I created this product when I saw people on twitter linking to Apple Podcasts to promote their new content. As a Pocket Casts user, this frustrated me, because I would always have to find their podcast on my own. The podcasts who do link to a page with multiple platforms available are rarely up to standard design-wise, and so I wanted we.fo to be a simple, beautiful landing page that both the hosts and their listeners would enjoy using whenever they need to get to a podcast fast.

Very similar to https://plnk.to that my friend started a few months ago. Good luck!

@kirillzubovsky you're right. This is nearly identical, unfortunately.

wow, looks like a blatant ripoff of https://plinkhq.com by @scottmathson. not a competitor, a blatant copycat. will the maker @luxioindie provide a comment about this?

@scottmathson @ryanckulp For sure, this started as a programming project just to practice my react skills, but I feel like I ended up making something better than the alternatives that were available, and plink is not in any way the only other project like this, there have been many. I don't believe I am infringing on anything, and I genuinely think I have added and improved on any current offerings.
@luxioindie you can honestly say there is no infringement on https://plinkhq.com here? The copy, design, layout, everything is nearly identical. It's 100% obvious, in simply visiting plinkhq.com and comparing to we.fo Beyond the marketing site, product-side landing page URL schemes/parameters, and other core functionality are obviously copied. Again, friendly competition is great (and encouraged), but infringement is not. Focus on creating your own unique, original take on a smart linking service. cc @ryanckulp

@ryanckulp @scottmathson Gotchu, will get it changed up once you change from song.link's url scheme.
Looks great! Any chance you could post an example of a we.fo link for an actual podcast?

@ruigomeseu For sure, https://we.fo/862714883 will direct mobile users to their native apps while https://we.fo/862714883?to=page wil show the landing page on all platforms :)

@ruigomeseu @luxioindie Missing a link to Anchor.fm, where you can also create a free landing page 😉

I'm all for competition Christian but your marketing website is just *too similar* to @scottmathson 's Plink. There are many directions you could have gone here but tagging these "smart" podcast links and then arranging the content below that 95% similar to Plink? You can build products man, don't play in the space with others that can't and take shortcuts. You have the opportunity to make this right pretty easily and continue to build rad things. Your call.
