Simple and friendly app - with a weird “feature”

Great, easy to use, no-nonsense app.
Overall it’s great.

But... there’s this nice time saving feature. If you spend too much time on the app (15-30 minutes) it will decide to crash. I’m sure this is just a time saving feature so you don’t scroll endlessly /s.

Clean, simple and straightforward, minor issues

Like the description says, a simple reader for HN.

Search doesn’t appear to work well, or maybe at all. And it can get into search mode permanently with no way to return to the reader mode without uninstalling

Clean and fast

Since the ycombinator site is frustrating to read comments on I decided to try this app.

Super fast, very clean and gets the job done. Not sure about the posting functionality as I am a lurker.

I only wish it was 3D Touch ready for previewing links. Still a wonderful app none the less.
