Please note: because of our extensive use of hundreds of images, the app requires an internet connection to view images, otherwise the app would be too large to fit on most devices. Most text is readable without an internet connection after the first time the app is launched.

App crashes immediately but try agin

Cleopatra peanut

App crashes immediately when you open right after download link. Close the app completely and open again. And customer support link does not work. Very bummed.
From within the app I was able to contact customer service so hopefully they'll fix

Nice app though. Like a travel magazine. You can bookmark favorites and links take you to pages with more info. Some nice general history of Hawaii and Maui. It has limited listing in each category. But it's certainly s nice start. I found that some of my favorite restaurants and activities from 17 yrs ago are still there. It's worth the free download and little hassle opening. But I bet the crashing is why they have no reviews.

Great concept


This ap could be so useful. Two problems: first, application does not work well on iPad. Can’t scroll beyond first page, so lengthy pages are invisible. Second, the ap is not updated often enough. New venues not covered at all. Could be great.

Best Maui Guide app!!!


I go to Maui pretty frequently and have over the past couple years and I had no idea I was missing so much before I got this app!!! Has really great info on anything you'd wanna do. Beaches, restaurants, different activities like zip lining and hiking, it has it all. It's a definite must have if you're going to Maui!
