Wax is the only record collecting app that lets you edit every detail of the records you own, from the artwork to the price you paid, and even enter a record manually that doesn't exist in any record collecting database online. 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? And what about your friend's band's test press - not in any database online? Add it to your collection manually. And if it's not in your collection, but you want it to be? Just put that in your Grab List instead.
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? Either set up a series of rules in a Smart Crate, which will always be up to date with whatever records match those rules, or curate the records manually with a regular Crate - either way, organize your collection how you want to.
Lastly - Wax isn't just for vinyl. 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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Hi there, I'm glad you're enjoying wax! That bug that you mentioned seems to affect a few other people too, and I'm working on tracking it down. EDIT (Jan 20, 2018) That bug you mentioned should be fixed up in 2.0. Thanks 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!
Easy to use, solid app
Overall a great cataloguing app, I like that the album art is automatically downloaded and it’s quick and simple to add albums.
The one feature I’d love to see is the ability to search all songs/artists on the albums. Currently you can’t search for individual songs or artists on the albums. This would be a nice feature especially for compilation albums.
Hi there, thank you for the suggestion! I've added it to the backlog.
