    I've been using the official Last.fm scrobbler for Mac, but it's soooo slow.
    It freezes quite a lot when I click it in the menu bar to 'love' a track, so I'm looking for another one.

    The things I want it to do are:
    - scrobble my music (duh)
    - let me 'love' a track
    - iPod integration


    Any suggestions?
    (Price is not an issue)

    I use iScrobbler made for Mac's. I regularly sync my iPod Nano and Touch with it works really well.

    EDIT: Just checked you can love a Track with it also. So it meets all your needs.

    I used to use iScrobbler but I actually like the official lastfm client better now.

    But I only use it for scrobbiling, nothing else.

    iScrobbler is definitely the best. It has local stats, too.

    Thanks a lot!

    The officiel Last.fm scrobbler has a nicer UI but freezes quite a lot (I have to wait about 30 seconds for it to respond when I click the menu bar icon ... any explanation for that?)

    So until that's fixed, I'll be using iScrobbler.

    The newest version of iScrobbler has the radio too, so there's really no reason to use Last.fm.

    I'm a sucker for a nice GUI

    So am I, but not at the expense of functionality.

    True.

    Does this problem (freezing) happen to anyone else as well with the official Last.fm client?
