Trash system!

I’m starting to regret taking my business to this app! I stayed up till 12:55am today to edit my 2nd podcast episode, which btw the only way I can actually edit a podcast is by using both the app on my phone and editing it on my computer. Shortly after my new episode was up and I was eager to share it I went to back on the app to clear my library of the clips I recorded. But instead of taking me back to my library it brought me to a new episode page that looked very similar to the library. I started to delete the audio, when all of the sudden I realized what was actually happening. I ended up deleting every piece of audio on all my episodes! All my hard work down the drain just cause the app is terrible! Why didn't take me to the home page or the library where I left off?! Now I have to break it to all my friends I record with that all our work is now gone! I had high hopes for myself starting a podcast show with my friends, but now because of this app idk what my next steps are. This app may look like it has positive reviews, but I assure you once you get on all the flaws will hit you right away. This app also still crashes frequently even after they said they’ll fix it!

Great app but..

This is a great app to get started on creating podcast. My friend and I just got approved for Apple podcasts and pocket cast in a matter of days! The only thing keeping me from giving it a full five star review are the two following problems. The first one, the app needs to include a way to trim unnecessary audio recordings. There has been plenty of times where we are 15-20 mins recording and we get distracted by something and end up recording 2-3 mins off topic and guess what? We have to record again since we can’t trim the audio recording! That is very frustrating. The second problem, whatever the app does it kills my phone’s battery! No joke! Just today we recorded a 11 min episode and my phone went from 86% to 58% that was unbelievable. And before you say it must’ve been something I have background data restricted on all apps with exception of Anchor, Mail, Clash Royale, and Play music. When I launch this app I close out of everything and only laugh this app and I connect to WiFi. Once those two problems are taken care of I will gladly change my ratings!

Is it really this bad?

I’m a bit dumbfounded. You have to hold down on the record button to record, and as soon as you let go with your thumb, it stops recording and go straight to a published now page. It does not allow you to add on to that recording. Another way you can record is by putting the phone up to your ear. Once again when you pull the phone down it starts recording starts trying to publish that podcast. Let’s hope you don’t have to scratch your nose or something. This app sounds so compelling with its meet up with other people with similar interest in the group or joint podcast, but these fundamental basic user issues are beyond my ability to comprehend. I’m sure it’s there somewhere, but I couldn’t even find a delete button to delete my first random scratch audio take. Is there any other app in the world where you have to physically be touching the record button on the screen for it to record? Am I missing something? With the rating of over four stars I’m just really confused.

Developer Response ,

Hi there and sorry for any trouble or confusion here. If you press the record button down and slide your finger up, it will lock the recording into place so you don't need to hold it down. There should be a tip when recording that states that but if it's not showing, let us know so we can get that fixed up! And if you're having any issues at all with deletion, just tap the '...' icon next to the audio in your 'Profile' tab and that will let you delete it. If you have any further trouble just email so we can assist!
