Customer Reviews of the Minihack App

Worth the money but there are a few changes that would make it a 5* App

After collapsing comment threads, if you leave the comments and then come back the collapsing isn’t persistent. AKA you have to recollapse each comment to get to where you were before. I absolutely love the swipe to collapse though and I think it’s a great feature. Another issue i have is that if you check your past comment and click on the comment it takes you to the thread but not the comment chain, making it really difficult to reply to people that have replied to you. If you click on someone that has responded to you, it only gives you the option to go to their profile. It does not link to their comment. The last issue that I think is the dealbreaker is that although there is a place to view your saved posts, there is no way in the app to actually save posts. I would give the app 3*s but I really love the app so i’m going to keep it at 4*. Keep up the good work homie.

Good, but could be improved

I tried to send feedback from the app, but pressing the Send Feedback button didn’t do anything so I’m writing on here. I didn’t like the ‘swipe to collapse’ initially, but I’ve gotten used to it and I think that it works well. One thing that I wish we could do is highlight text in comments so that we can use the builtin ‘lookup word’ iPhone feature. If you don’t know what I mean: highlight a word, then the black bar with copy, paste, etc pops up, press right arrow if necessary and click Look Up. My vocabulary isn’t that great and there are many HN comments that use words I don’t know, it would be very useful and instructive if we could look these up. Thanks

Works great

Have tried other clients and for the price this one works super well. Especially love the font customization options. My only wish is for the comments to have a bit more spacing to delineate each one from others. Right now it feels a bit squished which makes it a little less readable compared to the website.

Stop asking me to rate

Header link not click able again, apparently. Also it seems impossible to respond to some topics. Can't quite narrow that one down though, only thing that I can determine is that it might be related to the size of the post.

Love it. But collapsing comments. 😦

But can never remember which way to swipe to collapse a comment thread. Which is my favorite feature!

Best iPhone client I have tried

Now that it is updated for iPhone X, it is pretty much perfect!

Best app if you want to read about tech

OTOH the icons could be ... clearer? Gear for actions usually means settings. Triangle (as shown in swipe UI) usually means warning vs. upvote. Etc.

great app but needs ability to submit new articles
