  • Favorites?? 1/5

    By Under-lock-n-key
    For some reason, my favorites will not save. I have updated and I’m still having the same issue. It makes the ring sound like it has excepted the new favorite, but doesn't save. When playing the episode and pushing the favorite star, it crashes. Please fix. Update can’t get to favorites period. FIX THIS immediately!
  • Mediocre App Got Worse 1/5

    By DZO.50
    Recent update removed the “Discover” functionality. Can’t get to “Favorites” without that. Can’t leave voicemails from the app anymore. Deep linking (clicking on a podcast’s URL) doesn’t work… Simply put - really disappointed they didn’t even think through some basics with this update 👎
  • Great game!!! 5/5

  • I choose Anchor 5/5

    By SpeakLife with Todd Streets
    This has been great figuring out what my brand image is developing ideas arranging content doing interviews having a chance to make an impact with positivity and thought provoking conversation. I look forward to the second half of this year any many more. I’d like to thank the Anchor family for this platform because it makes it easy for me to create content without a bunch of expenses just the Anchor app. I give Anchor a 10 of 10 for the platform’s functionality innovation and opportunity to be hard on my terms.
  • Thankful for Anchor 5/5

    By pleasing2630
    Anchored has given me a platform to do a podcast and become an Ambassador of theirs, through the many listeners who have been returning to listen and be encouraged. Hopefully more episodes will have more listeners tuning in. This is Audrey of DriaAEncourage coming to you with encouraging words
  • Very Impressive 5/5

    By Non Creationist
    This podcast making app gets the job DONE!! It’s user friendly, straight forward. And the best part is how it pushes your episodes out to all the big platforms for you. Though that does take some time to happen initially. But once a platform takes the podcast the episodes roll out smoothly after that.

  • Blood-sucking thieves 1/5

    By SR244
    They charge $5 every month without sending me any confirmation. I don’t use this app nor any of its services and yet I have no way to cancel and have to dispute the transaction with my credit card company every month.
  • Volume goes up and down 3/5

    By TBWB
    I am using this app to record a podcast. I do this podcast with another person so I text the other person the link to join. Every time we record an episode the volume on playback goes up and down all throughout the episode. We make sure we are talking into our mics and not moving our heads and it still happens. I have to spend 12+ hours editing to boost volume throughout the episode. Why does it do that? I know Zoom has a feature to lower other voices when someone else starts speaking but I don’t think you should have that on a podcast recording app. Help!
  • Great job… 5/5

    By Cee D. Truth
    Looking forward to the podcast!
  • Thankful 5/5

    By Nitreese
    As of this summer I am someone who went from listening to all my favorite podcasts to now creating my very own called Prayer Warrior Woman, my Goal and Mission Share Christ and Love people… Anchor is such a blessing I found out about it in 2017 from Christian Singer Jamie Grace and from that moment I knew one day I’ll be able to share my heart with all who desires a relationship and life with Jesus!!! What I truly love about this app is it’s so simple and easy to use, literally anyone can do this and what stands out to me completely is It’s FREE like Wow how generous right now the only other place my show can be located is on Spotify but that’s okay God Provides the Increase My Heart is to Win Souls for the Kingdom and With anchor God has given me that chance Thank You keep up the amazing work! To those who are afraid just like Joyce Meyer said Do It Afraid which is an amazing Book check it out!!!
  • Easy Breezy 5/5

    By Theresa2110
    I’ve had so much fun creating my podcast “Messages that Matter with Theresa” due to the pure ease of this APP. Well done! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
  • Easiest way to podcast…ever! 5/5

    By Frank in Cape Coral
    Thank you, Anchor!
  • Wow! Is this really free! 5/5

    By Dahmort
    All I can say is wow! I have been trying a number of the paid Podcast recording services and apps and none of them work as efficiently and flawlessly as this one. I tried Podcastle and it completely screwed up 15 minutes of my audio so now I have to find a way to re-create it or re-do that part. I also tried squadcastle and that user interface is so confusing that I feel like I need a tech degree just to get around the page. This app is so minimalist and easy to use that it almost seems too good to be true. But when I couldn’t get one of those other recording services to work, I resorted to this as a last ditch effort. Man was I pleasantly surprised! The audio came out very well balanced with very minimal background noise, even before I made any adjustments. this will be my app of choice from now on
  • Love the App 5/5

    By bigmel44
    I’ve been wanting to start a podcast for a while. I seen the app and learned how it’s so easy to access everything. I’ve been doing my podcast for almost a year now. I’m very close at my podcast being monetized! This experience is exciting and I appreciate how Anchor help make my idea come to life.
  • Podcasting 5/5

    By J.Peeps
    Anchor.Fm is a true blessing to the podcast community. It allows people to have a voice and speak freely. I’m glad I was introduced to this platform, it allowed me to express myself to the world. I’m going continue podcasting as long as anchor keeps everything simple.
  • Can not be easier 5/5

    By The True Tsunami
    I heard about this app through listening to a podcaster that mentioned they use anchor. They talked about how easy it was to use and start a podcast with. I trust what they talk about and I have been wanting to get into podcasting however was 100% clueless on how or where to get started. Enter Anchor!! It was/is so very easy to use and now I am in the world of podcasting! Thanks for having such a great user friendly app!
  • Anonymous 5/5

    By feyiset123
    A very interesting podcast
  • Super glitchy and non intuitive 1/5

    By HGSale
    The app crashes every time I try to add music to a trailer episode, and can’t upload existing audio to to make a trailer if it’s more than one clip, but also can’t download an “episode” as one single clip. So since it crashed every time I tried to make a trailer with music, I tried making a normal episode only to discover I could mark that as the trailer before publishing. That would have been good to know. BUT, there’s no way to add music underneath the track, only as an addition. All in all very limited and took ages to figure out and still haven’t been able to accomplish my objective, even after tolerating days of crashes and updates and installing and uninstalling.

    I am a stay-at- home wife & mother of 6. I have always been a talker☺️ most of the time people can’t get a word in edgewise. I am thankful for this app. It’s very easy to use, I would recommend this to all my friends & family. Thank you again for giving me an outlet for the thoughts held in my head. This app makes a novice seem like seasoned professional (that you secretly know you are, life has been your school). Come on, get the app & tweach others what you know & love.

  • Great opportunity for person’s to learn and grow 5/5

    By N Vee
    Thank you .
  • Increase monetizing 3/5

    By The Grand Chandellor
    While the app is good and I’ve grown so much from this platform, I always wondered why we only earn 10 cents per episode which doesn’t sit right with me, especially if this our second form of income etc. Why can’t every episode be a dollar per episode? (That’s not taking from anyone and everyone would be getting provided more income.) That would increase activity on all artists on here and the editing tools need to be adjusted. I don’t want to redo a whole episode if I only wanted to take out a small part of a segment I recorded.
  • Horrible company to subscribe to and filled with fraud. 1/5

    By Dune3j
    Anchor is a horrible company that has been making unauthorized charges to my credit card since March 2022. I have tried reaching by email unsuccessfully and notified my card issuer about the costs. The same company recently started charging my debit card, and I have no idea how they did that either. Whatever you do, don’t subscribe to this company directly; they are fleecing customers that don’t want their services.

    Anchor launches you right into the Spotify platform and it’s so cool. As a podcaster I enjoy the free platform it gives me to feel and be just like the most professional podcasters out there in Spotify, instantly and for free! The quality is great too!

  • It’d be great if it was available for laptops 3/5

    By mts_life
    So as of writing today I got a MacBook Pro and to my surprise the anchor app is not available on the MacBook App Store which is a major oversight and as someone who uses it to record and was hoping to send a message from my laptop to my friend the next time we record this is a problem and I hope that this is resolved in the future and by that I mean ASAP!

    I love anchor app
  • Why I am such a happy camper with Anchor podcast 5/5

    By tris Magistus
    I started a podcast with anchor during Trumpy The Clown’s First impeachment process, immediately after listening to Michael Moore’s podcast, rumble, in which he recommended it, and said that it only took five minutes to get started! Michael Moore wasright, and I have been extremely satisfied with anchor in the year or two that I have been podcasting. I have recorded several seasons of material, and my show has evolved from being current events commentary, to a comedy/interview podcast. I’ve changed the name several times, from #STICKITTOTHEMAN! Show, w/#Trista4SheriffSenateGov&Prez! Then. #AFROSOULSISTATRISTA inspired byThe #BLM, #BlackExcellence, #BlackHistoryMonth,#Afrobeat, #FelaKuti & #Kingshilohsoundsystem,In particular. As a journalist/writer, I have used this platform as a means to ‘write’ a series of literary radio plays, showing a slice of life in modernday America amid #TrumpVirus, allowing me to ‘spread my wings,’ as it were, as a commentator. Now, after the season called #THATSWHATUP! Show, ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL w/#TRISTA4GOVERNATOR! I am focusing on #ComedyAs a priority; and arranging to host shows with #KAMP, student radio at the University of Arizona; and #KPYT, Pascua Yaqui tribal radio here in #Tucson, #Arizona. I’m also applying to be a @thedailyshow correspondent for @trevornoah, perhaps the first foreign correspondent for the daily show? Besides the freedom of being able to swear I like a sailor if I feel like it (It’s my podcast/and I’ll f*****+ swear if I want to!)– which would get me banned from every other platform on the Internet – so I am very grateful and thankful to anchor for providing me with the only space in America where there still is free speech! Also, I feel like anchor is the only place where I can freely express myself, and my opinions, without being harassed by Russian Trump trolls! Currently, I am using all major social media apps, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, to lobby on behalf of the public’s best interest. This is a tumultuous time in American politics, and anchor is the perfect launchpad for women and minorities, liberal voices, which are not heard in today’s rabid, right wing fascistic environment. I have invited Mary L Trump, Michael Cohen, Al Franken and others to be interviewed on my podcast.So far, I have heard nothing, but one day, maybe I will get a big fish on my show, get 1 million subscribers, and liveLike a kingoff of myPodcasting skills! :) Here are a few aspects that I appreciate in particular: First of all, the analytics are very helpful to understanding what works and what doesn’t with podcasting. Second, I’m very happy indeed with the way that my podcast is automatically distributed to all the other platforms, Spotify, Apple et cetera et cetera. so far I have only MadeA few bugs, but hey, when I get 1 million subscribers, that will all change!
