Discogs, the user-built database of music; with a catalog of more than 6,500,000 recordings and 4,000,000 artists, has released a Discogs Android app that will make the process of building music collections and 'want-lists' easier.
With more than 10 million available items and thousands of sellers, the largest physical database in the world becomes easier to access with an app that the developers state will make access easier to the premier spot of new releases and hard to find gems.
The app also integrates some of the familiar Discogs marketplace experience, allowing buyers and sellers to access their purchase and order information on the go.
Discogs will remain consistent in listening to their user base, and aim to adapt their app developments accordingly. The company promise to reflect the on-site experience of being extremely user-friendly, and any further development to the app will reflect the community’s feedback, requests and suggestions.
The app features a barcode scanner, which quickly finds a release using the Android’s camera, and allows a user to add the correct version of an item to their collection. Going forward, both the IOS and Android Discogs apps will make improvements to Discography filtering and sorting, messaging, the VinylHub record store integration, and the Discogs Marketplace integration.
