Record Holder is the collector’s choice for managing record and CD collections. It is backed by Discogs, the world's largest music database.

What makes Record Holder the best?

Universal app.
Record Holder is the Discogs-backed app that works just as well on your iPad as it does on your iPhone. Use it on your iPad at home, and on your phone at the record store.

Barcode scanning and catalog-number search.
Lots of Discogs apps have barcode scanning, and Record Holder is no exception. But Record Holder also puts catalog-number searches front and center for all your older titles. If your latest haul is a mix of newer and older titles, your workflow isn't interrupted.

Advanced filtering.
It can be painful to find your exact version of older releases, or releases with many color variations. Record Holder is the only app that features full format and matrix-identifier information when scanning or searching by catalog number. Use identifier filtering to pare down long lists.

Complete information.
Many apps just check to see if you have a specific release in your collection. Record Holder takes the time to learn which releases you have and which ones you want. When you’re searching or scanning, Record Holder prioritizes that information, whether you own that release, or even a different pressing.

Saved offline.
Record Holder caches all your data, so when you're in that cool basement shop with no connection, you still know exactly what you have and what you're looking for.

Backed up online.
Record Holder uses your Discogs account to make sure your collection and wantlist are synced to the cloud. If you lose your phone or get a new one, just log in to your Discogs account, and it will all come back.

Great things come in small packages.

This little app does a great job! I’ve a entered or scanned every album I have and in the process found I had duplicates. It’s really helpful to be able to check a potential purchase to see if you already own it. All this and not a single app problem to be found. Thanks so much for a great little app!

Some Needed Functionality

First, this app is beautiful and an excellent way to look at your collection. It’s intuitive and facilitates finding your stuff quickly.

But this app is only good for viewing, adding, and deleting albums. There is no way to do any real maintenance. Even simple things like moving an album from one folder to another, or adding notes. There’s also no good way to go to a “For Sale” page to actually buy a version, or even just see if there are any items available for sale without using the internal browser. I’d like an easier way to buy albums.

3.4GB backup?!?!

I’ve been using this app for a while, it’s a good app with room for improvement like more filters while searching and as someone already posted an easier way to go for a buy.

But what has been causing concerns is that I say in my iCloud account it’s creating a 3.4GB backup!! Even thought it’s using 1.7GB on my ipad, which is too much anyway for a under 300 records collection assuming it’s local database would be the largest. Need improvement on this

Developer Response ,

Hi! Record Holder doesn't save anything to iCloud. Instead it syncs with directly. If you could reach out to RH support on this via email, twitter or facebook, we can try and help sort this out.
