To date, this is not a positive development. From a Bandcamp blog post titled “Every Bandcamp site is now an awesome mobile site,”
All artist sites on Bandcamp now work and look great on mobile. We’ve optimized everything for the smaller screen and touch interface, so your albums look fantastic, fans can browse through your merch store with ease, and the checkout flow is fast and intuitive [...]
Here at the Clef, we found Zero Streaming Problems before the changeover and Only Streaming Problems thereafter. We even suspected auto-pauses every 60 seconds or so. But it sounds like that is just a glitch. Says one commenter:
I have a bug report of sorts for you –
the old version of the mobile-enabled streaming page would continue to play tracks in the background or with the screen off on iOS devices, but with this new version, it seems that the stream stops as soon as the page loses focus, either when a user switches to another app or when the backlight times out.
I don’t know if this is something you can handle from your end or not, but it might need to be looked into.
Stay tuned, MuseMinionsTM. Stay tuned.
