Cool idea getting in it's own way


Such a great idea, small intractable content that's fast to produce and easy to consume. Love the idea. The interface though is just functionally awful. I can never for the life of me find the programs I'm actually subscribed to because the predominant listings are always the apps own productions (or at least the productions they overtly back, like these weird general round-up style programs I have zero interest in). I would love it if the app prioritized the content of the people I actually try to follow, I'm sure as content producers these programs are taking a listenership hit just from this interface alone and that's super frustrating and annoying. Finishing my shows automatically starts a show promoted by the app that I have no interest in whatsoever.

This is a disincentive from frequenting the app and also from ever generating my own content. Such an easy fix though. Hope something changes.

Hey there, thanks so much for the feedback and sorry to hear this has been your experience with the app so far. The home screen of the app should always display your personal favorites (the stations you have subscribed to). If you're seeing stations in there that you don't like, just unfavorite them and they should get out of your way! Similarly, if you're playing stations from your home screen, it should autoplay into the next favorite in the list. If it feels like random stations are being played instead, we'd love to help you troubleshoot this. Please feel free to email us at support@anchor.fm so we can take a closer look! Thanks again; we really appreciate the feedback and look forward to improving this for you.



What an amazing, wonderful creative idea. You are all are so awesome for this. For doing this and having a medium like this. I can’t believe that you have created a way for my voice tolive on. No matter what I do I will be able to yell at my kids or tell my husband how much I love or loved him. No matter what. I will live on forever. And for you to offer it free😳. What a wonderful gem you are😍. If you have the honor of reading this, pat your self on the back. Then pat two more people that work beside you. Tell them Great Job. encourage them to pass it on to three other people. And when the compliment or words of affirmation come back to you, you will know how I feel right now. Spread the Love, Spread the Word, Spread the Voices.

It was easy...


So the versions before 3.0 were fine in terms of uploading music from your desktop, listening to the latest episodes of your favorites, commenting via text and looking at how many claps each segments. But now I don’t see the latest of my favorites or claps per segment. I also miss reposting music or segments I heard on different stations (or haven’t discovered how to do that in this version). Plus I liked how the music would go ahead and publish on my station. I normally don’t plan an episode or playlist mix for each day. Don’t get me wrong I love how I can reorder the segments and add them to previous episodes or compose a new one out of those. I also like how my favorites are all lined up in the Discover section. Lastly, I like seeing more stats. So please bring back said features or make it less complicated.
