Hacky News (WP8.1) is a new application for the social news site Hacker News. If you read Hacker News, then you know how frustrating the website can be to use on mobile devices, and Hacky News changes that: it provides a fast and easy-to-use way to view stories from the front page and sections like Show HN, and features beautiful color-coded comment threads along with an integrated browser.
Currently, the app has 38 ratings in the Windows Phone Store worldwide, with 36 of them 5 star. See what the users have to say:
- Best Hacker News app on the store bar none. This was an instant pin to my home screen.
- Beautiful, fast and fluid. Great app!

Login support for voting and writing comments is planned and will be added once those features become available in the official Hacker News API.
