Known Bugs
Unfortunately, due to some bugs in the Furk.net APIs the functions for creating new accounts and editing the parameters of feed subscriptions DON'T work currently.
I have already reported these bugs to Furk.net APIs maintainers so as soon as they fix them these functions should return to work.


ToDo
In the next versions I plan to add the following features:
  • Showing the remaining bandwidth (for both free and premium account)
  • Adding the visualization of the exclusive info of premium accounts (as soon as I get one...)
  • Possibility to view video files directly in VLC
  • Showing thumbnail images of video files
