iTunes Scrobbling

This is a script developed by a fellow Universal Scrobbler user, drailskid. It is an iTunes Applescript plugin which automatically scrobbles any selected tracks in iTunes to your account when it is run. It will work as long as there is a keychain entry in the default keychain with the name "" with your username and password. If you're not familiar with AppleScripts in iTunes, you can read about them here.

Props to drailskid for this script and for sharing his hard work! Similarly, if you have any US-related scripts/online tools you'd be happy to share, please pass them on to me. Library Scrobbling

Coming soon (hopefully!)

Thanks for using the Universal Scrobbler! It's great that so many people are using it so regularly.

I'm considering making a mobile version of the tool, which should be a lot easier to use. But this wouldn't come without a lot of time & effort on my part. I'm wondering - would people be willing to pay a small one-off/monthly/yearly fee to use a mobile version?

I would love to improve the Universal Scrobbler (including fixing other bugs too, like the "&" issue) but want to know it's going to be worth my time! Hope you understand and would really appreciate your honest feedback. Please leave comments on the Universal Scrobbler group's shoutbox to let me know what you think.

Cheers, Cam

Disclaimer: I believe in having accurate stats. It's this belief that gave birth to tools like this. However, they do have the potential to be misused (e.g. boosting artist stats). Please only scrobble songs that you have geniunely listened to. If you don't feel you can adhere to this rule, please leave this tool alone. I don't condone any other use of these tools.
