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.

If you like the app, please consider Matthew Bishop if you're looking for an Android developer (for freelance or hire)! Please direct all inquiries to [email protected]

Recent changes:
v2.1.6

Hotfix for broken comments page due to some changes HN made. The reply functionality is temporarily disabled until it gets fixed. Other than that, let me know if you see any other problems.

Also thanks to @pkillian the search page works again.

Good browser, can't comment This app is great for reading Hacker News, but there is room for improvement. Commenting hasn't worked for months and the share function is a bit buried. Decreased rating from 4 to 3 due to ongoing comment outage.

Great but for a new regression A recent update seems to have taken out the ability to see comments/reply. Now when you click on any item on the front page it takes you directly to the article, and not the comments page.
