Note: I "cross-posted" this from the Moon milestone since it's relevant to Meta IH

Moon Beta 2 is out πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€β—

Here's a bunch of new stuff you can do with Moon:

User Profiles
β€’ Tap any username (in a post, comment or @tag) to see their profile.
β€’ Profiles show their photo, follower counts, points, bio, comments, posts, products and links to email, tweet or follow them on IH.
β€’ Tap a comment or post in a user's profile to jump to it in the forum.

Better Navigation
β€’ Tap the filter button (top left) to filter the forum by top, new, milestones or any of the 38 IH groups.
β€’ Tap the group name in a post to jump to that feed.
β€’ Tap any URL (in a post, comment or bio) to open it in Safari.

Fall Back to the Web App
β€’ For features not yet in Moon (posting, commenting, voting, etc) tap to jump straight to that page in the IH web app.

Bug Fixes
β€’ Accurate vote counts
β€’ Deleted comments are hidden
β€’ No disabled buttons

These were all requested by beta testers like you.
So thanks for the feedback! And thanks to @csallen for building a great forum, podcast and community.

Feedback is appreciated, as always!
Find me here on IH or Twitter @levidxyz or email (levi at

Happy hacking!

P.S. I hope its ok with Channing, Courtland and Rosie if I use your profiles as examples 🀞
