This is a current screenshot of my soon to be opensourced Hacker News reader for Android, with a focus on reliability and beautiful design. Other HN readers rely on web APIs for parsing and often fail to display anything, so I decided to write a client which does not fail me.
The refresh icon rotates when the feed is loading, and loading can be cancelled by tapping it. It also shows a success sign when loading is done.
I have decided against a texture on the list area because this would sacrifice fluidity of scrolling (cacheColorHint).
More screenshots and beta version in Play Store to come soon. When I have cleaned up the mess I will also put the code up on Github (https://github.com/manmal).

clean debut, but i'd try to make the refresh button a bit more visible (some drop/inner shadow etc.) ;)
Thanks for the suggestion.. I intended to do so, but this icon spins around its center when the view is loading, and with any shadow applied it tumbles around like an egg on your breakfast plate :)
nice design and interesting concept great work @Manuel Maly ! Wishing you all the best and welcome to the family :)
OH! HN on Android! Cool!
