Hacker News App is a beautiful, minimalist reading experience for Y Combinator's popular Hacker News website. The elegant UI gives you a fully native experience to read the latest news and discussion in the startup community.

• Browse stories on the Front Page, Ask HN, New, Best, and HN Classic sections.

• Read articles directly within the app -- and continue reading while your next choice loads seamlessly in the background.

• Browse user comments and discussion in a beautiful, native UI with full metadata, with no extra taps to see the full thread. (iPad users see full nesting, while iPhone users see flattened comment threads to maximize use of screen space.)

• Follow links from the article or the comments thread easily, with a single tap.

Hacker News App is the fastest and cleanest HN client. Try it today!

What's new in version 1.6.1
- This is now a universal app!
- That means it will work on both your iPhone and iPad.
- Really, it's a big deal. I feel like it deserves more than 1 bullet point.

Anyway, we added other things too:

- Made the portrait UX much more usable on iPad.

- Changed the app name for like the 18th time.

- Minor bug fixes.
