    I know the stock music player on the Incredible isn't the most robust, but I love how Last.FM can scrobble the music I play on it. Do any of the 3rd party music player apps do the same?

    How do you set it to scrobble? Where do you login to Last.FM??

    Btunes scrobbles. The developer stopped working on it tho.. Its still a great program tho, some people in android apps forums saying there are having issues with it so buy with caution.

    When you run the app for the first time it should ask you to log in. If you don't have an account already you'll need to register first. Once there it should default to scrobble what you play on the stock Android player.

    After looking in the settings for Last.FM it looks like it can scrobble anything off the stock player and any apps that use the ScrobbleDroid API or the Simple Last.fm Scrobbler API. Just need to figure out which ones use them.

    I believe when you install the last.fm app and set your account on it, it scrobbles the stock music player by default. You can apparently do it with other players if you use this [url=""http://code.google.com/p/a-simple-lastfm-scrobbler/]Simple last.fm Scrobbler[/url], but I haven't actually tried this yet.

    Yeah, I was just about to come back and post about Simple Last.FM.

    Anybody have any experience with the following players?

    Haha, I'm looking for a response too. Guess this is the forum's way of saying try it yourself. I'm gonna check on Android.com to see which has the highest rating then maybe I'll start downloading some

    bTunes scrobbles and is a great program, just no developer support any more. I hate cubed.. seems very clunky to me, and I dont think it scrobbles.. MixZing is ok too, its not the most visually appealing player, but it scrobbles.

    MixZing - via the Scrobble Droid app. -the one im currently using, because it detects internal storage. Works.
    Cubed (aka 3) - via Simple Last.fm Scrobbler, or Scrobble Droid
    DoubleTwist - I see no options for scrobbling at all

    I tried Meridian and can't get it to locate any of the music on my SD card.

    I'll have to give MixZing and Cubed a shot later. Scrobbling seems to be at the top of everybodies wishlist so maybe they'll add it down the road.

    On a side note. Support and Troubleshooting seems like an odd forum for this.

    Figured out my issue with Meridian and I think I'm gonna use that one. I like Cubed but the widgets for it kinda suck and I don't like that you can only repeat a song and not the whole album. Meridian works well and has a pretty nice widget.
