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.

Great app For Supporting Artists
Pretty sweet deal. I can buy piles of music from Bandcamp and support the artists I like, plus access an abundance of music wherever I am without having to trade out Mp3s off of my iPhone 8 because of space issues. I can also listen to songs off my wish list as well, at the artist's discretion which is very cool.
The ability to be able to search all of Bandcamp for artists, songs and add to the wish list from the app is awesome and very convenient. Love the fact I can access my wish list now and be able to stream whatever songs I like instead of being limited to a featured track. Beyond the fact one cannot purchase from the app, I would say it does everything now I would normally have to do from the website. My only two big complaints are now it is mixing my suggested artists releases with the people I follow so I may have to ditch them because I don’t have all day searching for my artists. Also, isn’t it time for a real iPad app?? Other than those issues I like now getting messages from the artists about new releases or whatever.
Fresh Music For Everyone
This is the first app I’ve cared to review ever. For those of you looking for new music from underground, independent, or popular, whether your taste is hip-hop, rock, or electronic, this is the app for you. To me it’s great because there’s such an enormous and fresh selection, and it for the most part is free! Best selling artists are constantly changing, there’s always someone new to listen to.
The only reason I give four stars, is because I’d like to see more promotion of the lesser selling independent artists, which is hard to find. Also because, I add a lot of music to my wishlist on here, and it gets significantly harder to find. I just hope they end up organising that.
It is an amazing music app otherwise, highly recommended. Good job guys!
I have some ideas!
The app just feels like the website for a shop. It isn’t easy to search for music unless you know their exact name. It doesn’t make it easy to really dive into a genre or find artists similar to artists you like.
I suggest having a way for people to search for local music. Make it easier to be a musician on bandcamp. I have a profile as a musician and i cannot connect to fans, search for similar music, get news out there, have a listener profile that is affiliated with my band (at least i cannot figure out how to do that yet!) and I cannot connect with other bands and musicians on this app. Please help and please make it more than just a music store. Because it seems like it should be a community, yet i can’t figure out how to make it work that way... thanks
