Hacker News 2

Hacker News 2


A Hacker News (news.ycombinator.com) client for Android phones with a focus on the user interface. You can login, upvote, and reply to stories and comments. It scrapes the data directly from the site, so it should be a little more reliable than something that uses a third party API.

Features:
- Search capability
- Tablet support
- Folding comment threads
- Share articles and comments easily
- Submit new stories
- High contrast for ease of reading
- Light and dark themes
- Control text size

Best of all; it's open source! We welcome pull requests. Check it out at https://github.com/bishopmatthew/HackerNews

Submit issues through GitHub, and we'll respond with timeframes for features and fixes.

The best of a bad bunch. This is the best HN client out there. Nice tight layout, color schemes, article/comment control. I wish comments worked.
