  • 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

    I read the Island Packet daily. It keeps me up to date with what's going on at HHI.
  • Not as Good!!

    By Unhappy HHI Reader
    The e-Edition app was far better. With its traditional newspaper layout, you knew what you were reading was today’s news. With this app you have to scroll down a lengthy list of articles, no matter the section, to ensure you haven’t missed anything. What not put today’s articles at the top of the list? Duh.
  • Great news coverage for HIlton Head and surrounding municipalities

    By Dick2621
    Our family has loved and enjoyed the news coverage which is objective and interesting. We rely on the internet version on our IPad and iPhone which makes the coverage available to us whenever and wherever. Sometimes we will get a pop-up while we are resting during a long walk on the beach or paths. It is a great way to keep up on the local news, even while we are traveling to visit our kids in NY - Mass or when we are in our summer house in the Adirondacks
