    I wanted to use PocketPedia because I haven't used it in so long and I find out that is no longer working.... some problems with Amazon's search engine

    anyways, is there another app to replace it with?
    I'm talking about an app to enter video games/DVDs/ collection

    Any suggestions?

    Any database app will do the trick. I am in the same boat that you are in. However, I DELETED Pocketpedia totally and did the following with excellent results. In DVDpedia, export the DVD, CD database etc as a .csv file to the desktop. Now, I had two options, both of which were iPhone apps that I already own. In Bento, I imported the csv file into the Bento desktop app, then synched it with the Bento iPhone app. GREAT RESULT minus the DVD cover. I also tried the same with HanDbase. Got same results, though not nearly as well organized as the Bento database. Bento costs more, but it is certainly more user friendly than HanDbase. By the way, if you buy HanDbase, dont waste your money on the desktop app, it is not needed, and in fact, I find the app to work SMOOTHER without it. As far as Bento goes, Im sure the app works fine without the desktop counterpart, however, the desktop counterpart is a great addition to the iPhone app! Good luck.

    I was a happy Pocketpedia user. When it stopped functioning, I found and started using Itemshelf. There's a Lite (free) version. It does does pretty much what Pocketpedia did, with a few extra bells and whistles to boot.

    Thankfully, Delicious Library still syncs with the desktop app.
