Latest update has absolutely destroyed this app for me. The "enhance sound" button is ridiculously useless, it actually ruins the sound completely, I have licensed music playing in the background and since the latest update it sounds as if its under water. When I record and say I want to save a short clip and record again I literally have to close the app, reopen it, then redownload the recording and add it to the episode. Why oh why fix what ain't broke? the app used to be perfect smh

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.

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.
