Hawaii1973's Review of Khon2 NewsReviewed on 8/19/18 4:30 AM
I have been having some issues with this KHON2 app. It opens fine but when I would click on a particular article it opens then incorrect article so I would click the button to go back. And when I do that, the entire screen goes white. Its been happening every single time I do this! COULD YOU PLEASE FIX THIS? Thank you.

Updated Review: The app has improved greatly since my first review (see below). The issues listed have been resolved. HOWEVER, the app developer took away the ability to email a link to a story. When I called the station and talked to their IT person, he said that their developer thought it wasn't important and if I wanted to email a link, I would have to go to the website and email the story from there! If I have to go to the website to get the full functionality that all other phone apps already have, WHY BOTHER WITH THE APP!?! Hawaii News Now still has a fully functional app! I'm giving a rating of only two stars due to the arrogance and shortsightedness of the app developer. Original Review: S - L - O - W! Wake me up when it loads! 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.

Change is not always good. I liked the way the old app was laid out, easy to use. The new app is not user friendly and provides less information.

I get more news from my app than on tv, actually. I don't always watch the news but I use the app every day. If I see there is big news, I tune in to khon2 news on tv that night. With the new update I don't see a way to get to the Front Page when starting the app by clicking on the notification, and after reading that article. Clicking on the khon2 logo used to do it. Also, I get that ads are important but one ad per video is too much, especially since the ads are sometimes longer than the video. Imagine if the nightly news were like that. Because of that, I rarely watch the videos and appreciate having the option to read the story myself.

Not the place for detailed news but more than sufficient to let one know if one needs to engage in further research on a story. Utilitarian App worth a try.
