The Hacker News app is an application that allows users to browse the top current stories from the popular technology news aggregator Hacker News (http://news.ycombinator.com). It allows the user to view the top stories along with the comment threads for each article. The application provides the user the ability to switch between the latest top trending articles, the newest articles submitted and specific Ask HN stories. One key feature of the application is that it provides the user the ability to save articles for offline viewing. This will allow the user to select and store articles that will be available even if there is no internet connection. This is perfect for those who like to read while travelling and have limited or no network connection.
