Just amazing! 👍🏻❤️ but...

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

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.

Developer Response ,

Hi there and we're sorry to hear about your disappointment with any Anchor branding on your podcast. Keep in mind you can remove the post-roll via your Anchor settings now and we do plan on continuing to look into these options and allowing our users alter them as needed. More updates on the way in the future but we appreciate the feedback! We hope to see you continue to use Anchor as we continue to allow more customization and features.

Lack of notifications

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
