News has never been more local than in the palm of your hand. The KHON2 mobile app brings you all the top stories from our daily broadcasts, as well as stories developing in real time.
Stay informed with the latest news, weather and sports across Hawaii. From Hilo to Kauai, we're the news team that is Working for Hawaii to bring you live streaming coverage of breaking news.
• Watch video of your trusted reporters on the scene, and read revealing articles on what's going on in your community.
• Plan your day and week with detailed weather reports, live alerts of severe conditions, and an interactive radar map.
• Optional alerts on breaking news keep you in the know.
• On the go? Save stories for later to access at your convenience.
The news is important; that's why we work to make it easier to access in our app.
-This latest build brings you larger, more legible text on articles and a design change to our video player that makes the mute and closed caption icons easier to tap.
-Videos from the top of our article pages will shrink down and stick to the top of the screen as you pass them so you can keep an eye on the visual part of the story while you scan the page. Prefer to focus on the text? Just swipe the video up and away to close.
-Just some backend performance work this time around to make sure your experience stays smooth.
We've also fixed a handful of bugs.
Ratings and Reviews
I recently moved from Hawaii to Colorado but I kept all my Hawaii news apps on my phone. And I’ve come to find out that while I know that I can’t see the live streaming 24 seven, but when I cannot see the live streaming there’s always a tutorial of some kind that I can read, so that I can catch up on the news and happenings locally. On the other app I sometimes only have the option of live streaming and not any information in reading form! Thank you so much KHON!! You keep me in touch with the islands that still hold many family and friends!
Holy moly... 3rd time reviewing this train wreck of an app. So riddled with advertising and minimal news that it’s unusable. Deleting it tonight after all these years because the latest version is just that awful. Will stick to the other local news station app from now on.
The new version has LESS news than before, requires you click links for articles that then take you out of the app and into a browser, then you have to close “click to continue reading” anything more than the first paragraph, so to read another story, you then must first reverse like 3 times. This update was like trading in a 1994 Ford Taurus for a 1989 toyota Tercel... just when you thought it couldn't get worse... it did. And so many forced video commercials, the whole experience leaves a bad taste.
Don’t even bother downloading this. If you do, think back to this review after 3 days and you’ll think, “Wow, he was right!”.
I like getting info from a variety of sourceS and that’s why I have yours. HNN app is SO much quicker to launch w/out a lot of pop up junk. Their stories load faster. It’s just a better app design all the way around.
Previously, I signed up for getting your notices but it never happened. Idkw was going on, but it seemed an exercise in futility. Now, there’s a pop up window asking my rating. Soon, I will be removing this app since it’s a waste of my time.
I MUCH prefer listening to HPR since I can get an executive summary quick & then get on with what I need to do. I am not one to be constantly checking messages or looking st a screen since I do work in the field & go to a part time job + attend school
Please step up the app. Make it easy to read with better contrast in font, font size changes to our liking would be good so I don’t have to don glasses. What if I want to read something that’s low down on the page? I have to swipe to see what’s there.
I really don’t care what is in the mainstream media and focus more on what things may affect me, like Haiku Stairs, weather forecast, traffic detours. Idc about COVID-19 testing positive or deaths. Really, put more ‘feel good’ stories because the world is on fire with SARS-CoV-2 and I’m interested in seeing normal life. Thank you
