Almost perfect

This is a great app and what I’ve been looking for for years! However, I can’t seem to find a way to delete a highlight. This is really annoying when you make an error or no longer want to see a highlight on your profile.

Doesn’t Actually Work

Some problems to address:

1) Every time I highlight something anywhere on the web, it gives me the yellow loading icon and that’s it. After that it doesn’t go anywhere. I tried using several different browsers as well as articles from other apps like news and social media, but no go. It just doesn’t work at all for me.

2) When I tried looking for a help menu, or troubleshooting tips, there was none to be found. The only option in the app is to contact customer service and i don’t want to waste time going back and forth. Developers should provide an FAQ or Help Menu within app so that users can go back and see if they missed something from the original instructions.

3) You can’t save or share other people’s highlights! I thought the whole point of this app was to highlight and save your content and see and share other people’s content? If we can’t do that then what’s the purpose of the main feed? We are supposed to watch and say “oooo”? There is no button or option on other people’s feed through which we can share their original article so this needs to be fixed asap. We should be able to re-share other people’s highlights, but on top of that, we should also be able to save other people’s articles if we just want them for private viewing.

Overall i was so excited for this concept but it fell flat and now I am sad! I hope the developers can fix these bugs and make the app more use-able!

Transformative social media content sharing

This app is a refreshing social media platform for sharing genuine written content both personally and professionally. In a world of algorithm image-based inundation, Hivelighter provides an avenue for folks to access and share meaningful content without judgement and noise. As a voracious consumer of professional articles, academic papers and e-zines of personal interests and hobbies, this app is the perfect daily vehicle for sharing my findings and learning from others in a trusted environment devoid of clutter and commentary. I highly recommend that folks give Hivelighter a try!
