I have been sequestered on the mainland for the past 16 months waiting to come back home, reading the TGI everyday wondering when I can come home and what I will find!! So many things are different now!! I am hoping I will be welcomed home by my brothers and sisters!!
Aloha Kauai Many Mahalos!!!

Latest major revisions very poor after being an outstanding app for many years

I have used this app for several years and found it to be an outstanding way to keep-up with news about The Garden Island. However, the developers released a major revision a few weeks ago that has dropped my rating from 5-star to 2-star.

The main reasons for my displeasure with the newest version:
1. "Local news" now includes stories from all the islands it seems, and there is no obvious way to select only stories relating to Kauai. Previously, all the stories related to Kauai only with an occasional non-Kauai story. Makes The Garden Island newspaper just seem like a poor-man's version of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser!

2. Layout is much busier and more confusing than previous versions even though one can easily switch between a list view and a tile view.

3. I urge TGI to consider offering different options to charge for reading full news stories on this app rather than relying on a fixed subscription model. A low cost per story or per day charge would I believe produce a good model and good income for TGI.

Please make the app Kauai-focused once again to keep me using this app!

Hit or miss

Sometimes I read this and think: are we on the same planet? They miss the biggest news, cover only feel-good or easy stories, and there’s no original work. Something truly newsworthy can happen and it’s never mentioned. Not. At. All. Good for knowing what’s happening for farmer’s markets, etc. but not if you want to know what’s happening politically or what is newsworthy. Take a journalism class already editors.
