The Bandcamp app gives you instant, unlimited streaming access to your Bandcamp purchases, lets you explore a vast catalog of music by artists from every corner of the globe, and opens your ears to the extraordinary with our radio show, the Bandcamp Weekly.
Thirty Helens agree that the newest Bandcamp app is terrific. A new messages tab unifies communications from any artists you follow or subscribe to, and the music feed smartly aggregates new releases with the activity of the fans and genres you follow. We’ve also revamped the now playing controls so that they stay out of your way but are easily summoned when you need them, even without shouting “Accio Player.” Additionally, the collection sort controls are more noticeable now (did you even know we had those?), and your settings screen has new bits and bobs that give you total control over the things you receive push notifications and emails about.
Ratings and Reviews
Great for those who want to keep there music library.
As good as Apple Music is, when I’m using it I find myself missing my iPod. If I don’t have cash in my account and it expires I suddenly find myself music-less. If I’m on a train with a bad connection, music goes again. And more generally, I like my music collection being a permanent set of files on my computer. Band camp is solving this problem for me.
I listen to an album a few times for free with the Bandcamp app. If I like it I buy it (usually for cheaper then iTunes) then I download the files and load them into Swansian for the Mac (an app that is basically styled after the old versions of iTunes before it got bloated and confusing), then continue to listen to it on the Bandcamp app where it seems to stay downloaded a lot more reliably then Apple Music.
The music selection is a lot better then you might expect. Plenty of big artists on there and a ton of smaller artists to discover along the way.
Minor feature requests for the Bandcamp app... a manual download button/indicator if I want to load up on songs before a trip.
Some music app style list views for selecting songs. As I plan on expanding my collection quite a bit!
Keep up the good work guys!
For all your musical needs
You enjoy buying music in all it’s formats. You welcome the chance to interact with the artists who’s music you love. Then Bandcamp is the site for you. You can browse, add to your collection and create a wish list. The site is excellent and very very informative, whatever your genre. Thank you Bandcamp. My music vista has certainly been widened.
Great on iPhone not on iPad.
The app works great on the iPhone, I have no issues there. However on the iPad (at least the 9.7 Pro in my case) it does not display full screen and does not work in landscape. This really needs to change in the next update or at least make a separate version for iPad users.
