DiscCat

DiscCat


Scan in the barcodes on all of your media to DiscCat to keep track of what you have to prevent duplicate purchases.
DiscCat is a simple catalog for DVDs, Games, Books, or whatever else you would like to keep track of.
Can store cover images, IMDB links. Has Wishlist & Rental tracking.

There is a feature for attempting to look up DVDs based on the barcode online. I cannot stress enough that this *will* fail on a large proportion of your discs. Please do not download expecting to not have to type anything in, as you will likely be disappointed.

Barcode scanning is all performed by whatever barcode scanning app you have installed. I recommend the app 'Barcode Scanner' by ZXing Team - this is the app that will be installed if you do not have a scanner already. Any issues with scanning barcodes (this includes strange things happening when you press buttons while scanning) are entirely due to whatever barcode scanner you have chosen to install.

CD titles are displayed in the order you typed them in - if you type in the artist followed by the title, that is how it will be displayed - I have no control over this.

Recent changes:
* Categories can now have an apostrophe in them
* I am aware of the camera crashing on some HTC (and the EEE Pad) phones. Working on it as fast as I can, but I do not have an HTC phone to test on.

Very handy DROID Bionic, love this app. I have a larger collection 400+ titles. Manages it just fine. No problems. Update: 12-2013 So I shattered my Bionic lost all files. Got a Galaxy Note 3. Fortunately I have my movies on IMDB too. I was able to down load a .csv file from IMDB edit the file as per the instructions in the "Advanced Import" in Disccat and Wah-la 496 records added 0 errors. Great app.

Hunt is too hard I scanned the UPC from a popular movie. App didn't find it "in the database." I used the option to search the Internet. It found the name of movie for me. But I had to search again to select a cover. And I still had none of the additional data (year, studio,etc.). Too much work for my whole collection.

Unfortunately ... Good idea, but needs improvement. About half the items I tried (all CDs and DVDs) would not scan. The inventory list doesn't show the artist name for CDs, only the album title. Accidentally pressing the volume control button during a scan brought up Google Googles, which took over the camera, scanned the bar code, and told me what the item was. Interesting, but useless, since Goggles won't put items in DiscCat's local database. The advertisement area overlays some of the instructions. I look forward to improvements, since I need an app like this!
