The first scrobbling app to successfully scrobble *all* the recently played tracks on my manually managed iPod Touch 2G to my Last.fm account. So now I'm using it in place of the official Last.fm client (too clunky) and AudioScrobbler (great features but too hit-and-miss). The memory leaks and runaway processor usage that some other users mentioned back in February seem to be fixed. SP has been running since boot-up this morning and is currently consuming 0% of the CPU and just under 37MB of RAM. Not too bad. For those still on the fence, SP offers some nice perqs. You can exclude tracks with a certain comment, ignore certain media, and there's seamless Growl integration. If it matched AudioScrobbler one-for-one in terms of features, it would be the Last.fm client of my dreams.

Elegant, light-weight, reliable. No Radio or Recent Track functions iScrobbler & the official app. But radio doesn't work well for a lot of people around the world w/out a subscription anyway. And you can always keep track of the recent tracks you've listened too by going to your lastfm profile page, which is accessible with a simple minimalist mugshot icon in the app's drop-down list. So it may still be a step-up from either of those for you. Lovely integration with Growl, with options to en-/disable notices. The options can be accessible from either the app itself (as a checklist) or Growl in Sys Prefs. You don't have to do so in both places I assume. The two option lists don't seem to be synchronized however. For users of iTunes who do not own/use an iPod: You need to tweak the default settings a bit. Uncheck "scrobble only if iPod was synchronized", or else the songs will not be sent to last.fm unless you press "Scrobbe Now". And if you like last.fm to keep track of the podcasts you've listened to, you also need to uncheck that in the Exclusions list. A nicely designed app that's clearly well-conceived and one that its programmer can take pride in. It'll be auto-launched from now on as the latest appreciated addition to the precious real estate of my menubar :)

Version 0.7.1 continues to work with iTunes 10.4 in Lion, with one caveat: the ScrobblePod menu always says "iTunes is not playing". In spite of this, played tracks are still sent to Last.fm, so it seems to just be a display issue in the menu.

Works as advertised. This is the most elegant / simple client I have found. No frills. Just what I needed.

This is not the web site you are looking for... scrobblepod.com is gone. https://code.google.com/p/scrobblepod/ has 0.53 - haven't tried it. And doesn't look too active either.

Meh. This has turned into the same sort of bloated piece of crap as every other Last.fm client. Still wishing for something simple that just submits songs as they play and doesn't eat up hundreds of megs of RAM for no good reason. I've got the iPod scrobbling feature turned OFF, but this stupid thing still has to be forced to submit songs whenever I have an iPod plugged in. Nice programming work there. Maybe it's time for the developer to seek out another career. I wish Apple would just build Last.fm support right into iTunes/iPod so there was no longer a need to run these badly made, resource wasting apps just to use Last.fm. Really, Last.fm (the company) ought to be the ones to provide a decent plugin for their service, but they seem incapable of doing so. In the meantime I'll have to keep putting up with this junk until something better comes along.

Work for 5 or 6 synchronizations and hasn´t scrobbled anything since 16-Dec. I don't have a clue why it stopped working.

Unfortunately, over time I found this "little" app eats up WAY too much memory and CPU. Whenever I have it open, iTunes locks up for 5 seconds everytime I change tracks. It's annoying, but I don't know whether ScrobblePod is to blame; I had the same problem with iScrobbler, so maybe something has changed in iTunes itself that causes it to run slowly when an external app is regularly polling it for information. All I know is, I can't leave this running. I'm still using this one for scrobbling, but what I do now is just run it once every couple days or so, let it scrobble once, then quit it immediately. Good enough...I don't really care about the "now playing" thing anyway.

I like the way this one is shaping up. I finally got tired of iScrobbler causing iTunes to throw a 5 second beachball party everytime I changed tracks, so I decided to try ScrobblePod again. Much happier with it this time. It's not causing large CPU spikes or locking up iTunes, and it successfully scrobbles tracks from my iPod with no setup required. I notice it uses a lot of memory. Something this simple should not require 165 MB of real memory at any time (which is where it's currently sitting for me). I occasionally restart ScrobblePod, at which point its memory usage drops to about 75 MB. This is still much too high, IMO. The exclusions are nice -- something I've wanted for awhile. I'd like to be able to enter multiple filter words (comma-separated in one input field would be fine), and I'm not clear on whether it will match the string anywhere inside the tag, or if it must be an exact match. I like the small icon-buttons in the menu (easier to find the function you want than reading text menu options), but the sliding controls overtop of the song readout are somewhat impractical. The sliding animation is very slow, at least on my older PowerBook G4 (1.67 GHz Oct 2005). I would prefer to have all of the buttons in a row beneath the song readout, always visible. All in all, a good scrobbler with the potential to be a great one. Needs a few UI tweaks, some serious memory use optimization, and a little more configurability for the filters, and it's good to go. In the meantime, this works pretty well as-is.

Works ok, but frequently locks up iTunes, and eats up CPU while scrobbling songs. Not sure why.

Well, it's not looking good so far... When ScrobblePod is "scrobbling" (submitting played tracks to Last.fm), iTunes completely locks up, and its CPU usage shoots up to 100%. Scrobbling *one song* usually takes 30 seconds or longer; in the meantime, while iTunes continues to play, you cannot control it at all, and its display does not update; it's spinning beachball time until ScrobblePod is finished. This happes after every song and becomes frustrating very quickly. Needs work. I don't recommend using it until the massive CPU spike and total iTunes lockup after EVERY song gets fixed.

Nice to see a new alternative to the official Last.fm bloatware, and iScrobbler. I hope this one works out, as I'm looking to get rid of iScrobbler (which has also turned into bloatware, and hasn't really worked properly since 1.1).
