Awesome App!


This a great app! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed touring Kauai with the Shaka App as our guide. Loved the history, the great tips, suggestions, the music and the great sense of humor of the guide. I highly recommend this app! If this is your first visit to Kauai, don’t waste any more time and buy all three Kauai apps. You won’t be sorry!

Can't say enough great things

about this app!!!!!


Can't say enough great things about this app!!!!!
I can't even imagine what we would have missed out on if we hadn't purchased this app. This was the most amazing vacation! Our time spent exploring was so awesome with the easy directions, tips, and stories along the way! We were able to find places that we wouldn't have been able to locate otherwise. It allowed us to sit back and relax without constantly having to refer to the book. I plan to buy the apps when I visit other Hawaiian islands. Almost everything mentioned on the app was worth the stop along the way!!!!! Thank you for creating this app. We had the time of our life!!!!!! We plan to visit a lot of the beaches next time and do more hiking at some of the locations that we stopped at on the tours.
