A HN app with a "share to pocket" (configurable for other share targets of course) one-tap link on articles would be my new main app over night.
1) The article list scrolling position is reset.
2) On my Nexus 7, going from landscape to portrait while viewing comments closes the comments.
What exactly am I giving them access to when I allow it?
Read phone status and identity
Full network access
I can understand the latter, in particular if in android you can't specify exactly what hosts you need to access but the former I can't understand, or better, I can't stand.
I do not want to give every app my identity, not for ads, not for money.
I only have one small piece of input: A night-mode (white on black) for the main menu and comments would be an excellent addition.
Smoother scrolling of comments than in most of the Hacker News readers for Android that I've tried.
I actually wonder why scrolling is so bad in most of the Android applications? Is it because of the misuse of the ListView or what?
Could perhaps show some indication when changing between front page, ask, etc. Currently selecting another view does nothing until the results are loaded and then the page changes instantly underneath.
Crashed after a few minutes of use when pressing the key for registration (I submitted the crash report).
Seems like a good start, the ads are quite irritating though :).
I'm working on adding that indicator, as well as logging in/replying.
I wasn't sure if I should even use ads, but I could take them out. And thanks for the crash report!
I am currently using this one : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.glebpopov.... but yours is good enough to consider a switch :)
Regardless, really an excellent job overall with it.
Unless something stops working, you'll have a purchase from me pretty soon! Good job!
Managed to make it crash though sent a report through to help you debug it.
Good work though, well done :)
One question :
How web scraping is done ?
Sadly I am still on 2.2 :(
