Hello,
Since the iPhone OS 4.0 is released, is there going to be a background scrobbling in the next Albums version?
I would like to continue listening to music AND scrobble when I quit the app.
Thanks a lot =)

That would be cool. Unfortunately multitasking in iOS 4 doesn't work like that - once in the background, Albums doesn't receive track change notifications, or get a chance to ping last.fm.

It may be possible to do this by abandoning the connection with the iPod music player, but I think that would be an annoying change for lots of users.

If I could put w couple of my favorite albums in Albums and duplicate them from my iPod library by doing so or by keeping my favorite albums n Albums only, I would do it. In Canada, Last.fm is not available. I don't know if even Last.fm can scrobble in the background. Albums only need a couple of features to make it as usable as my primary music player and if they would come, putting music files only in albums would not be problematic.
