I'm creating this app as a learning exercise for me, and to 'scratch my own itch' so to speak - to have a nice simple way to read HN from my iphone while pushing my daughter on the swing: Available in the app store
I also intended from the start open-sourcing this so that people can have a look and learn with a nontrivial demo app. The more people that know obj-c/UIKit, the merrier! https://github.com/chrishulbert/HackerNewsReader
