Audio Onboarding

This was the first version of Anchor I documented. As you were onboarded and entered each text field one by one, there would be audio to guide you and tell you what Anchor was about. You could mute it using the icon on the top right.

What's your name? Full names work best, but you do you.

What's your email? You'll need this to login later.

Create a password. Tip: Probably don't make it "password"

Find your friends who are already using Anchor. Connect Facebook

Gotta get those Twitter friends, too. Connect Twitter

You're done! Let's get this party started
