Last.fm for iPhone and iPod Touch

We are pleased to announce the launch of Last.fm on the iPhone and iPod Touch! Sam Steele, our iPhone development army of one, has been cranking away at a full blown Last.fm app on Apple’s mobile platforms for months now and the results are nothing short of insanely great.

Read on for details, but this video speaks for itself.


To get started, go to the music category of the iTunes App store (in iTunes or on your iPhone/Touch). Find the Last.fm app and download it (for free).

Log in or signup to Last.fm and you’ll be presented with a fairly obvious selection of Last.fm functionality. Things with the red circle icon start streaming. You can navigate through the menus and go back with the button in the upper left.

Once you start streaming something, you’ll have access to the familiar Last.fm contextual items (love, ban, skip… tagging will be in the next version). You can also check out the artist bio, similar artists and events (particularly cool). If there are current events for the now playing artists, you can specify if you’re attending or not and go to a Google map for the event location.

There’s a lot you can do in this app, but the interface is pretty slick so hopefully it will all be pretty discoverable.

There ARE a couple caveats…

First of all we are initially rolling this out in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany and Spain. We’re looking at other locales but have to deal with licensing and a host of other issues. We assure you that we’re working on it.

Secondly, there are no background applications allowed on the iPhone/Touch. There are several implications to this, but what it mostly means is any time you click a link that loads Safari, the music will stop and you’ll have to restart the app. This means event maps, and bio links. We’re looking at alternatives, but for now that’s the breaks.

To end with a bit of icing, the app knows how to read lastfm:// links. That means if you’re browsing the Last.fm website on the iPhone and click a “play in software” link, the app will start streaming for you! It’s neat, you’ll see.

This is version 1.0 and we have some cool stuff lined up for the next revisions. Love to hear any feedback.

    But does it scrobble live like the jailbreak app?

    <i>But will it scrobble?</i>

    Winner.

    Also: I can’t find it in the music section of the UK app store.

    If this is a fully working last.fm app, I can finally unjailbreak my iPod!

    The app scrobbles what you listen to via Last.fm but unfortunately there’s no possibility for scrobbling normal iPod plays. Apple are not allowing background applications which means we can’t run while the built in media player is running. We’re trying to work with them to get around this, but for the short term we’re focused on making the Last.fm desktop software scrobble iPhone and iPod Touch plays (it should work pretty good right now).

    You know how we keep telling you that you guys rock? It’s mainly because you rock. This is fantastic… now all I need is to find some money to afford the iPhone in the first place.

    Also, someone should point out that the app is free. Just because…

    Ah now, that’s nice.

    I really like the ‘play in software’ link from Safari to the app itself – intuitive enough to keep your average Apple user happy.

    There seemed to be a fair number of backward steps to get from a track, in a list, in a menu… back to the starting point. It looks like it might be quicker to hit the Home button and relaunch the app if you’re trying to get back to your own user page on the app.

    Love your work, including a neat video to introduce it. Now, if only I could get my hands on an iPhone…

    13 July, 21:23

    Just to clarify, this app WILL scrobble anything that you listen to through the app? (Just not “normal” iPod plays.)

    Whatever, I’ll be downloading this immediately. I paid £2.99 for the OK-ish Tuner application (which gives you access to a wide range of internet feeds), but none of them can match the power of being able to listen to my Last.fm stations in my pocket :)

    This is genius… and the price is most definitely right!

    StudleyUK – 13 July, 21:23
  10. jd
    13 July, 21:30

    if you can’t scrobble in real-time is there any way to access a list of songs played by the ipod and send those when the app is started? is such a list even kept? just an idea.

    Really cool, and thanks, but a couple of questions … why did you change the red of the icon, looks weird.
    Also, I never thought I would say this about a jailbroken app, but at least what you can see from the screenshots, maybe their ui looks nicer.

    What a great idea I wish I had bought a Touch instead of a Classic now, it looks like the CBS funding is being spent in all the right places, which is good.

    James – 13 July, 22:24
  16. Kee
    13 July, 22:26

    Umm. What’s your expectation on this app wrt to EDGE. Because so far I’m on the first song it’s playing, and I’ve spent a good 5 or 6 minutes buffering… once at the beginning of the song, and then a few more in the middle… whoops, make that three times.

    Kee – 13 July, 22:26
  17. Russ Garrett
    13 July, 22:31

    For those who are saying the icons are orange: it’s just your screen, they’re definitely red on the iPhone itself.

    @Kee: I guess this app shows off how good your wireless capability actually is. We require 128kbps of bandwidth to stream, which is realistically on the upper end of what EDGE can provide (and that’s if your mobile provider has a perfect network). I guess you need 3G (or WiFi) to get decent streaming.

    Scrobbling from the desktop app works pretty poorly for me, actually. It picks and chooses what and when it wants to scrobble, skipping whole swaths of music, making it look like I would only listen to one or two songs, when in reality I had listened continuously over many days of one-hour commutes each way. I would love it if this could scrobble whatever the iPod plays or even if this could access the songs database inside the iPhone/Touch so that music could also be scrobbled.

    Pandora plays pretty well over EDGE, so if this cannot perform, I’ll have to stick with Pandora.

    Ernie Oporto – 13 July, 23:00
  19. smarmy
    13 July, 23:02

    I wonder if this app is able to read the contents of the recently played playlist?

  20. robotplague
    13 July, 23:09

    Thanks for making this! I seriously am loving it. I would love the ability to write in people’s shout boxes on top of the scrobbling songs played on your iPod (which I know has been brought up a bunch already).

    God, this is such a minor thing I can’t believe I’m actually bringing it up. But I’m disappointed with the app icon! It’s fatter and a little spooky (definitely not the official one you guys use everywhere). I love the way the official logo looks but the app version is a little…off. I also wish it was on your traditional pink background and not it’s current orange/red color. Why is it different?

    Love you guys either way =)

  22. Riddle
    13 July, 23:35

    Great work!

    Is there a way for checking number of iPod’s plays without using the desktop app? I guess there’s some kind of a db keeping info about amount of plays – iTunes uses it. If you could extract it every time you launch Last.fm.app… we could have scrobbling on demand. The biggest drawback is that iTunes counts track as played after you listen from 0 to 100%, not 50%.

    If there’s no way for doing it officially, I think I’ll have to pass on non-jailbroken 2.0 software. I hope Sam will deliver app for jailbroken devices (iPhone 3G-less) too.

    Nonetheless you rock Sam! :)

    Fantastic, Canadian iPhone owners thank you for giving us a streaming music solution. I saw the preview video last week and was floored by the depth of functionality you have put it. I’ll be sure to let everybody with an iPhone know that this is a must download. Certainly one of the top apps on iPhone/iPod Touch.

    I can’t seem to login — I just tried the same credentials on the website and it worked but it’s giving me login error on the iPhone. (I’ve tried typing it a dozen times now…no go.)

    Am I missing something?

    Neilcar – 14 July, 03:01

    After you hit “similar Artist” how do you swith back to listing to the artist you are searching for? I accidentally hit Similar artist and I can’t get out of that mode now, I even tried uninstalling and redownloaing the program. Some instructions for the app somewhere would be helpful for people new to last.fm

    14 July, 05:41

    as for a jailbreak version, that’s how this app started, google for MobileScrobbler and you’ll find the jailbreak version (which is much better, since it played in the background and scrobbled your itunes stuff too). I just hope development keeps up with both… Still, this app shows what a good iphone app should be! (and of course shows the weakness of some of the SDK terms)

    As for playing on slower connections, ooTunes will transcode on the fly down to match your bandwidth (last.fm streams included). It’s not free, and I wrote it (full disclosure) but it does other stuff to.

    14 July, 08:23

    @stefan

    The jailbreak app does scrobble normal iphone/ipod songs because it’s not using the official Apple API, thus it is able to run background processes.

    if you can’t scrobble in real-time is there any way to access a list of songs played by the ipod and send those when the app is started? is such a list even kept? just an idea.

    I agree with @jd’s suggestion

    Vera – 14 July, 08:23
  46. RiotGrrrlCS
    14 July, 08:31

    To all the people complaining: It can’t scrobble because iphone’s system doesn’t allow for scrobbling without it being jailbroken, it’s not the last.fm software developers fault that it won’t scrobble.

    Not available in the Portuguese store…. :((( C’mon iTunes…there are people living outside of the US, Canada, Uk, Germany, Spain and France, too…

    Great to see this! Huge props – it’s a beautifully designed iPhone interface.

    I do think, however, that you should update the blog post to point out that the streamed radio is effectively 3G only. I’m in central London with an iPhone v1 and it takes way too long to listen to anything. I’ve read that the Pandora app works reasonably well over Edge so that’s a bit disappointing.

    Oh and I clicked the bio link at the bottom of the Similar Artists screen for Kraftwerk and got the bio for Yello!

    Nice app! Totally new to me.

    Problem on my new iPhone 3G (no jailbreak etc):
    the app is totally unusable, because it crashes permanently. Mostly after some seconds of playback, sometimes while connecting to the server.
    It just terminates.

    Any Idea how to solve this problem?

    Shame to see the actual mobile scrobbling ability has been lost. It’s my one reason for not upgrading just yet. I’ll stick to the jailbreak version, in the hope that a hacked v2 will allow me to continue using the scrobbling version.

    What about the “Apple Push Notification Service” that was announced at WWDC 2008? Doesn’t that helps situations like this?

    Thanks for all the feedback guys. We’re looking at rolling out in other locations, and will keep you up to date.

    Unfortunately, scrobbling iPod plays is technically impossible with the Apple SDK. Having no background apps means we can’t run while the media player is running.

    We’re continuing to test the app and working on a new release. Stability is our #1 objective. Fixes will come soon.

    Hey last.fm, great app!

    I think you guys could start a petition, a forum, or a signup sheet that will let appple know how many last.fm users would like the ability to run last.fm as a background application (to allow scrobbling among other things). Last.fm has a huge following – I think it could happen.

  73. gwalla
    14 July, 17:57

    @Toby Padilla: the inability to run background processes prevents it from scrobbling AS YOU PLAY through the iPod media player. But what people are suggesting is that the app read the iTunesDB and scrobble all tracks played since the last time, just like when you sync and iPod with iTunes and the audioscrobbler plugin. This wouldn’t require Last.FM to operate at the same time as the media player. Is iTunesDB also off limits?

    I’m very interested to try out this app. I’m in Ireland. When you distribute the app to the AppStore does Apple give you an option to distribute to a subset of country local iTunes AppStores ? Here in Ireland we are clueless to why there are no games available since 2.0 launch of iPhone/iPod touch. Apple seem to say it is because the developers have chosen not to distribute to certain markets. In the case of LastFM what is the hurdle which is currently preventing you getting the app to Ireland’s store (Austria.. and other markets also)…

    Wow, iPhone is out there for a few days and here it is – official Last.fm client.

    Symbian, and more precisely S60 has been there for years, on many devices, more people own it, and yet there is no app for S60. Not even a single unofficial application.

    That sucks.

    Very interesting so far! I’ve got dial-up availability only at home
    so this is my first taste of Last.fm radio. I also only have Edge in my area right now. One day’s tests and the result is: it performed well standing still (and sounded great too), but driving in the car I never got through an entire song without it rebuffering or crashing.

    Oh, did I mention I love Last.fm? What a great service, even without all the extras I can’t use right now!

    One large bug… occuring on 3G and EDGE

    If you begin listening to a station, and your screen locks (i.e. turns black after a few minutes to save power) the station will not load the next track. You have to wake your phone by pressing the home button, and then it will load the next track…

    Not sure if this is just on my iPhone… anyone else seeing this problem?

    15 July, 14:13

    Just a thought, but can’t you just have this app read the iphone/ipod recently played tracks playlist and scrobble those, in the same way you would on the desk top? That way, although it can’t scrobble in the background as you listen, it at least can do as soon as you start up the client on your ipod/iphone, negating a need to even sync.

    zerolight – 15 July, 14:13
  93. Toby Padilla

    Unfortunately the iPhone SDK does not allow applications to access the iPod play data. We’re able to do it with the desktop client by going through iTunes.

    Ok, I will be the first to admit I am not completely up to date on developer specifications, but would it be possible to play the music through the Last.FM software? That way, it’s not running in the background, but n the contrary, the iPod is running in the background. Since Apple is allowing it’s own software to be running as a background app, could you use that as an advantage?

    16 July, 23:22

    for everyone above that loves the “official” last.fm client, i have to ask you… are you out of your minds?

    apple’s restrictions on the official SDK have made this application pretty much worthless on the original iphone. you can’t stream music over EDGE and you can’t scrobble your iPod plays. the best thing about the jailbreak version, mobilescrobbler, was the ability to scrobble iPod tracks in real-time over EDGE.

    if any of you had ever tried mobilescrobbler, you would hate this official app as much as i do.

    i understand it’s not last.fm’s fault or sam’s fault, but apple’s. i can only hope and pray that sam will continue development on mobilescrobbler once the jailbreak is out for 2.0, but i don’t have high hopes.

    rob – 16 July, 23:22
  109. k
    17 July, 05:46

    Ditto what everyone’s saying about live scrobbling. Mobile Scrobbler was pretty much the sole reason I jailbreaked (broke?) in the first place, and this new official app was the only reason I upgraded to 2.0. 99.9% of all of my scrobbles were from MS. This is a major bummer.

    This app is absolutely genius! Pretty much perfect in every way but one…

    It can’t run in the background..You need to be able to keep listening whilst checking your e-mail or surfing the web.

    Is it because of the SDK restrictions that the app behaves this way?

    Nick – 17 July, 09:23
  112. Jan
    17 July, 09:45

    First of all, I think Sam has done a great job with the official app, and as this is just the first release, it’ll get even better and more stable over time.

    However, I prefer to wait for the jailbreak for 2.0 to be able to continue live scrobbling on my device. Perhaps Sam will release a modified version of the official app for jailbroken devices himself, but if he doesn’t: Don’t worry, MobileScrobbler is Open Source…

    17 July, 12:09

    First off, excellent app, and way to get it done in time for the launch. Having it ready by the launch of the app store should make a huge difference as there will surely be a lot of competition (Pandora to name one).

    As expected there are some bugs with it. I am using it on the iPhone 1st Gen and it works well, but it does have its share of crashes. It might be that I am on a VPN network, but it is a very very fast one. I’m sure more time will allow for more feedback and better polish of the overall stability. Also, I can get Pandora to work over Edge in the car, but LastFM not so much. I am assuming that it’s because of the amount of additional data that gets carried over the network along with the music. Keep up the great work! And I know come September Apple will allow for background notifications etc, so maybe we will see a change in the ability to use it while doing other tasks, something Apple used as a sales pitch at the release of 1.0.

    I would love to have a “Night” mode for this app, so I can put the iTouch in the dock and set it to night mode and it will shutdown in at a certian time (or after any amount of time 30min, 1hr etc.) and will not show the cover art, just a black screen with music, so I don’t have a glowing screen keeping me awake all night.

    Steve – 17 July, 16:02
  116. Cananito
    17 July, 20:15

    Something that would be aswome is an app like the last.fm software, so when you hear a track on the iphone/touch, it gets sent to last.fm, this will be really hard I guess tough…

    Cananito – 17 July, 20:15
  117. John B.
    17 July, 20:16

    Things might be different after September, when Apple allows persistent data connections. There may be code which allows some kind of data transfers in the background that would allow scrobbling, but you know… don’t hold your breath,

    Hey, this is an awesome app! It was one of the first things I got after updating my Touch. It really is a bummer that you can’t scrobble actual tracks from your library, but it’s still an awesome idea for you to still be able to scrobble with the last.fm radio from your iPod. I hear there is a way to scrobble the Touch with the last.fm software, but I haven’t quite figured it out yet. It will be very convenient once I figure that out. And I’m sure in the (hopefully near) future you guys will figure out how to deal with Apple’s thing about not being able to run apps in the background! ;) Great job, guys! Really appreciate all the effort!

    I really hope that Apple will make a few exceptions to their ‘no background aps’ and ‘no media access’ rules in the SDK. This app is the perfect reason for why it should not be universal, but I respect that a review process should probably be involved.

    This would be great to have in Denmark. Come on, please! We are allowed to use the website, why not this neat app? :)

    Last.fm for iPhone is just useless in its current state. It keeps logging me out every now and then, so I can barely use the application for longer than 5 minutes. Having to log in multiple times in an hour is pain in the neck.

  138. Derick Valadao
    21 July, 00:18

    After about a week of (trying) to use the program I thought I’d echo some feedback in this area.

    1) Streaming: Takes a fairly long time. While I can accept the initial channel buffer, is there any reason why the application can’t pre-buffer the next track after the entire track currently playing finishes loading? Also, maybe you could offer an option to lower the bitrate on different networks to aid streaming loads and data use.

    2) Log-outs/Time-outs: When the application does not crash, it tends to time out and force you to log back into last.fm in order to continue playing music on the service. This is a major annoyance which has been echoed in many reviews. Not only does it stop the playback, but it forces the user to input login info again.

    3) Crashes: Obviously you guys are aware of the many crashes occurring. I’ll list off instances under which I experience crashes in case anybody has not yet listed them: – Starting up (rare) – Tag searching – Loading a channel – Switching tracks – Buffering a new track – Buffering a track mid-play

    That’s about it. Now for some positive feedback :)

    The events tab is incredibly well done. Very descriptive and accurate. I especially love the counter in the tabs which will automatically tell you if, in fact, events are associated with that artist. Really well done and it really sets you apart from Pandora’s application.

    The bio tab is excellent. Very readable and very much appreciated. One of my favourite parts of last.fm is reading the artist bios. Thank you very much for adding that in.

    The sharing is very well implemented. I love how easy it is to choose which friends I will share a track with.

    I like that similar artists are sorted by relevance. It’s a great visual tool to discover new artists, influences, and styles just by looking at the similar artists tab.

    The interface is quite nice.

    Some possible future additions (which you doubtless have thought up) for after the stability issues are cleaned up.

    1. Shout-box integration: this one speaks for itself… it would be awesome

    2. Tag clouds or some way of discovering what is popular on the service at the time.

    3. Location awareness: it would be neat to know what people near you are interested in.

    Thanks for the great service and I hope to see the iPhone/iPod Touch app reach its potential. I look forward to using my iPhone’s storage space for movies and podcasts as opposed to music because I much prefer music discovery and sharing to sticking to what I already know.

    Thanks,
    -Derick.

    It’s a pity it doesn’t scrobble. Will that be possible in the future? I understand that Apple doesn’t allow apps to run in the background.

    Scrobbling does not matter. Get the software which will detect your device off of iTunes and scrobble when you sync. There are far more important things to worry about with this app than the fact that you can’t scrobble until plugging in your device. Besides, it’s simply not their fault that Apple is limiting their SDK to prevent background processes at the moment.

    22 July, 11:24

    Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! Keep it coming :)

    We’ve got another version of the app waiting for approval from Apple. This fixes a ton of bugs and makes buffering much faster. Hopefully this should be approved very soon, but we’ve been hearing reports of very long queue for Apple to approve at the moment.

    Also of note was the timeouts and streaming weirdness that occurred when the new Last.fm website launched. There was a ton of load on the system and it freaked out web services. Most if not all of this should be fixed by now.

    Derick Valadao – awesome stuff! Great suggestions and finds.

    As for background scrobbling the iPod, it’s just not possible with the Apple SDK. All I can suggest is asking Apple (nicely ;) for a solution.

    Right now, we have to stick to the initial country list. There’s a lot of issues to work around there. It’s unfortunate but true. We’ll let you know ASAP if this changes.

    Thanks for the shout out. I happened to discover another little tidbit last night. It seems that by turning off scrobbling altogether on the settings reduces the rate at which the app crashes. In fact, last.fm has not crashed once since I tested this out. I’m not sure if anybody else knows about this one since I haven’t read anything about it.

    Thanks for the update on the status of the application. I’ve been hearing about Apple’s long approval process as well. Some apps seem to get updated quicker than others (read: Facebook) and so it might be the nature of the service defines where it gets put in the queue.

    I have tested the new Version right now. On my iPhone it keeps crashing again, when it starts to play a song ;-(

    Any solution??

    it’s not available in “Saudi Arabia” App Store :(

    this is really frustrating, i need last.fm on my iPhone so badly…

    i hope it show up ASAP, with a bunch of other cool apps that has country restriction for no clear reason, i mean i can use last.fm while I’m in Saudi Arabia, it’s not like hulu.com that requires U.S resident..

    Anyhow, keep the great work up.. n spread the music love :D

    I was fooled. Updgraded to 2.0 when I heard last.fm app is finally out. Been using jailbroken 1.14 iPod all this while. Now, I’m without any means to listem to last.fm on my iPod.

    Boohoooohoo… Hurry up and come over to Japan’s App store!

    Hi,

    Thanks for the app and site! I was a longtime user of MobileScrobbler on my iPhone 2G, and am using the new AppStore client on my new iPhone 3G. I do really miss the background scrobbling though…. I’m hoping that the jailbreak version gets ported to 2.0 (the source code is out there if any programmers feel like it ;-). I had one thought… if it has been mentioned and I missed it, forgive me for saying it again. Is it perhaps a possibility to have a media player built into the Last.fm client so that you could play your music on the iPhone, and scrobble at the same time with the same App? I don’t know if this is even something that the SDK would begin to allow you to do, but I thought I’d at least mention it!

    Thanks again!

    I have used the LastFM scrobbler on a jailbreaked ipod touch for months with great joy, it’s realy a nice product. Now after updating to 2.0 I can’t install it since it’s missing in the danish appstore.
    Please add it to the danish appstore !

    iScrobbler 2.2 for Mac now does scrobbling for iPhones and iPod touches when you plug it in!

    So we don’t need it added to the mobile client. (otherwise it will double up the scrobbles)

    Lyrics support for the currently playing track would be great though.

    New Zealand Please!
    I use last.fm all the time.
    My iPhone is jailbroken, so I can use the mobilescrobbler app, as I used to, but I’d need to get installer.app on it again, and it’s a hassle. Would prefer the proper app through the iTunes app store…
    Patiently awaiting this app in the NZ store :)
    Cheers.

    Since jailbreak is out you can install insomnia to keep the net connection alive. I’ve been doing that and it works (when the app is not crashing I mean).

    Also, as I’m from Portugal, I had to create a US iTunes account to install the app. I googled an US hotel and used that address ;)

    Hope that helps

    Crasing frecuenly. Don’t do scrobing, and don’t put the cover album on wallpaper. The mobile scrober for 1.1.4 firmware is better.

    I don’t care if it’s not localized!
    Why cannot we have it in our store too?
    That’s simply disturbing.

    Got it from UK store althought I primarely live and use the program in Finland. Very Bugy Program. Once in a while it works for a one song and sometimes it really messes up my 3g connection.

    I am in the ones that are waiting for the 2.0 mobile scrobbler also. (But will it be done ever?)

    Great work guys! There’s apparently a lot of interest in getting the iPhone client to scrobble plays from our own iTunes libraries and to that end I’ve got an idea.

    There’s an app called MixMeister Scratch that lets you scratch over the top of your iTunes library music. You open the app, and then actually select the song from your library and add little sounds (I’m no good at it), but the interesting part is that if the Last.fm client could do something similar, then you could open the Last.fm client on the iPhone and use it in place of the regular music app when you wanted to scrobble.

    If you could select playlists, artists, etc. from your own library from within the client, then you’ve defeated the background process restrictions and offered the full last.fm experience at the same time, complete with scrobbling.

    Just a thought. I’d love to be able to scrobble on the go. Keep up the great work!

    Please continue your international support.

    I just installed an app on my Pwn’d iPhone in Cydia, called “Scrobble” by Tony Hoyle. All it does is scrobble like MobileScrobbler did, so I would suggest you recommend it as an additional install for those who used the jailbroken app and want to be able to scrobble on OS 2.0.

    Request for the next major version – functionality similar to Simplify whereby you can access your entire home music library, play it back on the iPhone, have it scrobble and therefore add tracks into your Last.FM library. That would be amazing.

    Most applications in the Dutch Appstore are in English. Besides, I personally prefer applications in English and I guess many Dutch do as well.
