iScrobbler used to be good, but the developer has been extremely arrogant when it comes to dealing with all the memory leaks this app has, saying "All apps should allocate as much memory to themselves as possible, as OS X will manage it better.", which is false. The app eats up resources and is slow at times, but seems to do it's job OK.

This app made iTunes behave like a jack-in-the-box. More often than not when I quit iTunes, it would just bounce on my dock and start back up again. It was REALLY annoying. Force-quitting it made it come back faster. After searching for half an hour and removing plugins and changing settings in iTunes, I found that the problem went away entirely when I closed iScrobbler. This alone makes iScrobbler unusable. I would sooner use last.fm's bloated official client than this buggy piece of crap. Uninstalled.

Interesting that I installed version 2.3 of this thing back in Sept. 2009. Are we moving backward?

Confused as well. Who is the developer now? It says Richard Jones here. On last FM the developer is someone different. Also, the link is to a beta which is not mentioned in the description...

I can't deal with iScrobbler anymore. Every time a new song starts playing, iTunes beachballs for 5 seconds while iScrobbler polls it in some inefficient manner that holds everything up. As soon as I quit iScrobbler, the problem goes away. Need a new Last.fm client.

The amount of virtual memory a process takes up (as displayed in Activity Monitor) is largely irrelevant. What does bother me is that iScrobbler randomly jumps to 300+ MB of real RAM use (even on a 3GB system this is nontrivial) and never goes down again until I quit the app and restart it.

Hi, I also had the same problem, where iScrobbler hogged around 300mb of real memory, and 2–3gb of virtual mem. I found that if you view info on the application and choose to launch it in "32bit mode" its footprint goes down to between 8–20mb of real mem and around 800 of vim.

I have a PowerBook G4 with Leopard and it takes iScrobbler and incredible amount of time and processor crunching to appear in the menu bar.

Try dropping back to iScrobbler 1.5. It's much smaller and tighter.

I was also using a PowerBook G4, and found that iScrobbler was often using quite a lot of processor (though I was used to my computer being slowish, and liked being able to scrobble tracks I'd played on my iPod, so I kept using it.) Now I've just upgraded to a MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 3GHz, and iScrobbler still quite often uses more than 70% of a processor, and does so for several minutes at a time. Luckily I have plenty of processor to spare now, but still, that's pretty excessive given that I have the fastest Mac laptop currently available, and it uses about the same percentage of processing power as it did on a four-year-old Mac. Is it polling or something?

This uses more virtual memory than Safari, and all I want it to do is sit in the background and upload the tracks I am listening to.

I'm still using iScrobbler 1.5 because all the extra features added since have made it less stable and more cpu-hungry.
