What's New in Version 2.0.1
[+] Last.FM Authentication Bug Resolved
[+] Minor bug fixes
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).
