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?
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.
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.
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.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
This app does just about everything I could ask. Finally have a true tracker of my collection and being able to share between my iPad and iPhone is major. Wish we could see the $ value of a record, but perhaps that will come, no other app has a $ value either.
So happy to have found this app recently to catalog my vinyl collection. When I uploaded this to my old phone, it worked flawlessly for scanning in my collection. After upgrading to a new phone, I’m repeatedly asked to log into Discogs, and don’t have the option to scan anything. 😒 I’m sure the app just needs an update, but it’s kind of annoying.
The only thing I’d like to see change in future versions of the app is to have dollar amounts listed for individual titles, instead of just the full collection.
If you can get it to work as it should, I highly recommend this app! In spite of my minor complaints, I do love it.
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.
