Hey there! Back in February, we launched Anchor for iOS as an easy way for people to record mini-podcasts called waves. Our goal was to put fun, powerful, and universally intuitive audio tools in the hands of everyone and anyone to start lowering the barrier to audio creation. The launch was a blast, thanks in part to the amazing support we received from everyone who discovered us on Product Hunt.

Since then, we've been hard at work building new features, and cultivating an amazing Anchor community. We’ve met, talked to, learned from, laughed with, and collaborated with so many creative people from all over the world who’ve found ways to use our app that we never could have imagined. We’re so thankful and humbled by the support we’ve received from them so far.

We’ve also been busy addressing our #1 user request since day one: an Android app. We always knew that if we were going to build an Android app, we had to do it right, or not do it at all. So we designed the app from the ground up, using principles of Material Design and iterating until we found an experience that felt delightful on our own Android devices. We’ve also been testing the app publicly for a few weeks now through Google’s Early Access program, and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. If you’re an Android user, we hope you’ll take it for a spin and let us know what you think.

Thanks so much for checking out Anchor. If you have any feedback or questions, I’ll be hanging out here all day!

Hi Mike, Great to have this over on android. What're your tips for recording... is it seriously better to just talki into your phone, or might a set of headphones with a mic be a better option?
