Ratings and Reviews
Great Information, Good App
First I’ll lead off by saying this is a wealth of information about the islands that is constantly being updated and an absolute must have with the subscription to any island you’re spreading more than a day on. Beach info is updated daily with surf/snorkeling conditions which is awesome. Restaurant info is spot on. We ate at almost exclusively recommended places and never came away disappointed.
The only reason I docked a star is for the app itself which, while fairly well laid out and easy to navigate, had some annoyances like a structures that were sometimes circular referencing and sometimes had multiple locations that seemed like they had *almost* the same info but were slightly different for some reason. The layout also makes it really easy to go way down a rabbit hole of links and redirects that you have to backtrack through or jump all the way home. Just made it hard to go back to that exact page you were looking for sometimes. One other quibble was that the vertical infinite scrolling effect was far too sensitive at the bottom of the page which let to me scrolling past where I wanted about 450 times on the trip.

Aloha, Mahalo for the great feedback on the app. We really appreciate comments like yours. We are constantly trying to decide where the fine line is between linking internally (sort of like the page refs in our printed books). And we appreciate the scroll comments, too. We did give option to go to a list format within sections or to scroll depending on user preferences. We will be looking again at the scroll feature in future releases. We hope you return to Hawaii again soon for another visit.
Not worth it if you already have the book
I purchased the Big Island Revealed book and found it to be such a wealth of knowledge that I also checked out the app. With all the recent changes in the Big Island with the 2018 eruption, I was hoping to find updated information from the printed book, but the sections are the same. If you prefer an app to a book, this would be a great resource. However, personally, I prefer the book because it has more maps and guidance so you have a better understanding of where things are. The app has a map but you have to zoom in close to see the mile markers and you lose the view of the whole island. I also found the book better organized for the way i personally think. The only benefit of the app is that you can save favorites which might be easier to access on a trip instead of carrying a book with you.
I realize they did add a section on the lava flow update, but the information was provided in the free version. I was hoping for more detailed information on how to visit volcano National Park post-2018 and where in Puna we can legally and respectfully see the effects of the 2018 lava flow.
This is a great resource if you do NOT have the book, but not necessary if you do.

Thank you for using our book and the app. We were sorry to hear that you were not happy with the app, but we are confused. We have published thousands of changes on the app, mainly due to the lava flows, since the print version of our book came out. We provide some of that information for free in the app as a courtesy, but many, many more changes have occurred in the last year and are reflected in our up-to-date app. Also, you requested that the map show all the mile markers while zoomed out. Unfortunately, because the island is 4,000 square miles, in order to see all of the mile markers at the zoomed out level, we would have to cover the entire island with nothing but mile markers, and even then we would not be able to show them all. That’s why it is necessary to zoom in to see the mile markers.
Moreover, our app is regularly updated, and the majority of our users have both the app and the book. They find the books are much better when they are away from the island and planning their trip whereas the app is more useful when they are on the island, and need easy access to our content. However, the preference of digital vs physical book differs from user to user.
Feel free to reach us at email@example.com if you have any additional problems. We would love to guide you on how to use the maps and find any info you require. Mahalo!
Update: it's working much better since the latest release.
I’ve been using their books and the old apps for years and find them indispensable. It’s taken me a while to get used to the new app, but I always have a learning curve when faced with software updates too. This is a visually beautiful app. It started out pretty buggy. I think they released it a bit too soon. But they’ve been addressing most of the problems and their customer service has been very responsive… something I greatly appreciate in this age when most companies’ idea of customer service is to direct you to their forums where other customer have the same questions you do.
My main issues are with the maps (the old app maps were so much better) and having the app subscription default to auto-renew (though their FAQs do tell you how to cancel that). But it’s still a really good and useful app when you're out and about in the islands, especially if used in conjunction with the books.
