Looks a clean and de-cluttered app for Hacker News. It would be great to upvote on an iOS app for HN. I've yet to find one.

@paul_s_kemp Thanks Paul! Really appreciate it :) Btw, this could be one of our next plans but shhh haha, you can support our future development by buying our pro plan (go to Settings > Boreal Store)

Hey guys! Thanks for posting Boreal on PH. We are two high school entrpreneurs, both design lovers and also Hacker News users. I have been using Hacker News for a year and as you may know, Hacker News isn’t very mobile friendly and that is the reason why Nestor (the designer) and me (Juan, the developer) get together to build a product that changes this, and give to Hacker News users the opportunity to fill a full reading and interaction experience with the platform and their users. You can find our complete launch post here (with all our features): https://medium.com/@boreal/intro... Thanks for all! -The Boreal Team

Using Boreal for a couple of days now. TweetShot feature (share text as an image) is great. Upvote range filter is great. Overall design has some limitations but definitely the best if compared to other HN reading apps.

@kertyschoo Thanks for your kindly words man! Those comments are the best fuel for us to continue improving Boreal :) Btw, stay tuned for the next update (v.1.1.) coming in a few days with big improvements like quick access to comments and upvotes from the main feed and a bunch more features you have requested. Don´t forget, Boreal was created by users for users.

Really well designed app! No doubt this is the superior HN app. Especially like the TweetShot feature.

@zacherynielson Thanks Zac! We worked hard redefining the actual mobile experience for HackerNews, improving it and adding cool features we aim to use, Boreal is the result. Btw, a big update is coming in a few days, stay tuned!
