Discogs Scan

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

Crashes after scanning App keeps crashing after scanning and clears what was just scanned so you need to start over or upload after each scan. Very time consuming. Would be nice to save scanned items into a cache with frequent uploads to the server. 50% success rate of identifying a barcode, that would be 4 of 8 that were successfully scanned. Gave up after four crashes within 5 minutes. Samsung S5.

Doesn't work Finds the album alright, but there's no way to add it to your Discogs collection, no button or anything. It talks about a menu button that isn't there either.

Does what is supposed to... works as designed. Wish UI was better. Other then that, great

Crashes In spite of its limited number of features it crashes often. With the frequent crashing and losing uncommitted entries it's not really a time saver. Entering the bar codes manually on Discogs is faster and less frustrating in the long run.

Where Is The Track List? I touched everything but the escape button and still no track list. It only display artist and album title as well as album art covers. I want to know each and every song listed on the CD. In the photo this is shown. Maybe it's something I'm doing wrong or something. Good concept though.
