Such a great app for teachers!
by Mr. Walter's Epic Adventure on 2019/09/13 01:16
I absolutely love this app! It has changed the way I communicate with pets. No longer do I send newsletters home that parents don’t end up reading and just throw away. Instead I have students cohosts each week a podcast covering all the information we learned during the week. They also let parents know of upcoming important dates. I have created a template that kids work on during the week at home with their families. Then they bring it to me to look over and practice reading their lines. On Friday the kids are able to use the app easily and create the podcast. Once they are finished I send it out to the parents. The parents absolutely love seeing their kids get to take center stage!

We talked about doing a podcast for three years. Discovering Anchor took all the anxiety and work out of the experience and has made podcasting fun!
Nice home chore / cfb talk multitasking

Does not save info
by Zach were rev on 2019/09/06 00:23
Deleted the app and logged back in (updated software on iPad) and it let me login but seems to not have any of my information saved. No previous episodes or pics or anything. Would not recommend for podcast distribution.
Thank you!

by Dfjdjd on 2019/09/04 01:39
Used to be good then ran into a lot of issues. No add friend feature from computer anymore; Phone to phone: friend got dropped from podcast after 40th minute, and auto save feature ended up not saving 2 of the podcast created.

Can’t use record with friends
by Dimitrius C7 on 2019/09/01 20:38
Just got the app and was excited to want to use it seeing as though me and my co-host live in different cities and the app has a record with friends feature. But.... it doesn’t work at all. It keeps saying that there’s no connection when I’m on WiFi smh tragic
Broken

Downloaded this app so I could record with a friend but the “add friend” feature simply does not work, i keep getting a message about not being able to connect.
Connect with friends feature is broken

I would give this app 5stars but suddenly I am not able to invite others to podcast with me. I keep getting a “we are having trouble connecting” every other app works ok so it is not my wireless connection. I put in a support ticket and it has been 4 days with no response. I loved the app until then. Also anchor has not published any of my podcasts to ITunes.
Anchor la mejor plataforma de creación
by Nebulosa79* on 2019/08/30 07:56
Sin lugar a dudas que con Anchor crear un podcast es magnífico, simple rápido y con un poder para distribuir tu podcast en todas las plataformas de audio disponibles es fenomenal y más ahora que está unida a Spotify. Es genial!

Hi Tan Boy here. I’m from a podcast called The Late Summer Nighters and if it wasn’t for Anchor I wouldn’t have never done a podcast where I can perfectly Edit and easily do a podcast without paying or doing complicating things. Me and my group of out cast friends love using this and we always do a podcast once and week and we appreciate the team of Anchor for making an awesome podcast platform to use! If you ever wanna do a podcast use this app I guarantee it will be worth it!!

NEEDS A MUTE BUTTON!
by A. Chadwick on 2019/08/24 21:47
Anchor is a really amazing tool, but it REALLY needs a mute button so my conversations don’t include my coughs and throat-clearings! This seems like a no-brainer to me. Everyone is used to having a mute button during their phone calls. It’s even more important for Anchor! PLEASE ADD ASAP! Thank you.

Editing on app isn't what you think..
by bb1.kehn on 2019/08/10 18:49
I love this a lot from recording and laying out the segments. The UI is friendly and makes everything easy to record plus the part where people can leave me voicemails, I want to love it more, but at the point I start editing 20 to 30 min segments on the app itself because I want to work on my podcast all in one app. My issue here is that when I edit where I cut and trim out parts, I feel that it over cuts some parts of the recording. I was mostly removing a lot of "uhhs and umms", also some pauses where we were just taking a breather and the audio was silent. Once I've hit saved, it does take some time to process, once it's done...I would listen and not only just my cuts were made... additional cut offs happen into my conversations. So, when I've listened to hear out my cuts were made, either some of my sentences were cut and placed to somewhere else. Idk what's going on

Only Anchor Got Me Started

If it were not for Anchor, I would not have started my podcast. It is very easy to get going. Within 24 hours I started, recorded, and published my first episode.
Awesome

Great app. I got started right away it had been a relatively smooth transition and consistency! I love everything about it and am having fun! I even like the podcasts they do about how to start one and it helped me find my mic!
This app just might change my life!!

I don’t normally write reviews, but this app deserves one. It’s very user friendly for first time podcast users. Anchor also distributes your podcast to all platforms to include Apple podcast. Great app!!
Update: 4 Stars
by arandomguy yt on 2019/08/07 22:23
Thanks for the recognition! I would like to make a couple more suggestions. My first is kind of weird, but I would like to see an end of episode to-do list after I finish recording an episode. The second thing I would like to see changed is the estimated listeners statistic. Right now, it tracks your “current” listeners by seeing how many plays all your episodes get within 30 days of recording. I would like to see this changed to the average listeners of your last 5 or 10 episodes. I typically get around 30 listens per episode, but my earlier episodes are less listened to and drag that statistic down, so it’s not too accurate. Thanks for your time! QuestingNight- Crow Crew Podcast
Super easy
by funkylucky on 2019/08/07 17:21
Super easy to make podcasts on. My iPhone’s built in camera is good enough to just record it all on that. You can export audio from Voice Memo’s, email, as well as import your own personal audio tracks and export audio recorded in app to out of app. Sounds effects arrangement makes it really easy and I like the colorful simple layout of the app. Sometimes I can’t tell what button I have to push to do the thing I want, but navigating around aimlessly helps me get there
Absolutely Amazing!!!
by ChrisG26 on 2019/08/06 20:37
I absolutely love using Anchor! I have two podcasts, Kid Commentaries and The Cinema Soundtrack Podcast. My brother does WhoCast and I have a friend who runs Monday Minutes- A Kid’s Take. We all love Anchor very much. My only problem is that you can only have one podcast per account, and I’m constantly switching between the two. All in all, it’s totally worth it though. The app is very easy to use and I love it very much.
Anchor is awesome!

by Cherry Kivumbi on 2019/04/02 01:06
I love the app and have been using it as the main platform for my podcast since 2018. The customer service support staff is amazing and gets back to you in a timely manner! Not only this but there's option for monitization and also sponsors! And it's user friendly and easy to use! Within less than a year anchor has been able to have my podcast on 14 DIFFERENT platforms, without me having to lift a finger! Would highly recommend to anyone curious about the podcast game and want an easier interface! From an expert to a beginner there's room on the app for everyone! And the best part....all these features are FREE!! Probably the best podcasting platform I have looked into and it's soaring through the competition! I recommend to all my friends and it's easy for them to find my podcast as well! But dont take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
Great app but..
by DiegoGuz05 on 2018/04/21 02:31
This is a great app to get started on creating podcast. My friend and I just got approved for Apple podcasts and pocket cast in a matter of days! The only thing keeping me from giving it a full five star review are the two following problems. The first one, the app needs to include a way to trim unnecessary audio recordings. There has been plenty of times where we are 15-20 mins recording and we get distracted by something and end up recording 2-3 mins off topic and guess what? We have to record again since we can’t trim the audio recording! That is very frustrating. The second problem, whatever the app does it kills my phone’s battery! No joke! Just today we recorded a 11 min episode and my phone went from 86% to 58% that was unbelievable. And before you say it must’ve been something else..no I have background data restricted on all apps with exception of Anchor, Mail, Clash Royale, and Play music. When I launch this app I close out of everything and only laugh this app and I connect to WiFi. Once those two problems are taken care of I will gladly change my ratings!
Is it really this bad?
by Paulliuww on 2018/05/09 17:30
I’m a bit dumbfounded. You have to hold down on the record button to record, and as soon as you let go with your thumb, it stops recording and go straight to a published now page. It does not allow you to add on to that recording. Another way you can record is by putting the phone up to your ear. Once again when you pull the phone down it starts recording starts trying to publish that podcast. Let’s hope you don’t have to scratch your nose or something. This app sounds so compelling with its meet up with other people with similar interest in the group or joint podcast, but these fundamental basic user issues are beyond my ability to comprehend. I’m sure it’s there somewhere, but I couldn’t even find a delete button to delete my first random scratch audio take. Is there any other app in the world where you have to physically be touching the record button on the screen for it to record? Am I missing something? With the rating of over four stars I’m just really confused.
Anchors Away
by Blake P Smith on 2019/02/17 03:20
So I wanted to say a little something about the application for the Anchor broadcast and so far I’m finding this to be very helpful and easy to use. I was always worried about doing a podcast because I thought I was going to have to go buy expensive microphones and headphones and apps for my computer and set all that stuff up with the speakers and wires and all that stuff but… I’m finding with Anchor I don’t have to do all that I can just do it right through my smart phone. And that makes it very attractive since just about everybody has a smart phone that they can download the app to and use this application so easily. So if you been looking for a while or thinking about doing a podcast I highly recommend using Anchor. You can be up and running literally in five minutes. So don’t wait do it today.
Love the idea (and the feedback from my experience using this app)
by Miles Donalds on 2018/06/22 19:57
I’ve been using this app for almost a week now and I’m delighted for the effort developers put in with updates and improvements. So far, I have tried mostly co-host recordings of the app and there are few concerns; For some reason, When i’m connected via 4G network (using iphone 6). I find a co-host, we connect (in the coundown phase) but then it always ends up failing and connections is gone (sometimes I can’t hear, other times it quits itself) so I weren’t able to speak co-host a single time (probably out of 15 attempts) with cellular network. Whereas it happened only 1-2 times with wi-fi networks. Also, every notification is useless when it says that someone’s ready to speak (and I get ton of it each day). everytime I click on that, I go to endless “looking for” screen which i’m already spending too much time anyways when manually “looking for it” myself. Also sometimes it is quite difficult to find a persons profile to whom I’ve had a co-host session with. that happens if i miss “a person published it” notification, then when i look into my library it gives only my own recording and I couldn’t find anything clickable about that person . I only see his/her name. again thanks to the people who are working hard to make things easier!! keep up the good work 🙏
Don’t waste your time!!!
by LexoButterfly on 2019/01/31 17:58
I have another podcast that I years that I’ve left the one I’ve had for years. I wanted to try something that had more ways for me to communicate with other people so this seemed to like the perfect app! Used it for the first two days it absolutely loved it until I recorded a 30 minute segment someone called me and it’s basically stopped my segment I try to go in and edit basically re start the recording and somehow it got deleted whenever I went back to check it. I’m not a fan because it does not pause your segments if someone calls you or anything like that so if you’re in the middle of the segment and someone calls you or you get some type of notification or anything it will stop and asked to be published Therefore you’re not able to restart it so it’s a waste of time. You’re just gonna have to basically restart your whole show. That just made me delete the app. I have so many calls coming in a day so I really look for a app that will pause so I can just restart my segment you cannot do this on here I’m so heated I wasted my time....
It was easy...
by Pianomezzo on 2018/02/26 00:13
So the versions before 3.0 were fine in terms of uploading music from your desktop, listening to the latest episodes of your favorites, commenting via text and looking at how many claps each segments. But now I don’t see the latest of my favorites or claps per segment. I also miss reposting music or segments I heard on different stations (or haven’t discovered how to do that in this version). Plus I liked how the music would go ahead and publish on my station. I normally don’t plan an episode or playlist mix for each day. Don’t get me wrong I love how I can reorder the segments and add them to previous episodes or compose a new one out of those. I also like how my favorites are all lined up in the Discover section. Lastly, I like seeing more stats. So please bring back said features or make it less complicated.
Nice!
by SteveMcCune on 2019/04/13 15:24
They asked me to leave a nice review, so here it is! I like these guys. I try not to get too attached to my apps but this is one I am liking. They make it too easy NOT to share audio! But, I confess, I have to be very careful about talking too much. After all, it’s not just about transmitting, it’s also about listening to others. Whether you transmit or receive, and whether you speak or you listen, AnchorFM makes it easy. Monetizing? Isn’t everyone? It looks like it will now be easier to monetize here, too. Stripe appears to be the weapon of choice for monetizing here. I have some sweet and sour thoughts when it comes to monetizing: I’m glad someone will make money, and I’m also thankful that if they make enough money they will still be able to put up with freeloaders like me! Nicely done! Keep it up. Stay the course!
Editing on app isn't what you think..
by bb1.kehn on 2019/08/10 18:49
I love this a lot from recording and laying out the segments. The UI is friendly and makes everything easy to record plus the part where people can leave me voicemails, I want to love it more, but at the point I start editing 20 to 30 min segments on the app itself because I want to work on my podcast all in one app. My issue here is that when I edit where I cut and trim out parts, I feel that it over cuts some parts of the recording. I was mostly removing a lot of "uhhs and umms", also some pauses where we were just taking a breather and the audio was silent. Once I've hit saved, it does take some time to process, once it's done...I would listen and not only just my cuts were made... additional cut offs happen into my conversations. So, when I've listened to hear out my cuts were made, either some of my sentences were cut and placed to somewhere else. Idk what's going on
Great app. Needs an Update.
by COOLIOMANE on 2018/03/24 09:06
This app is great. The downfalls are that it kicks us out & it deletes a draft. There should be a deleted section. That way you can put back audio already deleted. We should be able to add music to recordings because the system doesn’t to allow you to add music after you’ve recorded it. It doesn’t sound clear at times. This app needs to be UPDATED. Also, users can be able to add access to reference in new episodes. Just to be able to find the material. The app does not allow you to have a easy way of accessing a bigger public audio for you to find where your podcast is going and if it’s building. We should be able to have more control on our work & publish it where we want. Also, TRACK IT. Where are these podcasts going???????? PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.
Never been easier to create podcast
by AProc on 2018/05/12 00:13
I have had a podcast now since this feature came out and it was so easy that I tell everyone about it. I have had nearly 10,000 podcast listeners / downloads since launching. Having a podcast opens doors and anchor made that so easy to have a podcast that it almost feels like I cheated compared to all my friends who had to go through so much pain to get their podcast launched. CONS: 1. For a while you had no options to remove the anchor promo at the end of every podcast. I think they have enough users now to give you the option of removing it. 2. For a while they stamped their logo on top of your logo. I think you can opt out of this now as well. 3. It still says “Andy Proctor / Anchor” as the author of the podcast. 4. It no longer pauses when you lift the phone from your ear which is inconvenient when you have to burp or sneeze or pause. You just have to name your segment. Not good for people who are on the fly. It will be nice to get to the point where we can just pay to have all the anchor branding removed because the software is awesome and it makes it super easy and makes it fun to interact with people on anchor as well. This is what I love about it most currently.
Cool idea getting in it's own way
by Zeromont on 2017/10/13 14:30
Such a great idea, small intractable content that's fast to produce and easy to consume. Love the idea. The interface though is just functionally awful. I can never for the life of me find the programs I'm actually subscribed to because the predominant listings are always the apps own productions (or at least the productions they overtly back, like these weird general round-up style programs I have zero interest in). I would love it if the app prioritized the content of the people I actually try to follow, I'm sure as content producers these programs are taking a listenership hit just from this interface alone and that's super frustrating and annoying. Finishing my shows automatically starts a show promoted by the app that I have no interest in whatsoever. This is a disincentive from frequenting the app and also from ever generating my own content. Such an easy fix though. Hope something changes.
The service every podcaster should be using
by A7xfanJDubs17 on 2019/01/08 14:00
Me and my wife have been running our Star Wars podcast (Nerdherder) for 6 months now. Every set of the way Anchor has made the experience easy and beneficial. And it’s all for free. Anchor cares about creativity and don’t believe in charging for it and in fact they go above and beyond to help you. They’ll distribute your podcast to popular apps and platforms, they provide you with sponsors so your episodes can be monetized, and they include a way for listeners to give monthly contributions. It’s all here in one app, for free. If you want to podcast, it’s never been easier. Try Anchor. And if you already podcast through some other service you can move over to Anchor pretty easily. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Anchor is fantastic, but fix playback
by LazarusReturns on 2019/05/01 17:49
I’ve been using Anchor since it’s early release and I have to say I really love it. Recording from my phone while I travel in a zoom iq7 and doing edits once I’m in the hotel room is fantastic. The library edition and the ability to trim audio clips was a needed edition and works for those quick edits. Let’s not forget the ability to call into shows. This feature helps drive content and interaction on many podcasts using Anchor. Fantastic part of the platform. Most of all set up is a breeze and getting the ok through so many different platforms was a breeze. Plus Anchor has ads you get paid for and you record your own! MISSING STAR Some may wonder, “Why the missing Star.” Well there have been some changes that are very troublesome. One is the wya I record and the other is playback. I will say I miss the ability to pause recording when in mid thought or if I need to look something up and don’t want audio noise in the background. Also playback just hangs every time I use it on Anchor. While I know I can download and listen I like being able to call in during an EP if I have something I want to contribute and with playback gaming every single time I use the app, it’s really not something I can do.
Pretty Freaking Awesome
by Bebaleo7 on 2018/05/21 09:54
Really amazing app and Sound quality by just holding the phone to your ear. Super easy to use. As far as having multiple people on one recording, I’m still a little confused. So far the Developers have been amazing at responding ... thanks guys/girls you rock. So is it true you can only record 10 minutes at a time with someone else? I was trying to add people to my solo recoding at it wasn’t working. I had to swipe right to “talk about a topic” and invite a friend as a co-host that way. I thought I read somewhere you could have up to 10 people live? I wouldn’t want that many but it would be cool to have up to 3 or 4 of us for certain topics. Keep up the amazing work and honestly thank you. This is an incredible service for the world.
Amazing for it being Free!
by Sk8terMan9 on 2019/04/02 19:18
I have been using this app for about a month now and it has been excellent. If you are starting out as a Podcaster this is the app for you! It’s simple and very straight forward. If you have been podcasting for a while and know what you are doing, then don’t even try it. This apps focus is getting your episodes out there and managing them. The editor is a side thing that is obviously not invested in or looking into developing much by their team. Which I would say is good because it allows the editing to be done by the user and not the app. As a creator, I always say “if you create something then flipping create it! Don’t half-app it and make someone else do it.” All in all, great for a solid podcast distributer.
WoW........JusT..........WoW!!!!!!!!!!!!!:-)
by LindaV50 on 2018/02/09 22:28
What an amazing, wonderful creative idea. You are all are so awesome for this. For doing this and having a medium like this. I can’t believe that you have created a way for my voice tolive on. No matter what I do I will be able to yell at my kids or tell my husband how much I love or loved him. No matter what. I will live on forever. And for you to offer it free😳. What a wonderful gem you are😍. If you have the honor of reading this, pat your self on the back. Then pat two more people that work beside you. Tell them Great Job. encourage them to pass it on to three other people. And when the compliment or words of affirmation come back to you, you will know how I feel right now. Spread the Love, Spread the Word, Spread the Voices.
So easy to use!
by Rogerzsn on 2019/05/21 03:38
I have a lot on my mind so I thought, well why don’t I start a podcast so I can share my thought process and voice my opinions. I was introduced to this app and it is amazing! Here’s why: The layout is simple to understand. You want to start recording a podcast from your phone, you have the option right in front of you. The app walks you through registration of your podcast to all major podcast stations, helps you add music and trim your audio, and really just does everything from you. I am BRAND NEW to podcasting so I didn’t want to spend time thinking about what I need to learn to get a podcast going and this app simply does almost everything for you. So far, I love it!
Nothing works and support really doesn’t help.. same ongoing issue for 3 weeks.
by Tenderoni76 on 2018/04/29 13:29
Background music doesn’t work properly. You can’t delete old messages so you can’t get knew ones. Recording uploads don’t save correctly. Still no distribution to 4 platforms and it’s been 3 weeks. Support really doesn’t help. New update did not fix issues. Tried several browsers as suggested. Even reinstalled app several times and rebooted my iPhone. Still the same issues.. and support just gives you the run around. Really no help. I thought this app was great too until nothing worked properly and support can’t even fix issues with their own company. Very disappointed.
Great idea - Selfish execution
by ZMPhysique on 2018/06/04 16:08
The fundamental of the app is such a phenomenal idea. One place to record your podcast that covers distribution. I’ll admit I’ve been on the edge of starting a podcast for some time now, and hearing Gary Vee talk about this app is what inspired the download and the start of my podcast. However, and this is a massive however. I can not stand the fact that Anchor feels that they can just brand themselves all over my content. Anchor has no right to play their advertisements over my content on iTunes, or brand themselves on my Facebook posts. The content and education that I’ve spent my life building doesn’t belong to anchor, and if your creating an app as a solution for some gaps in the market space that’s fine, but don’t try to claim that your app the reason why people are able to have a podcast. I’ve just uploaded my last episode through anchor and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone because of this branding issue.
Almost great, but fatal errors
by Smegax on 2018/04/24 01:17
The idea and software are great, plus there seems to be a lot of app support. However there are some major needs to make this app professional. There should be a setting that allows you to start and pause the same recording (it boggles my mind that I have to hold up the phone or keep my finger on the screen the entire time I'm talking and can't put the phone down) and second it has no "editing" tool for any of the clips. So everything has to either be perfect or cut into little pieces for it to be post-produced, makes it mandatory to post unwanted audio. It should at least have the settings that the iPhone record app already has. Additionally, the video making tool is great, but it only does segments and not episodes. And you can't combine segments, making any episode multiple videos (clutter). Also it would be awesome if we could upload our recordings from our iPhone voice memos, that would solve a lot of issues and do for more easy content. And what's up with the middle square on the interface? It's useless. There should be some settings for recording. Finally, I wish there was some generic background music choices like on video editing apps.
Find another app to use
by nonstable on 2018/11/29 21:16
I started on this app spring 2018. Admires the app from day one. But then anchor started “updating”. Wow this app is super unstable. Anchor has an extremely slow support system in place. You can ask for help and literally it will take about 7-9 days to get a response that doesn’t help you. I’ve been in the Facebook group and have asked questions and brought attention to the ridiculously slow support department. Yes anchor kicked me out of the group. Hey you asked for honesty. I recommend NOT using the app. Or just go to Speaker app. Inside the anchor app after you record your show. The app would/will upload it 15-25 times unless you reset the app. If you are going to use this app. I strongly advice you record you entire show. Then upload the show in anchor via desktop. NOT cell phone. If you need help or technical support. Ask people that use the app NOT ANCHOR. Anchor will blow you off literally.
Truly love this app and opportunity it provides
by KingDaddySmurf on 2019/07/11 17:12
This app has given myself and several friends a great opportunity to create and distribute a music podcast that is now being simulcast on radio stations because of the popularity in the community we create this for. Music community has embraced it and we are proud. Would love to be a featured show and get more sponsors, which we mix between ones matched by anchor to us along with ones we sell directly to bands. If this cost money to do or get a bunch of equipment we would not have been able to get this going, possibilities are now showing up we would not have had to better our futures without it.
Very happy
by Loomynarty on 2018/08/11 22:09
I think this is a very ambitious app that’s making podcasting more accessible to pretty much anybody and i love when things are made available to anyone. One thing i wish was in the app is a fast forward feature or at least the ability leave the app and come back to it later with the podcast you were listening to in the same spot. I’ve been listening to a podcast whenever i drive around but after i get out of my car and live my daily life i come back to the app and it’s pretty much reset, i usually just put it in the fastest playback speed and just tap the forward button like 200 times but if i was just able to slide to the spot i was at would be amazing

Easy to Use
by Thedew34 on 2019/07/14 19:19
First, thank you to the developers for a sleek, smooth design, both for the podcast creator as well as the listener. An improvement would be to allow creators to have a musical intro which fades completely for the rest of the show until the speaker is done, and which slowly returns to conclude and complete the episode. This would be amazing. All I have been able to do so far is either have music in the background or have just my voice. Another flaw is that when an episode has individual segments, the segments’ individual titles always revert back to “Part 1”, etc. Besides that, Anchor is an impressive achievement, a remarkable tool!!!
Awesome but needs tweaking!
by DeMoNsLaYeR1410 on 2019/06/02 15:02
My nephew and I made a podcast with your app called Word_Exchange!, we love the app but we found a few inconveniences along the way. First off, THE VOLUME - we use the music you give us but we have no way to turn it down which ends up being kinda loud when people are trying to hear us. Secondly, THE MONEY - we did an ad for you on our podcast and still haven’t been compensated as promised, you should contact us and tell us if we did something wrong or we’ll contact you, either way getting paid is essential for us to make our podcast even better so more on that later. Lastly, THE TOOLS - the tools you give us are not as good as we thought they were gonna be, this includes volume, add ways to cut audio in a more advanced way, add more tools and effects to help podcasters achieve full potential. please I’m begging you, your app is revolutionary but needs some work, listen to the people and you’ll find that your success will reach greater heights, love ya and keep up the good work! Sincerely, Will from Word_Exchange!
Interview issues...
by Jeff Sanguis on 2018/03/09 03:20
I want to give this app five stars but I’m torn... it had me very excited about the potential of recording interviews over the phone. (And I’m sure it’s great for anchor that anyone I would interview would have to download the app as well) first time using it I was underwhelmed. My own voice comes in very low versus that of the person I’m interviewing, but that can be fixed in an edit. My biggest issue though is I did not know there was a time limit!? I felt horribly unprofessional as I had to “call back” the person I was interviewing three times because of being kicked off after about 6 or 7 minutes?? So it can be a cool app for recording, but I don’t know if I’ll be switching to anchor for my show over what I’ve been doing the last few years.
Update: 4 Stars
by arandomguy yt on 2019/08/07 22:23
Thanks for the recognition! I would like to make a couple more suggestions. My first is kind of weird, but I would like to see an end of episode to-do list after I finish recording an episode. The second thing I would like to see changed is the estimated listeners statistic. Right now, it tracks your “current” listeners by seeing how many plays all your episodes get within 30 days of recording. I would like to see this changed to the average listeners of your last 5 or 10 episodes. I typically get around 30 listens per episode, but my earlier episodes are less listened to and drag that statistic down, so it’s not too accurate. Thanks for your time!

Not a fan of the new set-up
by drjessthebrand on 2018/09/21 16:26
I recently updated the app and was excited to get something new to explore. However, I am not a fan of the app’s use of background music. While I like the more options... there are too many and you can not here the background choices in a simple fashion of sliding through like before. Once you select a background tone you must select from list and go back to listen. If it is not to your liking you have to start over. I was just as hard to explain as it is to use it. I hope they go back to the old way of selecting background tones. Especially with my 100th episode approaching! #Station11:11

I love this app!
by Nerdy Belle on 2019/01/28 04:20
Anchor is so awesome, it’s so easy to use, it’s a brilliant app and it allows any individual to start their own podcast and share with their friends or multiple different platforms. Anchor is integrated it with almost every social media site and it even allows you to record your own ads to make money. I’m so thankful to find this app I really hope that they continue to link with social sites and and form of media help this app grow and promote awareness of anchor anywhere they can. Most of all it’s free like completely free, no gimmicks, no bait clicks, you don't pay for anything. It's free, completely free. Did I mention that it was FREE!!!
Awesome!
by EricFoster on 2017/12/03 02:17
I found Anchor online while searching for an easy way to take an idea from some friends and turn it in to more. And Anchor has helped us make a fun podcast together easily! It’s easy to use for a beginner and gives you easy access to a larger audience. I strongly recommend it! And I can’t wait to see what else they add to make this even better! One thing I would ask for is a way to edit the audio on my phone or tablet tho! But that’s a minor price to pay for such an awesome service! I also wish that the segments could be longer than 5 mins, it makes it tough to edit smoothly at times.
got a call and lost a 40 minute recording!
by SWAGLOVER420 on 2018/04/26 17:51
Overall, i love this app! recordings sound great, everything’s layed out nicely and cohesively, however on my first recording, 40 minutes in i got a call and i lost all my progress! i couldnt find out how to salvage what i had done and ultimately suffered a huge loss. Admittedly i ahould have put my phone on airplane mode or something but i still wish the app had simply paused recording instead of deleting the whole thing. if there’s a way to find this audio that i’m missing i’d be ecstatic and give this app 5 stars but until this issue is fixed i can only do 3.
James ferschweiler’s review
by @jdf1188 on 2018/09/01 12:40
While the Anchor app is great to use when doing podcasts, I really wish that the anger app would be fully accessible with Apple screen reader (voiceover). I would say on a scale of 1 to 100 I would say the app is about 30% accessible. Even though I am a blind person, I can use anger without voiceover because I have some usable vision. However, if I was a completely blind person, I would probably not be using Anchor again until it became fully accessible for the blind. Hopefully soon this app will become fully accessible for the blind and will stay that way, because we wanted everybody to use this application. We don’t want to see people leaving. So to the Anchor team, please please get accessibility working and thanks.
Listen to The Kre8ive Podcast! This app is amazing!!
by Stpierre7 on 2019/02/06 05:48
I heard about anchor just in time as I was ready to launch my podcast! I did plenty of research and as a new podcaster I hated that I had to pay out of pocket to start something that I didn’t know where it would go and on top of that it was limiting me to time every month! Once I heard about anchor and looked it up I knew it was my podcast home! Quickly set up an account and a week later launched my first episode! So easy to get started! And everyone I referred to start their podcast said the same thing! I wouldn’t recommend any other app for your podcast
USER FRIENDLY & AMAZINGLY EASY
by HugoTheBoss2011 on 2018/03/04 04:43
I love the “Anchor”. It’s so easy to use and really puts “Podcasting” in the hands of novices and amateurs. I discovered “Anchor” yesterday through my webmaster and right away I set up my account and recorded my first podcast. It took about 10 minutes. Wow! I’m excited and looking forward to the coming opportunities “Anchor” will offer. However, I do have a request. When I did my first podcast, I had the option to add a background track. But now I just cannot find this option. It’s gone. My first recording is enhanced because of the background music. How can I find it if it’s still there or what’s going on? I liked it. Bring it back, please. Thank you.
9 episodes in and Anchor Has Done A Lot For Me
by Mike123jen on 2019/01/08 14:33
I never thought I’d be recording a podcast at a somewhat professional stature, but nine episodes later, it feels really fun to do and makes me express myself more often than I had ever been on the internet. Anchor has helped in doing this task as well as being a great platform to host the podcast that I do. Not only that, it also helps in delivering the podcast to other platforms such as iTunes, Overcast, and Stitcher. Overall, I’ve been really glad I’ve been using Anchor and I hope to make my podcast more enjoyable and more professional as time goes on.
Very promising but usability issues
by John5617282 on 2017/11/06 01:37
First thing first. Great recording capability, easy to add a co-host as well. Biggest issue is once recording is complete it’s very hard to figure out how to edit, add background music, then publish. First, editing can’t be done on phones or tablets, which is hard to understand considering this is a mobile app. Second, the terminology is confusing. Stations are really episodes, and disappear after 24 hours unless archived. Why? Who knows. And don’t ask what episodes are. Also, it’s not easy to share access with your cohosts. Not sure why. Seems like there are lots of opportunities to streamline the workflow once a recording is made and to edit and share. Hopefully a product manager can rethink this.
I love it!
by EveMarie88 on 2017/10/23 11:26
I love this app, because with it I’ve checked off an intention I had started earlier this year. Still learning the ropes, but it’s so much fun while doing it. Question(s): Will there ever be a time when there are no time limit? It beeps and stops every 5 mins. Will there be a time when I could edit into a category more discoverable on platforms such as iTunes and Google Play? Right now I’m under Health, but it’s too “broad” for what I offer. Will there ever be a time where the description box would give me more than just a set amount of characters? It would also be very nice if I was able to press “enter”, so it doesn’t look like a whole bunch of words.
From podcaster to podcaster: This app is AMAZING!
by Italianteacher1620 on 2018/04/24 04:02
All of us contributing to this anchor feed are seasoned podcasters at this point, so we’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to podcasting inconvenience. From Benjamin (“Above & Batman Beyond”) and Blake, Brandon, and Mag (“Steady Geekin’”), we thank you, Anchor, for making this new update podcast of ours nothing but a joy of PURE convenience!! We’ve been using it a ton and telling everyone about it. No excuses now! All ya gotta do is put your phone up to your ear and the recording begins! Sound mixing, equipment, hosting, RSS feeds, bla bla bla, all things of the past thanks to Anchor!! Thanks again, Anchor, from all of us at “Update: Nerd Style”!
Connectivity to designated friend/co-host horribly unfriendly
by Beracooda on 2018/05/16 02:04
I was introduced to this app from a friend who knew I was about to launch a podcast. The intent for the podcast was to have a designated co-host to an episode along with interviews through the course of our shows. Me and my friend, with an hour of patience, with multiple attempts tried connecting together on with no success but once. A call came into her phone and brought the caller on her phone into our podcast with no invitation. Very weird. Nonetheless, when I watched about it I was instantly attracted to the ease I advertised but I could find that same friendliness as a user. We have tried again with no success. Why can’t I call straight out and obtain someone via the app rather than it having to send a text message to connect?
Getting better, still needs iPad optimization
by Vic239 on 2018/05/27 11:48
This app works well for me for the most part. I have occasional glitches uploading audio files from my iPhone but these incidences are so rare I hardly notice them. My big request is for the app to support iPad optimization. I know that I can download the app to my iPad but it just looks like an iPhone app blown up and it doesn’t run as smoothly as on my iPhone. Crashes a little more on iPad. Overall though great work. I’ve been an anchor user since V1 and I’m proud of how much the app and company have grown and improved over time!
I think it’s a really good app
by Dio1134 on 2019/02/14 11:08
I see a lot of bad reviews and some medium ones. And I’m not sure if it’s because these are extremely professional podcasters that are used to whole studio set ups or whatever, but I’m just starting out and for me it’s easy to use and easy to record and publish something on my mind or something I’d like to talk about. I gave it 5 stars because it’s easy for me, and so far my baby podcasting steps are going. Hitting multiple platforms is awesome. The only thing I’d like that app to improve is the analytics of each episode. Similar to YouTube’s analytics.
Great design! Functionality needs work
by Tabc47 on 2017/10/20 14:34
I’ve been using the app for a little while now and I really do love the personal touch I get from the different rundowns. Design is attractive and the dial feature is streamlined... maybe a little too streamlined. I expected the dial to be a quick access for either all of my stations or the ones I listen to the most, but there’s not way for me to add, remove, or order what shows up on that page for me. I have to dig into my profile tab to find my other stations (that took me a while to find when I first used the app since the tab is labeled “people” instead of something a little more obvious like “stations”). I thought it might have something to do with how recent the latest posts were, but there have been times when a show in my library is currently on air but a show on my dial could be two days old. There’s not rhyme or reason that I can figure out why it does this. I’d love to be able to customize my own dial. Hopefully I’m not alone on this and they give us he option in a future update.
Unique and innovative!
by Den92 on 2017/10/30 06:32
Anchor has grown so much since its humble beginnings, and I couldn’t be more impressed. The latest updates have especially sealed the deal as a top “radio” contender. The only other thing I imagine will truly complete this radio experience is the ability to REALLY go live! It would be great if hosts could go live in real-time, invite call-ins, and commenters, then publish that recording in the end. A real-time radio experience, archived as a podcast or show for others to listen to later, yet still comment or call-in on. Thank you for a great alternative social media experience!
Overall Great but Recent Issues on iPad are Annoying!
by Kiri G. on 2018/08/05 23:18
I use the app on by iPhone 8 Plus, iPad Pro, and my HP laptop. I only have issues on my iPad Pro. When creating and adding things from my library, the app automatically signs me out each time but only on the iPad. It is frustrating and very inconvenient when I only have my iPad since I don’t like using my phone for creating the episodes (I use my phone to record only). I am consistently logging back in and losing my changes as I build new episodes. I hope it gets fixed soon, I’d hate to have to find another podcast building app. I need full functionality of the app on all devices, otherwise what’s the point!?!?
Thank you Anchor!
by The Sabali Podcast.. on 2018/01/06 00:27
My dream for the past few years was to have my own podcast and the good people at Anchor made my dream come true and not at a crazy cost to do so. I do this for the love and passion I have for doing podcast. Only thing I would like to add to this app is longer segments. It’s great to have long segments when I’m talking to another person through the Anchor app, but when it is just me recording by myself I wish the segments were longer than five minutes. Outside of that, I have nothing else to say, the app has been great to me and I thank you all at Anchor for that.
BEST podcast app I’ve ever downloaded, a LIFESAVER
by Héctor Rodríguez🇵🇷 on 2018/04/13 23:54
This app is a LIFESAVER for my podcast. I tried everything: Podbean, Bean sprout, Libsyn, Blubrry, etc. I used to have Podcast Machine for my podcast and it’s great until 1 GB 😂. So I searched for podcasts uploaders (Podbean, Blubrry, etc.) because the memory was getting full, but the problem was that I was in a budget (BROKE)!!! I was VERY close to delete my podcast. Then I saw an ad of yours (I don’t remember where) I was a little bit insecure but I downloaded it as my last resort. And it was THE BEST CHOICE. It RESCUED my podcast and the best of all, it’s FREE!!! THANK YOU ANCHOR FOR SAVING MY PODCAST!!! 🙏 A MUST DOWNLOAD app for broke podcasters like me 😂

Starting your podcast made easy everything you need on one app.
Such a great app for teachers!
by Mr. Walter's Epic Adventure on 2019/09/13 01:16
I absolutely love this app! It has changed the way I communicate with pets. No longer do I send newsletters home that parents don’t end up reading and just throw away. Instead I have students cohosts each week a podcast covering all the information we learned during the week. They also let parents know of upcoming important dates. I have created a template that kids work on during the week at home with their families. Then they bring it to me to look over and practice reading their lines. On Friday the kids are able to use the app easily and create the podcast. Once they are finished I send it out to the parents. The parents absolutely love seeing their kids get to take center stage!

We talked about doing a podcast for three years. Discovering Anchor took all the anxiety and work out of the experience and has made podcasting fun!
Nice home chore / cfb talk multitasking

Does not save info
by Zach were rev on 2019/09/06 00:23
Deleted the app and logged back in (updated software on iPad) and it let me login but seems to not have any of my information saved. No previous episodes or pics or anything. Would not recommend for podcast distribution.
Thank you!

Used to be good then ran into a lot of issues. No add friend feature from computer anymore; Phone to phone: friend got dropped from podcast after 40th minute, and auto save feature ended up not saving 2 of the podcast created.

Can’t use record with friends
by Dimitrius C7 on 2019/09/01 20:38
Just got the app and was excited to want to use it seeing as though me and my co-host live in different cities and the app has a record with friends feature. But.... it doesn’t work at all. It keeps saying that there’s no connection when I’m on WiFi smh tragic
Broken
by scooterbuns on 2019/09/01 15:30
Downloaded this app so I could record with a friend but the “add friend” feature simply does not work, i keep getting a message about not being able to connect.
Connect with friends feature is broken
by Marconix1 on 2019/08/31 16:16
This was the main reason I signed up with Anchor...waste of my time I guess. Will look elsewhere for something that isn’t vaporware.

by Team Showtime on 2019/08/30 16:06
I would give this app 5stars but suddenly I am not able to invite others to podcast with me. I keep getting a “we are having trouble connecting” every other app works ok so it is not my wireless connection. I put in a support ticket and it has been 4 days with no response. I loved the app until then. Also anchor has not published any of my podcasts to ITunes.
Anchor la mejor plataforma de creación
by Nebulosa79* on 2019/08/30 07:56
Sin lugar a dudas que con Anchor crear un podcast es magnífico, simple rápido y con un poder para distribuir tu podcast en todas las plataformas de audio disponibles es fenomenal y más ahora que está unida a Spotify. Es genial!
Payment method

Hi Tan Boy here. I’m from a podcast called The Late Summer Nighters and if it wasn’t for Anchor I wouldn’t have never done a podcast where I can perfectly Edit and easily do a podcast without paying or doing complicating things. Me and my group of out cast friends love using this and we always do a podcast once and week and we appreciate the team of Anchor for making an awesome podcast platform to use! If you ever wanna do a podcast use this app I guarantee it will be worth it!!
So happy for this app

Got a strong idea and good target audience, but no money? No worries Anchor is an unreal platform that turns average folks into super hero’s. If you need megaphone and cash to keep afloat while you concentrate on creating Anchor can help. Just download load, and start taking, they’ll do the rest. Thank you Jesus!

NEEDS A MUTE BUTTON!
by A. Chadwick on 2019/08/24 21:47
Anchor is a really amazing tool, but it REALLY needs a mute button so my conversations don’t include my coughs and throat-clearings! This seems like a no-brainer to me. Everyone is used to having a mute button during their phone calls. It’s even more important for Anchor! PLEASE ADD ASAP! Thank you.
Anchor FM 📻 is great 👍🏽

Editing on app isn't what you think..
by bb1.kehn on 2019/08/10 18:49
I love this a lot from recording and laying out the segments. The UI is friendly and makes everything easy to record plus the part where people can leave me voicemails, I want to love it more, but at the point I start editing 20 to 30 min segments on the app itself because I want to work on my podcast all in one app. My issue here is that when I edit where I cut and trim out parts, I feel that it over cuts some parts of the recording. I was mostly removing a lot of "uhhs and umms", also some pauses where we were just taking a breather and the audio was silent. Once I've hit saved, it does take some time to process, once it's done...I would listen and not only just my cuts were made... additional cut offs happen into my conversations. So, when I've listened to hear out my cuts were made, either some of my sentences were cut and placed to somewhere else. Idk what's going on

Only Anchor Got Me Started
by Misterdecollins on 2019/08/09 10:35
If it were not for Anchor, I would not have started my podcast. It is very easy to get going. Within 24 hours I started, recorded, and published my first episode.
Awesome
by Virtuous7 on 2019/08/09 02:59
Great app. I got started right away it had been a relatively smooth transition and consistency! I love everything about it and am having fun! I even like the podcasts they do about how to start one and it helped me find my mic!
This app just might change my life!!
by Stona__ on 2019/08/09 02:06
Seriously.
Great for starting up a podcast
by Casino24 on 2019/08/08 07:00
I don’t normally write reviews, but this app deserves one. It’s very user friendly for first time podcast users. Anchor also distributes your podcast to all platforms to include Apple podcast. Great app!!
Update: 4 Stars
by arandomguy yt on 2019/08/07 22:23
Thanks for the recognition! I would like to make a couple more suggestions. My first is kind of weird, but I would like to see an end of episode to-do list after I finish recording an episode. The second thing I would like to see changed is the estimated listeners statistic. Right now, it tracks your “current” listeners by seeing how many plays all your episodes get within 30 days of recording. I would like to see this changed to the average listeners of your last 5 or 10 episodes. I typically get around 30 listens per episode, but my earlier episodes are less listened to and drag that statistic down, so it’s not too accurate. Thanks for your time!

Super easy
by funkylucky on 2019/08/07 17:21
Super easy to make podcasts on. My iPhone’s built in camera is good enough to just record it all on that. You can export audio from Voice Memo’s, email, as well as import your own personal audio tracks and export audio recorded in app to out of app. Sounds effects arrangement makes it really easy and I like the colorful simple layout of the app. Sometimes I can’t tell what button I have to push to do the thing I want, but navigating around aimlessly helps me get there
Absolutely Amazing!!!
by ChrisG26 on 2019/08/06 20:37
I absolutely love using Anchor! I have two podcasts, Kid Commentaries and The Cinema Soundtrack Podcast. My brother does WhoCast and I have a friend who runs Monday Minutes- A Kid’s Take. We all love Anchor very much. My only problem is that you can only have one podcast per account, and I’m constantly switching between the two. All in all, it’s totally worth it though. The app is very easy to use and I love it very much.
Anchor is awesome!
by DanielMDavidson on 2019/08/06 12:05
This platform is awesome!
LooO0Oooved it!
by Cherry Kivumbi on 2019/04/02 01:06
I love the app and have been using it as the main platform for my podcast since 2018. The customer service support staff is amazing and gets back to you in a timely manner! Not only this but there's option for monitization and also sponsors! And it's user friendly and easy to use! Within less than a year anchor has been able to have my podcast on 14 DIFFERENT platforms, without me having to lift a finger! Would highly recommend to anyone curious about the podcast game and want an easier interface! From an expert to a beginner there's room on the app for everyone! And the best part....all these features are FREE!! Probably the best podcasting platform I have looked into and it's soaring through the competition! I recommend to all my friends and it's easy for them to find my podcast as well! But dont take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
Great app but..
by DiegoGuz05 on 2018/04/21 02:31
This is a great app to get started on creating podcast. My friend and I just got approved for Apple podcasts and pocket cast in a matter of days! The only thing keeping me from giving it a full five star review are the two following problems. The first one, the app needs to include a way to trim unnecessary audio recordings. There has been plenty of times where we are 15-20 mins recording and we get distracted by something and end up recording 2-3 mins off topic and guess what? We have to record again since we can’t trim the audio recording! That is very frustrating. The second problem, whatever the app does it kills my phone’s battery! No joke! Just today we recorded a 11 min episode and my phone went from 86% to 58% that was unbelievable. And before you say it must’ve been something else..no I have background data restricted on all apps with exception of Anchor, Mail, Clash Royale, and Play music. When I launch this app I close out of everything and only laugh this app and I connect to WiFi. Once those two problems are taken care of I will gladly change my ratings!
Is it really this bad?
by Paulliuww on 2018/05/09 17:30
I’m a bit dumbfounded. You have to hold down on the record button to record, and as soon as you let go with your thumb, it stops recording and go straight to a published now page. It does not allow you to add on to that recording. Another way you can record is by putting the phone up to your ear. Once again when you pull the phone down it starts recording starts trying to publish that podcast. Let’s hope you don’t have to scratch your nose or something. This app sounds so compelling with its meet up with other people with similar interest in the group or joint podcast, but these fundamental basic user issues are beyond my ability to comprehend. I’m sure it’s there somewhere, but I couldn’t even find a delete button to delete my first random scratch audio take. Is there any other app in the world where you have to physically be touching the record button on the screen for it to record? Am I missing something? With the rating of over four stars I’m just really confused.
Anchors Away
by Blake P Smith on 2019/02/17 03:20
So I wanted to say a little something about the application for the Anchor broadcast and so far I’m finding this to be very helpful and easy to use. I was always worried about doing a podcast because I thought I was going to have to go buy expensive microphones and headphones and apps for my computer and set all that stuff up with the speakers and wires and all that stuff but… I’m finding with Anchor I don’t have to do all that I can just do it right through my smart phone. And that makes it very attractive since just about everybody has a smart phone that they can download the app to and use this application so easily. So if you been looking for a while or thinking about doing a podcast I highly recommend using Anchor. You can be up and running literally in five minutes. So don’t wait do it today.
Love the idea (and the feedback from my experience using this app)
by Miles Donalds on 2018/06/22 19:57
I’ve been using this app for almost a week now and I’m delighted for the effort developers put in with updates and improvements. So far, I have tried mostly co-host recordings of the app and there are few concerns; For some reason, When i’m connected via 4G network (using iphone 6). I find a co-host, we connect (in the coundown phase) but then it always ends up failing and connections is gone (sometimes I can’t hear, other times it quits itself) so I weren’t able to speak co-host a single time (probably out of 15 attempts) with cellular network. Whereas it happened only 1-2 times with wi-fi networks. Also, every notification is useless when it says that someone’s ready to speak (and I get ton of it each day). everytime I click on that, I go to endless “looking for” screen which i’m already spending too much time anyways when manually “looking for it” myself. Also sometimes it is quite difficult to find a persons profile to whom I’ve had a co-host session with. that happens if i miss “a person published it” notification, then when i look into my library it gives only my own recording and I couldn’t find anything clickable about that person . I only see his/her name. again thanks to the people who are working hard to make things easier!! keep up the good work 🙏
Don’t waste your time!!!
by LexoButterfly on 2019/01/31 17:58
I have another podcast that I years that I’ve left the one I’ve had for years. I wanted to try something that had more ways for me to communicate with other people so this seemed to like the perfect app! Used it for the first two days it absolutely loved it until I recorded a 30 minute segment someone called me and it’s basically stopped my segment I try to go in and edit basically re start the recording and somehow it got deleted whenever I went back to check it. I’m not a fan because it does not pause your segments if someone calls you or anything like that so if you’re in the middle of the segment and someone calls you or you get some type of notification or anything it will stop and asked to be published Therefore you’re not able to restart it so it’s a waste of time. You’re just gonna have to basically restart your whole show. That just made me delete the app. I have so many calls coming in a day so I really look for a app that will pause so I can just restart my segment you cannot do this on here I’m so heated I wasted my time....
It was easy...
by Pianomezzo on 2018/02/26 00:13
So the versions before 3.0 were fine in terms of uploading music from your desktop, listening to the latest episodes of your favorites, commenting via text and looking at how many claps each segments. But now I don’t see the latest of my favorites or claps per segment. I also miss reposting music or segments I heard on different stations (or haven’t discovered how to do that in this version). Plus I liked how the music would go ahead and publish on my station. I normally don’t plan an episode or playlist mix for each day. Don’t get me wrong I love how I can reorder the segments and add them to previous episodes or compose a new one out of those. I also like how my favorites are all lined up in the Discover section. Lastly, I like seeing more stats. So please bring back said features or make it less complicated.
Nice!
by SteveMcCune on 2019/04/13 15:24
They asked me to leave a nice review, so here it is! I like these guys. I try not to get too attached to my apps but this is one I am liking. They make it too easy NOT to share audio! But, I confess, I have to be very careful about talking too much. After all, it’s not just about transmitting, it’s also about listening to others. Whether you transmit or receive, and whether you speak or you listen, AnchorFM makes it easy. Monetizing? Isn’t everyone? It looks like it will now be easier to monetize here, too. Stripe appears to be the weapon of choice for monetizing here. I have some sweet and sour thoughts when it comes to monetizing: I’m glad someone will make money, and I’m also thankful that if they make enough money they will still be able to put up with freeloaders like me! Nicely done! Keep it up. Stay the course!
Editing on app isn't what you think..
by bb1.kehn on 2019/08/10 18:49
I love this a lot from recording and laying out the segments. The UI is friendly and makes everything easy to record plus the part where people can leave me voicemails, I want to love it more, but at the point I start editing 20 to 30 min segments on the app itself because I want to work on my podcast all in one app. My issue here is that when I edit where I cut and trim out parts, I feel that it over cuts some parts of the recording. I was mostly removing a lot of "uhhs and umms", also some pauses where we were just taking a breather and the audio was silent. Once I've hit saved, it does take some time to process, once it's done...I would listen and not only just my cuts were made... additional cut offs happen into my conversations. So, when I've listened to hear out my cuts were made, either some of my sentences were cut and placed to somewhere else. Idk what's going on
Great app. Needs an Update.
by COOLIOMANE on 2018/03/24 09:06
This app is great. The downfalls are that it kicks us out & it deletes a draft. There should be a deleted section. That way you can put back audio already deleted. We should be able to add music to recordings because the system doesn’t to allow you to add music after you’ve recorded it. It doesn’t sound clear at times. This app needs to be UPDATED. Also, users can be able to add access to reference in new episodes. Just to be able to find the material. The app does not allow you to have a easy way of accessing a bigger public audio for you to find where your podcast is going and if it’s building. We should be able to have more control on our work & publish it where we want. Also, TRACK IT. Where are these podcasts going???????? PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES.
Never been easier to create podcast
by AProc on 2018/05/12 00:13
I have had a podcast now since this feature came out and it was so easy that I tell everyone about it. I have had nearly 10,000 podcast listeners / downloads since launching. Having a podcast opens doors and anchor made that so easy to have a podcast that it almost feels like I cheated compared to all my friends who had to go through so much pain to get their podcast launched. CONS: 1. For a while you had no options to remove the anchor promo at the end of every podcast. I think they have enough users now to give you the option of removing it. 2. For a while they stamped their logo on top of your logo. I think you can opt out of this now as well. 3. It still says “Andy Proctor / Anchor” as the author of the podcast. 4. It no longer pauses when you lift the phone from your ear which is inconvenient when you have to burp or sneeze or pause. You just have to name your segment. Not good for people who are on the fly. It will be nice to get to the point where we can just pay to have all the anchor branding removed because the software is awesome and it makes it super easy and makes it fun to interact with people on anchor as well. This is what I love about it most currently.
Cool idea getting in it's own way
by Zeromont on 2017/10/13 14:30
Such a great idea, small intractable content that's fast to produce and easy to consume. Love the idea. The interface though is just functionally awful. I can never for the life of me find the programs I'm actually subscribed to because the predominant listings are always the apps own productions (or at least the productions they overtly back, like these weird general round-up style programs I have zero interest in). I would love it if the app prioritized the content of the people I actually try to follow, I'm sure as content producers these programs are taking a listenership hit just from this interface alone and that's super frustrating and annoying. Finishing my shows automatically starts a show promoted by the app that I have no interest in whatsoever. This is a disincentive from frequenting the app and also from ever generating my own content. Such an easy fix though. Hope something changes.
The service every podcaster should be using
by A7xfanJDubs17 on 2019/01/08 14:00
Me and my wife have been running our Star Wars podcast (Nerdherder) for 6 months now. Every set of the way Anchor has made the experience easy and beneficial. And it’s all for free. Anchor cares about creativity and don’t believe in charging for it and in fact they go above and beyond to help you. They’ll distribute your podcast to popular apps and platforms, they provide you with sponsors so your episodes can be monetized, and they include a way for listeners to give monthly contributions. It’s all here in one app, for free. If you want to podcast, it’s never been easier. Try Anchor. And if you already podcast through some other service you can move over to Anchor pretty easily. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Anchor is fantastic, but fix playback
by LazarusReturns on 2019/05/01 17:49
I’ve been using Anchor since it’s early release and I have to say I really love it. Recording from my phone while I travel in a zoom iq7 and doing edits once I’m in the hotel room is fantastic. The library edition and the ability to trim audio clips was a needed edition and works for those quick edits. Let’s not forget the ability to call into shows. This feature helps drive content and interaction on many podcasts using Anchor. Fantastic part of the platform. Most of all set up is a breeze and getting the ok through so many different platforms was a breeze. Plus Anchor has ads you get paid for and you record your own! MISSING STAR Some may wonder, “Why the missing Star.” Well there have been some changes that are very troublesome. One is the wya I record and the other is playback. I will say I miss the ability to pause recording when in mid thought or if I need to look something up and don’t want audio noise in the background. Also playback just hangs every time I use it on Anchor. While I know I can download and listen I like being able to call in during an EP if I have something I want to contribute and with playback gaming every single time I use the app, it’s really not something I can do.
Pretty Freaking Awesome
by Bebaleo7 on 2018/05/21 09:54
Really amazing app and Sound quality by just holding the phone to your ear. Super easy to use. As far as having multiple people on one recording, I’m still a little confused. So far the Developers have been amazing at responding ... thanks guys/girls you rock. So is it true you can only record 10 minutes at a time with someone else? I was trying to add people to my solo recoding at it wasn’t working. I had to swipe right to “talk about a topic” and invite a friend as a co-host that way. I thought I read somewhere you could have up to 10 people live? I wouldn’t want that many but it would be cool to have up to 3 or 4 of us for certain topics. Keep up the amazing work and honestly thank you. This is an incredible service for the world.
Amazing for it being Free!
by Sk8terMan9 on 2019/04/02 19:18
I have been using this app for about a month now and it has been excellent. If you are starting out as a Podcaster this is the app for you! It’s simple and very straight forward. If you have been podcasting for a while and know what you are doing, then don’t even try it. This apps focus is getting your episodes out there and managing them. The editor is a side thing that is obviously not invested in or looking into developing much by their team. Which I would say is good because it allows the editing to be done by the user and not the app. As a creator, I always say “if you create something then flipping create it! Don’t half-app it and make someone else do it.” All in all, great for a solid podcast distributer.
WoW........JusT..........WoW!!!!!!!!!!!!!:-)
by LindaV50 on 2018/02/09 22:28
What an amazing, wonderful creative idea. You are all are so awesome for this. For doing this and having a medium like this. I can’t believe that you have created a way for my voice tolive on. No matter what I do I will be able to yell at my kids or tell my husband how much I love or loved him. No matter what. I will live on forever. And for you to offer it free😳. What a wonderful gem you are😍. If you have the honor of reading this, pat your self on the back. Then pat two more people that work beside you. Tell them Great Job. encourage them to pass it on to three other people. And when the compliment or words of affirmation come back to you, you will know how I feel right now. Spread the Love, Spread the Word, Spread the Voices.
So easy to use!
by Rogerzsn on 2019/05/21 03:38
I have a lot on my mind so I thought, well why don’t I start a podcast so I can share my thought process and voice my opinions. I was introduced to this app and it is amazing! Here’s why: The layout is simple to understand. You want to start recording a podcast from your phone, you have the option right in front of you. The app walks you through registration of your podcast to all major podcast stations, helps you add music and trim your audio, and really just does everything from you. I am BRAND NEW to podcasting so I didn’t want to spend time thinking about what I need to learn to get a podcast going and this app simply does almost everything for you. So far, I love it!
Nothing works and support really doesn’t help.. same ongoing issue for 3 weeks.
by Tenderoni76 on 2018/04/29 13:29
Background music doesn’t work properly. You can’t delete old messages so you can’t get knew ones. Recording uploads don’t save correctly. Still no distribution to 4 platforms and it’s been 3 weeks. Support really doesn’t help. New update did not fix issues. Tried several browsers as suggested. Even reinstalled app several times and rebooted my iPhone. Still the same issues.. and support just gives you the run around. Really no help. I thought this app was great too until nothing worked properly and support can’t even fix issues with their own company. Very disappointed.
Great idea - Selfish execution
by ZMPhysique on 2018/06/04 16:08
The fundamental of the app is such a phenomenal idea. One place to record your podcast that covers distribution. I’ll admit I’ve been on the edge of starting a podcast for some time now, and hearing Gary Vee talk about this app is what inspired the download and the start of my podcast. However, and this is a massive however. I can not stand the fact that Anchor feels that they can just brand themselves all over my content. Anchor has no right to play their advertisements over my content on iTunes, or brand themselves on my Facebook posts. The content and education that I’ve spent my life building doesn’t belong to anchor, and if your creating an app as a solution for some gaps in the market space that’s fine, but don’t try to claim that your app the reason why people are able to have a podcast. I’ve just uploaded my last episode through anchor and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone because of this branding issue.
Almost great, but fatal errors
by Smegax on 2018/04/24 01:17
The idea and software are great, plus there seems to be a lot of app support. However there are some major needs to make this app professional. There should be a setting that allows you to start and pause the same recording (it boggles my mind that I have to hold up the phone or keep my finger on the screen the entire time I'm talking and can't put the phone down) and second it has no "editing" tool for any of the clips. So everything has to either be perfect or cut into little pieces for it to be post-produced, makes it mandatory to post unwanted audio. It should at least have the settings that the iPhone record app already has. Additionally, the video making tool is great, but it only does segments and not episodes. And you can't combine segments, making any episode multiple videos (clutter). Also it would be awesome if we could upload our recordings from our iPhone voice memos, that would solve a lot of issues and do for more easy content. And what's up with the middle square on the interface? It's useless. There should be some settings for recording. Finally, I wish there was some generic background music choices like on video editing apps.
Find another app to use
by nonstable on 2018/11/29 21:16
I started on this app spring 2018. Admires the app from day one. But then anchor started “updating”. Wow this app is super unstable. Anchor has an extremely slow support system in place. You can ask for help and literally it will take about 7-9 days to get a response that doesn’t help you. I’ve been in the Facebook group and have asked questions and brought attention to the ridiculously slow support department. Yes anchor kicked me out of the group. Hey you asked for honesty. I recommend NOT using the app. Or just go to Speaker app. Inside the anchor app after you record your show. The app would/will upload it 15-25 times unless you reset the app. If you are going to use this app. I strongly advice you record you entire show. Then upload the show in anchor via desktop. NOT cell phone. If you need help or technical support. Ask people that use the app NOT ANCHOR. Anchor will blow you off literally.
Truly love this app and opportunity it provides
by KingDaddySmurf on 2019/07/11 17:12
This app has given myself and several friends a great opportunity to create and distribute a music podcast that is now being simulcast on radio stations because of the popularity in the community we create this for. Music community has embraced it and we are proud. Would love to be a featured show and get more sponsors, which we mix between ones matched by anchor to us along with ones we sell directly to bands. If this cost money to do or get a bunch of equipment we would not have been able to get this going, possibilities are now showing up we would not have had to better our futures without it.
Very happy
by Loomynarty on 2018/08/11 22:09
I think this is a very ambitious app that’s making podcasting more accessible to pretty much anybody and i love when things are made available to anyone. One thing i wish was in the app is a fast forward feature or at least the ability leave the app and come back to it later with the podcast you were listening to in the same spot. I’ve been listening to a podcast whenever i drive around but after i get out of my car and live my daily life i come back to the app and it’s pretty much reset, i usually just put it in the fastest playback speed and just tap the forward button like 200 times but if i was just able to slide to the spot i was at would be amazing

Easy to Use
by Thedew34 on 2019/07/14 19:19
First, thank you to the developers for a sleek, smooth design, both for the podcast creator as well as the listener. An improvement would be to allow creators to have a musical intro which fades completely for the rest of the show until the speaker is done, and which slowly returns to conclude and complete the episode. This would be amazing. All I have been able to do so far is either have music in the background or have just my voice. Another flaw is that when an episode has individual segments, the segments’ individual titles always revert back to “Part 1”, etc. Besides that, Anchor is an impressive achievement, a remarkable tool!!!
Awesome but needs tweaking!
by DeMoNsLaYeR1410 on 2019/06/02 15:02
My nephew and I made a podcast with your app called Word_Exchange!, we love the app but we found a few inconveniences along the way. First off, THE VOLUME - we use the music you give us but we have no way to turn it down which ends up being kinda loud when people are trying to hear us. Secondly, THE MONEY - we did an ad for you on our podcast and still haven’t been compensated as promised, you should contact us and tell us if we did something wrong or we’ll contact you, either way getting paid is essential for us to make our podcast even better so more on that later. Lastly, THE TOOLS - the tools you give us are not as good as we thought they were gonna be, this includes volume, add ways to cut audio in a more advanced way, add more tools and effects to help podcasters achieve full potential. please I’m begging you, your app is revolutionary but needs some work, listen to the people and you’ll find that your success will reach greater heights, love ya and keep up the good work! Sincerely, Will from Word_Exchange!
Interview issues...
by Jeff Sanguis on 2018/03/09 03:20
I want to give this app five stars but I’m torn... it had me very excited about the potential of recording interviews over the phone. (And I’m sure it’s great for anchor that anyone I would interview would have to download the app as well) first time using it I was underwhelmed. My own voice comes in very low versus that of the person I’m interviewing, but that can be fixed in an edit. My biggest issue though is I did not know there was a time limit!? I felt horribly unprofessional as I had to “call back” the person I was interviewing three times because of being kicked off after about 6 or 7 minutes?? So it can be a cool app for recording, but I don’t know if I’ll be switching to anchor for my show over what I’ve been doing the last few years.
Update: 4 Stars
by arandomguy yt on 2019/08/07 22:23
Thanks for the recognition! I would like to make a couple more suggestions. My first is kind of weird, but I would like to see an end of episode to-do list after I finish recording an episode. The second thing I would like to see changed is the estimated listeners statistic. Right now, it tracks your “current” listeners by seeing how many plays all your episodes get within 30 days of recording. I would like to see this changed to the average listeners of your last 5 or 10 episodes. I typically get around 30 listens per episode, but my earlier episodes are less listened to and drag that statistic down, so it’s not too accurate. Thanks for your time!

Not a fan of the new set-up
by drjessthebrand on 2018/09/21 16:26
I recently updated the app and was excited to get something new to explore. However, I am not a fan of the app’s use of background music. While I like the more options... there are too many and you can not here the background choices in a simple fashion of sliding through like before. Once you select a background tone you must select from list and go back to listen. If it is not to your liking you have to start over. I was just as hard to explain as it is to use it. I hope they go back to the old way of selecting background tones. Especially with my 100th episode approaching! #Station11:11

I love this app!
by Nerdy Belle on 2019/01/28 04:20
Anchor is so awesome, it’s so easy to use, it’s a brilliant app and it allows any individual to start their own podcast and share with their friends or multiple different platforms. Anchor is integrated it with almost every social media site and it even allows you to record your own ads to make money. I’m so thankful to find this app I really hope that they continue to link with social sites and and form of media help this app grow and promote awareness of anchor anywhere they can. Most of all it’s free like completely free, no gimmicks, no bait clicks, you don't pay for anything. It's free, completely free. Did I mention that it was FREE!!!
Awesome!

I found Anchor online while searching for an easy way to take an idea from some friends and turn it in to more. And Anchor has helped us make a fun podcast together easily! It’s easy to use for a beginner and gives you easy access to a larger audience. I strongly recommend it! And I can’t wait to see what else they add to make this even better! One thing I would ask for is a way to edit the audio on my phone or tablet tho! But that’s a minor price to pay for such an awesome service! I also wish that the segments could be longer than 5 mins, it makes it tough to edit smoothly at times.
got a call and lost a 40 minute recording!
by SWAGLOVER420 on 2018/04/26 17:51
Overall, i love this app! recordings sound great, everything’s layed out nicely and cohesively, however on my first recording, 40 minutes in i got a call and i lost all my progress! i couldnt find out how to salvage what i had done and ultimately suffered a huge loss. Admittedly i ahould have put my phone on airplane mode or something but i still wish the app had simply paused recording instead of deleting the whole thing. if there’s a way to find this audio that i’m missing i’d be ecstatic and give this app 5 stars but until this issue is fixed i can only do 3.
James ferschweiler’s review
by @jdf1188 on 2018/09/01 12:40
While the Anchor app is great to use when doing podcasts, I really wish that the anger app would be fully accessible with Apple screen reader (voiceover). I would say on a scale of 1 to 100 I would say the app is about 30% accessible. Even though I am a blind person, I can use anger without voiceover because I have some usable vision. However, if I was a completely blind person, I would probably not be using Anchor again until it became fully accessible for the blind. Hopefully soon this app will become fully accessible for the blind and will stay that way, because we wanted everybody to use this application. We don’t want to see people leaving. So to the Anchor team, please please get accessibility working and thanks.
Listen to The Kre8ive Podcast! This app is amazing!!
by Stpierre7 on 2019/02/06 05:48
I heard about anchor just in time as I was ready to launch my podcast! I did plenty of research and as a new podcaster I hated that I had to pay out of pocket to start something that I didn’t know where it would go and on top of that it was limiting me to time every month! Once I heard about anchor and looked it up I knew it was my podcast home! Quickly set up an account and a week later launched my first episode! So easy to get started! And everyone I referred to start their podcast said the same thing! I wouldn’t recommend any other app for your podcast
USER FRIENDLY & AMAZINGLY EASY
by HugoTheBoss2011 on 2018/03/04 04:43
I love the “Anchor”. It’s so easy to use and really puts “Podcasting” in the hands of novices and amateurs. I discovered “Anchor” yesterday through my webmaster and right away I set up my account and recorded my first podcast. It took about 10 minutes. Wow! I’m excited and looking forward to the coming opportunities “Anchor” will offer. However, I do have a request. When I did my first podcast, I had the option to add a background track. But now I just cannot find this option. It’s gone. My first recording is enhanced because of the background music. How can I find it if it’s still there or what’s going on? I liked it. Bring it back, please. Thank you.
9 episodes in and Anchor Has Done A Lot For Me
by Mike123jen on 2019/01/08 14:33
I never thought I’d be recording a podcast at a somewhat professional stature, but nine episodes later, it feels really fun to do and makes me express myself more often than I had ever been on the internet. Anchor has helped in doing this task as well as being a great platform to host the podcast that I do. Not only that, it also helps in delivering the podcast to other platforms such as iTunes, Overcast, and Stitcher. Overall, I’ve been really glad I’ve been using Anchor and I hope to make my podcast more enjoyable and more professional as time goes on.
Very promising but usability issues
by John5617282 on 2017/11/06 01:37
First thing first. Great recording capability, easy to add a co-host as well. Biggest issue is once recording is complete it’s very hard to figure out how to edit, add background music, then publish. First, editing can’t be done on phones or tablets, which is hard to understand considering this is a mobile app. Second, the terminology is confusing. Stations are really episodes, and disappear after 24 hours unless archived. Why? Who knows. And don’t ask what episodes are. Also, it’s not easy to share access with your cohosts. Not sure why. Seems like there are lots of opportunities to streamline the workflow once a recording is made and to edit and share. Hopefully a product manager can rethink this.
I love it!
by EveMarie88 on 2017/10/23 11:26
I love this app, because with it I’ve checked off an intention I had started earlier this year. Still learning the ropes, but it’s so much fun while doing it. Question(s): Will there ever be a time when there are no time limit? It beeps and stops every 5 mins. Will there be a time when I could edit into a category more discoverable on platforms such as iTunes and Google Play? Right now I’m under Health, but it’s too “broad” for what I offer. Will there ever be a time where the description box would give me more than just a set amount of characters? It would also be very nice if I was able to press “enter”, so it doesn’t look like a whole bunch of words.
From podcaster to podcaster: This app is AMAZING!
by Italianteacher1620 on 2018/04/24 04:02
All of us contributing to this anchor feed are seasoned podcasters at this point, so we’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to podcasting inconvenience. From Benjamin (“Above & Batman Beyond”) and Blake, Brandon, and Mag (“Steady Geekin’”), we thank you, Anchor, for making this new update podcast of ours nothing but a joy of PURE convenience!! We’ve been using it a ton and telling everyone about it. No excuses now! All ya gotta do is put your phone up to your ear and the recording begins! Sound mixing, equipment, hosting, RSS feeds, bla bla bla, all things of the past thanks to Anchor!! Thanks again, Anchor, from all of us at “Update: Nerd Style”!
Connectivity to designated friend/co-host horribly unfriendly
by Beracooda on 2018/05/16 02:04
I was introduced to this app from a friend who knew I was about to launch a podcast. The intent for the podcast was to have a designated co-host to an episode along with interviews through the course of our shows. Me and my friend, with an hour of patience, with multiple attempts tried connecting together on with no success but once. A call came into her phone and brought the caller on her phone into our podcast with no invitation. Very weird. Nonetheless, when I watched about it I was instantly attracted to the ease I advertised but I could find that same friendliness as a user. We have tried again with no success. Why can’t I call straight out and obtain someone via the app rather than it having to send a text message to connect?
Getting better, still needs iPad optimization
by Vic239 on 2018/05/27 11:48
This app works well for me for the most part. I have occasional glitches uploading audio files from my iPhone but these incidences are so rare I hardly notice them. My big request is for the app to support iPad optimization. I know that I can download the app to my iPad but it just looks like an iPhone app blown up and it doesn’t run as smoothly as on my iPhone. Crashes a little more on iPad. Overall though great work. I’ve been an anchor user since V1 and I’m proud of how much the app and company have grown and improved over time!
I think it’s a really good app
by Dio1134 on 2019/02/14 11:08
I see a lot of bad reviews and some medium ones. And I’m not sure if it’s because these are extremely professional podcasters that are used to whole studio set ups or whatever, but I’m just starting out and for me it’s easy to use and easy to record and publish something on my mind or something I’d like to talk about. I gave it 5 stars because it’s easy for me, and so far my baby podcasting steps are going. Hitting multiple platforms is awesome. The only thing I’d like that app to improve is the analytics of each episode. Similar to YouTube’s analytics.
Great design! Functionality needs work
by Tabc47 on 2017/10/20 14:34
I’ve been using the app for a little while now and I really do love the personal touch I get from the different rundowns. Design is attractive and the dial feature is streamlined... maybe a little too streamlined. I expected the dial to be a quick access for either all of my stations or the ones I listen to the most, but there’s not way for me to add, remove, or order what shows up on that page for me. I have to dig into my profile tab to find my other stations (that took me a while to find when I first used the app since the tab is labeled “people” instead of something a little more obvious like “stations”). I thought it might have something to do with how recent the latest posts were, but there have been times when a show in my library is currently on air but a show on my dial could be two days old. There’s not rhyme or reason that I can figure out why it does this. I’d love to be able to customize my own dial. Hopefully I’m not alone on this and they give us he option in a future update.
Unique and innovative!
by Den92 on 2017/10/30 06:32
Anchor has grown so much since its humble beginnings, and I couldn’t be more impressed. The latest updates have especially sealed the deal as a top “radio” contender. The only other thing I imagine will truly complete this radio experience is the ability to REALLY go live! It would be great if hosts could go live in real-time, invite call-ins, and commenters, then publish that recording in the end. A real-time radio experience, archived as a podcast or show for others to listen to later, yet still comment or call-in on. Thank you for a great alternative social media experience!
Overall Great but Recent Issues on iPad are Annoying!
by Kiri G. on 2018/08/05 23:18
I use the app on by iPhone 8 Plus, iPad Pro, and my HP laptop. I only have issues on my iPad Pro. When creating and adding things from my library, the app automatically signs me out each time but only on the iPad. It is frustrating and very inconvenient when I only have my iPad since I don’t like using my phone for creating the episodes (I use my phone to record only). I am consistently logging back in and losing my changes as I build new episodes. I hope it gets fixed soon, I’d hate to have to find another podcast building app. I need full functionality of the app on all devices, otherwise what’s the point!?!?
Thank you Anchor!
by The Sabali Podcast.. on 2018/01/06 00:27
My dream for the past few years was to have my own podcast and the good people at Anchor made my dream come true and not at a crazy cost to do so. I do this for the love and passion I have for doing podcast. Only thing I would like to add to this app is longer segments. It’s great to have long segments when I’m talking to another person through the Anchor app, but when it is just me recording by myself I wish the segments were longer than five minutes. Outside of that, I have nothing else to say, the app has been great to me and I thank you all at Anchor for that.
BEST podcast app I’ve ever downloaded, a LIFESAVER
by Héctor Rodríguez🇵🇷 on 2018/04/13 23:54
This app is a LIFESAVER for my podcast. I tried everything: Podbean, Bean sprout, Libsyn, Blubrry, etc. I used to have Podcast Machine for my podcast and it’s great until 1 GB 😂. So I searched for podcasts uploaders (Podbean, Blubrry, etc.) because the memory was getting full, but the problem was that I was in a budget (BROKE)!!! I was VERY close to delete my podcast. Then I saw an ad of yours (I don’t remember where) I was a little bit insecure but I downloaded it as my last resort. And it was THE BEST CHOICE. It RESCUED my podcast and the best of all, it’s FREE!!! THANK YOU ANCHOR FOR SAVING MY PODCAST!!! 🙏 A MUST DOWNLOAD app for broke podcasters like me 😂
