About the hobbyDB App

The App’s barcode scanning technology allows for a range of possibilities so you can maximize your time and collection.

Have a lot of items to add to your collection but are dreading having to look each one up in the guide? Simply scan the item’s UPC code to easily add it to your collection or to customize your lists, etc.

The App is also a great tool for performing in-store research with the ability to easily check estimated values, wish lists and more. All conveniently right there in your hand.

Physical Collection Management

Our new Collectible ID allows you to add your own personal barcode to any items that exclusively belong to you, regardless of whether it has a UPC or not.

Simply use our new Collectible ID to print out a label and attach it to your item.  Then just scan that label to pull up your item, for example, to make an edit.

hobbyDB with its Showcase and now this feature is becoming more and more like a personal and free museum software – an ideal tool for collectors who are meticulous when it comes to documenting their cars, coins, corkscrews or whatever they collect.


Sellers will also find the Collectible ID useful as a means to easily manage listings and more.

More to Come!

But we’re not done there. We’re always looking to improve and upgrade the App.

The App now offers the capability of selling entire collections, lots and lists. Follow the link to read more about our Collection Selling feature.

Some of the features we’re hoping to add in the near future include –

  • Image Matching Software to make finding that specific item via the App even easier. All you’ll have to do is photograph an item and the App will match it to the hobbyDB database.
  • An innovative new technology for both online and brick-and-mortar stores that will allow you to read about the item and checkout via the App, plus lots more.
  • The ability to scan Storage Locations like bins to add an item to the Storage Location or do an inventory

So stay tuned! There’s more to come!

Your own barcodes what a great idea to track and find a piece in your collection!

Really hoping to see .csv exports and sub lists within wish lists soon.

Sub lists for Wish List will just work like in the Collection and that is planned. What is your usecase for CSV exports, I am asking as that could mean 100s of things and we like to know what you specifically have in mind here.

I agree with the exports of .csv for collections. It would make it FAR easier to check for missing info within one’s own collection. Right now one has to go item by item which is time consuming. An export then can be sorted by any column to check from missing info and then that user can go back into HDB to specifically target their search to make updates/corrections. Other DBs (Discogs) as an example does have this feature. I use it all the time to gather statistics on my record collection and populate where needed. This similar access to our own collection data in HDB I believe would make listings even more robust.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
