Do you plan to create native app ?

@carlos_branco Maybe if the traction is big enough. Currently 2/3 are desktop users. My next step will be to make it work better as web app (caching the news list for example) so you can use it in that way. A native app is a lot of work, that I am at the moment not willing to invest in this free to use project :)

Very slick design. I'm going to set this as my homepage! P.S. A feature to remove read stories by swiping right would be awesome!

@bhatnagar_san Thanks for that compliment :D I would remove them automatically, for read ones (so if you click on one, it would be removed). Would be even better, wouldn't it?

@eu_frey yes that sounds even better! Swiping can be helpful if there is some news story that I just don't to read (too off topic for me). Can we have both :)

@bhatnagar_san Okay it is kinda implemented :D Currently the visited entries are faded out. I will wait for more feedback if we should remove them completly. Do you like it? As I have only native javascript without a library in there, it is hard to do the swipe thing, so it will maybe become a button or so.

@eu_frey they're not fading out on my mobile (chrome android). I think jQuery can be good for making the swipe though a button is just as good. The site is very slick and now I understand the reason, you're not using heavy frameworks!

Hackero.co now also has the option to switch between the top posts and the most recent ones! Still without a biased algorithm! All your hacker news sources are equal!
