Last.FM on Windows Mobile

Fantastic news for any last.fm and Windows Mobile users out there (like me: http://www.last.fm/user/MI77) you can now scrobble tracks from your mobile device. Thanks to Jason Langridge for the link!

Seeing as I listen to music on my phone more than anywhere else (usually walking to work) this is something I’ve wanted to do for ages!

Now all I need to do is get the WMP team to add Played Count synchronisation to WMP Mobile, and (as I’ve mentioned before) get them to make the ‘A’ key work on my S620… I’m going to go out on a limb and say that I prefer WMP Mobile to the iPod interface. My opinion in general of the iPod is that it’s a great gadget but it has a horrible interface (not to mention iTunes). It may be personal preference, but I usually want to listen to a specific track, or queue up a few songs before I leave the house and while I’m on the way. Searching for  a specific song in WMP is easy:

Go into My Music and All Music (3 button presses, 2 of which are the same button):

Then start typing on the keypad – here S T I :

Brilliant. Finding a single song on the iPod is so hard! You can get a list of all the songs on the device, but scrolling through a few hundred, let along thousands of songs is a pain. Or you can filter by genre (most of my songs seem to be ‘Rock’, even James Taylor’s latest is classified as rock…), then artist and then album. I can’t remember what album most of my tracks are from, especially when I’ve ripped compilations and media player has assigned them the original album’s details…

Rant over, thanks for the link Jason, and everyone can keep track of my musical experiences here: http://www.last.fm/user/MI77
