Great app. Easy to swipe to various articles. I like getting the 8:00 am notification that there are new articles posted. Easy fonts for reading. And of course, the quality of reporting on Hawai’i issues is fantastic. Any plans for an iPad app?

Good but not great

I gets the job done, but the feed seems too restrictive and is claustrophobic trying to browse. The old layout is better but it still gets me my news
