Sign-in issue fixed :) I had the "an unknown error occurred" error when trying to sign in for a while, but it's fixed now and I can go back to using the HN app that I love best.

UI needs improving Solid attempt, but it needs a better interface: Up-vote with one click, hide post until refresh, long press folds comments by default, and a few other things. Look at the popular reddit apps for ideas on a good UI. Great job with the instructions darkening the entire screen except the focal region. Good UX decision there.

The best way to read HN on Android. I use it every day... okay, every hour.
