How much does it cost to create a listener account for use with the Farcast FM app?

Can I use Farcast FM without creating a Farcast account?
Yes. However, you will find that some of the great features that our app offers are not accessible to you without logging in with an account. Also, your profile (preferences, favorite shows, etc) will not follow you between your devices without logging in with an account.
Can I host my Podcast directly on Farcast?
No. At the present time, Farcast offers a universal directory and apps for Android and iOS. In other words, we help connect you to your listeners but do not do the actual hosting of your podcasts for you.
Do I still list my podcasts on iTunes and other directories or should I switch over to Farcast only?
You can keep doing what you've always been doing. But we do encourage you to let your audience know about the Farcast.FM app. This will provide them with a far better listening experience; allow you to communicate with your audience more easily; and will provide you with better analytics. But of course, create an account and claim your show first so that you can get started.
Can I still use podcast hosts like Libsyn?
Yes. You can use all your old hosts and change nothing of your existing audience. You can continue to upload the exact same audio files to your existing hosting provider.
How many shows can I have on Farcast FM?
Our directory should point to ALL of your shows and related episodes. If you notice anything missing, please login with your Farcast account and let us know what is missing.
What should I do if I can't find my podcast in the Farcast directory?
This is rare. However, if you have searched our directory and are not finding your podcasts, please create a free account and then choose the option to manually add your show information.
