My favorite way to browse HN by far.
One kind of annoying thing: tapping on a link inside of a comment will immediately open the link in a different view, even if I’m just trying to scroll past it and accidentally tap on it. I think it should probably open the link only if you tap and release on the tap target, not just tap. Forgive me if I’m explaining it strangely.
Exactly what I was looking for
I don’t write a review often but when I do it’s because I either really like something or I really don’t like it. In this case, this app is what I needed: simple, easy to use, and free/no ads. You should get it now if you’re on the fence.
Love the app
Can you please add some sort of a flag or change the color of the articles that I already opened? Thx
