How To Search In The Database When Using The Discogs iOS App

You can access the search feature from the left menu or at the bottom of every page on the app. This feature is represented with a magnifier icon.

Tap on the magnifier icon and you will be shown the search page that includes a search bar on top of the page. Type anything in the search bar and tap Search on your keyboard.

You will be given several results; for an optimal search, we would recommend sorting your results. You can sort the given results by tapping the following options under the search bar: All, Release, Master Release, Artist or Label.

To view the page you are looking for, simply tap on the result you would like to view and you will be redirected to that specific page. Tap the back icon on the top-left corner of the screen to go back to the search page.

You can also use the barcode scanner within the search feature. At the right of the search bar, you can find the barcode icon. Once you tap it, the camera of your phone will turn on. Your screen will show a square where you can focus on the barcode you want to search for. The App will detect the barcode and give you the corresponding results. Please note that not all releases in the Database have had barcodes added, so you will not always necessarily find the result you’re looking for.
