Ratings and Reviews
Not much more than a bookmark for now
I’m fairly certain that the feedback team will send the generic response to this.
The app is likable with easy access to the cards. There’s some great features that make life very simple for the buyer and seller interested in cards. It provides great service while doing the function of a mobile store.
In certain cases, I do find difficulties with load times. This is more so on the ISP than on the app itself. The fact that databases can be updated to support increased speed in which the app can be accessed is nice. It’s a decent compromise. Great work on that part.
The glaring issue is that the product variety on the scanner is very limited to the three listed card games. While nice, this inherently restricts the user to only three card games. I’m assuming that this is being worked on to accommodate the listed games and more.
Also on that note, I would like to have the option of picking and choosing frequently used databases to increase speed. There are some card games that people don’t play, thus eliminating the need for that particular data update. It might be best for those that have an account and would like to have that access through the settings menu. For example, if a person plays MTG and Pokémon, but not Yu-Gi-Oh, you can have that database be removed from the update package.

Pretty good but far too laggy
I do like the TCGplayer app. It’s convenient to have an app to easily access the price of cards. It’s also an incredibly useful tool as a seller.
The huge, glaring issue with the app is its lag/consistency. The app is usually quite slow. Occasionally it straight up drops connection (tested on stable internet against a computer accessing the website). There are times where it would load the frame but not the actual prices and sellers. It’s hard to quickly look something up for a trade, especially if you have to jump through extra hoops to find the price guide when searching normally doesn’t work.
As it stands, I don’t recommend this as a quick reference tool. This app should only be used by sellers that want to check their inventory. Mobile buys can use it, too but really only should when you absolutely want to use TCGplayer.

Good enough but rough edges
The app does a lot of great stuff in how it integrates with TCGPlayer’s site but it has a number of shortcomings.
The scanner on this app is very finicky and slow. I’ve given up on trying to scan any pre8th edition black cards entirely and green or blue can be inconsistent. If MTGManager didn’t have such a quick and consistent scanner I’d let it slide. That said, MTGManager also charges for stuff & this app is fully free. I don’t know how your scanner works but if it doesn’t already do it I’d suggest having it read the card text and comparing it to an existing database to help narrow down the possible cards. At bare minimum you’d get the right card but wrong version sometimes.
It would be nice if the app had slightly more sorting options. The ability to sort the cards you’ve added to a binder with even these minor options would be amazing:
Number of copies
Also the ability to search to see if a card is in your collection could be a nice addition.
Or even just manually moving cards up or down the list.
Overall it’s a pretty good app, and it’s hard to complain when it’s FREE. I just want some improvements. The scanner stuff could be tough but just improving sorting alone would make me immensely happy

Hello! Our Technology team is actively collecting feedback and working on updates to improve the TCGplayer app experience. Key factors for successful scanning are: 1) scanning against plain white background 2) scanning at an angle 3) making sure the camera can see the entire card.
