Simple Last.fm Scrobbler (and Libre.fm and Listen Brainz and Custom Personal Servers)
Simple Last.fm Scrobbler (SLS) is a simple app that scrobbles music listened to on an Android phone. Scrobbling means submitting listening information to Last.fm (and optionally/additionally Libre.fm and Listen Brainz) when you play a track, and you can then get music recommendations and view you listening history and statistics at Last.fm.
Before the release of a new version of SLS, it will be available here to test for one week in the Beta Testing Versions link.
More info about scrobbling can be found on Last.fm's FAQ.
