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.
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.

Aloha, mahalo for your support of our products. Maps are on the forefront of our agenda at the moment. We are working 24/7 and hope to have a better option soon. Feel free to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any problems or for updates.
Good app but needs multi-device syncing
Very nice resource for travels to paradise! Sold as a “companion” to the book (which I bought first), it is essentially identical to the book (as far as I can tell?), which kinda makes the book itself obsolete... so bear that in mind if you’re looking at both this and the ebook.
One star subtracted because I wanted to use this both on my iPad and my iPhone... the tablet while on the plane (or lanai!), phone while out & about. It works beautifully on both devices, BUT: favorites aren’t synced! So I’ve ended up with essentially two parallel resources that I have to reconcile manually. The website says they’re working on it... but I think that’s a semi-major gap (at least IMHO). Since I’ve signed up for an account, can’t the two devices just “talk?”
Overall nice work... if the device syncing worked, this would be a solid 5-star review.
