Vinyl is the perfect app for record collectors, the following features should convince you of that fact.
This is where you store all the records you currently own. From the search tab use the artist, album title or catalog number to find records. Tap into a record and use the plus button in the top right to add them to your collection.
This is where you keep track of all the records you want to buy. Next time you're in a record store pop open this tab and make sure you don't forget anything. You can even look at your friends' wantlists and pickup any records they might want. When you do finally buy a record on your wantlist, tap into the record and use the record icon in the top right to transfer it to your collection.
This is where you stay up to date with all the records that your friends buy. Search for your friends by username and then tap the plus button to add them to your feed. Their little icon is the album cover for last record they added to their collection.
Protips - Tags and Shuffle:
The struggle to pick which record to listen to is real ... but Vinyl is here to help! Use tags to group your records and the shuffle button to take care of the struggle. You can have a 'Morning Approved' tag to easily find a record that goes great with cup of chemex-brewed coffee, a 'Chill' tag to find a record to accompany that vape-life, or a 'Housequake' tag to find a record when it's time to party.
*New Feature: Notes
-Every record has a story. For example, I found the Prince Batman soundtrack at Monster Melodies in Paris. Previously, those stories were subject to the human memory. Now you can add digital notes with the brand new notes feature. Tap the three dots on the top right of the record view, scroll to the bottom, and type away.
-A bunch of tiny bugs have been fixed. If you're still experiencing issues, please use the contact support button on the settings page.
Ratings and Reviews
Love this little app!
I didn’t want all the bells & whistles. I don’t need to sell from it or interact with a community. I just wanted a place to keep a record of my collection. I like that I can export and print my collection out too. I set that out at parties and people make requests. It’s a great little app.
like thIs app
This app is easy to use. I wish we could add to our collection from more than one I pad. I also would like to know if there is a way to add to the library so that we could add ones that aren’t in the catalog. Overall an easy app to use and has a lot of records in the library. Would I recommend? Yes!
I love everything about the app with the exception of one thing. So far when I export my list it isn’t in chronological order. Not by artist, date or anything even though I have my collection in order by year. Would make this a 5star app if that could get fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
