  • New playback controls and progress bar design
  • iPod scrobbles with multiple plays are now submitted at 1 second intervals instead of all at the same time

  • Fixed some memory leaks
  • Scrobble count on profile tab now updated correctly (unless you scrobble elsewhere)
  • Do not display corrections in the client (it wasn't respecting the website setting and was causing a few issues)
  • 'Similar Artist' header in the track metadata view is now a link to more similar artists on the site
  • There is now a warning/explanation in the iPod scrobble confirmation dialog when you have red/invalid iPod scrobbles
  • Now shows the correct modifier keys on Windows for the raise/hide Scrobbler option
  • Mute now works from the system tray and menu option
  • The last page of the wizard now doesn't say we've imported your listening history, if we haven't
  • Fixed an issue where the tray icon would be invisible if the first run wizard tour was skipped
  • Less logging (there was an issue with log file sizes getting very big)

Impossible to get this version (or most of it's previous versions) to scrobble songs from your iPodtouch. It just either cannot find the scrobled songs, or just cannot scrobble them forward. As a only solution for scrobbling from iPod, i have given up.

2.1.35 details update :

Features

Exclude directories! You can now exclude music in certain directories from being scrobbled
Systray/menu bar icon is greyed out when scrobbling is disabled
Users can now hide both the dock icon and the menu bar icon (restart only required when hiding dock icon on 10.6)
Binary delta updates will be supported from the release after this one
[Experimental] Added the ability to use SSL for all web services calls
Bug fixes

Fingerprinting was causing crashes so has been temporarily disabled until we find a proper fix
Fixed an issue where it was possible to get two running versions of the applications after an update. Please note that as this fix was to the update mechanism it will only be corrected in the update after this one so please make sure you don't have two versions of the app running after this update.
Device scrobbling improvements
We now force that a compatible iTunes plugin version is installed before trying to device scrobble
Prompt to install the new plugin has been improved
Don't crash if Airfoil is connected during the first run wizard
Tracks now get their scrobble and loved status updated when the scrobble list is refreshed
Fixed scrobbling problems associated with setting the scrobble point to 100%
Fixed double scrobble and missed scrobbles
There's now a setting to turn of the maximum scrobble point being 4 minutes
Scrobble point and max scrobble turn off now take effect during the current track

I could not get the app to launch until I found the little skip tour button. It's a 'learn the new features thing' that launches initially and appears to be broken. Until you click the little skip tour button and finish authenticating your account to the app via a web browser you can't get to the app. You won't be bothered by the tour thing next time you launch it.

Pretty nice upgrade once you get past this but -2 because it stopped me cold for a good 5-10 minutes, not cool.

Also, it still supports Growl, not Notification Center in 10.8.

Why is this and the Last.fm player listed here as two separate apps? They are the SAME APP.

Thanks for pointing that out Jynto. I've merged the two listings.

I'm upping my previous one-star rating to two stars...the Last.fm client no longer causes fatal crashes in iTunes, but it stalls a CPU core at 100% every time it finds plays on my iPhone, then waits for input even though the preferences are set to auto-submit. Meanwhile my MBP heats up like crazy. Not cool, guys, not cool...

This is the single most unstable application I've installed on my mac in the past year (and I've tried a LOT of apps). 9 times out of 10, it fatally crashes iTunes during iPhone sync. Which is too bad, because there are very few alternatives that track plays made on mobile devices like the iPhone, iPods, and iPad. Unless you have no other choice, don't even download.

Historically, the Last.FM player has been inconsistent and unreliable, rarely doing correctly what it claims to do (especially iPod based scrobbling).

However, with the updates made to iTunes in summer 2009, Last.FM can actually crash the entire music system. Just to enable syncing with my iPhone, I had to completely wipe Last.FM from my system; the iTunes plugin, the application itself, and its preferences.

Not just a bad-but-usable application anymore, it's downright malicious. Please avoid if you wish to continue using iTunes+iPod/iPhone.

Earlier versions of the player tried to scrobble in all sorts of places I told it not to. Now with verion 1.3.0.58 I get the message "Won't scrobble: track is in a directory set to not srobble.

I really like the idea of the site, but there is a lot of work that needs to be done on the app.

Make sure iTunes is closed when running this app for the first time, or it will almost immediately crash.
