Hacker News Client

Marcin Kmiec

[ This app is no longer available for download ]

This is probably the first Hacker News client on AppStore that uses the newly introduced official Firebase HN API. One of the cool features of the new API are updates pushed in real time. There’s no need to keep refreshing the client, as the number of points and the number of comments for each story are updated automatically. If you wish to reload the stories completely, simply pull to refresh.

With its clean layout, you will definitely love the flat user interface. What's more, you can always adjust the comments' font size by going to iOS's Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Larger Text and dragging the slider.

Hacker News Client is completely open source. Feel free to contribute.

Our verdict: Good
  • + Hacker News Client is a highly rated app (5-star).
  • + The app is free.
