hobbyDB App

hobbyDB is excited to announce the arrival of its Android app.

The new mobile application joins the App Store version already available for download.

The hobbyDB app is a quick UPC scanning tool that allows the user to research an item while in Target, Hot Topic or a thrift store. It’s also a helpful tool for easily scanning your purchases directly into your collection.

We’d love to get your feedback as we look to gradually improve the hobbyDB app experience. See more regarding our future plans for the app here.

Check out our  video tutorial for getting the most out of the app. Make sure to search for “hobbyDB Vision” in the Google Play store or simply follow this link for both the Android and iPhone versions.

We’re also always on the lookout for volunteers who would like to join the hobbyDB volunteer squad in helping us add UPC codes and more to the database.

If interested, send us a message to support@hobbydb.com.

It’s a fun day here at hobbyDB as we celebrate the release of our updated app, as well as the debut of Marvel’s “WandaVision.”

Version 1.2 of the hobbyDB app is now available in the App Store. The new version fixes a few bugs and performs some maintenance to pave the way for new features arriving in the near future.

WandaVisionThe app is a quick tool that allows you to scan an item while in Target or a thrift store — or if you’re home and looking to easily scan your new purchases into your collection.

For Marvel fans, we’ve added the UPC codes to Funko’s new “WandaVision” collection. With the app, you can simply scan the UPC code to add Halloween Wanda, the chase variant of 50s Vision or anything else easily to your collection.

Check out the entire WandaVision collection here.

And have no fear, an Android version is also in the works.

It’s Here! New hobbyDB App now Available via Apple Store

You asked and we listened! Introducing our first foray into the world of mobile applications.

Thanks to the hard work of Zack Fisher, hobbyDB partner and Founder of the Toy Collector App, we’re now able to offer our initial app, which we will improve over time. 

Over the years, we’ve asked the community what was most important in terms of an app for collectors. Through those conversations, we learned that the number one requested feature was a UPC Scanner, by far. So ask and you shall receive – 

The hobbyDB App

hobbyDB AppThe new app offers quick access to the hobbyDB and Pop Price Guide websites by utilizing a simple UPC scanner.

If you are a Pop Price Guide member, you will also be able to access your collections through the app on hobbyDB.

When in the app, simply use your camera phone and hover over the UPC code on the collectible’s packaging. Once the barcode is scanned, as long as the UPC code is in the database, you’ll see the matching collectible within the app. From there you can learn more information about the item, see it’s value, and add it to your collection.

In the app, you can then create your own QR code to easily share a custom URL from your personal Showcase.

The app will also grant you direct access to the hobbyDB Blog to keep you up-to-date on all the latest news.

For now, you can download the hobbyDB app from within the Apple Store here.

These days, just about every item has a UPC code. The hobbyDB app, which will soon be available on Android devices, will read the barcode with the price sign on it. To ensure accuracy, our squad is continuously adding more UPC codes to the hobbyDB database. But we could always use more help.

As a reminder, this is part of our effort to make the entire mobile experience better and is our initial step into image and text recognition. So we’d like to know what additional features you’d like to see implemented into the mobile experience.
