    Don't know if this is common knowledge.... certainly wasn't to me... i was so close to jailbreaking my iPhone last night just for MobileScrobbler until i stumbled across a thread talking about it....

    Basically Last.Fm release a beta Mac desktop client which now includes scrobbling support for the touch devices. Just download the latest version from the site, 1.5.3 for the Mac anyway, and it now works.

    Thanks
    Jamie

    Download it and find out. I haven't used it since I installed it. I don't really use any of those music apps.

    I'm talking about the DESKTOP app ... since i mentioned "Mac" ... try reading posts before commenting

    The iPhone last.fm app just streams music but doesn't do scrobbling of music you play in the ipod app.

    The new version of last.fm desktop software now updates your profile with the tracks played on your touch devices.

    Up till now you had to jailbreak and install mobilescrobbler.app or similar to get scrobbling

    Every time I've connected my iPod touch since I first installed Last.fm on my Mac (July 2008), it's scrobbled all my recently played tracks.

    Last summer when I installed this on my iPhone, it told me to download and instal the desktop version to be able to scroggle. Ever since then, everytime I connect my phone, the desktop app opens and everything I played on my iPhone shows up on the desktop app.

    Yep, been out for ages now.

    HOWEVER -- it doesn't always work. In fact, it's been so frustratingly non-workable for me, that I've just given up on it. I'm not the only one too -- a lot of people are complaining about this on their boards...
