Feature request: display RSS post author in android app

#1

Many blogs have multiple authors, but the NewsBlur android app does not display post authors when displaying the article. It would be nice to have a byline on posts when reading them so I know who wrote what. (Specifically, I don’t see post authors for http://www.esquire.com/rss/news-politics.xml)
