An easier way to read Hacker News (http://news.ycombinator.com). Read the posts and comments reformatted for your phone. Read later with Instapaper. Search HN. This app is not affiliated with Y Combinator. Enjoy!

Note: In March 2013 I redesigned how the app works internally to fix the problems mentioned in user comments around that time. Thanks to all who offered their help. - Corey Trager

    Galaxy SIII, I can click through to the link but cannot see the comments either, which is half the reason to be on Hacker News

    When i click on view comments it always says there are no comments, even though checking the site shows that there are many comments

    It fails to display the comments; all I ever get is "No comments?".
