Clean and fast

Since the ycombinator site is frustrating to read comments on I decided to try this app.

Super fast, very clean and gets the job done. Not sure about the posting functionality as I am a lurker.

I only wish it was 3D Touch ready for previewing links. Still a wonderful app none the less.

Pretty good

Decent interface that makes reading Hacker News more pleasant on mobile. The big glaring issue is that they don't use the Safari Web View Controller for reading web content so you don't get the familiar interface combined with your own extensions (like content blockers)

The best hacker news app I have seen

No weird stuff. Functions like you would expect. Thematically fits the website.

I have tried many different HN apps, this is one I can finally settle on.
