How do you tell what you've upvoted? Would like a dark theme.

Can't reply or vote There is no reply which they have acknowledged and unfortunately no other app seems to have this important feature. Whenever I try to vote it is grayed out and days already voted. I like the design though.

Best HN reader but lacking functions I think this is the best reader for HN based on simplicity alone, but critically it lacks the ability - like all HN readers - to reply to comments. Also it does not give a clear way to up/down vote comments or posts and AFAIK it doesn't actually have that functionality.

When opening a link directly from another program it only shows comments. (Open in browser fails) Otherwise it's a good app
