Cant share using Share Via API I can't send URLs from my browser or other apps to HN using the Share Via API. Kind of sad, this is the best tablet UI for an HN app I've seen, this would otherwise be a 5 star rating if it had that feature.

Best HN reader so far! Very nice looking app with great promise, works well on jellybean. Lacks login and commenting support. Some suggestions for the future: a feature to scroll down and view older posts. Might think about pulling the comments via and api (or screenscraping them) so they can be displayed natively. A feature to collapse comments would be great, like baconreader does.
