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.

Was directed to Anchor to listen to a podcast by an ad. It isn't very obvious how to do this as the UI immediately thrusts you into the creatove suite. It would benefit from having a selection screen for create/discover. Once you begin listening to a show, pause will sometimes not allow you to play once more, and your progress would disappear often when you leave and come back.

Not a bad app, me and my friend wanted to start a podcast and this one was the easiest for us to use. However, it won't let us upload our podcast picture we created and it gave us problems when first trying to make it. Plus, you don't get much to work with when editing and it automatically chose our url instead of letting us put our own. Good app, on the right track but there's many issues.
