Owning and buying Funko Pops can be a lot of fun, especially at the start. You get all excited about owning that special Funko Pop that you think might be valuable.
But once your collection starts growing and expanding, it gets harder and harder to stay on top of everything you’ve got.
That’s why keeping a list or at least track of your collection can do wonders for you, not only to keep your collection organized but also to help you determine the value of your collection.
That’s where a good application can come in very handy. Sure, you could create your spreadsheet or write down what Funko Pops you have, but wouldn’t it be easier and more convenient if you could do all of that with an app?
But which apps do that for you? Find out in this article.

Best Apps for Funko Pops Collections
These are the best apps that you can use for your Funko Pop collection.
Funko is the biggest and currently most popular Funko Pop collection app on the market. It is one of the biggest apps with a large database of over 17,000 different Funko Pops that allows you to:
- Track and update your collection
- See daily trending values of Funko Pops
- Follow price charts
- Create wishlists of your desired Funkos
- Scan products and add them to your list
This application is the most widely used Funko Pops app. It’s available for both Apple and Android users.
It’s a good application to have if you want to be serious about your collection and keep a close track of all the Funkos you have. It’s also great if you just want to casually scroll the new exclusives and products that come out, or simply check out prices of some of the most popular Funkos.
How it Works
If you’re looking to track your collection with this app, then you’re in for an easy ride. Funko offers you a great way of doing that by simply scanning the Funko you have and adding it to your collection quickly.
To add a Funko to your collection, simply scan the QR code on the bottom of the box, and the app should recognize the Funko you have quickly. Once the app recognizes the Funko, you’ll be able to add it to your collection.
It’s as simple as this to use this application.
It also allows you to create various lists where you can organize your figurines. You can also create a wishlist of all the figurines you’d like to own someday.
Overall, this application can be a great tool to manage your collection, create wishlists, check the prices, and see the overall valuation of your collection.
2. The Pop Directory (TPD)
The Pop Directory is one of the top applications used by Funko Pop collectors all around the world, but mainly in the UK. Currently, it is only available for Android users, but the developers are also promising an Apple version of the app.
Basically, this app allows you to do roughly the same things as the Funko app, with a few differences.
Namely, this app is primarily geared towards finding the latest items and following the latest trends when it comes to Funko Pops.
It will allow you to:
- View new and released items
- See item information
- Find eBay listings for items and in online stores
- Get notifications about item availability
- Create lists and share them
So this app is not as much about organizing your collection as it is about following the latest trends and finding prices of the latest items.
How it Works
The app is pretty simple to use. You can easily find items using the search engine inside the app, and you can manage these items and add them to your collection, as seen above. Then, you can also see your collection and organize it in more detail by creating additional lists.
You can also create a wishlist of items you’d like to own someday. All this will give you an easier way of tracking items that you have or the ones that you’d like to own one day.
Another great feature of the app is the ability to see the latest items that have been released, or the ones that are coming soon. You can also see the information about each item that you’re interested in.
This app is also a great one to use, although it’s not available for all users around the world and it is also currently not viable for Apple device owners – but that might well change in the future, according to the developer.
3. Pop Price Guide
Now, this is not necessarily an application, but rather a site that allows you to manage your collection and see the prices of your items, as well as the items that you don’t own.
PopPriceGuide is one of the longest-standing platforms for Funko Pop owners and enthusiasts.
It was initially one of the most popular sites for managing your collection and seeing the prices of items, but with the emergence of new and more popular apps, it is slowly starting to fall behind the rest.
This site is still a viable option, though, but you’ll need to use a browser because it doesn’t have a dedicated application.
If you’re looking strictly for an application, then this might not be your best option, but if you’re looking for something that you can use to manage your collection, you’ll be able to use this one as well.
You’ll first need to create an account on the site and create your collection by adding items to it. Note that it might take some time for the site to load at times, but when it does work, it’s a decent site to use for managing your collection and seeing the prices of various Funko Pops.
Whatnot is a more well-rounded application than Funko and the rest of the apps we’ve seen so far, because it offers more than just Funko Pops. It is also a platform for Pokemon cards, Sports cards, and other types of collectibles.
But here, we’ll focus on what it has to offer in terms of Funko Pops.
One of the most appealing things about Whatnot is that it offers you live listings, auctions, breaks, and other interesting events that you can follow to see what Funko Pops are currently selling and you’ll be able to participate, as well.
This app offers more of a feeling of community when compared to other applications we’ve seen above.
You’ll be able to participate in the community and interact with other users, which is one big advantage of using Whatnot.
How it Works
This app works by allowing you to add items to your collection and to manage your collection, and it works similarly as the other apps here. You’ll be able to create lists of items and manage your collection to keep it more organized.
What is more, you’ll also have the function of following what items are selling and for how much, which can give you a clear idea about the prices of some of the items that you have.
Overall, this app is great to use, although not as specifically targeted towards Funko Pops users such as Funko or TPD. Still, it’s a decent way to manage your collection, especially if you also have Pokemon or sports cards, or other types of collectibles, it can become your hub of collections.
Alternative: Create a Spreadsheet!
Still not sure what app to use and just need a way to manage your collection?
Then simply create a spreadsheet!
This is the simplest and easiest ways how some collectors manage their collections and keep track of what they have.
It will require you a lot more work than just using an app like Funko, but if you take the time to manage your collection and constantly update it, it will be more rewarding and detailed.
You can add various details to the spreadsheet, such as the name of the figure, year released, collection it belongs to, and its estimated price.
Of course, this method will take a lot more work and it won’t show you the prices like some apps do, but in the long-term if you’re willing to stick to it, it can be more accurate and more effective than the other methods, plus it’s free.
Why Use an App?
Using an app might be the easier option, though.
It will allow you to add items to your collection quickly by scanning the QR code, like seen with the Funko app.
Plus, you’ll be able to see new items added and their photos, so you’ll get a better idea. Using an app is overall just a better audiovisual experience if you’re serious about managing your Funko Pop collection.
