This app is horrible. Constantly crashes and it can’t keep up on live stream. Deleting now.

Annoying

The app hasn’t ever worked as far as news alerts. When I click on them I am not taken to the article because it doesn’t exist. Just a webpage for live broadcasts which doesn’t show any actual live broadcasts. Lately, when I click play to watch a news video, it will play the ad fine but then the news clip starts with no sound. So frustrating.

WORST HAWAII NEWS APP

HNN is my favorite news channel but you guys have the WORST app. Since I’ve downloaded it, I will always get notifications but as soon as I click the notification, it will take me to the app but then the story I clicked on disappears and is nowhere to be found in the app. It’s the worst. It also was like that for my boyfriend & my mom when they used the app. We all ended up deleting it & now have the KHON app now. Please fix this problem & I will gladly download the app again. Until then KHON it is.

You push this app on the TV, but yet it doesn’t function. I get a teaser notice on my iPhone of an important event... I click the teaser and I wait about 30 sec for the app to load, I can see the the video button and the clip I want to see... I click play and then an ad plays instead. The ad plays... I’ve used the skip button and watched the whole ad but receive the same bad result. After I’ve suffered through the ad, the meat I’m looking for never comes. The video just spins and spins never playing the clip. Frustrated I look for a place to comment to say, “this crap is a useless waste of time and I feel ripped off only having to be force fed an ad with no pay back!” Fix the app before you push it on TV please, this should be an embarrassment. Hope that helps Aloha

Great updates but hard to navigate

App gives you great notification updates on what’s currently going on in the state but doesn’t seem to work like it should. For example, I get a notification on my lock screen and what is presented peaks my interest so I slide to open it which opens the app and then opens safari to load the live feed or most recent video. I don’t want that. I want to read the article you just notified me about. Going back to the app only frustrates you more because you can’t even find the article that was just presented to you.

So hard to find the news!

So I get a push notification about a crash in the freeway, I click it to see more details, it takes me to the app, but it is not whatever the notification was about. I scroll and I scroll and never find any more details abt the crash. You would think there would be a breaking news section for these types of things? Also, I am not a fan of all the videos. Sometimes I just like to read and not have to wait for videos that take forever to load. I have the same issue with the website. The news would say “find out more at our website”, but it is SO hard to find things on there. It’s so disorganized.

Poor

This app is pretty bad. The best part about the app is that it gives updates on my locked screen regularly to let me know if something important is going on. However, unlike the KHON2 and KITV4 apps I have, the HNN app will always take me to the live story, before they even air it. This results in me being directed to a black screen with no added information. Often times I will try to exit back to the Hawaii News Now home page on the app, and be unable to find the story all together. I love Hawaii News Now, but please please please update the app to allow us to read the story. Those of us who have busy schedules would love to watch the story, but it’s much easier to read a short update than to wait a few minutes for the story to air.

Frustrating Notifications to Nowhere

I’m personally affected by the lava activity in Leilani Estates, so I turned on notifications so I’m on top of the news. Unfortunately, when I click on a notification as soon as I’m alerted, I find myself watching an advertisement and invariably, a screen that informs me that they’ll be right back. And I wait. And I wait. I’m turning off notifications for this app. I’ll visit my other sources manually.

Junk

Same pictures for the same story ten days ago. If they can't get updated pictures, don't post another story.
