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.

One of the better HN clients out there, altho dated UI and no comments One of the better Hacker News clients out there. The user design seems a bit dated compared to other clients. Also, the latest update stopped all comments from being displayed.

Worked okay until comments magically stopped working. It takes you straight to the link and there no way to view comments
