Vinyl Record Price Guide App
By Mark LoPiccolo
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is a database of Hundreds of Thousands of actual sold records. No bells and whistles here (some people don't like it for that reason), just extremely valuable information. Find the value of an Album (33 rpm LP), 45 rpm and 78 rpm vinyl records when you are at a garage sale or thrift store using the Record Price Guide App. Great for personal record collections. A good example - would you buy a 33 of Milstein Bach partitas and sonatas on Capitol PCR 8370 for $3? I would not have in the past. However, armed with the Rare Record Price Guide App, I would buy it because one sold for $800 with13 bids. Also great for a collector in determining a list price if selling a record.
It's ok, but there is something way better
When you are not the first into the market place, then your product is suppose to do something better than the competition or do it much cheaper. This app doesn't do either. Don't waste your money here, Ceefrenzy is far superior.
The GUI on this app is crude, and in the search mode it doesn't show thumbnails of the actual album. This is deal breaker if you don't know all the various album versions. On Ceefrenzy sometimes I just speed scroll through the search results to a thumbnail that looks like the album I have in hand. Here you have to read each description to match the album. However, if you are buying an album through this app, you get thumbnails, but not for the search function. If you could do it on one screen, why not the other.
Another deal killer. I ran twenty comparable searches. On average Ceefrenzy produced more than triple the results. in fairness, on a couple of obscure classical music titles this produced two results that Ceefrenzy missed.
I do like the ability to search by record speed, but that is not enough to warrant buying the app. If the GUI was much more polished, and if the search results were thumb nailed and if the app allowed for advanced Boolean operator searches then maybe it would be worth buying, but not this version.
Agree with the previous reviewer. CeeFrenzy is by far the better app for vinyl record searching. I will keep this in the hopes future updates will improve functions. As of right now it's pretty useless. Record search pulls listings with zero info other than title and price. No pics, no descriptions. And I don't need a buy it now feature. I just go to my eBay app & get it done more efficiently with more options. As a crate digger I was hopeful, but this has just let me down :(
Horrible search results, limited data, cumbersome to use. Don't waste your money like I did.
