TechCrunch is live

Ever since me, Eric & David came home from 24hbc our account over at Lighthouse has been filling up with tickets on things that needed to be addressed. We sorted most of them (48 issues) under the milestone TechCrunch aka. v1.0 which we deployed live just a few minutes ago. As well as scaling and stability under the hood we have made quite a few changes to the UI and also added some features. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Comments on podcasts (with notifications)
  • Share your podcasts to Twitter, Bloggy, & Facebook
  • Complete your profile with an avatar, description and more
  • Twingly widget integration
  • Player redesign and overall UI changes
  • Pagination of podcasts
We are very excited about these new features and changes so we hope you'll like it! And of course, if you want to listen to this post, go here or just click play on new widget below!
