  • Great idea - Selfish execution Jun 4, 2018

    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.

    I've honestly had no issues with this app I love anchor. Best way to start or have a podcast. I've always loved radio and having my own radio show is just amazing. One complaint though, I want to monetize my radio show but I don't like the fact I have to give my banking numbers to my account just no, I wish you guys would add a direct deposit option for PayPal.

  • It would be perfect for me if it worked consistently Dec 2, 2020

    By Acercasebak
    I have gone through the list of troubleshooting; updated browsers, tried multiple browsers, used the app on my phone and iPad, made sure that was updated, emptied the cache, uninstalled and reinstalled...and I still am having such a struggle to just get my first episode live. First problem I faced was when I recorded for the hour limit it failed to process. Ok, I’ll cut the audio in half and edit each half...minor annoyance. But then I spent 6 hours precisely splicing and trimming one half of the recording and when I went to review it before continuing, it was all chopped up and jumbled up. I assumed I someone hit something wrong so I did it again....I have attempted to edit parts of it even, and it still gets all jumbled and edits out pieces I didn’t splice and remove and even swapped parts of the audio that were in the same segment that couldn’t have gotten swapped. After 9 hours of working on this I finally decided it isn’t user error and it’s just a buggy system. I love everything about the app concept and I just hope they fix their editing software to make it truly user-friendly so I can finally start getting my content out there.

  • Don’t waste your time!!! Jan 31, 2019

    By LexoButterfly
    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....

    Not to good but I'm adjusting to this app I have a hard time sending my messages, songs to social media, it gets stuck a lot when it's dented it want open up so I have to quickly remove it, don't have no support team to help me weed out the bucks other than that I will keep trying I like the sound volume could be more louder. So can I get an app on technical support to help me when I get stuck.

    Good for podcasting, but your hyperlinks to recorded episodes or podcasts causes my Android device to not be able to enter the GroupMe chat I'm the admin of. I'm asking you fix this to be mobile friendly and that I'll leave this review with GroupMe as well.

  • Great in general, HORRIBLY EXECUTED MISSING feature. Nov 16, 2020

    By Consumer defender
    This app in general has a great interface and is intuitive to use. However the developers are missing a CRUCIAL OVERSIGHT, which is record with friends. Why do I need to initiate ONLY on the app and invite my friends? Why can’t we do this exclusively through the web browser or app on PC and Mac?! We both have studio grade microphones and now only one of us can use it, because the other is forced to use abysmal phone mic audio. Not to mention the process of inviting a friend seems to only connect with luck and hope. We tried multiple times to connect, at least 10 times and only 2 of them were actually successful, but then one disconnected itself, despite strong internet on both sides of connection. REALLY dissatisfied with how the app handles podcasting with a friend. It’s utterly absurd how difficult and compromising it is to do something as simple as record a podcast with a friend online.

    Absolutely amazing app to create your own podcast. You cnya actually get PAID from doing it. They have very simple features like, the split tool, record, voice messages, music tool, and more. Anchor is doing such an amazing job, you have to try this out. Its really that good.

  • Way More Function and Production Quality Than Expected Mar 10, 2020

    By SpellMaestro
    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!!!

    Exceptional app store podasting! It hosts my podcast episodes In one channel. Able to share link to other social media platforms to get more listeners/viewers. Over 100,000 million subscribers to Spotify! Also only podcasting app that allows you to play music In your shows as an intro or anytime during it. I love this app and will keep recording my show their. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there is no comment section under podcast shows like YouTube does. 4 out of 5

  • Is it really this bad? May 9, 2018

    By Paulliuww
    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.

    Relatively intuitive functionality. Sound quality is excellent. Sometimes has vocal alignment issues from time to time, but overall satisfied with the app.
  • Love the idea (and the feedback from my experience using this app) Jun 22, 2018

    By Miles Donalds
    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 🙏

    i really really enjoy the app, this only my second or third day using it, my only problem is that i feel that its designed to the creators only not the regular user like myself, i need to go through many clicks to reach my fav podcasts.. if it was a little easier i definitely would have rated the app 5 stars

  • Great app but.. Apr 21, 2018

    By DiegoGuz05
    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!

    Everything was working fine until a few days ago, I can't see any of my previous episodes on the App( just on the website). No one can also view my episodes on the App, only on the anchor website. I need help urgently as i have tried everything i know, including contacting anchor support! Apart from that, anchor is easy to manage and great for podcasting.

    Looking forward for the update. Right now it's a bit glitchy at least on my Pixel 4xl, it skips recording (if recorded by the link) sporadically after 30 mins. Secondly, it doesn't export audio - this feature works fine on ios though.
