    Has anyone else noticed that Last FM no longer works with 2.1 iPhone software update, or is it just me?

    Appears to work just fine for me.

    Spoke too soon, "recommend radio" doesn't work but "my library" seemed to.

    Are you sure? When you first enter the app and play your library, it 'appears' that it works, because you see a progress bar moving, but you will notice that there is no sound and no album artwork is being displayed and as soon as you press the forward skip track button, it crashes back to the home screen.

    I just saw another complaint of this on the iTouch forum concerning Last FM crashing with 2.1 on the Touch.

    You're right. It doesn't work. I thought it was but I must have clicked the button on the earphones to start my music up.

    That's disappointing.

    Yeah, definitely disappointing. I hope they fix it soon. Last FM was my favorite app on the iPhone. Although a little less stable than Pandora, Last FM's sound quality is miles ahead of Pandora's mono stream.

    Well, they did remove two audio things from the SDK...dunno if that affects Last FM.

    Last.fm was the first app I opened after the 2.1 update. It crashed after about 10 seconds. Really disappointing since 2.1 was supposed to improve app stability. So glad to know I'm not the only one having problems with it.

    Yikes! That sucks. I love the Last.fm app (though admittedly don't use it as much as I want to).

    Maybe it doesn't work because they're preparing an all NEW version that supports direct-from-iPod scrobbling!!! :) (ok, ok...but I can dream, at least...)

    Just adding my name to the list of sad people that last fm doesn't work for.
    Upgraded to 2.1 today, having second thoughts.
    BTW symptoms etc.:
    first app I launched
    no sound,
    no artwork,
    crashes on next song button press
    crashes on Recommended Radio
    My Library *looks* like it's working but has no sound
    Does buffer
    bio shows (null) and "Loading"
    -bio also shows an artist name at top
    :(
