Nice widget. It would be nice if you could point us to a photocast directory so we could try your widget out. I don't know anyone who photocasts and I can't find any photocast directories out there. Some podcast directories feature photocasts, but there seems to be a problem with feedburner and other rss feeds being readable by your widget. Perhaps I'm asking the widget to do something it wasn't designed to do?

Your downloads page is password protected. Can't find your example rss feed. My favorite photocast so far is You can find truckloads of photocasts by searching Google and showing all duplicates:

Would it be possible to load the large version of the photo into Preview or Safari if I clicked on the image in DashCast? Might be a nice feature.
