Plink podcast smart links now supports the Big 4 podcast apps - Apple and Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher. 🎉Shows that are available on all platforms that Plink supports will now display app links to 10 different podcast apps on their Show Pages.
Adding support for Stitcher proved to be quite difficult. Without going too deep into the nitty-gritty, the fact that Stitcher doesn't have an API to source data from forced me to restart at the very beginning (whereas iTunes and Spotify's APIs give a bit of a head start). After a lot of coding, conversations with Stitcher's CEO, and much more this release feels monumental! Phew 😅
Podnews caught wind of this new release and shouted Plink out once again in their daily newsletter and podcast episode:
"Plink, a podcast linking service, has now added Stitcher to its list. (We link to an example of Lore https://plnk.to/lore?to=page). Stitcher is in all paid pages, and will be rolled out shortly to free pages."
