New Discogs App Updates Include Reviews and Wantlist Sharing

Gold, frankincense, and myrrh are cool and all, but wouldn’t you prefer a gift of, say, a portal to your favorite record stores in the palm of your hand? If you need a desperate reprieve these holidays from the jingle bells, the chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, look no further than your phone. We’re delivering some new features for your scrolling, tapping, and swiping pleasure these holidays.

Download or update now to enjoy the upgraded service and functionality of Discogs on-the-go (even if you’re not on-the-go right now).

Reviews at your fingertips

:apple-icon::android: :new:

Reviews are a beloved element of Discogs Release, Master Release, Artist, and Label pages. And for good reason — they’re a vital way of sharing your thoughts with kindred spirits in the Discogs Community or getting the skinny on a release before you add to cart. Previously, reviews were only available in the Android app, and only to view.

Now you have full review functionality in the iOS and Android apps. You can now read, write, edit, and/or remove (your own reviews only), as well as reply to reviews to your heart’s content.

If you’re new to reviews on Discogs, make sure you check out our guidelines for what to include and what to leave out.

An easier way to share your Wantlist

:apple-icon::android: :new:

… and be received in a way that will make the recipient actually want to cross something off it for you. We’ve improved the look of the tiled image and increased the number of album covers that are shared. You can select which album covers you’d like to include in the image or tap “Shuffle” to get a random mix.

Try it out for yourself. Go into your Wantlist in the app, tap the three dots at the top-right, then tap “Share.” You can send your Wantlist to anyone you like over any kind of digital medium like social media, messaging apps, email, or even AirDrop on iOS.

Make sure you’re using the most up-to-date version of the app to enjoy these recent updates. Stay tuned for even more in 2021! And be sure to check out our other recent app features.
