  1. Make Episodes a feature available to all Stations

    Episodes is a great and important feature of Anchor in managing the content of a station and more importantly provides a Persistence, or Archiving mechanism.

    Currently Episodes seem to be available only to a select number of stations. I am not sure if this is the case since Episodes are still in Beta and given to a subset of stations for testing, or intended to selective in the future as well.

    I strongly believe that Episodes should be made available to all stations and should not separate stations into two classes in which one class has more features available to…

    • re-order segments by dragging and dropping.

      Sometimes I echo or create segments or even post call-ins and then later think it would be better in a different order. So instead of having to delete everything and find all the things you want to post again in a different order, being able to edit your stations list would be super helpful! :)

      • Provide a Cursor to move the listening point of a segment

        This feature was available in V1 and it's inclusion in V2 can help speed up the listening to a station/segment.

        While a segment is playing provide a Cursor which I can move to arbitrary points within the segment so that I can move forward when I want to skip ahead the content I'm currently listening to, and more importantly allows me to scroll backwards if I missed or could not hear clearly what was said. with the current implementation my only choice is to hear the full segment again, whereas I may be interested to only listen to selected parts…

          Not just upload clips from the computer, but literally record in the website.

          • Have a favorited number

            Basically have a function where you can see how many people have favorited your station, even if it is just viewable by the person who runs the station.

            • Support umlaut in title

              As a german anchor i would like to be able to have support for umlaut.
              Currently the ö ä ü look super ugly in the description, as they are beeing shown as something like Br/213tchen instead of "Brötchen".
              Thanks!

              • create a custom URL for our station

                It would be cool to choose a username for the station and it'll make it a little easier to share your station with others.

                • Ability to listen on Chrome Cast

                  It would be great if I could listen to my anchor channels on the TV while I'm doing my chores.

                  The TV has the best speakers in most houses so why not utilise then with Chromecast (or airplay).

                      We’d like to better support multiple accounts or give you a way to run multiple stations from a single account. For now, the best way to run multiple stations is to create a different Anchor account for each station. Each account will need its own unique email address (or social login) to sign up. Note that you can use the gmail + trick, ie you could have 3 accounts with the following “unique” email addresses:
                      - me@gmail.com
                      - me+2@gmail.com
                      - me+another@gmail.com

                      The emails will all go to your primary “me@gmail.com” account, but our system will register them as separate signups. We hope this helps!

                    • A Drafts folder

                      The phone interviews have a drafts stage. why cant all the other recordings. this way i could record a bunch of things as they come to me and decide the order to post them later

                        • Pinned segment

                          I think it would be cool to have a pinned segment at the top of my station that only new listeners would hear. It would be a way to introduce my station and what I like to talk about and what music I like to play. Or perhaps it could be embedded in the profile and people can listen to that as a way to hear an introduction to the station. Let me know what you think.

                          • Show Us How Long Segments Are

                            It would be very helpful to see how long each segment is before it plays. We had visual cues on Anchor v1 but I think it would be even better to know specifically with a time.

                            Let us know how long it's going to take to listen. Is it a 1 min segment or 5? This would make Anchor much more user-friendly and give us the ability to come back if it's a long segment and we're unable to listen.

                                Make all entries in the Leaderboard viewable, by scrolling or any other mechanism which allows me to see all the names and rankings on the Leaderboard. What is the reasoning behind showing only the top 20 entries?

                                    It would be nice to add stations to custom lists, so that we can listen to updates only from those stations, rather than all favourites. For example if I want to only listen to the music related stations I can't do this right now - I should also go through the news-related ones, if I'm following such.

                                    • Privacy Options

                                      Being able to set if you want a certain segment to be public, or for just the people that have your station favorited would be amazing! I think this also might be a good way to get more people to join the app because the incentive would to be able to hear content, but only if they're logged in or something.

                                      Maybe even the ability to create a group and only they'll be able to hear certain things would be fabulous too! :) Love the app!!!

                                          Give each station a small one-page website with archived segments and today's segments viewable.

                                            We are currently beta testing a feature called Epsiodes on IOS that would allow other users to see your stations previous segments. Hopefully, this will be rolled out soon! As for a web page for each station, you can log into anchor.fm, click on your station, and use that URL as a personal web page of your station.
