Doesn't work with the latest version of the site Starting a month or two ago, it thinks every story has no comments, and the story date is confusingly put in the story score field. So the app isn't worth using until its scraping code is updated for the latest version of the site. At least when it worked, it had good UI for browsing stories and comments, such as supporting collapsible threads. And viewing stories with it was fine.
Crashes, lists same article many times I've been using this for 6 months+ In the last 2 months, it's started crashing daily. It also lists the same article multiple times when scrolling down. I accepted this until today, when I tried a different hn app and so far it's faster, more stable and more consistent.
THERE'S A BUG IN THIS In the app when first 30 top articles are scrolled through, the next 30 articles ( article number 30-60) from the ycombinator website get loaded into the app.Now when i want to scroll further and want articles 60-90 to load , articles 30-60 REPEAT AGAIN. AFTER THIS REPETITION, article number 60-90 get loaded. This repeats again in the next load. i.e. same page is loaded TWICE in the app every-time. Fix this bug. Also the color scheme orange never shows.
meh, but more features than the rest can't login (even with the latest version that reports fixing it), stories are repeated, and app crashes more than any other app used. it would be nice to be able to export the bookmarked stories.
