When iCrates App brings you the search results back it will be divided into three portions namely Artists, Releases and Label. All of these portions are further divided into categories and lists. For the Release Tab you will see information like EPs, singles and Albums tagged with the information such as Label, Artist, Ca#.


If you want to view more details about any of the main portions, tapping them will pop-up more details. Moreover, if any of the three portions(Release, Artist, Label) have a website, that particular information will also be displayed. You can add your search history to Favs list as well and later on can share this Fav list with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

I think iCrates for iPhone and iPod Touch is a pretty useful and handy tool for music fans. The search feature that this app offers is very comprehensive although Bar code scanner sometimes is unable to search for a particular CD. You can download iCrates from App store for $1.99.
