Each audio post in your Swellcast is up to 5 minutes long (15 min for Premium Swellcasts) and can easily be created by simply using the Swell app. No microphones, fancy desktop software or recording studios are needed. Record and post anytime and from anywhere. And if you need more time, you can extend your post by adding replies to it in 5 minute increments.


Include photos, links and hashtags in each post to make your Swellcast more engaging and provide more context to your listeners.

A suggestion I have is to allow me to personalize my app experience through allowing me to change the color scheme. Also, personal swells that don't have to be about starting a conversation - on your personal page. Maybe a limit of 2 or something. Just to share a thought purely for sake of sharing it. The color scheme as it is makes everything feel unexciting and dull. Still getting 5 stars because I love the concept and I'd like to see more people join the app and for things to further develop.

Wow. I love that days after I join I see the app update has the addition of user-requested features, such as speedier playback (1.5x or 2x speed). I liked the suggesrion when I first heard it in the app and I especially like that the devs are not only attentive to feedback but responsive in acting on it. The whole premise for Swell is unique. I predict if the team stays open to change in the UI, while standing by their core mission, it will be more and more successful. Kudos.
