New version of Podfriend out. Now with individual & messaged boosts!

Out on the web. Will try to release an Android and iOS version tonight too, but time is running out.

Leaving for Poland tomorrow and then will most likely be "away" for 3 weeks (I'll still be here on, but not have access to my development machine 😱 )

Hmm maybe I should have named it oh well.

@dave Found my first duplicate while watching . Found the first 2 via the pings (this one matches itunes)

Searching for the name revealed 1 more from

Their site links to the feed which isn't in the index. The https:// version isn't either.

I plan to query the index API to get the podcast name and artwork
