Anchor app reviews

  • Amazingly easy podcast creation! 4/5

    By jdotreach
    I was on Anchor in its early days and liked it, but so glad it evolved into a full podcast creating platform. It’s so easy to make a podcast, music and sound effects are great, listeners can still call in - but my favorite thing is that Anchor makes it soooooo easy to publish to all the major podcast platforms like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, etc. keep up the amazing work, Anchor! That said, there’s a few things I wish Anchor would add or improve on, mainly the audio level. There’s no way to increase the volume of the audio you record, and when you overlay background music it turns down the recorded audio to a point where it’s kind of hard to hear (even when when using a good external mic). It’s minor, and there’s ways to work around it, but I’m hopeful Anchor will continue to improve those audio levels. If you’re thinking of making a podcast but don’t know how, just use this app. It’ll guide you through everything, even monetization when you gain more listeners.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Nbh29
    So easy to make and manage your podcast. The sponsorships are so easy to get and you don’t have to choose which ones choose you because they do it for you.
  • Legit 5/5

    By HallofDiamonds
    So efficient for what I need while driving. The best thing since Snapchat Truly an app genius designed this!
  • Question 4/5

    By Randy The Rebel
    I have been using and playing around with the app and it’s very good. Simple to use, and easy to use. I haven’t made a podcast episode yet because I’m still messing around with it. But, the reason I downloaded it was to possibly make a business out of it as a podcaster. I heard that you guys heavily advertise on podcasters content, meaning we don’t technically “own” our content. Is this true?
  • Amazing!! 5/5

    By juscallmeJr

  • Love the app 4/5

    By Jmull76
    Podcast are easy to make but would love to see more options for intro music for podcast.
  • Best Podcast Distributer app ever 5/5

    By PR Life Coaching (PRLC)
    I’m new to the podcast world but wanted to start one. Street Science 🧬 is now 8 episodes in and one in post production. Anchor works with you and makes you feel like a professional. They help you advertise, promote, and have tools to teach you the process. They’ve answered all of my email questions from support promptly and showed a lot of support. This is hands down the only podcast app I refer people to trying to start a podcast. Can’t wait to see the new features in the next update. Mike
  • Great way to share your podcast 5/5

    By Michael Sian
    This app is the best way to share your Podcasts to other sites that I didn’t even know about and I want thank Anchor very much and maybe this is review isn’t just a review about the app but also a plug to my friend and mine Podcast S.R & M.E Podcast!! So if you take the time check us we would really appreciate it and once again thank you Anchor for being an amazing app! Keep up the awesome work 👍🏼
  • Works but not great 4/5

    By 🤖💀👡🦊🕸
    It's fine, it works. Aside from the record with friends that is. It's annoying though, that they're spending much more time trying to convince you to put ads in your podcast than anything else. I missed the couple of days when there was a payment system similar to Tapas where a listener could choose to support a one podcast, now I can't find that. Who ever is doing their UX should actually try using the app sometime. There's a lot of space for things I don't need and not enough for things I do need. At least you can now just tap the record button like a sane person, but a simple pause and let me flip the page of my script and then record in the same clip button would be great. The app and website are starkly different and while I know they're working on making them the same I just really hope they don't take out anything while merging. Given all the complaints, I wouldn't have a podcast up and running daily without this app, so there is reason to get the app but also reason for them to change some things.
  • Not a review, but a questions... 5/5

    By BaggLady$1B
    Does this app allow you to download on YouTube? If not, is there a way to get it on YT?
  • THE Best way to podcast. 5/5

    By Robb Zipp
    It’s free! It sends your podcasts everywhere! They give me sponsorships and ways for listeners to join. I do wish it was easier for me to separate my different podcasts without having a different account for each one and I wish I could call someone and interview them without them having the app. Hopefully those will come soon since they always make the app better often. Thanks so much, Anchor! You are one of my all time favorite apps!
  • Jack of all 5/5

    By ckirby1992
    Pretty awesome pod cast and Graeme is an awesome speaker. I can’t wait to hear more.
  • Be a media mogul in a minute 5/5

    By tron T
    Well ok, you have to build a following and so on and so forth, but the rest is a breeze. I had a radio show years ago when you actually had to cut and splice actual tape to edit an episode. I distributed the show by recording cassettes of the show and mailing them to radio stations. Yikes! This is better! LOL
  • Easy Set Up! 5/5

    By KimiWOPP
    This is very easy to use and the set up is very user friendly! Thank you!
  • Best/Easiest way to start a Podcast 5/5

    By Ruizd_
    Super easy to use, they help you get into other platforms such as Spotify/Apple all you need to do is continue to upload your content! Now also allowing sponsorships with earning opportunities, no complaints!
  • Simplicity of usage... 4/5

    By whadat
    This is my first time setting up a podcast, I was intimidated at first... overthinking the process, only to find out the ease and consistency that is involved here. I will recommend and endorse the app. Hopefully podcasters will find a home here.
  • Bad customer service 1/5

    By oznation30
    Giving this app 1 star due to the lack of customer service. When you have an issue they give you a blowoff bs answers and say good luck to you.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Lorispeech
    Very easy to use
  • I love My podcast!! 5/5

    By EJ3030
    Anchor is the best app on the market for a starter podcast! I like how it lets me do the easy work by recording and placing different parts where I want them to be, while they do more of the hard stuff which is sending the podcast out to many different platforms! Anchor is hands down the best! This is from Fresh! Check out Fresh podcast on Anchor. 😁
  • Anchor App 5/5

    By Wis Lockman
    It is so easy to setup a podcast with this program.
  • How convenient! 5/5

    By S Aaron
    After almost a year of pondering to start a podcast, I learned about Anchor. I hadn’t started my podcast because of how complicated I thought it would be. Anchor has made the process so simple I can’t believe I’ve waited so long! If you want to podcast, Use Anchor!!
  • Video podcast 4/5

    By Royaltywarrior27
    Hi hello I’m enjoying recording my podcast on this app but I was thinking maybe we can have a update where we can do video podcasts I think that would be a good update.

    So here I go but 5 with my droid trial on the LG 3. I’ll let you know what’s up with the iPhone X o. My second try but 5 stars for now! Thanks Gary!
  • Every thing is good except one important thing... 2/5

    By Gtha_sia
    Your website says that users can now create anchor videos but I don’t see that as an option on the app...
  • Kate’s Korner 5/5

    By sunshine4386
    This app is so awesome! I’ve always wanted to start a podcast but I never knew How. I especially like podcasts because they eliminate the visual portion of an episode. I have been blind since birth and I was worried about finding a Podcasts app that would work for me but this one is totally accessible earning my five star rating!
  • This app is elite 5/5

    By Seekin6th
    A friend told me to try it out and now I have a podcast with sponsors. Download the app and follow the Seek1st Sports | The Seeklot Podcast
  • I Am a Poet 5/5

    By Vennie Kocsis
    I love this app. As a poet and podcaster it had allowed me to streamline to Apple podcasts, which I love. Thanks for keep improving it! Vennie Kocsis
  • Love it! 4/5

    By joshatem06
    I absolutely love this app! I can record from anywhere, either through the app or by other means and then just import the audio. And the new sponsorship feature takes a lot of the stress out of trying to find sponsors. I only wish there was a pc version so I don’t have to use the web version on my computer at home. Will give it 5 stars if and when this changes.
  • One stop shop 5/5

    By MikeBurton1970
    Start your own podcast and make $$ very easy and fun
  • Hate this app 1/5

    By Katerlou1
    You can only export segments of the audio but not the whole episode. Ridiculous and a complete waste of my time.
  • Abandoned Apple CarPlay 2/5

    By The Florida Flash
    Without any notice or explanation they pulled out of CarPlay. Only way I listened. Lame.
  • It’s great 5/5

    By levilikethejeanshannah
    I use it every week! It’s very easy to distribute my podcasts to all the platforms it needs to go!
  • AWESOME!! 4/5

    By Cam_Malik
    I started a podcast and was having trouble interviewing people who weren’t near me but Anchor alleviated all of that!!
  • Really Great App 5/5

    By Selvasiva
    Very quick and Easy
  • Awesome for beginners such as myself 5/5

    By kmw13c
    I had no clue what to do but Anchor walked me through.
  • Find another app to use 1/5

    By nonstable
    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.
  • The best 5/5

    By Dual Podcasts
    Podcasting platform out there.
  • NEEDS an App for computers 4/5

    By Maconmoney22
    This app has been great and easy to use with each upgrade. Being able to call others and record with them has been great! This is a great tool if you have little resources. I can’t seem to figure out why they have not made an app for computers. This would help greatly with my podcast (The Welcome Podcast) and being able to use a true microphone instead of sounding like I’m on the phone with other people. It’s the last step and it would be worth it.

  • Teaching an old girl new tricks 5/5

    By Granny's Wisdom
    I am a grandmother and not so familiar with technology as the younger side. But Anchor has made it so easy even this girl is making podcasts. And people are listening, imagine that! I am thrilled and I have passed the word along.

  • Anchor App 1/5

    By hostCoop
    It’s great for us that want to be in broadcasting, just wish it was easier like before to call your guest. This new one way harder and I missed a few shows due to complications of finding how to edit or add guest- horrible on saving your shoes recorded to laptop via phone
  • Podcast review 5/5

    By chef tommy
    Amazing I set up my podcast with just a few simple clicks and voila I’m a podcaster
  • Episode disappeared 1/5

    By Ashkash
    Just recorded a whole 45 mins of content and the app closed out. Terrible.
  • Anchor 1/5

    By farmpreacher
    I tried to open it after downloading the app. Wouldn’t get past the I want to make a new podcast, I want to listen to new podcast etc. Gave up. I guess that’s why it was free so it take up space on your devices
  • A cool idea but... 2/5

    By mghnhrtmn
    I can’t save anything to my favorites so every time I want to listen to a show I have to search for it. Clicking the star —which you would expect to save it to your favorites — does absolutely nothing. A very frustrating user experience.
