Austin, Texas – Today, Hacker News Paper is announcing its debut in the iOS App Store. Hacker News Paper is the best way to read Hacker News on an iPad. Because of its custom API and native code base, Hacker News Paper (HNP) gets you to the stories you are interested in quicker than any other iPad app.
Hacker News Paper allows you to find the content that interests you quicker than any other app. It shows each article in a small blurb with its newspaper-like interface. This allows you to quickly see Hacker New’s top stories with the ease and familiarity of a newspaper.
HNP’s custom api is its secret to becoming the most usable Hacker News iPad app. While many apps can show you the front page and link you to the articles, HNP’s custom API actually grabs the article’s text. This allows you to read the text in a native format designed specifically for the iPad. Because of its native text rendering, Hacker News Paper is the quickest way to read the articles on the front page of Hacker News.
