Great app with great defaults

Only thing I would like to see is being able to make posts and upvote comments.

I did turn off the open links in reader view since I can use the amazing article summary tool when I want a glimpse and open the full link when I want to see it all but I understand wanting to avoid possible adds etc

This is my go to reader for hacker news. There are only two changes I’d love to see.

1) allow navigation of articles from the bottom for one handed use. Eg. going back should be on the bottom for big phones
2) have some sort of delay before launching external links, because scrolling is especially tedious when comments have lots of links

Other than that it’s 100!
