Nice app! Couple suggestions... 1. tapping on the article takes you to the HN comment thread. I prefer to read the actual linked article before commenting, so maybe that would be preferred? A comment count bubble to link to the comment thread would work, leaving the tap on the article to take you to the actual submitted article. 2. Not being able to swipe to go back is something I instantly missed having. The tap at the top left to go back to the big list is a long way up there on a 6S or 6S+ and swipe to go back a page is a nice option. Otherwise, looks great! Nice, clean interface and very fast.

@jameskoole Yes! In fact, these are the only two things I don't like about this app. It's great otherwise.

The upvotes look like those on Product Hunt (so of course I love it 😉)

@katesegrin thanks Kate. TBH the upvote button is inspired from the earlier Product Hunt iOS app. 😝

Nice app. Some feeedback: I think it needs a bit more padding on the comments, and collapsing comments is essential. I really like how Narwhal ( does their comment collapsing. Also needs the back swipe functionality, as someone else here has mentioned.

@markbao Thanks for the feedbacks Mark. I too think that padding need a bit more adjusment on it. Working on the swipe back functionality now. 👍

Very clean interface. Nicely done. As others have mentioned "Swipe" to go back is a big missing feature. Another feature request would be swipe on the comment to collapse the comment thread.
