I love to know which songs I’ve been listening to the most, the trouble is I rarely plug my iPhone into iTunes anymore thanks to having iTunes Match all set up. Thankfully CloudScrob has come to save the day.
Available on the App Store at 69p, CloudScrob updates your online profile without ever syncing to a computer. Each time you open it, CloudScrob scans your music library looking for updated play counts, then notifies you and sends them to Last.fm, perfect.
In the settings you can get CloudScrob to confirm what song will be submitted and remove songs you prefer people not to see, I have a lullaby album on my iPhone for my little boy that doesn’t need to be sent so it’s nice to remove that. You can also choose to scrobble Audiobooks and Podcasts if you wish. CloudScrob will also save your scrobbles while you are offline and submit them later for you.
You do need to make sure that you have fully listened to a song though, hopefully in the future Apple will give you the choice to specify that after a certain percentage of song has been played to register as fully played, we’ll have to wait and see about that.
That’s it! It’s a simple but very useful app for iPhone users who want to know who they listen to the most. Scrobble away….
