Customer Reviews

awesome app. 1 wish

i really like this app for catching up on HN, but one great improvement would be offline capabilities. caching recent articles or even being able save them locally would be wonderful.

i know this is no small task, but it would further separate this app from the rest. i would even pay for that feature as an addon. ;)

keep up the good work

The only free usable Hacker News app so far

This is the first and only Hacker News iOS app I've discovered that supports logging in, commenting, and seeing new replies to your comments.


This is unfortunately the best hacker news app which is a shame because its mediocre at best. The reader is just a web page so there's no full screen reading mode like reddit blue and considering the entire purpose is to read that is awful. Also logging in will forever give me a "server error".
