    People spent over 9million dollars on music via Bandcamp last year. Bandcamp is perfect for an up and coming artist; it lets you set the prices for your music and gives fans the option to pay more in order to support your music.

    If you are training for a triathlon, you're going to be spending 100s of hours running, biking and swimming. Use Bandcamp to find new and inspiring music to keep your motivation playlist from getting old.

    It's very difficult to find great music for your Tai-Chi sessions, but now you can play Tai-Chi music right from your phone. Find 30 minute to 1 hour playlists to put you in the right head space.

    If you want 3 hours of salsa and raggaeton music without running into repeats, then streaming a free online playlist is the way to go. Get your party guests up and moving to salsa beats all night long!

    Bandcamp is the perfect platform for indie artists to share their music and connect with their fans. 80 to 85% of the proceeds for all purchases go directly towards the artists. I've used this to get all kind of great new music, including a lot of jazz and swing albums.

  • 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!

    Been using since it's inception and little suprised bandcamp hasn't progressed much since roll out. This complaining about not being able to download the purchase via app...as true as it is, just log in from the url not the app itself is how you do it--also, others complaining about audio drops just need to keep the limited cache, cleared out, for the best performance. I clear my own twice a week, as I do use a lot, and is found in the BC app settings [top right gear symbol]
  • 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.

  • 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.

    i want to love it but... this has to be the worst implementation of a search algorithm i have come across... i have given up on looking up tracks in the catalogue from within the appa and search for "[track] [artist] bandcamp" on google. this needs serious overhauling. i love the concept of the app and i want to use it as my main way of purchasing music. it has great potential and with a few, little tweaks, it could be so much better. - improve search algorithm - improve results display

    For those wondering, the streaming quality on the website is 128kbps. While bandcamp offers TONS of different ways to download the music you've paid for, if you want to hear the music with better quality I do believe you have to download it first. You'll be given the option to select the format upon downloading, I just felt like this information might be useful to some. If anything in my review is innaccurate, please reply and I'll more than happily edit it. Bandcamp rules!
  • 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 happened slowly, but this application has significantly improved to a point where I can definitely recommend it. My main remaining issue is that it doesn't open Bandcamp links. It's frustrating to click a link about a new album on Bandcamp from a message that you're reading inside the app and having the link open in a browser instead of the app.
  • 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.

    so lacking... no grocery cart so you have to purchase one item at a time, unable to purchase discographies from within app. No screen rotation so if you are using a tablet rotate your head 90 degrees or get used to using it in portrait mode only.
  • 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.

    It needs Dark Mode and High Resolution audio via the app, it seems you have to download the flac format via the website to listen to high quality music.

    By simon salas
    Problems persists. Many of the albums I've purchased do not show up when searched in app. When I go to the artists/ albums in concern, they look as if I did not buy them unless I check via website. Sometimes via the website they don't show either (Although, my profile Pic in the support section of these albums is still visible.) If I search through my email receipts I can 'usually' still download, but this is archaic and frustrating for a company that makes this much money to not fix the UI.
  • 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.

    For me the app is not intuitive at all. I fumble with it no matter how many times I use it. Terribly awkward to me. Can't even find the settings. I want to choose my download quality and be able to download direct to SD. Please continue to work on it. Please work on the UI. Love
  • 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
  • Can’t purchase within the app 👎🏾 Mar 15, 2021

    By Soundingon
    I love the premise of this app. Giving independent musicians a platform to sell and promote their music is amazing. What’s even better is for every first Friday of every month, they give 100% revenue to the artists! The big issue I have with this app is that you can’t purchase music within the app. It’s ridiculous. Imagine not being able to purchase music on the iTunes app, but just being able to see what’s available, then having to open your internet browser and go to the iTunes website to purchase the music...? Imagine how much money they’d lose doing that. I would personally purchase so much more music on bandcamp if I could buy it within the app

    Really good app. If I was to amend anything I'd have a play random track feature whether it was your whole collection or just individual album tracks. I tend to purchase the download's on the laptop. But it seems I have to purchase the album's individually whereas on the laptop I can add to basket and purchase in one transaction I've noticed some people say that they don't see their purchases. I've had the problem but I've logged out of the app and logged back in and there are the new purchases.

  • 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.

  • 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!
  • Nice but repeat goes off. Needs ability to dj/ put in daw Apr 18, 2021

    By Future NowHere
    I need to dj my tracks from this app thank you. But more then this, there is no support for horizontal viewing, would love to make playlists, would love for repeat all tracks to be standard setting, would love to see Siri Shortcuts. Digital is the future of buying physical things. I’d love to see uploads in artist app. Thank u for adding download option in this app recently. It’d be cool to play artist videos in this app. Everyone that listen w this and makes music is also a dj, so the ability to mix tracks would be exceptional, and to be able to add to other app instruments like AUM or Audiobus. This would greatly increase functionality and popularity.
  • Apr 24, 2021

    By Floresdilia Martinez
    It's a good app but, I find that it is missing some key features that I enjoy and other music players. Notably it does not have a repeat function if you want to repeat the album or repeat a song and even though it you can download it to your device it does it to device storage and it doesn't give you the option to stored on your SD card. Which is a shame because I keep most if not all of my music on my SD card for offline play.

  • 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

    It functions fine as a music player for your collection or artists you know, but discovery is pathetic. The regular browser site at least gives a small selection (very small, unfortunately) of related music, but the app provides absolutely nothing. The only browsing you can do here is by category. Bandcamp has a treasure trove of music; it is *the* site for independent music and hugely successful in so many ways, but the interested listener is afforded so few ways to sift through these offerings. They have to be sitting on a mountain of listening data that could be developed into a quite nice recommendation engine, but instead we have so little.
  • 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!

    Over the past two days I have had many problems with the app. I think it all stems from purchasing music (specifically Jason Isbell's live album) without having the app first. After many attempts I was able to get the album I paid for. Unless there is an artist I really want to listen to, I don't think I will use Bandcamp in the future.

    This app is a good idea, and works fine for buying things in case you're out and about and something limited edition just dropped. Several issues, however: Push notifications do not go anywhere when pressed. It ends up on a 404 page, essentially. No gift card support Artist messages take a weirdly long time to load. Other suggestions: Let me shuffle through my whole library, maybe even make playlists, and bandcamp will be my only music app. Android auto support would be cool, too.
  • The Bandcamp app has an identity problem Mar 10, 2019

    By dougc84
    Bandcamp. It’s the website where you buy music and support musicians that aren’t Top 40. It’s where you preorder albums by local artists. It’s where you buy merch from some indie band halfway across the world. But, Bandcamp the app. Well... you can’t actually buy music here, even though you can on the mobile version of the app. But you can stream it. But you can’t manage it. Or cache/download it. But you can buy physical media. So, is the app a media player? Because it does an OK job of that. But... it’s certainly not a library manager, so OK is all it gets. And it’s certainly not a store. And discovery is too obstructive to be useful. It’s an app that is convenient enough to see what your library (what you’ve purchased, no playlists or filters or anything) is and play it back. Sounds like a great idea on mobile if you could actually purchase your music there. But, for offline listening, you still need to find a computer, download the tracks, and add them to iTunes. Bandcamp - you guys can do better. I know you can. Define what this app is and what it can do. And let it be that.
  • Great, but crashes Jan 9, 2020

    By dork.factory
    I’ve been meaning to download this for many reasons, but never got the chance until recently. Bandcamp is fantastic in how you can directly support musicians and find music you can’t find elsewhere, but the app has a few problems that are hard for me to overlook: In particular, crashing issues. I prefer listening to my music while my phone is off, but more often then not, the music starts out fine only for the app to suddenly crash and stop playing my music. It might work better if I kept my phone on while listening, but that’s a bit inconvenient for me personally. If the crashing issues are fixed up, though, then I don’t really have many complaints!
  • App is bare minimum of function Dec 4, 2018

    By RTanger
    I love buying albums on Bandcamp but really an starting to hate using the app. The issues with the app become more apparent the larger a collection that’s accrued. This app desperately needs better search, filter, and organization tools. It also needs to have general technical issues straightened out, like the way that it often thinks it’s offline and won’t allow albums to be played until the app is restarted, or is online but can’t seem to load any tracks from a selected album until restarted. Summary: A great music selling service but offering the bare minimum of user experience in all the places it should matter most — organizing and streaming the collection that’s purchased.
  • 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.

    It needs Dark Mode and High Resolution audio via the app, it seems you have to download the flac format via the website to listen to high quality music.

    Problems persists. Many of the albums I've purchased do not show up when searched in app. When I go to the artists/ albums in concern, they look as if I did not buy them unless I check via website. Sometimes via the website they don't show either (Although, my profile Pic in the support section of these albums is still visible.) If I search through my email receipts I can 'usually' still download, but this is archaic and frustrating for a company that makes this much money to not fix the UI.
  • 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
  • Can’t purchase within the app 👎🏾 Mar 15, 2021

    By Soundingon
    I love the premise of this app. Giving independent musicians a platform to sell and promote their music is amazing. What’s even better is for every first Friday of every month, they give 100% revenue to the artists! The big issue I have with this app is that you can’t purchase music within the app. It’s ridiculous. Imagine not being able to purchase music on the iTunes app, but just being able to see what’s available, then having to open your internet browser and go to the iTunes website to purchase the music...? Imagine how much money they’d lose doing that. I would personally purchase so much more music on bandcamp if I could buy it within the app

    so lacking... no grocery cart so you have to purchase one item at a time, unable to purchase discographies from within app. No screen rotation so if you are using a tablet rotate your head 90 degrees or get used to using it in portrait mode only.
  • 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.

    For me the app is not intuitive at all. I fumble with it no matter how many times I use it. Terribly awkward to me. Can't even find the settings. I want to choose my download quality and be able to download direct to SD. Please continue to work on it. Please work on the UI. Love
