A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.

App Reviews

  • Fresh Music For Everyone

    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!
  • I have some ideas!

    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
  • Good app, 2 issues and expensive shipping

    By Psyfurius
    I like this app, but there are two issues with it. First one is, when I’m listening to music and make a call without pushing the “pause” button, I can still hear the music during the phone call. It would be nice if the music stop or pause while making a phone call. The second issue is, I recently bought my first digital album through Bandcamp using my laptop but for some reason, the iOS App won’t show the album at “My Collection”. After 24 hours, I decided to log out and log in to the App, and when I went to My collection, the album was there. Everything else is working great. BTW, Shipping cost are very expensive. I wanted to buy a vinyl that was $24 and shipping was $29. That’s not fair. (iOS 11.1.2)
  • Great app, but...

    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!
  • Update broke it

    By TheDudeAbided
    LOVE Bandcamp, The only music streaming/DL website that treats artists fairly, and using the app was so convenient, but I use it primarily on an iPad, and latest update broke the ability to resize it to an iPad screen. You hit the 2X button and nothing happens. Strangely, the Artists app is OK. Technically, I should be addressing this issue to support, but the website offers no way to submit a bug report, so here it is. That’s something else you might want to fix. For what it’s worth, I preferred the old version where your collection would appear on the top page. I’m happy to have the feed and all, but nine times out of 10 it’s not the first thing I want when I open this app.
  • Good but needs improvement in and outside the App

    By Raul8222
    It's good on my phone but lacks basic functionality like creating a playlist, doesn't allow me to make purchases either although I'm sure that's some silly Apple restriction. I would give it more stars but I don't like that there's no iPad App so i'm forced to use the browser version which normally would not bother me, except that for some reason it freezes after a song ends and won't play the next one unless I stay put on the page. It's really annoying. Since Bandcamp doesn't even has a basic forum for the fans that support it, this is the only place where I can vent my frustration.
  • Works properly 40%

    By LPAppsSuck
    3 out of every 5 times I play a track or podcast the app will stop playback and then stop and act like I had never listened to that episode before. The latest issue is with a podcast that had a "bandcamp exclusive." The original upload was the same at iTunes and played for 35 mins, but they said the Bandcamp cast would contain an extra 20 mins of material. The next day the correct cast is uploaded and you can see the length has extended to contain the "exclusive" content; but playback quits when it hits the 35 min mark just like it was the iTunes version. I think there should also be an easy way to observe which podcasts I've heard by greying them out a bit.
  • Great App On A Smartphone For Playing Purchased Music

    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.
  • Support Artists not korporations

    By Paw T. Brayke
    If music is important to you, more than just radio background noise, think about supporting the artists as directly as possible. Streaming services (including CrAppel music and Twahtify) literally Pay artists close to nothing. Purchasing a $10 album on EyeToonz pays the artist about $0.99. Bandcamp pays artists 85% of digital sales and 90% of physical merchandise sales. If you can afford to rent movies and buy crap from Starducks, think about paying the artists you love so they can keep making what you like \,,/
  • Great app, too small for iPad

    By Mylgar
    This app is worth 5 stars all day. If you’re trying to manage a band or artist, make sure you download the other app made for that. The display is obviously sized for phones, so it gets scaled up on the iPad. All that means is you get black bars on either side of the display, and the keypad is strangely big. But it’s really not an issue, some people just might be put off by it. If you want to listen to your Bandcamp collection, get this app! It makes it so easy. A+
