Customer Reviews

Awesome support by developer

Although comments are currently broken, it's because hacker news has changed their html. The developer is forced to use a scraper since the official hacker news API does not support user authentication.

The developer responds promptly to feedback and has already submitted an update to fix comments, pending App Store review.

Best HNews Reader

Tried other Hacker News readers but found most to be either visually wanting or lacking in features. This seems to have all the features I'm looking for, mainly Instapaper saving and collapsible comments. The interface is clean which is to my liking as well.

The best HN reader out there

Thank you for posting this update to fix the comments issue. Having to use the official HN app for the past week was a painful reminder of just how much better your app is.
