  1. 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! :)

        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!

      • 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.

        • Native support for music apps besides Spotify

          We should be able to use our native music players per platform, i.e Apple Music, Google Play Music, whatever Windows has, lol, instead of only Spotify for our music services.

            Apple Music is already supported for iOS users. If you’d like support for other specific services (Play Music, Soundcloud, etc) please let us know in the comments and we’ll do our best to integrate them. Thank you!

          • Add iTunes or Spotify Playlists to my station

            Would be great if we could upload an entire iTunes or Spotify playlist into a station, instead of adding one by one manually.

            • Support keywords

              Much like YouTube uses keywords. Anchor could use keywords to help find stations based on keyword niches.

                • Add the ability to scrub waves.

                  Had to listen to the same section of a wave multiple times due to accidental swipe or clicking FF in notification menu in Android, why not scrub to the spot you were at before?

                      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.

                          I'd love to see an Anchor API so we can integrate it with other apps and services!

                            Kinda like an audio blog for the Anchor Team, to keep us updated on what you are working on. I would be very interested.

                            • Add stations to custom lists

                              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.

                                      I'd like to be able to applaud with the tone that closely fits me. It's be cool for a radio host to be able to see stats like how many of each tone applauded them. Or how many happy faces, sad faces, angry faces they received at different times during their broadcast.
