Wax for iPhone - Own Your Record Collection
By Richard Myers
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
your record collection is yours - not a bunch of checkmarks in a database.
search for records, add them to your collection, and let them tell a story. customize every detail about each album and organize them how you please. you got that 7" at a show in a college basement in '96? make a note of that. how about that limited edition LP - what number is yours? is it signed by the guitar player? and what about your friend's band's test press - not in any database online? add it to your collection manually. with wax, you can edit every detail of every record in your collection.
furthermore, your collection deserves to be organized better than "i have this record" or "i don't have this record". with crates, you can organize your records into groups based on any criteria you please. maybe you want to be able to see all your soundtracks at a glance? or everything you have released by your favorite label, or by bands from your city? add them to a crate and organize your collection how you want to.
lastly - wax isn't just for vinyl anymore. with a $2.99 in-app purchase, wax will let you search for and add music media of any format.
don't just check off the records you have. it's your collection - own it.
the big stuff:
- take your record collection with you - no more buying duplicate albums
- add your records by barcode scan, manual entry, or artist / album, catalog number, or record label searches
- retrieve (and edit!) every detail about all the records you own
- organize your records into crates by whatever criteria you please
- remember records you want to buy via your grab list
- catalog your entire collection (not just vinyl!) via an in-app purchase
the small stuff:
- share records with friends through email, openable right in the app
- get links to buy records on discogs, amazon, and ebay - without the ads!
- can't decide what to listen to? shake your device to select a random record
- quickly search for a record from your home screen (3D-touch enabled devices only)
- export your collection to text and JSON via email

A valuable tool for vinyl collections
I’m finding the app easy to use and outstanding at finding every obscure version and edition that has ever been published. I’m also happy to know I can add my own entries for the real oddballs. My first wish for improvement is being able to browse my collection on my iPad. Someday? Secondly, after a search and after looking through the “thumbnails,” I may choose a version that turns out to not be an exact match. When I close that choice, I have to go all the way back and start my search all over again.
Great way to keep track of my vinyl collection
I have an extensive vinyl collection and am always shopping for new records. I also have a terrible memory and a tendency to buy doubles. With Wax, this will no longer be an issue. I now have access to every record I own, so if I'm not sure if I already own something, I can pull out my phone and check the list on this app. Highly recommended for the casual or advanced collector!
Great and simple UI for keeping track of my vinyl collection. Would love it if I can somehow export my collection list or sync with Discogs.
