Anchor - A Good Alternative to AudioBoom

Anchor.fm is a free podcasting service that I started using about ten months ago. It has steadily added features throughout the year. If you find yourself looking for a replacement for AudioBoom which this week announced the removal of all free accounts, Anchor.fm is a service that you should try.

Here are some highlights of Anchor.fm:

  • Record by simply holding down the record button the Anchor.fm Android or iOS app. 
  • Publish recordings to your Anchor channel or publish directly to iTunes or Google Play. Learn how in this video
  • Have your spoken words automatically transcribed and displayed in a video suitable for posting on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter. See a demonstration in this video
  • Import audio from other sources to use as bumper music. 
  • A "call in" feature lets users speak responses to your podcast (if it is published on an Anchor channel). 
You can find some other alternatives to AudioBoom in this post that I published on Monday.
