What it is: A social network for audio messages
Voice interactions are making a comeback -- at least that's what the minds behind Anchor are selling us on. The audio-based social network looks to diversify the way we communicate on our smartphones by instantly broadcasting short audio clips to spark conversations with a global audience. View it as mini podcasts that are shareable across multiple messaging services (iMessage, Facebook, Twitter, SMS).
