    Hi all.

    Last.FM is moving to a subscription service for portable devices - which means you now have to pay for something you have been getting free for X many years. :(

    Anyway, Android is telling me there are updates available and one of them is for Last.FM. After doing a little research, it seems if you update, you will then have to subscribe and pay for the service, if you just never update, it will continue to be free. :D

    Is there anyway to stop the application from checking for updates, or blocking the application from being updated so I can use the Android Market 'Update All' function - where as at the moment I need to select everything but Last.FM to update. :rolleyes:

    Are you sure on that? I doubt the application itself can allow a free service if you are not subscribed. The subscription is at user account level.

    Anyway, in answer to your question, no.

    With the latest market, being rooted AND having an application which removes apps from the market (Disassociates from the market), the new market still keeps adding it back.

    Listening to it right now ;)

    Others who have updated have said they now have to subscribe to continue listening to the service on a potable device.

    I also received an email stating that the service is now a premium subscriber service.
