Native DASH apps for both iOS and Android devices extend the usefulness of the DASH experience anytime/anywhere. The features set of DASH's mobile apps is thoughtful, enabling collectors to do things they have never been able to do before.
The World's Largest Resource in Your Pocket
Available as a free download, the DASH apps enable all collectors to check facts and photos of any item against the DASH Catalog. Search the Catalog from the mobile device, even using the built-in barcode scan feature on Android devices. All photos in the DASH Catalog are viewable on the mobile device, enabling collectors to validate the identification of an item they are looking at.
Take it With You
The DASH mobile apps enable collectors to sync their collections and wanted lists into their phone. They can look up items in the Catalog on their phone and add/remove them from their collections. Having this access keeps collectors from acquiring things again they already have, and being sure they are buying the things they want. Having a sync'ed copy of their collections in their phones, collectors can easily share their collections with fellow enthusiasts. Collectors also value having mobile access to private info such as their cost of acquistion for items in their collection.
The World's Best Values Guide in Your Pocket
Because the DASH Catalog also maintains a rich, updated values guide, users with the DASH mobile apps can search for items and look up the current DASH values for that item. This access is invaluable when at a show or garage sale!
Solving the Pain of Photographing Your Own Items
Whether a collector wants to insure or sell items in their collection, the need to take pictures of their items is prevalent. And with hundreds or thousands of items in many collections, this seemingly simple task is often logistically daunting. With the DASH mobile apps, a collector can simply tap on the specific item in their collection they want to photo, click the camera icon, snap several photos on their camera phone, and click to "Use" these photos. DASH will automatically upload these photos into the collector's collection and marketplace listings. No cables, memory cards, uploading, renaming...in short no hassle.
Short Video Demo of DASH Mobile Apps
The DASH mobile apps are built for re-purpose across different collectible categories. Most of the actual content presented to the user is delivered to the app from the server, and re-skinning the few graphics in the mobile interface is straightforward. The apps configure themselves dynamically based on the attributes and fields delivered from their API-defined conversations with the server. Additionally, different levels of user functionality are exposed based on server-controlled rights, enabling a flexible and extensible lifecycle of use for different categories.
