Last.fm for Windows Phone finally goes to Mango

Good new everyone! Last.fm, everyone's favorite radio scrobble service has finally gone to Mango with version 3.x. You can now minimize this bad boy in the background and enjoy your radio with multitasking Mango goodness. In addition, you can pin your favorite radio stations to the Start screen for easy and quick access.

We've only played with it for a little bit but darn it all, it's a nice app--fast, smooth and great work on the integrating "Sharing" option. And considering this service is built into the Xbox 360 (for Gold Members), this a great extension to your phone. Grab the free app here in the Marketplace.

Thanks, Lerimer S., for the heads up!

Last.fm for Windows Phone finally goes to Mango


Exactly?Totally useless for me if thats not working.And this app is not available in the Swedish Marketplace. :(

you don't.... it doesn't scrobble?! If windows phone is to compete, you'd at least expect a similar level of functionality to other phones, but no. no scrobbling. wtf?

WHY THIS APP IS NOT AVAILABLE IN FRANCE ??? This is insane.The LastFm service is available in France on a regular basis and I am a French subscriber. So why the app can't be available in France ?!Even 8tracks that let you stream music is available worldwide. So don't tell it's a copyright problem.

Microsoft isn't just doing any efforts. That's all. And later they will compalin that WP7 isn't popular. This is becoming ridiculous.All they can do is US centric apps.

Update appears to have broken the app... now it just sits at the "Loading..." screen forever.

You can't pause from the pop-up media controls when you exit the app. You have to go back into the app to stop the music from playing! This is a major bug.

I wish I understood how Last.fm worked. Oh well, I have my app for slacker, which I moved to after Pandora went all anti-Windows phone.P.S. - The "likes" on this article don't seem to be working.

Actually I don't care about the radio. I need a scrobbler, the only thing I miss from Android... maybe I have to ask elsewhere.
