In 1888, when Hawai‘i was still a monarchy, King Kalakaua commissioned a magazine under royal charter to be Hawai‘i’s ambassador to the world. That magazine was Paradise of the Pacific. In 1966, Paradise of the Pacific became HONOLULU Magazine and shifted focus dramatically. No longer would it just promote local business and tourism to the United States. It became a magazine by and for the people of the Islands. Today, HONOLULU is among the handful of publications in the U.S. that have chronicled the events of an entire century. It is, in fact, the longest established magazine west of the Mississippi and the only monthly city magazine in the state of Hawai‘i….and it continues today. Every month Honolulu residents rely on HONOLULU magazine for revealing profiles, discerning dining and cultural guides, in-depth features, informed commentary and authoritative Best-of lists.

Still does not load new issues without....

...deleting and downloading the app again. No offline reading and portrait mode for pictures that span two pages. The ZINIO version was much better, should’ve gone back to them.


Honolulu magazine-can't view magazines

UPDATE: Still can not get Jan. 2017 would love a refund for the last three issues I will not be able to read!! I have had this subscription for a couple years and all of a sudden I haven't been able to download the January issue for the last few weeks. I have gone through the Apple steps and contacted the magazine directly with no resolution. I found the most recent subscription and clicked report a problem (to Apple) & that leads to an error message from Apple. I have the subscription through March 2017 but it appears I will never get to see those three issues! Unsatisfied customer!


Terrible app!

As a new subscriber, I've received my first print issue, but there is no access to the digital editions, even though their website still sells it that way! They'll certainly let u buy the issues that show up however, but why would it allow a "subscriber" to even buy digital issues when it's supposed to be included w the print subscription...makes no sense? All this nonsense is business as usual I suppose, remembering how things work in Hawaii. Buyers, do not subscribe if u want any form of a digital subscription!
