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 popularity 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. A list of related terms may also be shown. Tapping on one of these is a shortcut to doing a search for that term.

If you find a particularly interesting item, you can bookmark it for later listening by using the bookmark control in the top-right corner of the Details screen. Switch to the Bookmarks tab to view your bookmarks. Swipe across any bookmark to delete it.


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.

Been looking for an app like this!

1 YEAR UPDATE: After a year of using this app every night I can honestly say I still love it. This is my most heavily used app and living with it for so long know has made me appreciate the stability and little touches. And yes it still works after I shut the phone off. I'd love to see a sleep timer and local media player for my own files added in the next update!

I llove AudioBop so much. It is absolutely the best way to access IA audio. I used it to track and listen to episode of Old Time Radio and AudioBop is my constant companion. Love the interface and bookmarking. Great job, thanks guys!
