This is probably the first Hacker News client on AppStore that uses the newly introduced official Firebase HN API. One of the cool features of the new API are updates pushed in real time. There’s no need to keep refreshing the client, as the number of points and the number of comments for each story are updated automatically. If you wish to reload the stories completely, simply pull to refresh.
With its clean layout, you will definitely love the flat user interface. What's more, you can always adjust the comments' font size by going to iOS's Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Larger Text and dragging the slider.
Hacker News Client is completely open source. Feel free to contribute.

Simple, beautiful and to the point. Exactly what it should be.
Not a good experience
The app is well designed, but lacks functionality and worst of all, completely locks up whenever it is loading data from the server.
Would love the ability to send articles to myself or others to view on desktop.
Awesome! But must clear cache
Awesome app! Thank you for it. After using daily for a couple of months its size grows rather large. I had to delete and install again. It should avoid accumulating the cache, or having a button to clear it like Engadget does.
