I have been busy with a number of projects lately, one of them being a Last.FM client for Leopard called ”SimpleScrobbler”. It is written in Objective-C 2.0 and uses Cocoa and all the goodies that come with Xcode/Interface Builder.
The app was designed to be “Simple”, no bells, no whistles. There is only one time you should ever have to do anything… right when the app starts for the first time, you will have to enter your Last.FM membership name and password and you are good. It is a status bar app (the bar up by the clock on OS X) and everything you might need is in there. SimpleScrobbler gets rid of the “Love” and “Ban” features of other Last.FM clients, as well as ditching Last.FM radio to maintain a “Simple” functionality – send your iTunes tracks to Last.FM.
SimpleScrobbler is event driven, listening to system notifications from iTunes to avoid spin-waiting and memory consumption.
If you want to try out SimpleScrobbler, get a free Last.FM account, download and install SimpleScrobbler, and start keeping stats on your Music!


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
