A couple of months ago I mentioned a nice news reader app created in swift for the hacker news called SwiftHN.
Here’s a complete open source news reader app created entirely in Swift for The Oakland Post from Andrew Clissold.
The app provides an extensive feature set listing stories with image thumbnails, and post times, a nice clean reading experience, and a photo browser. The example utilizes a number of open source projects including the RSS feed parser MWFeedParser, and the asynchronous image downloading library SDWebImage.
Earlier this year I mentioned a component for implementing Tinder style swipe-to-choose cards called MDCSwipeToChoose.
Here’s a nice tutorial that goes step-by-step through the process of creating cards with cool Tinder style dragging animations from Nimrod Gutman.

- Setting up a draggable image view
- Modifying the rotation and scale while the image is being dragged to match the effect seen in the Tinder app
- Adding overlay images as the image is dragged
- Performing the selected action

Some of the design patterns included are:

I’ve posted about a few open source hacker news clients listed on the open source apps list.
Here’s an example hacker news client built-in Swift called SwiftHN released by Thomas Ricouard.
While more features are on the way, the client allows you to read the news, view articles, view comments, and send articles to the Safari reading list. The client uses a library called HackerSwifter providing a Swift based parser for creating your onw Hacker News client.
