Discollector is an application to create and manage your music collection. It uses the very popular (and free!) Discogs service to store your collection data and to search and retrieve exhaustive album information to add to your collection. It is the easiest way to manage your Discogs collections on-the-go!
Discollector allows you to keep your collection with you without a connection to the internet. After your initial load, you can browse without a connection.
Discollector will allow you to add to your Discogs collection using an integrated bar code scanner. This will make adding your collection to Discogs quick and easy!
Discollector organizes your collection using a streamlined interface that's perfect for the iPhone / iPod Touch.
Batch information loading:
After downloading your collection, you can front-load all of the details of the items and their cover art thumbnails for quicker data retrieval. If you don't want to do this, you don't have to. This is handy for cellular data connections because you only load what you need.
Discollector is aware of all of the data from your collection, including folders, custom fields, and ratings.
Take your wish list and collection with you:
Don't you hate it when you go to a record store, and don't have quick access to your Discogs wishlist? Now you will, and you can add while you are there using the release search and/or bar code scanner. Having your collection in your pocket can also help you avoid buying duplicate copies of an album.
Print / email your catalog:
Discollector will print your catalog to a compatible AirPrint printer. If you want to send it to somebody, you can share a PDF copy as well!
Syncs with changes made on the Discogs web site:
Any changes you make on the Discogs website will appear in Discogs by simply pressing the "refresh" button. Anything that was removed will be removed, and anything that was added will be added.
If you have multiple user accounts on Discogs, that's OK. You can add all of your accounts to Discollector, and easily switch between them.
Backup / Restore / Sync Images:
Support for backing up your database and image sync using Dropbox.
What's New in Version 3.1.0
•Version 3.1.0 requires iOS 7 or above.
•All network requests with Discogs use their new HTTPS endpoints for enhanced security
•Fixed bug when linking Discollector to Discogs. Some users had issues proceeding past the “Thank You” screen on some devices.
•Fixed bug where images would delete when refreshing a folder that was added to Discollector a long time ago. This was caused by Discogs updating the unique identifier for a release in a folder to a new value. Because of this, Discollector believed it was a new addition to the folder and would treat it as such. The new functionality looks for existing instances of that release and pulls the images from it so that you don’t have to find and add the images to the release again. After refreshing the content, you may want to also load missing album details, as those will be lost locally from the items that had their unique identifier changed because of the refresh.
•Fixed crash when setting format in the search screen and then switching between other fields on iOS 8
•Removed “My Fields” for Wishlist items. These fields are not settable on the Wishlist.
•Fixed average pricing not being shown.
•Fixed Discogs handling of new Genres / Styles
•When getting missing or refreshing album details, added retry logic so that the process won’t stop on short network errors
I really appreciate this app. It's great for looking up albums and many of the albums I scan show up on Discogs. Very help interface. I also appreciate the updates that allow us to review albums on the website. One thing I would look for in future updates is something that allows me to be logged in over time. Each time I go to use this app, I feel like I have to log in.
Good, but could be so much more!
Nice app for browsing my collection while digging in bins. Artwork from Discogs should show up automatically though! This is a big negative. Also the ability to search Discogs website through the App is a must! I want to know what the going price and details of a LP I am interested in when digging in bins. Add these features and this would be an all in one awesome app! Good start, but hopefully this app progresses!
Keeps my record collection organized beautifully. Syncs with discogs with one touch of a button. Gives the average pricing for each of your records. It's great and helps me easily log my records or search through my collection.
