Best I’ve found

This hacker news app has most of the features I care about. Open graph previews, performance, and a very readable, dense, thread view. It’s also important to me that I can see the top comments before tapping the article. The only things on my wishlist are some sort of ad-free solution and better handling of screen orientation. This app locks to portrait all the time which is usually what I want. Directly supporting landscape videos would be ideal though. For that I need to switch to safari. You can do this with one tap but it would be ideal not to have to leave the app.

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.

Best Hacker News app for iOS

Really impressed how good this is, especially for an initial release. Hopefully it will one day support commenting/voting!
