The New Version Is Worse Than The Original
I don't write negative reviews of apps, but in this case I must make an exception. Following the rewrite of this app in mid 2018, it has been much worse to use than before. Now, it is not even possible to click on an image and zoom in on it; videos do not play properly and sometimes even cause the app to forget which page you are on (when an unexpected full-page pop-over ad covers over the top of the player and the article and block everything, which you can only dismiss by clicking on a small X at the top of the advertisement which then loses your context in the app); and also the front page listing of all of the stories is much more long-winded now whereas before it was a nice simple list of headlines which you could easily select. It's a shame that what could've become a much better app has actually gone from a five star to a three star app in my opinion. I would say try another Hawaii news app (I have gone back to the KITV4app for now) and keep this one on the side in the hopes that it will be improved at some point in the future.
Almost 5 stars - notifications issue
I appreciate all the news and information your app provides. I have one major gripe regarding the app. The notifications for news articles, when clicked to open and read, do not open the article. Sometimes I cannot find the article that caught my attention, especially if I click it immediately after getting the notification. If I wait a few minutes, the article becomes easier to find in the body of the news feed. I don’t believe that is intentionally the way the app’s experience is intended to flow, but if it is intentional, then it is a somewhat of a systematic waste of time, taking much longer to get the information that originally prompted the click, and sometimes not at all. Please continue providing great content. Please consider looking into the issue.
Opens safari when I get notifications
I use the app daily for all my news and weather updates. When I get an update and click on it it opens a safari window with a screen that has nothing in it. I want to know if you can get rid of that. It’s useless. It asks me to open the app to get live streams and updates.
I give it two stars just for existing. But it’s annoying when I get a notification for news and when I click on the notification it takes me to the app but nothing about that article is there. This happens the majority of the time. Even if I click on “News” the article usually isn’t appearing there either. When someone gets a notification of a news bit, shouldn’t clicking on it take you directly there so you can read it? This means the news on this app is very delayed and not in sync with the notifications. Please fix!
I agree completely with this critique! I understand you need ads but when I click on HNN (esp. when it’s “breaking” news why do I see ads/msg saying you’ll be back soon? I can get quicker news from MSNBC, CBS, etc
Not organized, can’t find alerts
When the “traffic” tab is open there’s nothing about traffic, just other news stories. Why have tabs if all the news is just sorted randomly? Example: I received an alert about a road closure but when I click on the alert it only takes me to the main page and I can’t find anything about the traffic alert or road closure. (This happens a LOT.)
I enjoy reading and keeping up to date with what is happening in Hawaii. I have been saddened watching the changes on the beautiful island. Hawaii being run by Democrats. High taxes, crime. We are heading back to Hawaii now and in January and that will be our last time. Your Senator Hirono was an embarrassment and not very smart. Definitely no Aloha for her and a sad example. We have been coming to have for 30 years and it is just not the islands we use to know!
This app is terrible if you want to live stream the news. It is very glitchy and cuts out all the time. And that’s only if you’ve been lucky enough to get it to play the news at all. Sometimes all you get are ads, punctuated by dead airwaves, then more ads. HNN really needs to hold this app developer to a higher standard and make sure that their content is properly delivered to eager content consumers. I give this app one star because you can’t give zero stars. DO BETTER HNN.
No push notifications anymore!
After the new software update, I havent been receiving notifications. I thought maybe it was my new upgraded iPhone XS, so I deleted the app and redownloaded the app, and still it doesn’t work. I Checked my phone notification settings AND also within the app alert settings and all are switched ON. I’m frustrated and annoyed bc I’m dependent on alerts for any important news updates in my area. Pls fix it now.
Latest App Update not good
I have really liked the HNN app and watch live news coverage every morning, but they just updated it and changed the format. Now it is sterile and difficult to use. Where is Sunrise and some of the other special coverages? Also less pictures and videos. Go back to the old format!
Frustrating- Push Notifications links to Web Live Stream instead of app
Please FIX HNN Push notifications : Very frustrated with behavior of screen push Notifications links to unrelated stories on Web Live Stream instead of specific story on HNN phone app itself ... no options to change preferences to have push notifications to open the story within the app. It’s been this way since I installed it in 2015... please fix this!!!!
HHN is the best news crew on the network!!! I look forward to hearing and watching you every day!! Especially online!! Your app is easy and fast!! Love you guys!! Much aloha for all your hard work! Roxann Williams
Too much ads
When I am reading the news an ad just pops up same with the weather it is annoying. That is the only issue with this app I think should be taken away. Of the ads popping up like this. Than I have to reread it again. Trying to find where I left off at.
The app is good keeping people updated and when something happens BUT when the notification pops up about a story and you touch it to read the story you are most of the time lead to the homepage; and the story you wanted to read isn’t even on there! So annoying.
Impossible to watch live
I appreciate that the app keeps me updated with notifications but it’s nearly impossible to watch live. After streaming for less than five minutes, it completely freezes & won’t restart even if I pause to let it buffer & this is happening on LTE. Please fix this issue to make this app useful.
