  • 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!

    Like other comments. I like the bandcamp desktop site but the app is less desirable. I listen mainly on a tablet. It doesn't give the option for landscape rotation view (which I use for everything). I really don't understand why I can't download my purchases from the app either. I paid for it. I should be able to download from the app.

  • 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.

    Amazing service underwhelming app. Download functionality is not an option and is missing some desktop features that would otherwise be a seamless experience when switching between the two platforms. Can't purchase an artists entire discography from the app, it only appears on the site. Music stops playing when leaving the app or screen is off, what a joke. I already paid for the music, let me enjoy it.

  • 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.

    This app is a shameful front for Bandcamp. Besides lacking the option to download my purchased music, I want to be able to manage my collection and play it just the way I'd like to - That means a decent queue functionality with the ability to "play next" and "add to queue" for both songs and albums. The most basic functionalities you ask of a music player are not present, please give us the app we deserve.

    Minimal effort by dev. There's no intent for URLs, so you can't open a Bandcamp link with it. The search bar doesn't understand Bandcamp URLs, so you have to parse out links yourself and enter the band. And the search appears to not comprehend a band AND a track, and won't find band tracks if you enter both. It's like they threw together a minimal interface and just gave up on the user experience.

  • Good content, broken app Feb 26, 2020

    By Dominohthekm
    I hate leaving reviews but i have to for this app. Im a web developer, i deal with apps for a living. So i know bugs are common and cant be avoided but sometimes theres no excuse and you just need to fix as much as you fan as fast as you can. This is one of those moments. The account activation emails had to be sent four times because all of them errored out when clicked immediately upon receiving. Also the profile image picker is broken, sometimes you can move an image or scale it to fit in the box and sometimes you cant, tried repeatedly with the exact same image every time. Also whatever is in the white frame that represents the boundaries of the profile pic is NOT what will be shown in the profile pic. Its almost always offset downward leaving a large extra space above the top of the image in you profile picture. I love bandcamp for the content it brings, and how it connects you with so many artists, but every experience with the app so far has made me want to throw my phone. Willing to change my review when bugs are fixed.

    Literally all it does is stream the music you own on it in a lower quality than Spotify. No downloads or anything, you need to use the website for that. There's no real reason to use the app as anything more than to just donate, which isn't really what I signed up to do. I'll just keep downloading my FLACs with my web browser I guess, no easy app option sadly.

    I used to love bandcamp. But you guys are turning it into Facebook. It's not facebook. Your high friction thing where you show me every other person who bought something I already have is obnoxious. I get why it's there but without a way to turn that "feature" off in my feed, I will not be buying anything else because it's frustrating as hell to sift through more of those dumb things than album suggestions. I've spent hundreds of dollars on music through Bandcamp. I guess that's over.

  • 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 - I use it all the time. There are only 2 things missing that I think would make it perfect. The first is a cart feature so I can add a bunch of albums to my cart & checkout all at once. The second is I really wish the "you may also like" feature from the desktop site was here too. Other than those 2 complaints, the app is perfect & I highly recommend it

    The only music app that I actually care to use and support with all the support it shows to small hardworking artists. Love the listens cap before needing to purchase the album from the artist, it makes you really appreciate a purchase and the album in the long run compared to paying the streaming apps that skim off the top of the artists. This is what digital music should be and love seeing that physical media is making a resurgance as well to a degree that many artists stock will sell out.

  • Amazing... but one minor thing Apr 6, 2021

    By A music enjoyer
    Frankly Bandcamp has changed my life in a non cliche way. It has allowed me to find music I enjoy and has allowed me to find my tastes outside of the mainstream. It’s also allowed me to appreciate older technologies and has given me huge admiration for the artists that make music on Bandcamp. The UI on my laptop is amazing and I love using it. But on the phone it’s a bit of a problem for me. Personally I wish there was a way to organize all of my music on my phone similar to how it can be organized on the computer. Because while it is only minor, scrolling through all of the music I have can be rather tedious and the filter options provided only do so much. But other than that small issue that is really minor, I love Bandcamp and can’t wait to see what other music I find.

    it gets the job done, I can listen to and purchase music I want. it's just unfortunate that the player component looks very dated and is barebones. it'd probably benefit from an entire revamp, and at least locally stored playlists as a function. otherwise, yeah, it's fine.

  • Awesome, could use some polishing Feb 14, 2021

    By mjmakilla
    I love this app because it allows me to support obscure artists, and allows me to broaden my collection and understanding of music. Aside from this, I feel like a few improvements could be done. The UI is a bit clunky, sometimes it scrolls all the way back to the top of the music feed, also I think accessing genres/sub-genres should be easier, maybe you could go to your profile and select the genre from your following list, or could have a separate icon for it. When you follow a lot of different genres your music feed tends to get a bit cluttered and it’s harder to seamlessly select what you feel like listening to, I feel like a grid system might be better? Overall happy with the app though I love using it.

    Hi longtime user, love the platform, got some feedback. First, album pages on the app don't include the same info as on the website! The blurb about the album is missing, along with who knows what else. Also, a lot of the editorial features found on the website are missing in the app; the albums featured seem to be different from what's on the site, and I'd love to read the journalistic stuff you put out online, all in the same place. Love the elevator music on login screen, and the load animati

  • 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

    I love Bandcamp, but the app is...not my favorite. The lack of a download button, when you are a service that allows the purchase of music, is utterly ridiculous and makes LESS THAN ZERO sense. Everyone's telling you to fix it. Fix it. And the fact that when i'm playing music in the app, as soon as my screen turns off, so does the music. Supremely annoying. Spotify runs just fine without having the screen on and active, why can't this app? Those two things are super frustrating.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    I've been an avid user of the Bandcamp app since the beginning and despite its one flaw, no download button, it's been a great way to manage my purchases and play my media. However, since the latest update, the app crashes immediately upon opening whenever I'm logged in. I've tried deleting and reinstalling, clearing data, etc etc. It works fine if no one is logged in but that sort of defeats the purpose of the app if I can't access any of my stuff. 5 star app until the latest update.
