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.

My goto HN app

Routinely fails to display content. Content tab completely blank very often, have to open in browser. Defeats the whole purpose of using the app.

Software shadow of former self Comments and points are gone. This was my hacker news client of choice for the past two years. I hope it is restored to its former glory. Getting reply functionality would be nice too, although this app hasn't had that for a very long time - Update: points and comments came back, so one more star. Not sure what happened! 5 stars for working replies!

OK for browsing, but the page with comments fails to load if my user placed a comment on there. Also polls fail to load at all.

Good but article view isn't great Very nice app! This app is what got me to read the comments for the articles, like the swiping navigation from article to comments. Also nice to have the browser button, as the article view isn't always rendered great
