What's New in Version 2.9.6
General bug fixes and improvements.
As close to perfection as it gets
Easily the best HN client for iOS. Clean, responsive, functional.
EDIT: downvoted comments are unreadable against the "dark mode" background. turning brightness up (flipping background to white and disabling "dark mode") fixes the issue. subtracting one star til this is resolved – presumably one way to do this would be to simply invert the text color of downvoted comments on "dark mode"
The best HN client on the App Store
I've tried every HN client available over the past few years and this beats them all. You can comment, flick back from the view hierarchy (most HN clients haven't even been recompiled since iOS 6), the typography is clean and comments are collapsible. Everything I need.
This app is well worth the price. It's beautifully designed, is very useful and has useful settings. Can't recommend highly enough, definitely the best HN app I've found.
