Best Apps and Services for Building a Successful Podcast in 2022

Play episode

For every struggling facet by the human race, there is a service provider building a handy solution. Creating a successful podcasting business is one of such exciting but daunting points for many podcasters.

Fortunately, a handful of podcast service providers and applications have popped up in recent years. Making the podcasting process a breeze.

However, opting for the right podcasting service is one of the most crucial decisions and investments you’ll make into your podcast business.

In this article, we won’t cover fully-featured podcast software, such as Audacity or Audition. We have focused instead on apps and services designed not only to help you record, edit, and publish a podcast easily but also to add excitement to your podcasting journey.

But, in the haze what are your options if you are looking for the best podcast services or apps? And which one is the best fit for you? Keep reading and find out for yourself…..

Best Podcast Applications


Podbean app

The PodBean app allows users to record content, add sound effects, and either use music from the extensive library or import their own.

During live recording, you can pause and re-start recording the show at any point. You can record co-hosts, guests, and even take live listener calls with PodBean.

If you’re editing your audio, the application enables you to top and tail it, but you can’t edit the content internally.

Since Podbean is a media host, you can publish directly to their platform once you have created your episode, or you can download the file to use elsewhere.

App Type: Desktop or Mobile

Pricing: Using the app is free, but you will be limited in terms of storage and bandwidth. The paid tiers begin at $9 per month and include more advanced options and higher storage.

Best For: Podbean might be the ideal choice if you want to host your show’s media on it. Besides the monetization and premium content options, they have a lot of other cool features.


Anchor podcasting

Anchor, owned by Spotify, is a popular podcast maker app among those looking to test the waters. Like the other apps on this list, Anchor makes it very easy to launch a podcast. It also allows you to publish directly to their platform as a media host.

One of their unique selling points is their ability to play Spotify music within their episodes. But, there are some caveats to this – your music show will only be available within Spotify, and all tracks are inserted to prevent them from being shortened. However, it’s still a great feature for aspiring DJs.

The editing tools in Anchor are functional but clunky. The content on Spreaker and Podbean cannot be edited internally, but you can arrange clips together to create segmented episodes. You can also mix music and transitions into the episode if you’re okay with one-take recordings. So if you’re thinking of creating a nice, media-rich episode, Anchor could be the app for you.

App Type: Browser or Mobile

Price: Free

Best For: Hobbyists who don’t want to spend any money right now. Or you’re going to start a show with a “let’s just see how it all plays out” approch. Or, if you are planning to run a (Spotify only) music show.

Spreaker Studio

Another top platform for podcasters is Spreaker, which hosts content and monetizes it. The Spreaker Studio app is considered to be one of the best tools for podcasters.

Unlike an online radio station, it is available as a desktop or mobile app, and it allows you to go live and engage with your listeners in real-time through its chat feature.

In order to record episodes offline, select ‘Offline Mode’ and then publish them manually once you’re satisfied with the quality of the recording.

Effects and clips can also be played as you go, similarly to PodBean. With Spreaker Studio, you can edit your recordings by truncating or trimming them before uploading.

In addition to recording live shows, Spreaker is a powerful “live production” tool, which lets you create media-rich episodes as the DJ. It’s really cool to play the music as you record and to mix in listener calls, effects, and more. Mic controls and an “auto-ducking” feature, which lowers the volume of the music bed when you speak, are included in the desktop and mobile versions.

App Type: Desktop or Mobile

Price: You can start for free, but the session duration and storage are limited. The paid tier offers more options and starts at $5.99 a month.

Best For: You’d like to do live shows with audience participation, as well as podcasts on the go from your smartphone.
