Works well, but one "feature" really miffed me
I've been using this app for a number of months and it works well for me. Clean and simple, all I need.
Only complaint that I have is with an anti-piracy measure the developer has taken. If the copy is not genuine, the app will scrobble every track played as a single Nickleback song. I appreciate a good joke as much as the next guy, but I happen to stumble upon this when one of my computers' App Store session expired. I lost a few HUNDRED tracks scrobbled to this because it thought the copy was not genuine due to the time out. How about instead of being "cute" or "passive-aggressive", you actually warn your genuine users that there was a problem authenticating the software. All it took was a simple reauth and relaunch... Minus two stars for the transparency, unfortunately.
This app definitely does work, and it does take its simplicity very seriously. I feel that it takes it TOO seriously, though. There is literally no options menu, so, say, the ability to have the app run on start-up is absent, as are a lot of other features that one would expect from a scrobbler. All in all, SimpleScrobbler scrobbles, and does it wel, but has almost and does almost nothing else. That was obviously the goal of the developer, but I disagree with their design philosophy.
I’ve been using this little app for a while now. Works well as advertised, less connectivity issues than the native app too (in my experience).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
