Apps to manage your CD collection

I apologize if this has been discussed before, but a search did not return something.

Do any of you use an app to manage your CD collection and if so which one?

I tried the Collectorz app ( which has an easy barcode scanner, but the entries are a bit messy (wrong covers, composer listed in the performer field, multiple titles for a single bar code etc), but I suppose this is a problem with any collector's app for classical music (the content is added by users).

Before I purchase this one (I tried the free version which is limited to 100 entries), someone may have suggestions for better ones for managing a classical CD collection.

I use the My Movies app for my bluray collection but they do not offer a version for CDs. The requirements are that the app has a barcode scanner, works well on iOS 11, shows the cover art (booklets etc is not required) and makes it possible to make customize entries (other cover, correct track list etc.). I do not want to use Excel or other generic software.

Any recommendations?

I would be interested if any one has found an app, I some how doubt a reliable one exists.
The problem with CD's is they date back over 30 years and seem to have been manufactured all over the world by different companies with no standard naming system encoded.
For example, I have just received as a Christmas present a box set of Bruckner symphonies. iTunes offered multiple matches in various languages for each disc, there was not one consistent name for all the discs. Part of this will be these were probably never recorded with a complete set in mind. The growing profusion of relatively cheap box sets with discs from multiple sources can only exacerbate this.
On the upside there are some real bargains out there, so I happily accept that I need to take a little time to consistently index them.
