Custom App Spotlight: ‘Ōlelo’s Mobile App


'Ōlelo Community Media is a non-profit organization located in Hawaii, dedicated to providing media education and community access to television production resources. The organization's mission is to empower community members to tell their own stories and share their perspectives through media production. 'Ōlelo offers a wide range of services to the community, including media training, equipment rental, studio facilities, and cablecast distribution. By providing these resources, 'Ōlelo seeks to promote local voices and perspectives that are often underrepresented in traditional media.

Collaborating with 'Ōlelo was both rewarding and inspiring. Developing their mobile app allowed us to contribute to their mission of empowering individuals through media literacy and community engagement. We're honored to support 'Ōlelo in their efforts to enrich the lives of people in Hawaii.

The 'Ōlelo app offers several features to its users.

Another feature is the Live Traffic, which enables users to stream the City and County of Honolulu's traffic cam feeds in real time. 'Ōlelo also has an online journal of events happening within the organization called NEWS. Users can browse 'Ōlelo's TV listings using the Schedule feature. Additionally, clients of 'Ōlelo can access a client resource tool powered by Media Center Manager (MCM) to create their own 'Ōlelo projects, manage equipment/studio reservations, and sign up for training.

Super impressed with thought put into this app and the execution. Surpasses apps of cable providers such as Spectrum. Well done!


Community access typically is the B-Rated movue of the network station world. Not so with this app! It has a clean look and the interface smartly has the most used functions easily accessible. Best part, the speed and sharpness of the live stream! Hawaii News Now and Netflix watch out! This app is crazy fast!


This app is great and so user friendly. So far there have been zero hiccups!
