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.

So far I'm very pleased with the app; it's fairly easy to set up and record an episode and distribute it. Only thing I find odd is that I got a notification that now there is a feature to remove all background sound so that you can record anywhere by hitting the enhance button, but I can't find it anywhere on the app.

Better for creating than listening. I listen to a favorite podcast on Anchor. There was a discover button and I no longer see it as of today (8/31). It was there on 8/30. Now I can listen to any podcasts as I only have options to record a podcast. Please restore/fix the discovery button or add a new way to find podcasts and listen. Uninstalled and reinstalled twice and still no discover button.
