  1. Ability to record through your Bluetooth headset

    I want to be able to set my phone down and record while wearing my earpiece so that I don't have to hold anything.

    • Downloading wave as an mp4

      I was able to downloaded my first 2 waves as an mp4 from the app to my iPhone... I did my 3rd wave yesterday and can't seem to do it anymore...

      Is that function still available, and if so what is the process again

      I'm using an iPhone, do I need to change any setting on the phone

      Thanks

        • Oh, if your are thinking about how to make money with this new app . . .

          I recommend the Anchor application work similar to how YouTube works, with regard to funding. And, as a result I would also try to define what I personally feel is the definition of "success" for any station. For me, success is NOT how many applause I get or how many people decide to "subscribe," it is about "standing for" something, on this earth that one believes in, in my personal opinion. :-)

          • Even thought about creating a Spanish language "template?" So, one can chose what language they want their station to be in?

            1. Offer different language options on your app.
            2. Add a function that can translate any language into any other language. For me, I would need this function to translate what is being said on a Spanish speaking Anchor channel to English, even if it is just via captions, for the Asian languages . Does that make sense? I would, of course, research all the potential languages more, if I was going to code in this function.

            HOWEVER, if you are going to add this function, which would help facilitate other world citizens into one on one conversation, I recommend…

            • Make interview calls available for other countries! (Indonesia)

              I'm radio DJ and never been happier to find an app like anchor. I love interviewing people over the phone, and disappointed when i was trying to use the feature.

              Interview calls only available for us numbers only. Sad. Make this happen. Please.

              Thanks

                • Manage Uploaded / Scheduled Content

                  If I upload audio from a desktop, I need a way to manage it. I need to be able to review whats in the queue, edit the time it will be live, rearrange segments, add music segments and interludes.

                  • Appart from Apple Music or Spotify please provide some way to use Creative Commons music, like Jamendo

                    I would love to be able to select one song from Jamendo as a segment in my station, and being CC I don't see any problem with it.

                    • Allow us to see a listing of permanent episodes someone has when listening to their station

                      Basically, if I go to someone's station, I'd like to be able to see their permanent content available as well as their active station. It would be great to be able to check out someone's content like that even when the station is off air so that I know if I want to make it a favorite. It also allows content creators to always have their episodes available to listeners.

                      • Allow us to hide or remove the "suggested" stations from the dial

                        The dial that shows a bunch of suggestions that I don't want to listen to creates a usability problem for me. I'd like to be able to only see the stations in my dial that I added. At least one of the stations that keeps showing up in suggested is possibly offensive to me.

                          I would like for the Anchor app to be a universal iPhone and iPad app so that it works well on an iPad. I do use my iPad for media content sometimes.

                          • I have seen the YouTube tutorial, BUT . . .

                            I still think having a written procedure would be helpful for us "grey hairs," especially if one FIRST starts using Anchor on the web ONLY, without anything, but a flip phone available. It should not take that much time to just write up the basics, and options, and post these on the web version of Anchor.

                            Along those same lines, what about making sure all the options a millennial has on their touch phone for Anchor, are made very clearly available on the "web only" version of Anchor? Why? Because I prefer a flip phone AND there might be others…

                            • Expand desktop functionality (call-ins, skip 15 seconds, etc.)

                              I love the anchor app itself, but some of my listeners use desktop exclusively to listen, and there is no ability to call in using existing audio on desktop. Also, the website version would be better if it had some of the features of the app like skip 15 seconds, applause, and episodes.

                              Thank you!

                                  Allow users to create and upload their own background tracks. You could integrate a tool like Shazam or SoundHound to prevent the use of copyrighted material. This would give musicians an opportunity to showcase their background tracks and share user-submissions across stations.

                                    I know Anchor is new and all, but there is a growing community of anchorists which broadcast in Spanish, and I'm sure that it also happens in other languages as French and German. It'd be nice to be able to specify the language of the podcast when creating the feed, as it is being noticed as "English" in the feed:

                                    <language><![CDATA[en-us]]></language>

                                    • Add a Sandbox that doesn't go directly to your station

                                      We want to do a bunch of interviews at a conference, but we can't necessarily publish them linearly - we may need to do 3 interviews and then go back and edit. It's almost impossible to do that with the current app since you can't rearrange tracks, and it would be great if we could keep a "Sandbox" of "drafts" that didn't go public to the station right away. It's really hard to keep reuploading various tracks, too, so being able to reuse a clip from a favorites area is a similar feature that could help on this front.

                                      • Captions and descriptions might support international (unicode) encodings (issue)

                                        The text seem to be stored in plain ASCII, which causes bad rendering of any caption or description which would use international characters (acutes) or emojis. In the caption, I try to properly write in Spanish (2nd language in the world by number of native speakers) and picture a flag of Spanish for the rest of the users to be aware of my language of speaking. None of them (acutes, emojis) display correctly.

                                          Can you address the abuse that has lead to people hurting each other emotionally and Spiritually on Facebook/Twitter that leads to people harming themselves or each other? If you could "get ahead" on trying to address these issues through the actual app itself, you could maximize the benefit/risk ratio for the Anchor app to the world. Just a thought . . . :-) -Kim/Grace Ann Love station
