Our lives are but a collection of stories. Swell is an audio platform for telling those stories.

Swell provides a new storytelling prompt every day to inspire you to share a story from your life. No experience is necessary, simply use the built in recorder in the app and record and post a 5 minute story.

Use your Swell stories to share the knowledge, wisdom and emotions from your lived experiences.

Swell has a warm and welcoming community of users who will not only listen to your stories but also reply in their own voice, leading to thoughtful conversations and meaningful engagement..

Swell makes it easy to share your stories online. Simply share the link to your Swellcast and anyone can listen to it on the web, they do not need to download the Swell app to listen.

For listeners, Swell provides an opportunity to listen to interesting stories from all over the world and tune into interesting people.

The newly launched Swell Audio Creator Program allows you to monetize your audio content. Members of the program can charge a monthly subscription fee for access to their premium audio content. This is a great way for podcasters, coaches, authors, experts and creators of all types to conveniently provide high quality content and engagement for a fee, and to grow a loyal subscriber base. Learn more at https://www.swell.life/audio-creator-program.


Each audio post in your Swellcast is up to 5 minutes long (15 min for Premium Swellcasts) and can easily be created by simply using the Swell app. No microphones, fancy desktop software or recording studios are needed. Record and post anytime and from anywhere. And if you need more time, you can extend your post by adding replies to it in 5 minute increments.


Include photos, links and hashtags in each post to make your Swellcast more engaging and provide more context to your listeners.


Each Swellcast is available online at www.swellcast.com/yourusername so people can listen to you without downloading the app.

You can also add your Swellcast to your own website or blog by using two lines of simple HTML embed code. Learn more at https://developers.swellcast.com/


You can customize and export short video clips that can easily be shared on other social platforms to help increase awareness of your Swellcast.


Swell has launched a first of its kind creator program exclusively for audio creators using the Swell app. You can apply to the program in the app or on the Swell website, and if accepted, you will be able to offer paid subscriptions to your premium content.

As part of the program, you will get access to additional features such as longer Swells (record up to 15 minutes, or upload up to 1 hour long), scheduled posts, the Premium Hub with tips and HowTo videos, and optional marketing and promotions support.

A Game Changer

I’ve been using Swell for about a week now, and I absolutely love it. It honestly is a better content format than many of the other social media platforms. Instead of consuming photo and video all day, you get to enter into healthy dialogue and use your voice. This will assist in building a robust and interactive community. I always feel better when I leave the app, and that’s huge. Thanks to the Swell Team for this amazing app.

This app is uplifting!

I am loving Swell! I prefer talking over typing, and usually send voice messages to friends. As I have gotten friends to download this app, now I get to hear their voices too! My college roommates all connected with me on Swell and I LOVE hearing their voices instead of just reading texts. I am hoping to begin a book club soon on Swell and I can’t wait!

Love it!

This app is a great way to connect with people and hear their stories. The new update is amazing and so easy to use. Not only is it visually appealing, but it's also easier to navigate and access! I recommend this app to everyone as it is extremely inclusive and fun to use!
