Because you don't have enough things to do =)
A mobile site or apps for the iPhone/Android would be awesome.
Very pleased to announce that I have final gotten around to build a mobile frontend for Good News. Thanks to pandemic lockdown creativity. It is not yet packaged into native iOS/Android apps but you can reach it by simply pointing your mobile browser to http://goodnews.click – Also feel free to add it to your phone’s Home screen as a PWA shortcut via Chrome (Android) and Safari (iOS).

Yes please an iPhone app! That is the first thing I looked for after installing the Chrome extension. I currently use Flipboard, which is a beautiful app, but lacks the substance of Good Noows.
I would love support for Meego/Maemo/Symbian.
But I guess that not gonna happen.
A shame this has not been done yet. It is definitely the feature I miss the very most from goodnoows. In fact I would say it is the only serious drawback that makes me consider using something different.

I don't agree with skipping the native app. People don't like webapps mostly, me too. I think they are sluggish.
An iphone app would be great.

A well done html (maybe 5) version would do the job just as well. Skip the native app. That way you can deploy faster, support more devices and therefore make more people happier quicklier.
This would be soooo great! I would love to be able to use Good Noows on my phone. Currently it does not work at all though.
I think the best way to do this would be to 'just' make a mobile friendly version of the site. One that is more suited for slow devices with small screens.
I am somewhat biased here because I have an old symbian phone, and no one makes native apps for that. But that is precisely why it is the best solution: you will help anyone who has a device with a browser and not just iPhone/Android users.
