Great start

Very clean design of one of my most frequently visited news sites.

All it's missing is the ability to log in so you can post threads & comments as well as upvote threads & comments.

Please add a way to pay

Hacker News apps get abandoned all the time. This is the best HN client I’ve ever used, and it would be a shame to be abandoned. Please include an in app purchase of some sort. $9.99 one time payment to unlock dark mode, viewing commentor profiles, upvoting (if possible through API), and bookmarks.

Would give it 5 stars for dark mode!

That’s literally the only thing holding this back. Also adjustable text size would be nice but not required.

Developer Response ,

Dark mode is now available!
