What's New in Version 1.1.1
-iPhone autorotation support
-Place names are now in alphabetical sections with a touch index so that users can directly jump to a place name section that begins with a particular letter
-Improved aesthetic features for Retina Display and iOS 4.2
"Place names" does NOT include geographic places like Haena or Koloa. Their definition of "places" is something like "fragrant lane or path" useless when you want directions to Koloa and want to pronounce that correctly.
Easy fix if they just add geographic places for the islands.
Love the idea of the app
But there's nothing from the outer islands ... I just moved to the big island and would love this app to help me learn to pronounce places, but they have nothing from my island at all.
Hope they upgrade it so I didn't waste $2 bucks :-/
Not what it appears
Should have read the other reviews before parting with my two bucks. Useless for my needs, which were to get pronunciations of common Hawaiian places.
