  • Very Bad App

    By PhillyFollower
    I’m a subscriber and this is the worst news app I have. App doesn’t open often. Terrible. Please fix!
  • App hasn’t worked for weeks

    By HHI-former member
    App is no longer refreshing content. Gives error message “Error fetching feeds - pull to refresh” and does not. Have deleted and reloaded numerous times.
  • Personal experience with app

    By Carolina Charlie
    For what that’s worth. I’d give the newspaper a 5 in coverage of local news. And great to have access to it on line via the app. The app is haunted on my phone however. Frequently and inconsistently app reverts (flips) to home page from selected story. Happens when just reading as well as when scrolling. Deleted and reinstalled, cleared cache, contacted help desk, and compared settings with settings of other newspaper apps on phone. Hope other users don’t have this flipping problem.
  • New app won’t open!

    Please fix your new app…it won’t open!
  • App is poorly designed

    By BobfromColonie
    The app for the Island Packet does not open all the time. It is frustrating to click on the newspaper view and the app does not always open. It just gets hung up and does not download. There are too many adds that run in the background which effects the appearance of the print text-it gets blurred when the adds open. If you click on the close add it just cycles to a new add. When prompted to enter a nick name to submit this Review it says nick name taken. I don’t believe it is taken. The word I chose is too unique. I’ll try again
  • Great HHI Insight

    By Pabquilts
    As with many HHI fans, we only live on island, part if the year. The Island Packet app allows us to stay informed about all island occurrences. We can plan activities for when we are lucky enough to be there.
  • Bring back the paper

    By New.breed
    Find new format very difficult to navigate and have no idea when and where updates come in.
  • If I could give no stars i would

    By TFB71
    Since the update it is impossible to read the packet on an ipad. I find it so difficult navigate through the pages. While reading the page goes blank or blurs. I am ready to cancel my subscription.
  • Format does not work any longer

    By 3bob78432
    I can no longer get the packet to read like the newspaper. No the paper version only show up in a small window on the side of the screen and is much too small to read. They need to go back to the old version of the app.
  • A Disaster

    By Cdavant
    Another formally useful format replaced with a junked up page, ipad disaster. If it ain’t broke why try to fix it and fail?
