I like this apps concept. Record a podcast and it does the work for you. The execution, is abysmal. Confusing to navigate ( I have a friend on here and can't find him to add even though I specifically search his name.), clunky, and flat out broken. The record with friends option doesn't work. And it is NOT our internet connection. The link sent doesn't send the other person into the recording. I guess I'll have to find another way to upload.

Pretty good, easy to view the analytics and episode details, though i do wish you would add like audio effects and have the ability to merge spotify songs and audio clips, or just straight up merge two segments together, as well as being able to upload a video from the app, because even though the website is more convienient, its harder to upload videos with and get to. Please add video uploads for mobile! The app needs it. Ps can you make it support png? Ty!

Anchor is a good app for making podcasts, however, for blind people, using the audio recorder is a little bit harder. What it is, is that I can't preview my audio recording. The play button is nowhere to be found, I was wondering where that would be. Anyway, love the app, keep the updates coming, as well as adding accessibility.
