New MyStrands Social Player adds scrobbling support for S60 and S40 devices

I love using my Nokia N95-3 S60 device and find I use it every day for podcast downloading and playing. I also use it to listen to music, primarily downloaded from my Yahoo! Music subscription. I signed up for Last.fm, but have to admit I haven't used it that much primarily because I still haven't spent the time to figure out what it is all about. I understand it is a service that keeps track of the music you listen to and then helps to personalize it for you. Rudy De Waele sent me an email to let me know that a major update to the MyStrands Social Player for S60 and S40 devices was just released.

New MyStrands Social Player adds scrobbling support for S60 and S40 devices

MyStrands is a social recommendation and discovery service and with this latest mobile client you can now scrobble tracks to Last.fm. Scrobbling a song means that when you listen to it, the name of the song is sent to Last.fm and added to your music profile. This data is used to organize and recommend songs, create personalized radio stations, and more.

Version 3.1 of the MyStrands Social Player works with S60 3rd Edition and J2ME (optimized for S40) devices and is available for free. I plan to download it soon since I have been stuck in a rut of listening to many of the same tunes over and over and would like to broaden my music listening collection a bit. This new version comes with an overhauled UI as well.
