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.

(a) Uses the Scrobble Droid API - identifies under "Enabled apps" as "Scrobble Droid Apps".

(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.

Known compatible devices

Note. SLS should work on any device that can install it, and that can run one of the music apps above.
