Great app!

I honestly love anchor! It’s so easy to use, and I love how you can create podcasts with friends. But, there’s just one issue. I think that the record with friends feature could use a bit of work. Here’s why I say that. I tried to have a friend on my podcast earlier today, and every time I tried to send her a new link, she was unable to join the podcast. We tested it out on her podcast, and I was able to join, but unfortunately, she was unable to join my podcast. So, that’s where I think the record with friends feature needs a bit of work. Otherwise, anchor is an amazing app, just not very accessible when it comes to the record with friends. As much as I hate to say this, I think part of the problem is thatBoth my friend and I are blind, so we have to use VoiceOver, and the record with friends feature just does not seem to be very accessible for some of us who have to use voice over on a daily basis. Love the app so.

Beyond Frustrating

I have been using this app for about a year or so, it worked pretty good up until about 4 months ago. The editing tool seemed to develop a major issue. I would make my cuts, and playback to ensure it was accurate. But after I saved my edits all the cuts are off by a few seconds, which really screws up the audio. Once you save changes there is no going back. I hoped the recent update would fix it but now there is an even bigger problem. I record my podcast in segments and listen back to each one before saving and ensuring it’s uploaded. I make sure this is done before moving on to record my next segment. While this takes forever it has ensured everything is accurate and if any one part gets corrupted I only have to redo one short segment vs the entire podcast. But today, I finished recording the last segment (out of 4) and found that my first two segments suddenly show a failed upload and when I press the reload button it still doesn’t come through. I had already checked 30 minutes before and all previous segments showed completely uploaded and ready to playback. How did are they suddenly not uploaded? Why won’t it reload? I used to recommend this app to everyone but after 4 months of increasing issues I give it one star.
