Hot Topic, Hard Rock Café and More Unique Barcodes Added to hobbyDB App

If you are frequently on the road or just want to have a faster way to find items on hobbyDB we have some exciting news.

Known for its UPC-scanning technology, the App makes an ideal tool for performing quick in-store research. It also comes in handy for easy access to collection management features.

We’ve now added the ability to scan more than just UPC codes with the addition of Hot Topic and Hard Rock Cafe’s unique barcodes. This also includes the ability to add any other unique barcodes. What other brands feature their own barcodes? Share those thoughts with us in the comments below.



More Features Arriving in the Future

Coming soon we’ll be migrating our ISBN numbers, so that books, magazines and comics can then also be covered via the hobbyDB App.

It’s also our plan to eventually offer image recognition software. That will allow loose items or those without a barcode to be scanned.


Renewed Call for Help

To power the App, our members rely on the hobbyDB Squad of volunteers, who have helped to add thousands of UPC codes to the database. Now we need those Hot Topic, Hard Rock Cafe and other barcodes added!  Read more about the Squad and how you can join by following this link.


As always, we welcome your thoughts. Share any questions, kudos or concerns below. If you’d like to help us add barcodes, items, prices as a member of the hobbyDB Squad, message us at

Don’t forget to download the hobbyDB App. Android and iPhone versions are available here.  And/or you can also use a scanner plugged directly into your desktop!
