Move to laptop version 3/5
I think the app is amazing in its entirety but I am confused on why you guys haven’t moved to the MacBooks and developed an user friendly app for it. It would be beneficial.
The app is great but... 3/5
Its missing support from 3rd party microphones no? I try to record and when I go into group recording the audio defaults back to my phones speaker and it doesn’t detect the mic. It’s really unfortunate because the mic I have is so expensive and I got specifically for this app. I hope this is something that gets fixed in the future.
It just kept crashing. 3/5
I opened it and tried to make a Podcast, however it just kept crashing every time I tried to make one.
App keeps crashing 1/5
I keep trying to add an episode to my list and every time I upload it the app kicks me off thanks a lot for nothing
Can't listen 1/5
sadly I can't even find my friend on here. To listen too.
Good until it crashed. 2/5
I was recording and once I got to two minutes it quit the app and continues happening every time I attempt to go back /:
Edit: I deleted and redone loaded the app and now it’s working, but I still feel like this shouldn’t happen.
Need a fix 5/5
When I remove background music it changes my clip to the full unedited clip, every single time. Then I have to find the clip and re-edit it.
Excellent App 5/5
I have been using the app since July 2018 and have been very happy with it. I’ve made 18 health podcasts ( Heal Thyself Radio) to date and have been up as high as #6 on Apple Podcast rankings under HEALTH category. I like how they continue to improve their app regularly. I’ve been promoting my podcasts primarily using Instagram ( @ericmadridmd) and have found this an ok way to send traffic to my page. I also use Facebook to promote each podcast I release.
On the flip side, I wish the anchor store listed health and fitness podcasts under its own unique category. This is a popular genre of podcasts.
I’m still trying to get listed in their categories but so far no success despite putting out a good amount of content, IMO.

Not a fan of the new set-up 2/5
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

A neat app but not for a pro podcast 3/5
By Appy Go Lucky guy
Freezes, takes awhile to process the sound and doesn’t tell you what’s happening so you think the clip was lost, difficult to edit... just not something I would use for a real podcast.
Best app for podcasting! 5/5
I’ve tried other platforms but Anchor is the best, by far. They make it super easy to record, add background music and other sound effects. I’m working on my premiere episode and very excited to see how it turns out using all of the tools provided. If you’re a newbie podcaster, Anchor is definitely where you should start.
Love it 5/5
Super easy and user friendly. Best way to start a podcast
Love it! 5/5
I have found anchor support to be extremely helpful and quick to respond to my questions and concerns. Anchor publications my podcast on a number of platforms for me which I find to be super helpful. The app continually improves as updates are regularly available for download. It’s a easy and quick way to create a podcast simply download the app and use my phone to record! Amazing!
Really good thanks 5/5
Really good allows anyone to make a podcast and you can find some interesting subjects all in all I love it
I LOVE ANCHOR!!!🤗😍☺️😊 5/5
By C Will Holla
I’ve been on this app more than anything else for the past two weeks. This has been very different and therapeutic for me. Thanks.
It's awesome! 5/5
So far I only have six episodes posted but it's provided me with everything I ever needed! And it sounds great! No fancy equipment at the moment either.
It’s broken with iOS is voiceover on the iPhone and iPad. 4/5
Hey there, just wanted to say that a couple of versions ago you guys had this working pretty flawless with voiceover what happened? Please fix. It does as people who are totally blind no good.
Love this App!!! 5/5

Amazing I was able to set up my podcast in minutes - it’s fast and convenient without sacrificing quality! 5 Stars
Inspirado Projecto Loves Anchor 5/5
By CEC the Viking
My podcast, Inspirado Projecto, exists thanks to Anchor. Friends/family urged me to make a podcast, but I didn’t want to go through all the trouble of editing stuff and worrying about a professional mic and whatever else information that websites try to make us believe we need, in order to make a podcast. One day my friend sent me the app. I downloaded Anchor immediately and began making podcasts right away. We can simply use the mic on our phones and it sounds great! I’ve also bought a small $8 mic to attach to my phone when Iam podcasting in crowded situations. Anchor is perfect for any “lazy podcaster” who doesn’t want to spend hours trying to edit each episode. Just record some words, add a description and a title (or not), and publish it! Anchor lets us record up to an hour of audio in one sitting. I’ve heard podcasts that make simple ten minute episodes. We can also make segments to glue together into a full episode (my buddy made a 3 hour episode utilizing this method). We can add music from iTunes and sound effects for transitions between segments. There’s also an option to blend in background music with our talking, and even export a one minute segment into a video (great for promotion on Instagram). We can talk to other Anchor users and record conversations for wonderful collaborative experiences. They also offer an “editing” function within the app! Anchor also distributes our episodes to at least 13 podcast apps/directories, which help with gaining more listeners. Some include: iTunes, Spotify, TuneIn, Breaker, HomePod, Podcast Republic and more! All for FREE. I can’t say enough nice stuff about Anchor, which is perfect for musicians, actors, voiceover artists, mechanics, therapists....heck anyone. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to become their own Mobile Radio Show.
Love the updates 5/5
Great app, love the podcasting editing updates such as trim and background music . It would be great if scheduled posting was added to the mobile app just like the desktop app.
Not reliable 1/5
I’ve lost files when recording straight to anchor. The desktop version has recorded minutes of silence, and the ipad app failed to upload another segment. The problem was not internet connection in either case. I will not be recording with anchor anymore.
SportsSpeak Podcast 5/5
Awesome insight from Ruth Stewart! Great guests to come!
Good App... Wish there was an earnings tab. 4/5
I love Anchor. It’s a great way to voice my opinion about the sports world. I just want one thing though... an earnings tab. I would love for my podcasts to be monetized and sponsored. If there was a way I could get paid for using this app, I would use it everyday and upload so many podcasts!!! So please make it happen. I beg of you lol
Dope AF 5/5
By Hunny Goddess
So far I’m loving it! It’s helping me create my dream. Thank you.
Great app 5/5
Great app. Use it all the time to publish my podcast. Sounds good too😀
Help, please 1/5
By Dog Dude
I’m having a problem rearranging my very short recording with two transitions. The instant that I rearrange the audio clip and the transitions, the app shuts down, but doesn’t actually rearrange the order, so I’m stuck. I shut down my iPad and tried again, to no avail. Please advise.
Are you still updata？！ 1/5

Change in audio quality with guests? 3/5
By Sabrina Arancibia
I joined a friend’s podcast and when she published it, the audio was sooo beautiful with the segments with her talking alone. When the segment with me as a guest started the audio got immediately worse (good alone, but compared to the other segments?? Terrible to listen to that change). If there’s a fix to this please let me know
Baia baia 5/5
Para mi que me saco 10 en mi tarea, gracias Anchor t amo bb
Beatiful app 5/5
By son of EH
great get it and start creating content
Ok with me 4/5
First time using this app and I love everything about it
By P Thaddeus Brown
This is an extremely horrible app that constantly glitches and makes the process extremely frustrating. The interface is certainly not user friendly; it makes me wonder if other apps that are not podcast-oriented are more worth my time. I expected more.
Music and multiple accounts 2/5
The music doesn’t import into the podcast from Apple at least and if you’re doing a dual podcast it doesn’t let you log in to two accounts .
Ian & friends 5/5
Great way to get your feet under you. SO simple and easy to use. I’ve recorded podcasts at home, the gym, my car, airport, and anywhere in between!
Amazing App 5/5
You guys offer so much I’m just waitin for the fine print amazing amazing tool
Views or listens 4/5
App needs a way to track others for listens. I want to know if my viewers are using amazon Alexa, car radio, etc to listen to my podcast.
Deprivation of servisces 1/5
By Hunter J. Wilbur
I am not getting the services I’m entitled to get by using this app. My friend has his podcast on all major platforms but I do not, even after clicking on all the proper icons to make it do that. It’s as easy as this: do what you say you’re going to do. Can’t say I’m very impressed right now. Is it really fair that somebody doing almost the exact same thing as me gets more than I do? I’m happy for him but putting in almost the same amount of work, I at least deserve people who don’t use Anchor to hear me.
Best way to start a podcast 5/5
By Lizzie Babe
They give you everything you need to get up and going. Now what will you do with this opportunity?
Dumb idiot 1/5
Every time we try to record it closes after 10-12 seconds
In love with this app 5/5
By Amber Smiles
I’ve always wanted my own podcast but I couldn’t afford all the equipment and software I would have needed. Hell even my laptop is a piece of crap! Lol
So when I found out all I needed was my phone, I jumped onboard. Plus they help me get my podcasts out on other platforms!!! ❤️❤️❤️as I said in the the subject line...I’m in love with this app🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 Check out my podcast, “Professionally Silly” 😉
By Sophlivia Pope.
I love this app. It feels as if you’re at the radio station!
Update lags 3/5
By Porcupine & Banana
A friend and I recently started a podcast and we are excited at how easy this works and the distribution to multiple platforms.
We are hoping to grow and be better thought communicators 🙌🏾
We do however have an issue with the desktop version not updating in real time with the phone. For example, the phone app would say we have 30 listens while the desktop is still showing 20 views. There also is a delay in uploading content, which results in lost audio. I obviously find this quite frustrating.
Otherwise, thanks for the opportunity.
The. Best. App. Ever. (For. Podcasting.) 5/5
Want to podcast but have no idea about editing, hosting, getting it on every platform? Try this app, it does everything but your talking. Love it.
If the app crashes when you try and app audio files just uninstall and reinstall. Thanks for the prompt reply by the Tech team.
Great app, but accessability for the blind needs to be fixed 3/5
I’ve been on Anchor since day one and have absolutely loved this app. I’ve met some amazing people who felt like family and have been very supportive to me. Being able to listen to their posts and reply to them has been phenomenal.
However, as a user who is totally blind, I’ve been noticing accessibility with VoiceOver has gone downhill for months. When version one was out, it was super easy and 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 would be working beautifully. But unfortunately, it barely works with VoiceOver now, and like I said, accessibility has not been fixed for several months. For example, the only thing I’m able to do is record my own broadcasts. I’m on able to do things like replied to other peoples broadcasts, see who’s listened to the ones I’ve recorded, etc.
To the developers of Anchor, if you’re reading this review, I no you’re doing the best you can. But the fact that people like me have not been able to use the app for a long time because of the inaccessibility with that has been extremely frustrating. And it would be greatly appreciated for you to please get all versions in the future fully accessible.
Me 2 months ago: Searching the webs anxiously trying to find a way to publish a podcast on all platforms... on the verge of giving up
Me 2 minutes ago: Relived and just published my first podcast with not even one head scratch!
This easy platform is AMAZING!!!!
my trouble 3/5
im having the hardest time adding ppl, finding ppl etc very difficult time doing this. can someone help me
James ferschweiler’s review 3/5
While the Anchor app is great to use when doing podcasts, I really wish that the anger app would be fully accessible with Apple screen reader (voiceover). I would say on a scale of 1 to 100 I would say the app is about 30% accessible. Even though I am a blind person, I can use anger without voiceover because I have some usable vision. However, if I was a completely blind person, I would probably not be using Anchor again until it became fully accessible for the blind. Hopefully soon this app will become fully accessible for the blind and will stay that way, because we wanted everybody to use this application. We don’t want to see people leaving. So to the Anchor team, please please get accessibility working and thanks.
Great Podcast App 5/5
I wanted to do a podcast but it was kind of difficult understand how to get it done. But, Anchor makes it so easy with a few learning curves. After a couple episodes it’s easy. And they are always updating for the better performance.
