iPhone Screenshots


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.

Best HN app client


Great look and feel but it has a memory leak, please fix this since it inflates the app cache size over time.

Good - Missing expanded comments


A very nice client. However I would like the option to expand all comments in one go.

This is far and away the best HN reader I have tried. Unfortunately, I have not tried many, so it may not be the best out there.

The app is bug free so far, and does everything I want. The UI, although not completely effortless or seamless, is very robust and intuitive.

Things I would like to see are: comments in a collapsing tree, rather than nested behind views; slightly more attention given to comment typography, as it is currently a little heavy and tightly leaded; and a rethink of the comment button, as I find it takes just a little too much effort to hit.

But overall, I love this app. The creators have done a great job.
