I think the best feature of is the “Scrobbler” — the service that collects your listening information across multiple devices and apps and collates it into your personal listening profile. The Scrobbler tracks information about which songs you play and how often, which songs you like the most, how much you’ve played a specific artist over a certain period of time and other similar data. By comparing data about different combinations of songs and artists played by millions of listeners worldwide, is able to make finely tuned suggestions of other artists and songs you might enjoy based on your listening history.

Having a account is required in order to access the scrobbling features, but the app’s registration process is simple and painless.

With more than 600 apps and devices, you can add your listening history from almost any device and or music app. The homepage of your account will show the artists in your library, a selection of suggested artists based on your listening habits and additional sections.

App Mechanics

I found the site interactive and easy to navigate, but things started getting sticky when I spent time with the mobile apps. The Android app’s most-recent update was in November of 2013, and the clunky and inelegant UI, combined with multiple user-reported crashes, means the Internet radio features of are largely inapplicable for me. Similarly, the iOS app (Scrobbler for iOS), which was last updated in January of 2014, is not up to the UI standards of similar music apps, and the features are little more than basic.

Users report they are enjoying the scrobbling features of both apps but are lukewarm — at best — about the music player features. Many users stated that they only keep the app active on their devices for the scrobbling features in order to link their listening preferences to their account, but the frustration with multiple crashes and no updates to support newer operating systems has led them to other apps for their music-player needs.

General: ** (two-star rating)

With multiple reports of users experiencing crashes and many reports of difficulty using the app with newer mobile devices or once upgrading to a newer OS, it’s clear that to remain relevant needs to spend some time upgrading its mobile apps.

UI: **

With so many apps available for mobile devices, a clean, interactive, user-friendly UI is essential. Unfortunately, the apps for both Android and iOS are painfully out of date. They are still functional, if utilitarian, but don’t offer much beyond the basics.

Overall: **

The scrobbling features of are fantastic, and having a place where my listening history can be collected and integrated from all my devices is something I haven’t found with any other service. On the other hand, to remain relevant amid a sea of listening apps, must spend some time updating its mobile apps and providing more seamless access to its users. is available free for Android on Google Play and Apple iOS. It’s also available (and probably best) in a browser format.
