AudioBop is an app to browse the Internet Archive's Live Music and Audio archives. To browse the archives, tap on one of the several available types of collections. Doing so will display all the sub-collections within that collection. Items in sub-collections can be displayed according to their rating or by the date they were added to the collection. Tap on any item to display the details about that item. Details include the full description of the item, its rating if it has one, the number of downloads, and its running time if available. Since most items are uploaded by users, some items may not have complete details.
Also listed are the actual audio tracks. Tap on one to play it. If the audio format is visible below the track title, tap on it to switch to an alternate audio format if one is available. Usually the smaller the file, the inferior the quality. Larger files will usually sound better, but may require a longer time to load. Since network connections to the internet may vary, some tracks may be available in a variety of formats.
A list of related keywords may also be shown. Tapping on one of these is a shortcut to doing a search for that keyword.
To access the audio archive with AudioBop, you may need to connect to the internet via a Wi-Fi network to stream large audio tracks.
The Internet Archive in no way endorses this product, nor are they associated with Bubble Pop Software in any manner.
