Discogs Scan


Have a huge collection, but no idea what's in there? Organize it on Discogs.com.

Discogs Scan is an app that allows you to quickly scan the barcodes of all the CDs and records in your collection. It can then upload that collection to your Discogs.com account.

Even if you only want to add 10 items, it will save you time.

For true speed: use the "endless" mode, available from the preferences screen. Use the back button to quit scanning in that mode.

You can pick your own barcode scanner. We suggest either Barcode Scanner for simplicity or Google Goggles if you need the flash for low-light situations. Both are freely available in the Play store.

This is not pre-installed, so you may need to download that first.

You can manually enter the barcode if, for some reason, it isn't possible to scan it.

If the barcode for a release is not found on the Discogs.com site, you can manually search for that release through an easy interface.

Note: Due to a bug in the Discogs.com API, the login procedure is a little messy and cumbersome. You may need to scroll to the right to see the login box. If you have an older device, loading the pages may be slow. The people at Discogs are aware of this fact and are fixing their mobile-friendly layout. This app will be updated as soon as it is available. This procedure needs to be done only once, so it's not a major problem.

This app is free to download and use but is ad supported.

Recent changes:
This release is a quick fix to support Discogs.com's changes to their API. Even search actions now require registration and login.

A major overhaul of the UI and features is planned later this year. Keep an eye on this page or subscribe to the announcement mailing list to stay up-to-date.

This release also includes two enhancements:
* Scanned items are added at the top of the list instead of the bottom
* Interfacing with the Discogs API should be a little more stable now

Great idea! The scanning function works great but it doesn't seem to upload scanned CDs to Discogs itself, which pretty much defeats the point of the app! My profile is definately linked, but upon logging onto my PC to check my Discogs collection it's empty. Also, I can't access the preferences/settings on HTC One.

Cumbersome It's cumbersome to use and doesn't find a lot of the media. I found another application that seems to work better but costs a little money, Media Tracker if it helps anyone else.

Meh Decent enough if you've got a huge collection of releases that all have barcodes and are in discogs' database, but if you've got a large collection of underground or independent releases, you must add them all manually. Furthermore, cmon discogs, get your act together! You couldn't find the barcode for Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers- A Night In Tunisia?! Lame!

It works. Great idea. User interface could be more intuitive. But as far as I know, it's the only one of its kind.
