  • Access Music Not Available Elsewhere! Oct 30, 2019

    By Biteme1000
    The only reason I even know about this app is bc one of my favorite artists, Beast 1333, is purely underground. His release of a 10 year anniversary album (time flies bc I still remember Mouth of Madness and thinking “Who is this??!) came two nights ago. My local vinyl store was supposed to have the album. Didn’t. The purchase of one album got me access to (what looks like) his ENTIRE discography. If u love music and support individual creators of unique content - this seems to be THE app for that! Not only that but it allows the musician to stay in contact with their fan base if they choose to - which Beast 1333 does regularly and prides himself on. Every music fan should have this!

    Great app for the artist and you can find tons of cool music, but its extremely tedious, which stop me from purchasing more tbh. You can't look up new releases on the discover window, or by genre. It's always best sellers that come up first. Also, its a pain in the ass not having a cart and having to purchase everything on the spot, which again, stops me from buying more music.

  • Great app For Supporting Artists Jan 3, 2018

    By Clurichaun
    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.

    This app is passable. You can search music, play it, buy it, get some notifications etc. But there are frustrating aspects about the app, such as free music can't be searched, sometimes a search takes a long time to return results, if someone's discography is on sale at a discount it's not advertised to you, and the list goes on. Bandcamp is fantastic for musicians and could take on Spotify if they could just get better app developers.

  • Needs Better Search Options Mar 25, 2020

    By ShamanYeho
    Aside from not being able to make purchases from the app (which really, no big deal to just use the site for that), what I struggle to deal with is searching for new music, which I like to do often. The website allows for greater refinement of searches, whereas those options are lacking in the app. Namely, I don’t care what’s popular and best-selling; I’d like to see who’s releasing their first album, who’s experimenting, what are people creating as a means of mental survival (“art is a way of survival” -Yoko Ono). I would prefer to have more freedom to decide how search results are ordered for me. I realize I’m probably in the minority there. Just seems to be a disservice especially to new and experimental artists who aren’t popular enough to be at the top (or even on first pages) of results. Also, would be nice to disable the red notification icon on the Bandcamp Weekly tab, or hide it altogether. Not all of us want it, and we all know that red is used to trigger our brains to feel a sense of urgency. Other than those issues, I’m pleased with the app.

    When I log in I don't see any of the albums in my collection, but I do see the artist that I'm following. So that means there is some sort of syncing happening between the site and the app, but I can't listen to the music (so what's the point?). It has this horribly annoying "elevator" music while you log in, it takes literally 1 minute to log in, it's not intuitive and it's poorly designed. I mean- come on guys, it's 2020, you don't have to think, just learn from other great apps that work.

  • Bandcamp has a poorly designed user interface. Jun 16, 2020

    By Homme Dammn
    Bandcamp is awesome, but the mobile and tablet apps are horrible with a poorly designed user interface. Accessing my collection is not intuitive or easy. If I buy music I want to easily access the music I own and scroll through it by artist, by album, and by song. Right now I have to search for something, click my collection and I can only scroll through something related to the search. I want to be able to scroll through my entire collection. I want to purchase music and merch from the bands I love and the bands that I am discovering, this is why I love Bandcamp. So why not design an app that can enhance this platform and enhance my enjoyment of these artists? This app needs easy scrolling and searching of each person’s collection. One should be able to scroll through artists, albums, and songs. On should also be able to scroll through the order in which the music was purchased. One should also be able to scroll through the order in which the music was released by the artists. And why do some artists have multiple pages? There needs to be well ordered discographies. When I discover a band I want to see everything that they have released. Bandcamp: awesome for the bands, but it just needs to be a little bit better for the fans.

  • LOVE bandcamp, not this app Dec 3, 2018

    By cqmurphy
    I am a bandcamp artist, I would gladly pay a little more to be one of it meant that this could be a viable app in 2018. The inability to buy things is silly. The search is wonky. The inability to store purchases offline means I don’t often use it because I don’t want to eat up data. As an artist, it is increasingly frustrating to point potential fans to bandcamp because it’s interface is so foreign to people that are used to the other streaming services. In terms of desktop, I have the same distribution as most “big name” artists. When it comes to mobile (which is how people are going to attempt to search for me mid show and listen to me on the way home), it’s not super useful. Again: I LOVE bandcamp. I use this app about once a month, as opposed to other services which I use several times daily.

  • Why?! Pushing you to buy too much which is causing bugs Jan 5, 2020

    By Animal buddies 12345678910
    I loved this app, it is a great way to stream and listen to some lesser known songs and albums by my favorite artists. It was working great and the occasional request to buy or support was fine. But it has now gotten to the point when every song I click it reminds me and thats not even the part I mind, because it alerts me I have to click to song again and it gets into a loop and I cant even listen to my song. I would love to support and buy the album but I don't have much money. So... as soon as they fix this issue this app will be 5 stars again but at the moment I cant even use it. I would love to be able to use and enjoy this app again. Please help. Thanks

  • Great App On A Smartphone For Playing Purchased Music Jan 3, 2018

    By KelliConan
    I think there should be a way to search for artists and purchase music through the app on a smartphone, but you can always go to the website on a phone to do that. I would like for the app to have a repeat (one song, entire album) and a shuffle button on the player. It would also be nice to see the lyrics for a song while playing it if the artist uploaded them to the website. Then I think the player would be perfect.

    Great app. When you have been using other music players it can seem a little light on functionality by comparison but then it is designed to be a tool for a purer music experience! The latest update allowing Chromecast is for me overdue and a game changer the gives the platform another life (but my bank account less so 🤣) Overall thanks for the platform

    Lots of interesting music in many diferent categories. Many tracks can be played in completely rather than just 30 second samples. My only complaints are: it doesn't seem to support screen rotation and it plays some rather annoying music when I push the login button.

    Won't show my collection. Verified that my Gmail address is same as purchase email address but still won't show any of my 57 purchased albums. I can still find the albums I own separately by searching and can then play through the app. UPDATE: Collection is showing today, stars upgraded.

    It's good, but the playback widget in notifications should vanish when you stop playing a track, or have a close button or something. The only way to stop playing a track is to pause it, and because it's only paused the app thinks you might want to play it at any moment, even 3 days later, with my phone muted it's still sat there in my notifications waiting for me to hit play again. The only solution seems to be to force close the app, but seriously I don't mind the app being open I just don't want playback controls when I'm not listening to music!

    Good app, even better with the recent addition of Chromecast support. Other features that would make it better are: The ability to purchase artist digital discography bundles from the app. Creating playlists from your music collection. Download button within the app. Cart feature for making multiple purchases at once.

  • Fresh Music For Everyone Jan 28, 2018

    By Whisoseri0us
    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!

    Mostly works well. My major issue is some songs are played starting halfway through even though the display is showing it start from the beginning. It's always the same songs that do this and I can't determine why and restarting the app or my phone still doesn't get them to start from the beginning.

  • I have some ideas! Sep 30, 2018

    By BeeBopaTop
    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

  • Great app, but... May 21, 2018

    By Magnavox1972
    If it weren’t a Bandcamp app I’d give it a lower score. I love Bandcamp and have used the app as a method to access the music for a long time. However I have recently been experiencing strange audio glitches, regardless of if I am on data or wifi. These glitches include random skipping of audio like a scratched cd as well as the audio seemingly going out of sync with itself, and only when the screen is turned off. Once I turn on the screen the problem fixes itself, until the next time I turn off the screen. Otherwise the app is very easy to use, and a fantastic way to find new artists. Rarely do I go looking around on the Bandcamp app and not find something to put on my wishlist. That said, please fix these problems in the next update!

  • Great service, bad app Mar 17, 2018

    By pkgoode
    Love BC and would like to make it my go-to place for buying and listening. Unfortunately, neither the mobile device or the desktop is geared to managing a large collection. BC claims to have some sorting features, but they are undiscoverable (by me, anyway). As a result, I’m stuck with scrolling through a 200+ album collection. Worse, it is difficult to change a password from the mobile apps — the link never arrives or BC simply won’t allow a change. It would be one thing if the app stayed sync’d to the desktop, but it doesn’t—too often, it doesn’t recognize a password that I know is correct. Finally, their support is poor: They may get back to you in a day or two, they may not. No chat, no ticket number, no phone support. BC is a great, necessary service, but I can’t justifying buying more from them until they offer a UI that allows management of large collections and until I can reliably access the app.
