Great app with bugs I like this app, and have used it for a while. It is the best Hacker News app I have encountered so far. I appreciate it's simplicity. I have noticed recently that bugs have been slipping in, but they are generally fixed soon thereafter. Despite this project being available at github, I forget that I could file a bug there.
