I can describe Anchor with one word and that is AWESOME. The fact that you can create a podcast and distribute it to major places like Spotify and you can easily share the link on your social media pages ALL absolutely free is astonishing!! Thank you Anchor!

What is your major malfunction?!
by austinjabberwocky on 2020/10/20 04:28
I’ve literally removed all copyrighted music and only used the music provided by the app and still it rejects my podcast! Why do you even have the Spotify music option if I get copyrighted for using it?! Screw this app! I’m sticking with Podbean!

Not Good for Listeners
by Gin17 on 2020/10/13 19:38
I am not a podcast creator, and I’m sure this is great for podcast creators, but I am someone who is just here to listen to a podcast that is currently only on anchor and the app makes it really difficult to do so. It lets me star a podcast, but there is no way to find my starred podcasts, I have to search for it each time. Also I have issues sometimes where the podcast stops and I try to hit pause and play but the pause button does nothing and the podcast never loads. Then I have to reload the app to get it to work and when I do that, it doesn’t save my place so I have to find where I was at again (which then sometimes doesn’t load when I try starting in the middle of the podcast).
I am so excited and love the arrangement and the service

by G.D blue on 2020/10/12 15:18
Achor is my absalout favorite way to make a podcast! However, if I want to interview someone who DOESN’T have an achor account, I can’t. For example, I wanted to interview my mom who lives in Main (I live in Maryland) on an episode about friends and Family. But, I can’t use the interview feature because she doesn’t have an Achor account

by fun with owen on 2020/10/11 04:20
I wish that you make a longer episode because I was recording a episode with one my friend then stopped I think around 15 minutes even tho it’s awesome because pretty easy to put your podcast almost anywhere like Apple Podcast, Spotify,Apple Music and almost any app that you can think of it’s pretty simple and also pretty nice that you can get money off of it for free that’s crazy to me do I think it’s Worth it absolutely also listen to my own podcast it’s about gaming subscribe the podcast name is GamingWithO Also I would change put some more music like chill music, scary music, exciting music, confusing music, dramatic music and many others type of music I also the dope feature that you can interview you friends or any that wants to be interviewed wish you were could that can make episodes release kind of faster because it’s bit slow it kind take around 24 hours even though great app I highly recommend this to anyone that who wants to make there own podcast sorry but I want tell more suggest I wish if hit tap stop recording it doesn’t stop recording straight away and you can pause it and you start again when want to or you hit done that’s bye for Real now

Only problem is that editing on mobile never really works right. Editing online is much better.
It was great at first
by Sydeebear on 2020/10/09 19:12
It worked great at first and I would have definitely recommended it to anyone to wants to start a podcast, but now I’ve been using it for 5 months now and it’s slowly been getting worse. When we record it puts our sentence in the wrong order and causes long silences between them. It also records our voices on top of each other so you can’t understand my co-host or I. I only continue to use this because I can’t afford a subscription to a different one.
Fantastic experience for any level podcasters

Okay I’m gonna keep this nice, short and sweet. This app makes it perfect to podcast. It’s has built in tools, you can EASILY record with friends or if you have guests on your podcasts. You can record, edit, and publish straight from the app. Best of all ITS FREE. Do I recommend this app for people who want to start a podcast? Hell yes. App rating : 10/10 Here checkout my podcast, I promise it’ll make you laugh, all made with anchor. My Podcast : A Random teenage podcast
Great app but..
by Boyjd23 on 2020/10/08 23:20
I love the app but I want to be able to see where my listeners are listening and how many plays I get on each episode from each platform I don’t know why you guys got rid of that in the update.
Amazing!!
by dbbehdjduv on 2020/10/08 19:04
I have wanted to start a podcast as a pet project for a while and anchor made it so easy to set up a trailer add music and really get going on editing and distribution. I had a problem verifying my email and Ronald form customer service worked with me for over 3 days and fixed my problem I 10/10 recommend them. So go start that podcast, you won’t regret it!

This is a really good app for making a podcast and is easy to use and it is free My podcast is called “Whats that” and anchor has made it really easy to make an entire podcast. You can also add music to your podcast so that you can hear a little music while you are talking. This app can also let you listen to podcasts. Once your podcast is on they will automatically publish it to other podcast listening apps It is great

Save Your Bacon
by diddykongking on 2020/10/06 05:48
So most reviews I read either compliment or criticize Anchor’s built in tools and tricks. I just wanna compliment some stuff that flies under the review radar. So I record my podcast on my Mac, I edit in Logic Pro, I handle all mixing and mastering and music Outside if Anchor. What I LOVE about Anchor is that it’s free. Our podcast isn’t super popular yet nor is it a source of income yet. That being said, the fact that Anchor allows us to upload every episode for free and distributed to all podcast platforms for free is MASSIVE. Sure, other platforms like simplecast might make you a podcast website. Sure, other platforms might have better analytics pages. BUT, being able to upload a weekly podcast that makes no money FOR FREE is miles ahead of paying $15-$30 a month to host a show that would only be draining your wallet at that point. So thank you Anchor. Thank you for allowing me to stay creative without losing my ability to buy groceries:)
What Anchor was then, and what it is now
by DJHey on 2020/10/05 23:44
I was on Anchor when they first launched and absolutely loved it. I met some amazing people who felt like family and were very supportive to me. Being able to listen to their posts and reply to them was amazing. But as a user who is totally blind, I noticed accessibility with it and VoiceOver has not been fixed in years. When version one was out, it was very intuitive to use, and I didn’t have any problems with it. At the time, Maya, who was working for them, was awesome about getting back to people like me if they had an issue with using VoiceOver with it. And she said that they would work on getting it fixed. Within a week, that accessibility issue was fixed and the app worked perfectly. But that was then when they were their own company, and this is now. Ever since Spotify took over them, Accessability has gone downhill. And regardless of how many times I’ve contacted the team about what accessibility issues needed to be fixed, they kept sending me the same response saying they cared about accessibility. But clearly, they haven’t! I feel like the blind and visually impaired community doesn’t matter to them, and that’s not acceptable. We’re all human beings, and regardless of who we are, we deserve to be treated like everyone else and allowed to enjoy using things like social media. To the developers of Spotify, I would highly encourage you to please look into the accessibility guidelines and reconsider making Anchor fully accessible for people like me in the blind and visually impaired community. Whether if they use an iOS or Android device.

Anchor has been getting worse and worse. We have 3 people on pod once a week. I can handle the bad connections. (It’s anchor, not our fiber optic). I can handle the mediocre sound quality. But the audio drift where people are talking over each other with large gaps of silence is too much. It’s gone on for too long. And since it’s all rendered in one track, we can’t fix it in post. Anchor works for beginners. We started with Skype. Grew to anchor. Now we are moving on to a professional a grade solution. What we don’t know. But it’s so bad with anchor, we are actually halting podcast production until software switch takes place. Anchor is holding us back at this point.

Great App! Love it!
by Creepageddon21 on 2020/09/30 22:29
I don't typically write reviews for apps, but I will for this one! I started my podcast with my best friend a couple weeks ago (How The F***?) but Anchor really started it all! I love the user friendly-ness of it all, and it's ability to connect me with my co-host is incredible! The only thing that seems to lag for me is renaming segments? It gets very hard to keep track when i make splits in my audio, so if the developers see this, Hi! i'd love to see an update or a fix on the renaming segments bit! or maybe just not put so many numbers when you save your audio splits! Any who, download the app it's very nice and super fun to record with!
No Export Options

Hello, I am Aanuoluwapo Adesina. I have been using Anchor for a while now. I have an episode I’m supposed to release for my podcast today, but the app isn’t allowing me to edit the audio. It’s wasted my time for two hours now and it keeps showing an error message!

L4ME podcast
by Tyler durrett on 2020/09/26 22:11
One problem with the app. The L4ME podcast is a good example of this issue. They have great content but one person sounds better than the other. I think the host is the one with better quality and the other guys mic cuts in and out.
Good App
by nikki Solo on 2020/09/25 17:33
I love anchor because of the mobile part. Taking it on the go and also being a new user was a bonus. But now it seems that the quality is off. I bought two new mics and rather good ones and for some reason when I listen to the play back there is static in my recording. At first I thought it was my mic so I tried another but it can’t be it has to be the app. One minute it’s recording with no background noise and then the next it’s static or clicking noise that I can’t tell where it’s coming from. Also the fact that I never got an apple approved but got most of the other platforms approved immediately.
Needs Auto Save Feature
by SisaPerla on 2020/09/24 22:37
Auto Save Feature on edits would be UBER helpful. I was 3/4 of the way done w an hour and a half edit and the app restarted. I know I could’ve saved half way through (which I will now be doing - hey trial and error) but it would make this app stand above any others if that was included. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

The edit function does not work in the way it is supposed to. I have double clicked to delete a segment, and it doesn’t happen. I cannot delete a segment, because it is attached to others that are not even part of each other. A terrible experience.

I wish that you make a longer episode because I was recording a episode with one my friend then stopped I think around 15 minutes even tho it’s awesome because pretty easy to put your podcast almost anywhere like Apple Podcast, Spotify,Apple Music and almost any app that you can think of it’s pretty simple and also pretty nice that you can get money off of it for free that’s crazy to me do I think it’s Worth it absolutely also listen to my own podcast it’s about gaming subscribe the podcast name is GamingWithO Also I would change put some more music like chill music, scary music, exciting music, confusing music, dramatic music and many others type of music I also the dope feature that you can interview you friends or any that wants to be interviewed wish you were could that can make episodes release kind of faster because it’s bit slow it kind take around 24 hours even though great app I highly recommend this to anyone that who wants to make there own podcast sorry but I want tell more suggest I wish if hit tap stop recording it doesn’t stop recording straight away and you can pause it and you start again when want to or you hit done that’s bye for Real now
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.
Lack of notifications
by Dgodofwar on 2020/06/24 12:58
Let me just say I do love anchor and what has done to my podcast and helped me do what I’m doing, been with them since I was only able to do 5 min episodes. But for several weeks now there has been constant updates I would say or crashes on the site and app, in which has been messing with my releases of my episodes. I got an email back saying there was an update going on in which I was unaware, but then it happened again and then the following week again and as I’m writing this review it just happened again. I don’t mind the update but it would be nice to let us know when it will happened so I can plan in advance to release the episode or schedule it in time instead of just not being to be able to do either. This has interrupted my consistency of my release dates in which I was force to choose other days but it happened to me again today. I’m only writing this review because with this pandemic I don’t get an answer until like two days later, I would appreciate at least a little knowledge on this part. Besides that anchor has most definitely exceeded my expectations on my podcast so I hope this will keep on going. Thank you
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.
Way More Function and Production Quality Than Expected
by SpellMaestro on 2020/03/10 10:31
I’ve transitioned my podcast production to purely using Anchor. Every tool I need is accessible on my smartphone. The only thing I’ve added was a condenser mic made for my iPhone. Right out the gate, people were commenting on how professional my podcast episodes sound. Now I just need to focus on creating meaningful content, and anchor pretty much does the rest. It’s like life- what you out into your Anchor produced podcast, is what you get from it. So don’t be lazy, and used the awesome tools using the anchor app. There now now excuse for a poorly produced podcast, because these folks give you the tools to create magic. Use this app and platform. You’ll be amazed how your creativity in format is fully supported by the podcast production tools they provide for us. And still, this app and desktop platform is absolutely free. I can’t say enough good about Anchor and their entire team of developers and customer service staff. These people really care about providing quality, so if your podcast sounds like crap, than it’s most likely your lack of structure and planning; because Anchor has made it easy for everyone. There’s just no excuse to have a bad sounding and poorly organized episode. Except for the actual person making the podcast. This platform and app rocks!!!
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.
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....
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 🙏
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!
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.
Editing on app isn't what you think..
by brotherkehn 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
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.
Can’t Hear with Record With Friends Option
by ChazU-tamed on 2019/12/18 13:31
If you want to record your podcast solo, it’s 5 stars, but if you have a show that requires a guest or multiple hosts, forget it. Record with Friends has always posed some type of an issue (albeit it was minimal and quickly resolved at first) but within the last month, the host can’t hear the invited guests at all. Although you hear the great “elevator” music and the alert sound that there’s a connection, but once connected you can not hear the actual person. Nothing helps; not using a speaker, not headphones, not rebooting the app, nor contacting support as they have no clue what the issue is and have no timeline for resolution. The platform would be amazing if it actually worked as advertised.
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.
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.
I love Anchor! (Some things that could make it better)
by ItsJuzztin😜IJ on 2019/11/18 00:03
I recently started a podcast called The ANJU Podcast. Sometimes me and my friend can’t always meet up to record an episode, so I love the record with friends feature. The problem I have with the record feature is that there is no pause button. I get you can stop recording and just pick up recording again and just add the two recordings into one episode in the editor, but it would be a great feature to have to be able to pause the recordings and play them again. It would make podcasting a whole lot easier. Overall, this is a great app for podcasting! The pause button while recording by yourself and recording with friends would make an instant five star from me. I look forward to more updates! -Justin
I love Anchor 💕
by BabyV28 on 2020/10/05 02:34
I found the love of Podcasts after I learn from other’s I have a voice for radio.. I tried just recording my voice in the mic app for reminders.. I perhaps have been trying to find other ways of relaxing to stay in a comfortable place in my life. Now that I have found the love of podcasts I considered making my own.. Thank you Anchor.. you gave me the privilege to Accomplish this new way finding ways to expressing my life to other’s who may be going through the same struggles in life that can relate to me in ways I never thought possible. So we all can share the love of the podcast world! wish me luck everyone and don’t forget to follow and subscribe to my podcast Cozy & Comfortable on Anchor!!
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!
Podcast For Beginners
by THE CALLED AND CHOSEN on 2020/06/18 18:27
This has been very interesting and educational on various aspects and for beginners it answers many questions and gives a lot of knowledge on how to pursue in starting building and creating in how to implement creative aspects in producing a successful podcast. I thank those involved for taking time to make it simple and for all the creative aspects that can be utilized and many thought provoking concepts to make your podcast real and applicable to what your goal and purpose for your listening audience. Thanks again for thinking it through from the initial beginning to a full fledged experience of excellence for the podcast person or persons as you make your vision a reality.
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.
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.
Uploading podcasts is so easy
by TarlyD on 2020/08/04 13:47
I have been using anchor since I started my podcast, not so perfect podcast. & it literally makes it so easy to upload my podcasts into the world!! All I had to do was upload it to Anchor and Anchor let me know when it was available on other podcasting vendors. & from then on out, as soon as I uploaded my podcast episodes to anchor, they were immediately available on all podcasting platforms. I would never actually sponsor something I don’t believe in, but I have felt the need to put a sponsor segment for anchor at the beginning of each episode because I believe in Anchor. Thank you so much for making it so easy!
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

Good but had a problem
by Uncle Z 20 on 2020/08/08 09:22
My first thought of this app was great but I had a hard time trying to export the podcast and I looked it up but it only did a portion at a time I want to upload the whole thing on my website and when I tried it only did each segment by themselves and then I saw a button to add the segment to my podcast so I thought maybe it wasn’t added so I added them but I came to realize it just added then a second time which is no big deal I would just delete them and when I did it delete both rather then just one so by then end I didn’t have my podcast at all and an entire hour of my work was wasted hopefully it was just user error I will try again and see just disappointed my entire episode got deleted
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
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!!!
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.
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!

It’s great, except
by ZachAttack05 on 2020/07/28 15:26
I love this app, it truly makes distributing my podcast easy for free, without (from what I can tell) annoying branding that I didn’t put in the podcast myself. However, with that said, there are some minor things that need to be fixed. Sometimes, when trying to change windows (episodes to account settings for example), it simply just doesn’t. This causes me to have to restart the app, which is pretty annoying. Another thing is that the app lacks the option to hit the return or enter key to do a new line. The website has this, but for some reason the app doesn’t. If they could fix these two things my review would be five stars for sure.
I love this app!

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!!!
Great App! Love it!
by Creepageddon21 on 2020/09/30 22:29
I don't typically write reviews for apps, but I will for this one! I started my podcast with my best friend a couple weeks ago (How The F***?) but Anchor really started it all! I love the user friendly-ness of it all, and it's ability to connect me with my co-host is incredible! The only thing that seems to lag for me is renaming segments? It gets very hard to keep track when i make splits in my audio, so if the developers see this, Hi! i'd love to see an update or a fix on the renaming segments bit! or maybe just not put so many numbers when you save your audio splits! Any who, download the app it's very nice and super fun to record with!
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.
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.
4 stars
by erica-leigh on 2020/01/24 09:20
I really enjoy using this app. My friend and I started a podcast a couple months back and this app made it so easy to consistently post and record; especially when my friend and I live in two different states. I rate it with 4 stars instead of 5 because we did have some issues when we edited our podcast the first time with the app, it ended up not processing our episode and we had to redo all the edits in another app. There are a couple more times when our podcast wouldn’t process and we’d have to start over again. Besides the fact, I would definitely recommend this app to anyone interested in starting a podcast!
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.
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.
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”!
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.
A stodgy app, difficult to edit on
by brendastarr on 2020/06/29 00:56
Anchor, in general, is a great package. It’s excellent for very simple podcasts. However, the app has issues. It doesn’t update plays and payments as quickly as the website, and you can fret about a lack of traffic only to find out that you’re actually doing fine. Also, you can only edit tracks in the app, not on the desk top site, and it can drive you crazy trying to eliminate a simple glitch. There’s also no fade up and fade down future for background music, so you either have to have it play under the entire track or go without it. These little glitches are going to drive users away as soon as they get some development expertise.

by austinjabberwocky on 2020/10/20 04:28
I’ve literally removed all copyrighted music and only used the music provided by the app and still it rejects my podcast! Why do you even have the Spotify music option if I get copyrighted for using it?! Screw this app! I’m sticking with Podbean!

Not Good for Listeners
by Gin17 on 2020/10/13 19:38
I am not a podcast creator, and I’m sure this is great for podcast creators, but I am someone who is just here to listen to a podcast that is currently only on anchor and the app makes it really difficult to do so. It lets me star a podcast, but there is no way to find my starred podcasts, I have to search for it each time. Also I have issues sometimes where the podcast stops and I try to hit pause and play but the pause button does nothing and the podcast never loads. Then I have to reload the app to get it to work and when I do that, it doesn’t save my place so I have to find where I was at again (which then sometimes doesn’t load when I try starting in the middle of the podcast).
I am so excited and love the arrangement and the service

Achor is my absalout favorite way to make a podcast! However, if I want to interview someone who DOESN’T have an achor account, I can’t. For example, I wanted to interview my mom who lives in Main (I live in Maryland) on an episode about friends and Family. But, I can’t use the interview feature because she doesn’t have an Achor account

I wish that you make a longer episode because I was recording a episode with one my friend then stopped I think around 15 minutes even tho it’s awesome because pretty easy to put your podcast almost anywhere like Apple Podcast, Spotify,Apple Music and almost any app that you can think of it’s pretty simple and also pretty nice that you can get money off of it for free that’s crazy to me do I think it’s Worth it absolutely also listen to my own podcast it’s about gaming subscribe the podcast name is GamingWithO Also I would change put some more music like chill music, scary music, exciting music, confusing music, dramatic music and many others type of music I also the dope feature that you can interview you friends or any that wants to be interviewed wish you were could that can make episodes release kind of faster because it’s bit slow it kind take around 24 hours even though great app I highly recommend this to anyone that who wants to make there own podcast sorry but I want tell more suggest I wish if hit tap stop recording it doesn’t stop recording straight away and you can pause it and you start again when want to or you hit done that’s bye for Real now

It was great at first
by Sydeebear on 2020/10/09 19:12
It worked great at first and I would have definitely recommended it to anyone to wants to start a podcast, but now I’ve been using it for 5 months now and it’s slowly been getting worse. When we record it puts our sentence in the wrong order and causes long silences between them. It also records our voices on top of each other so you can’t understand my co-host or I. I only continue to use this because I can’t afford a subscription to a different one.
Fantastic experience for any level podcasters

I have wanted to start a podcast as a pet project for a while and anchor made it so easy to set up a trailer add music and really get going on editing and distribution. I had a problem verifying my email and Ronald form customer service worked with me for over 3 days and fixed my problem I 10/10 recommend them. So go start that podcast, you won’t regret it!

You can also add music to your podcast so that you can hear a little music while you are talking. This app can also let you listen to podcasts. Once your podcast is on they will automatically publish it to other podcast listening apps It is great

Save Your Bacon
by diddykongking on 2020/10/06 05:48
So most reviews I read either compliment or criticize Anchor’s built in tools and tricks. I just wanna compliment some stuff that flies under the review radar. So I record my podcast on my Mac, I edit in Logic Pro, I handle all mixing and mastering and music Outside if Anchor. What I LOVE about Anchor is that it’s free. Our podcast isn’t super popular yet nor is it a source of income yet. That being said, the fact that Anchor allows us to upload every episode for free and distributed to all podcast platforms for free is MASSIVE. Sure, other platforms like simplecast might make you a podcast website. Sure, other platforms might have better analytics pages. BUT, being able to upload a weekly podcast that makes no money FOR FREE is miles ahead of paying $15-$30 a month to host a show that would only be draining your wallet at that point. So thank you Anchor. Thank you for allowing me to stay creative without losing my ability to buy groceries:)
What Anchor was then, and what it is now
by DJHey on 2020/10/05 23:44
I was on Anchor when they first launched and absolutely loved it. I met some amazing people who felt like family and were very supportive to me. Being able to listen to their posts and reply to them was amazing. But as a user who is totally blind, I noticed accessibility with it and VoiceOver has not been fixed in years. When version one was out, it was very intuitive to use, and I didn’t have any problems with it. At the time, Maya, who was working for them, was awesome about getting back to people like me if they had an issue with using VoiceOver with it. And she said that they would work on getting it fixed. Within a week, that accessibility issue was fixed and the app worked perfectly. But that was then when they were their own company, and this is now. Ever since Spotify took over them, Accessability has gone downhill. And regardless of how many times I’ve contacted the team about what accessibility issues needed to be fixed, they kept sending me the same response saying they cared about accessibility. But clearly, they haven’t! I feel like the blind and visually impaired community doesn’t matter to them, and that’s not acceptable. We’re all human beings, and regardless of who we are, we deserve to be treated like everyone else and allowed to enjoy using things like social media. To the developers of Spotify, I would highly encourage you to please look into the accessibility guidelines and reconsider making Anchor fully accessible for people like me in the blind and visually impaired community. Whether if they use an iOS or Android device.

I found the love of Podcasts after I learn from other’s I have a voice for radio.. I tried just recording my voice in the mic app for reminders..

I love this app because even though I’m really young it’s really easy to distribute your podcast to other platforms and it’s really it’s really easy to record your videos and have special guests come on in your videos and it’s really fun plus you can see other fun podcast
Great podcast app!

Anchor has been getting worse and worse. We have 3 people on pod once a week. I can handle the bad connections. (It’s anchor, not our fiber optic). I can handle the mediocre sound quality. But the audio drift where people are talking over each other with large gaps of silence is too much. It’s gone on for too long. And since it’s all rendered in one track, we can’t fix it in post. Anchor works for beginners. We started with Skype. Grew to anchor. Now we are moving on to a professional a grade solution. What we don’t know. But it’s so bad with anchor, we are actually halting podcast production until software switch takes place. Anchor is holding us back at this point.
Having trouble

Great App! Love it!
by Creepageddon21 on 2020/09/30 22:29
I don't typically write reviews for apps, but I will for this one! I started my podcast with my best friend a couple weeks ago (How The F***?) but Anchor really started it all! I love the user friendly-ness of it all, and it's ability to connect me with my co-host is incredible! The only thing that seems to lag for me is renaming segments? It gets very hard to keep track when i make splits in my audio, so if the developers see this, Hi! i'd love to see an update or a fix on the renaming segments bit! or maybe just not put so many numbers when you save your audio splits! Any who, download the app it's very nice and super fun to record with!
No Export Options
by Sharlssssd on 2020/09/29 05:08
Can no longer Export Audio (on iPhone) from your own library, can only send links. No way to transfer to any audio editing program. PLEASE FIX!!
I like this app but...

Is possible if you guys can add a comment section? So listeners can leave a comment on your anchor podcast?

Error processing audio
by Aanu Adesina on 2020/09/28 10:41
Hello, I am Aanuoluwapo Adesina. I have been using Anchor for a while now. I have an episode I’m supposed to release for my podcast today, but the app isn’t allowing me to edit the audio. It’s wasted my time for two hours now and it keeps showing an error message!
Impressed
by Jrsweeney92 on 2020/09/28 05:49
I was impressed with how incredibly simple it is to use this app. I had to make a podcast for a project for school. I was pleased and relieved at how easy it was!

L4ME podcast
by Tyler durrett on 2020/09/26 22:11
One problem with the app. The L4ME podcast is a good example of this issue. They have great content but one person sounds better than the other. I think the host is the one with better quality and the other guys mic cuts in and out.
Good App
by nikki Solo on 2020/09/25 17:33
I love anchor because of the mobile part. Taking it on the go and also being a new user was a bonus. But now it seems that the quality is off. I bought two new mics and rather good ones and for some reason when I listen to the play back there is static in my recording. At first I thought it was my mic so I tried another but it can’t be it has to be the app. One minute it’s recording with no background noise and then the next it’s static or clicking noise that I can’t tell where it’s coming from. Also the fact that I never got an apple approved but got most of the other platforms approved immediately.
Needs Auto Save Feature
by SisaPerla on 2020/09/24 22:37
Auto Save Feature on edits would be UBER helpful. I was 3/4 of the way done w an hour and a half edit and the app restarted. I know I could’ve saved half way through (which I will now be doing - hey trial and error) but it would make this app stand above any others if that was included. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

I absolutely love anchor . The only thing is, it is really difficult to edit with the app. I believe editing should be way easier. I really hope that can be worked on because, it is a very important factor in the production of my podcast episodes. Thank you

Not Happy
by PBearn on 2020/09/15 16:39
The edit function does not work in the way it is supposed to. I have double clicked to delete a segment, and it doesn’t happen. I cannot delete a segment, because it is attached to others that are not even part of each other. A terrible experience.

I love anchor podcast and the easy to use lay out. You can’t to. And it’s free! Plus you get paid, so it’s money in bank. Not to mention it’s fun to put together your own show. Try anchor now. You love it toANCHOR IS THD BEST
Just amazing! 👍🏻❤️ but...
by fun with owen on 2020/10/11 04:20
I wish that you make a longer episode because I was recording a episode with one my friend then stopped I think around 15 minutes even tho it’s awesome because pretty easy to put your podcast almost anywhere like Apple Podcast, Spotify,Apple Music and almost any app that you can think of it’s pretty simple and also pretty nice that you can get money off of it for free that’s crazy to me do I think it’s Worth it absolutely also listen to my own podcast it’s about gaming subscribe the podcast name is GamingWithO Also I would change put some more music like chill music, scary music, exciting music, confusing music, dramatic music and many others type of music I also the dope feature that you can interview you friends or any that wants to be interviewed wish you were could that can make episodes release kind of faster because it’s bit slow it kind take around 24 hours even though great app I highly recommend this to anyone that who wants to make there own podcast sorry but I want tell more suggest I wish if hit tap stop recording it doesn’t stop recording straight away and you can pause it and you start again when want to or you hit done that’s bye for Real now
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.
Lack of notifications
by Dgodofwar on 2020/06/24 12:58
Let me just say I do love anchor and what has done to my podcast and helped me do what I’m doing, been with them since I was only able to do 5 min episodes. But for several weeks now there has been constant updates I would say or crashes on the site and app, in which has been messing with my releases of my episodes. I got an email back saying there was an update going on in which I was unaware, but then it happened again and then the following week again and as I’m writing this review it just happened again. I don’t mind the update but it would be nice to let us know when it will happened so I can plan in advance to release the episode or schedule it in time instead of just not being to be able to do either. This has interrupted my consistency of my release dates in which I was force to choose other days but it happened to me again today. I’m only writing this review because with this pandemic I don’t get an answer until like two days later, I would appreciate at least a little knowledge on this part. Besides that anchor has most definitely exceeded my expectations on my podcast so I hope this will keep on going. Thank you
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.
Way More Function and Production Quality Than Expected
by SpellMaestro on 2020/03/10 10:31
I’ve transitioned my podcast production to purely using Anchor. Every tool I need is accessible on my smartphone. The only thing I’ve added was a condenser mic made for my iPhone. Right out the gate, people were commenting on how professional my podcast episodes sound. Now I just need to focus on creating meaningful content, and anchor pretty much does the rest. It’s like life- what you out into your Anchor produced podcast, is what you get from it. So don’t be lazy, and used the awesome tools using the anchor app. There now now excuse for a poorly produced podcast, because these folks give you the tools to create magic. Use this app and platform. You’ll be amazed how your creativity in format is fully supported by the podcast production tools they provide for us. And still, this app and desktop platform is absolutely free. I can’t say enough good about Anchor and their entire team of developers and customer service staff. These people really care about providing quality, so if your podcast sounds like crap, than it’s most likely your lack of structure and planning; because Anchor has made it easy for everyone. There’s just no excuse to have a bad sounding and poorly organized episode. Except for the actual person making the podcast. This platform and app rocks!!!
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.
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....
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 🙏
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!
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.
Editing on app isn't what you think..
by brotherkehn 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
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.
Can’t Hear with Record With Friends Option
by ChazU-tamed on 2019/12/18 13:31
If you want to record your podcast solo, it’s 5 stars, but if you have a show that requires a guest or multiple hosts, forget it. Record with Friends has always posed some type of an issue (albeit it was minimal and quickly resolved at first) but within the last month, the host can’t hear the invited guests at all. Although you hear the great “elevator” music and the alert sound that there’s a connection, but once connected you can not hear the actual person. Nothing helps; not using a speaker, not headphones, not rebooting the app, nor contacting support as they have no clue what the issue is and have no timeline for resolution. The platform would be amazing if it actually worked as advertised.
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.
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.
I love Anchor! (Some things that could make it better)
by ItsJuzztin😜IJ on 2019/11/18 00:03
I recently started a podcast called The ANJU Podcast. Sometimes me and my friend can’t always meet up to record an episode, so I love the record with friends feature. The problem I have with the record feature is that there is no pause button. I get you can stop recording and just pick up recording again and just add the two recordings into one episode in the editor, but it would be a great feature to have to be able to pause the recordings and play them again. It would make podcasting a whole lot easier. Overall, this is a great app for podcasting! The pause button while recording by yourself and recording with friends would make an instant five star from me. I look forward to more updates! -Justin
I love Anchor 💕
by BabyV28 on 2020/10/05 02:34
I found the love of Podcasts after I learn from other’s I have a voice for radio.. I tried just recording my voice in the mic app for reminders.. I perhaps have been trying to find other ways of relaxing to stay in a comfortable place in my life. Now that I have found the love of podcasts I considered making my own.. Thank you Anchor.. you gave me the privilege to Accomplish this new way finding ways to expressing my life to other’s who may be going through the same struggles in life that can relate to me in ways I never thought possible. So we all can share the love of the podcast world! wish me luck everyone and don’t forget to follow and subscribe to my podcast Cozy & Comfortable on Anchor!!

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!
Podcast For Beginners
by THE CALLED AND CHOSEN on 2020/06/18 18:27
This has been very interesting and educational on various aspects and for beginners it answers many questions and gives a lot of knowledge on how to pursue in starting building and creating in how to implement creative aspects in producing a successful podcast. I thank those involved for taking time to make it simple and for all the creative aspects that can be utilized and many thought provoking concepts to make your podcast real and applicable to what your goal and purpose for your listening audience. Thanks again for thinking it through from the initial beginning to a full fledged experience of excellence for the podcast person or persons as you make your vision a reality.
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.
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.
Uploading podcasts is so easy
by TarlyD on 2020/08/04 13:47
I have been using anchor since I started my podcast, not so perfect podcast. & it literally makes it so easy to upload my podcasts into the world!! All I had to do was upload it to Anchor and Anchor let me know when it was available on other podcasting vendors. & from then on out, as soon as I uploaded my podcast episodes to anchor, they were immediately available on all podcasting platforms. I would never actually sponsor something I don’t believe in, but I have felt the need to put a sponsor segment for anchor at the beginning of each episode because I believe in Anchor. Thank you so much for making it so easy!
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

Good but had a problem
by Uncle Z 20 on 2020/08/08 09:22
My first thought of this app was great but I had a hard time trying to export the podcast and I looked it up but it only did a portion at a time I want to upload the whole thing on my website and when I tried it only did each segment by themselves and then I saw a button to add the segment to my podcast so I thought maybe it wasn’t added so I added them but I came to realize it just added then a second time which is no big deal I would just delete them and when I did it delete both rather then just one so by then end I didn’t have my podcast at all and an entire hour of my work was wasted hopefully it was just user error I will try again and see just disappointed my entire episode got deleted
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
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!!!
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.
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!

It’s great, except
by ZachAttack05 on 2020/07/28 15:26
I love this app, it truly makes distributing my podcast easy for free, without (from what I can tell) annoying branding that I didn’t put in the podcast myself. However, with that said, there are some minor things that need to be fixed. Sometimes, when trying to change windows (episodes to account settings for example), it simply just doesn’t. This causes me to have to restart the app, which is pretty annoying. Another thing is that the app lacks the option to hit the return or enter key to do a new line. The website has this, but for some reason the app doesn’t. If they could fix these two things my review would be five stars for sure.
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!!!
Great App! Love it!
by Creepageddon21 on 2020/09/30 22:29
I don't typically write reviews for apps, but I will for this one! I started my podcast with my best friend a couple weeks ago (How The F***?) but Anchor really started it all! I love the user friendly-ness of it all, and it's ability to connect me with my co-host is incredible! The only thing that seems to lag for me is renaming segments? It gets very hard to keep track when i make splits in my audio, so if the developers see this, Hi! i'd love to see an update or a fix on the renaming segments bit! or maybe just not put so many numbers when you save your audio splits! Any who, download the app it's very nice and super fun to record with!
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.
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.
4 stars
by erica-leigh on 2020/01/24 09:20
I really enjoy using this app. My friend and I started a podcast a couple months back and this app made it so easy to consistently post and record; especially when my friend and I live in two different states. I rate it with 4 stars instead of 5 because we did have some issues when we edited our podcast the first time with the app, it ended up not processing our episode and we had to redo all the edits in another app. There are a couple more times when our podcast wouldn’t process and we’d have to start over again. Besides the fact, I would definitely recommend this app to anyone interested in starting a podcast!
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.
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.
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”!
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.
A stodgy app, difficult to edit on
by brendastarr on 2020/06/29 00:56
Anchor, in general, is a great package. It’s excellent for very simple podcasts. However, the app has issues. It doesn’t update plays and payments as quickly as the website, and you can fret about a lack of traffic only to find out that you’re actually doing fine. Also, you can only edit tracks in the app, not on the desk top site, and it can drive you crazy trying to eliminate a simple glitch. There’s also no fade up and fade down future for background music, so you either have to have it play under the entire track or go without it. These little glitches are going to drive users away as soon as they get some development expertise.
