MobileScrobbler 1.0.2b Released

November 28th, 2007 9 comments

MobileScrobbler 1.0.2b is now available. This fixes a bug introduced with the last release that would cause songs to get stuck in the queue forever. I’ve also increased the size of the queue to 250 songs.

This release also includes new graphics that were posted by a user in the comments of the 1.1.1 announcement. Thanks so much for the new graphics, they look great!

MobileScrobbler 1.0.1 is now available. This is a bug fix release that should address some of the issues iPod Touch users have reported.

* Don’t try to enable EDGE on an iPod Touch
* Display a first run tip for iPod Touch users informing them that MobileScrobbler works best with a constant internet connection
* New “Session Statistics” button that displays how many tracks have been scrobbled and how many are still in the queue, as well as the last status code received from AudioScrobbler
* Misc. improvements to the queuing process when there’s no internet connection

MobileScrobler Updates

November 19th, 2007 Comments off

I’ve made a bit more progress on Mobile Scrobbler:

The status bar at the bottom has been replaced with a UIProgressHUD (see the spinny thing in the picture), and the app now puts a music note icon in the status bar indicating it’s running in the background.

It now also has basic error reporting when things go wrong. I also added code to make the iPhone connect to the EDGE network if it isn’t already, so scrobbling should work on EDGE as well as wifi.

I still need to add queuing code for when you’re in an area without signal, and I’m still waiting for last.fm to assign me a client ID. I’m hoping to be able to release MobileScrobbler soon!

Introducing MobileScrobler, a last.fm audioscrobbler client for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

It runs in the background on your iPhone/iPod Touch and automatically submits songs you play to your last.fm profile.

I have to wait for last.fm to assign me a client ID before I can release it.

Sam: yo the “help me decide” thing for deodorant lists “for vegetarians” as an option.. I’m intrigued
Sam: all it does is turn off “deodorant only” and leaves the antiperspirant / deodorant ones
Sam: now I think I want deodorant only, just to mess with vegetarians
Sohail: there is something wrong with you
Sam: dude who doesn’t want animal parts all up in their underarms?
Sohail: i love animal parts up under my arms
Sam: I’m curious as to what animal parts the deodorant has
Sam: I hope it’s made from something adorable, like bunnies
Sohail: more like its got gelatin or something
Sam: that’s much less amusing to imagine
