Simple Scrobbler



This project is unfortunately in a bit of a limbo. The app works, and is available on Google Play, but I don't have the time to maintain it on my own.

If anyone wants to take part in developing this app further, I'm looking for contributors. Please email me, or just fork and code away.

Pull requests are very welcome!

WARNING! Some android devices have special battery settings that will disable SLS scrobbling entirely or just when SLS is closed. Example Please note that some of the following applications require changing their default settings to enable scrobbling.

(b) It presents itself to SLS as the Android Music Player. This means that it won't show up under "Enabled apps" under its real name, but under Android Music Player.
