No investigative reporting

Dr Jack Black

The improvements made since the lost of competition has been remarkable. However the RIF of people has begun to take a toll on the quality of reporting I feel. We all know that Hawaii is a 2 Party State, there’s the City of Honolulu and the State of Hawaii parties, both Democratic Parties seem in constant battles with each other. Both waste the taxpayers money. Investigative reporting is almost nonexistent in Hawaii. Finally your comic pages are excellent! My favorite and have to read! Please make them easier to find! Your app and newspaper hide them.

Here in Aloha Land


Generally a great app that continues to improve. I like the traffic part, where not only can I find out about traffic here, I can find out all over the world.

Additionally, this app has improved because of a additional features. One that I found lacking is that if The Internet is not available, I cannot read their articles offline. While their partner USA Today allows people to read articles offline.

Better than last app


The app is better than the last app. However there are a lot of bugs in this one too. First you cannot remember your premium login so this means so far I've had to re-login every time I've opened up the app. Second the premium section does not recognize my login info. I can login fine but when I try to read a premium story it continues to show just a tid bit of text and a link to login. Also there are too much ads, stop that. We already paid you money to use the newspaper, at that point we should see MINIMAL to NO ads!
