Post Comments Feature Certainly makes accessing Hacker News a lot easier. That being said, I am patiently waiting for the 'Post Comment' feature.

Great App Great App, I really like it. But there doesn't seem to be an easy way to open the article in a browser like Chrome.

No home screen widget I've tried a few Hacker News apps and really like this one. The lack of a home screen widget means I need to look elsewhere though :(

Excellent Love this app. Works perfectly. Sometimes links don't work but otherwise it's great. I prefer to use this over my phone's browser because of the word wrap. My only gripe is that you can't see past the top links on the site.
