The hobbyDB app is a simple UPC scanner to quickly scan and research items in the hobbyDB.com and poppriceguide.com catalog. Eventually support will be expanded to image and text recognition as well. The application also provides a direct link to your collection showcase and the hobbyDB Blog so you can keep up-to-date with the latest information from hobbyDB!
We have heard your requests loud and clear. We are hard at work on making changes to our website to allow for tighter integration between hobbyDB Vision and the website. While version 1.1 doesn't provide any noticeable changes yet we are working on making this app your go-to resource to curate and cultivate your collection!
-- Our first major update to the hobbydb Vision app! The new version provides a much more seamless experience, with scanned results appearing directly in the application instead of switching over to your browser.
-- Visit your showcase and manage your collection directly within the hobbydb Vision application!
-- We are still working hard on additional improvements, but we hope these changes provide a more pleasant experience. As always, we welcome your feedback.
-- Fixed a bug that occasionally resulted in a slow and unusable camera.

This app launches with the barebones. That being said, the developers have promised added features in the future that will make the app vital to any funko owner. Will gladly change the review to 5 stars when these features come out!

Hi! Version 1.3 adds some new features we think you will like. Let us know! Thanks for the feedback! Yes. We have lots of plans. The number one request we received was having a way to scan barcodes quickly and add items to a collection so we wanted to get this “barebones” app out as quickly as possible to meet that need while we continue to work on other improvements! Thanks, Zack
Not what I wanted at all
Really skimped on the app. I wanted an app that combined the functionality of the Funko app and the accuracy of the website. Instead we get a scanner that links to (ie opens a web browser to) the website. I was hoping for something I could log into, bring everything up, rather than spending the time it takes to load the site, log in, etc. Huge letdown.
Also, while we are at it, fix the website so we can choose our own groupings, have a list view like the old ppg site did rather than the large icon pics. Ever since the merge your stuff has been super jacked and not user friendly at all.

Hi! Version 1.3 adds some new features we think you will like. Let us know! Thanks for your feedback. Rest assured, we aren’t done! We plan on adding additional features and options in the coming months. We just wanted to get something out quickly with the scanning functionality as that was by far our most requested feature. We are also continually working on improving the site and hear your concerns. Contact us directly and we can provide more detail and discuss how you can play a larger part in shaping our direction and how some of our recent updates, like custom groups, might meet some of your current needs.

If you can’t keep a list of my collection and after I scan something I have to go ALLLLLL the way back to the site to do anything about then all of this was pointless. Wake up and fix these issues it’s really simple, should not have tried to speed up putting this app out there. Doesn’t even have all the pops listed, 18inch Pikachu wasn’t even in the database.

Hi! Version 1.3 adds some new features we think you will like. Let us know! Thanks for your feedback. We are constantly working on updating our free products to meet the demands of our fellow collectors. As you know, new items are added to the database daily, and we are hard at work keeping it updated. When you notice something missing or incomplete, we encourage collectors to let us know right away so we can make the corrections. Many of our collecting community even become curators themselves to help keep the site updated. As for the application itself, we plan many new features in the next few months, but the ability to scan was #1 on the request list so we wanted to go ahead and have that out on the App Store right away. We hope you will be patient and help us to continue to improve! Thanks, Zack
