My go-to hacker news app, love the login access for voting
Comments not working Kinda useless without them, waiting for a fix. Otherwise it's my favourite HN app! Edit: Now fixed, woo!
This was the best for a while but upvotes no longer work, comments stopped working ages ago. I still love the interface but the app only half works. So sad. I'd pay for this to work.
Can't see comments Not sure why, but this app no longer displays HN comments. No fix for a week and I had to switch to a competitor. Sorry.
Works great. When HN changes format it can break the app but developers typically respond quickly to fix the issue.
One of the better HN clients out there, altho dated UI and no comments One of the better Hacker News clients out there. The user design seems a bit dated compared to other clients. Also, the latest update stopped all comments from being displayed.
Worked okay until comments magically stopped working. It takes you straight to the link and there no way to view comments
What happened to the comments? This was a pretty good app, until I got around to updating it recently.
Needs to be updated Discussion no longer shows up as of 4/18
Best HN reader This HN reader has intiutive options and works well. The developers keep it updated so it's very reliable.
Great app Great app, my preferred HN client. Developers quick to fix bugs caused by HN changing their code.
UX is bad * when tap on an article firstly comments section opens instead of the article itself. * if orientation changes the article is get refreshed/reloaded * no caching is done through app, offline reading is not possible even the article is seen very soon before
Excelent app! Very useful.
Buggy Has a lot of issues loading HN content. Galaxy Note 4.
Sleek This is one of the better designed apps. I wish I could comment and reply to comments.
Great UI for HN Excellent app to reading HN. It has access to Ask, Show and ofc New & Top. Everything what I need to pleasurable use it.
Huh? App is not able to fetch comments anymore :(
Not able to get comments anymore...
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!
Significant flaws. Broken Can't downvote even if logged in, and can't see the score of one's own comments. Also, I would prefer to use the more standard share menu rather than the app's custom one. Otherwise, it's pretty great. Best HN app I've found so far. EDIT: Downgrading to 3 stars. As others here have confirmed, it's been without the ability to comment for many months now. Too bad. EDIT2: Now, many months later, it is completely unable to refresh.
Was my app of choice for HN ... It suddenly stopped being able to refresh. Don't know whether this is an app issue or a hacker news issue.
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
Great app, but no comments I loved this app and I use it daily. In one of the latest releases the ability to view comments was removed.
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.
No longer able to display articles, worthless at this point. 5 stars to 1 star.
Can't connect I used to use this app everyday and loved it! Just recently the app stopped being able to connect to HN and download content
Routinely fails to display content. Content tab completely blank very often, have to open in browser. Defeats the whole purpose of using the app.
best. I wish it saved the scroll position.
Was the best, but can no longer refresh Worked great for a long time, but sometime in the last two weeks it lost the ability to download new articles.
Used to be good
Can't comment Not entirely sure when it happened, but with recent versions there's no reply/comment button available. I refrained from decreasing the grade to 3*, since I expected it to be fixed fairly quickly, but it wasn't. I'm on an Xperia Z.
Pros & cons I think it looks great and functions well, I wish it was easier to open article on browser and want to be able to make comments and replies. Also could have indication of read links
Embedded page view looks meh The embedded page view looks bad on certain news. The app should use Instapaper or something similar to display web pages inside it.
Great but for a new regression A recent update seems to have taken out the ability to see comments/reply. Now when you click on any item on the front page it takes you directly to the article, and not the comments page.
Really good, but I've found a bug. If you attempt to share a text post, only the title will be shared and not the url for the post.
No reply option Looks good, but no way to reply to other people's comments. Used this app for a long time but, testing other HN apps now.
Clean interface. Has all the features that you would normally need. Share buttons conveniently hidden and available when needed. No unnecessary clutter in the UI.
Load more in new posts didnt works...
Too many bugs It takes you straight to the link and there no way to view comments. Update: I heard last issue was fixed so I installed again but it crashes when I try to comment.
Broken Can't search. Can't submit. Sometimes can't login and have to reinstall to fix.
Good for reading Great information density and easy to use compared to the other fancy HN apps. Voting had been unreliable for a while now, however.
Great except... Upvoting seems to not work most of the time, and I still can't figure out how to comment on articles :). Also reply button seems to crash the app!
The only HN reader with Open in browser and no awful adverts.
At your own risk ! Don't know what this app means,don't forget to think," Whatever you do, it may come back to "haunt" you. In your wallet or doing time.
Works well when it works There have been several updates just plain breaking this app on a nexus 10. When it does work, it works fairly well.
Was looking for: open source, submitting stories to HN via android share, voting, sharing links/comments, and a pretty good UI. This has all those things. I usually read HN elsewhere (rss) but I wanted all the other features in an app so I didn't have to hop into a browser. This lets me do that now.
Just keep the Holo design This is awesome. Just keep this better Holo theme as is. We don't want material design.
Great app, highly recommended!
Small and efficient It works fast, without unnecessary frills, doesn't lag. My only complaint ever is that when I return to list of posts it loses my position, otherwise it would be a strong 5 ?
Great HN client, only broke once on me and developer replied within a few hours. Use it every day.
Usually great Comments are broken right now.
But comments all showing as deleted Bug first noticed 24 August 2016
Broken. After logging in you can't reply to comments. Sometimes fails to load comments or links.
