MusicBrainz for Android is a mobile app for viewing MusicBrainz data on the Android platform. It allows you to:

  • View release information by scanning a barcode
  • Search for information about artists, releases, release groups,labels, recordings, instruments, and events
  • View collections
  • Tag audio files like Picard
  • Donate to the MetaBrainz Foundation via PayPal

Download

The app is available to download on Google Play.

Issues

If you think you have found a bug, please report it on the issue tracker. The app is under active development again since 2019 and some new features are planned. You can suggest and vote for new features in the same location.

Development

Android app development was led by Jamie McDonald. It began as a Google Summer of Code project in 2010. The work came to a standstill sometime around 2015. In 2019, the work on the app was initiated again by amCap1712. The app underwent a major overhaul to make it compatible with the current Android ecosystem. The app is under active development since then.

The source code for the app is maintained on GitHub and you can get it with all its history using:

git clone git://github.com/metabrainz/musicbrainz-android.git

If you are interested in providing development assistance, join the #metabrainz IRC channel on irc.freenode.net or simply fork the project and make pull requests on GitHub.
