App Store Description

The only way to view Hacker News on the Apple Watch.

Using the same tech developed for Redeye and Cufflink Browser, Pivit shows you top HN posts and lets you view comments and read entire articles right on your Watch.

Pivit takes a different approach to HN, showing comments first. I built it the way I read HN, as the value to me is in the community. And I often check the comments briefly first to see if an article is actually worth reading, because it filters out the inflammatory or link bait posts. My time is valuable.

That may sound odd, but we're already reading posts on HN that are voted up, so things are already vetted. Why not read into that a bit, and check the comments first?

Let me know what you think.

Using background refresh, posts will always be up to date when you open the app--no need to refresh, it's already ready to read. This adapts to your reading patterns--read HN a lot? It'll refresh more often.

Supports Dynamic Type for great fonts at all sizes. Uses the latest WebKit APIS to ensure fast loading of sites.
