it is after it was shown on tv. I would like to read an article pertaining to that news
Not impressed 1/5
To many adds and no videos only small amount of information on story’s, hard to find a story that has popped You go to it and there is nothing there what’s up with that?
By on da go
Because we are never home during the news we depend on the notifications. But the notifications sent by KHON majority of the time is incomplete and to watch the 6:00 news, etc.
so we immediately google or go to Hawaii news now to get the full story!
Always gotta live stream 3/5
Moving to Portland from Hawaii, I wanted to stay updated with news especially with my whole family still being there. I get a notification, but every time I click to open and read, I need to wait for the live stream instead. Is there a way I can just read about the news and not always have to live stream? Being 2 or 3 hours ahead of the time isn’t always helpful.
Happy lady 5/5
By a spirit soul
The KHON2 AP is always up-to-date and it’s easy to navigate whether it’s the latest news, weather, traffic, sports or local events. KHON has been my favorite TV news station in Hawaii for many years. Now the KHON2 AP is the only local news AP on my phone, great job👍
Need to give more information
News app 5/5
By cLiff Detty
Misses the mark 1/5
A news app should give you news. This app is either broken or poorly designed. I can’t figure out how to read the story, as when you tap the story it only avails the option to “watch” the news when it’s on, vice have a prerecorded library option. Lots of graphics titles but nothing of substance once you tap the picture. After I post this, I’m deleting the app and looking for, hoping for, any other option of being able to have some ability to read, or hear, about the information relative to me be in simply the weather or governmental issues in Hawaii.
Never shows stories tied to alerts 1/5
By Clearwater Phil
I am so tired of this app. It will send out an alert, but when you click on the alert the story isn't there or won't play. Just now, I clicked on an alert. It played, but no matter what I do, I can't get the sound to work!! Does the company that wrote this app do any testing at all? It's shameful.
By yep k den
Always on time with the news
Love keeping up
Story not available 4/5
By Hawaiian Angel
Don’t like getting an alert about something newsworthy, but then when you open the app you need to wait until a certain time to read up on it.
Great up to date news app but... 1/5
I like it when I get news notification but when I want to know more about it I need to watch it live. The only reason I want to enjoy it on my phone is so I don’t need to watch it on tv. When I click on the watch live show the story is already done so the app so kind of annoying when I see a interesting news but oh wait you need to watch live and wait till the whole story available. The news will be ready only when I guess someone enters it into the app so people can read it. It’s like reading a newspaper but only the headlines is there.
I get alerts with what sound like good stories but when I click on the banner, it takes me to a generic page with no sign of the story I clicked on. Deleting the app.
Like watching lousy tv 1/5
Too many ads. Can’t access the story easily. Deleting it.
New to island 5/5
I am new to the island and this news cast is by far given me the best information of events that I need to know concerning my new home and the mainland without channel surfing!! 😇😃
KHON2 is the best news channel ever! 5/5
Love KHON2 News I’ve been watching for 50 years!
App crashes on ipad 1/5
By Sun Star
App constantly crashed on the ipa 6th gen
If wasn’t for KHON 2 app I would not know the scoops that’s going on in Hawaii. They are so awesome. I watch the 6:00 Joe Moore and the morning news. Mahalo for all you do for our 50th State
