The ways in which we connect and communicate in this age are so vast that you can talk about a plethora of topics in a plethora of ways. Most of which that happens online however, usually lead to misinterpretations of meaning.
Anchor is an app that acts as a 21st century ham radio of sorts, but not quite. The app allows you to be the anchor of your own radio show with a bunch of other people. The app, only available at the apple store, makes global connectivity and global discussions easy by sharing short audio clips in seconds. People will respond to your broadcasts and have the opportunity to share their opinions on these things.
The great thing about this app is that it allows the users to partake in conversations that are important and relevant. The sample Anchor conversation on the site is one that talks about political correctness in the 21st century. A topic that gets talked about so much that at this point it is extremely commonplace.
You get to hear a conversation from both sides of the argument, at the same time you get something that you definitely miss out on if it is on Twitter or a forum type discussion; tone. Tone is so easy to get wrong online, this isn’t the case with Anchor. Cadence and vocal volume can add so much more to the intent of the content of your argument and Anchor sure helps with that.
I don’t have much to complain about when it comes to this app, it is a good-looking app and works great with really good user ratings. Unfortunately, the only complaint that I have, and one that seems to come up very often, is the fact that it is only available for iPhones.
If you’re an outspoken person who wants to partake in an honest conversation without the shouting match that seems to happen while talking on reddit and other sites, then check out Anchor, you’re gonna love it.
