SimpleScrobbler is a Last.fm scrobbler without all the bells and whistles. A Mac App that lives in your status bar and leaves a smaller footprint on your computer.
SimpleScrobbler gives you:
[+] Simplicity. SimpleScrobbler has one purpose: Scrobble your tracks.
[+] Silence. Scrobbles your tracks silently from the status bar. We won't bug you. Ever.
[+] Vigilance. Watches your playlist like a hawk. If you listened to it, we scrobbled it.
[+] Reliability. It just works. Everytime. If you are offline, your scrobbles will be queued until they can be sent.
SimpleScrobbler doesn't give you:
[-] Love track functionality.
[-] Ban track functionality.
[-] Streaming, sharing, playlists, recommendations, neighbors, profiles or any of the other bloatware found in other Last.fm apps.

Simplescrobbler is awesome - I set it up as a Login item so it starts whenever I restart my computer. I never have had to mess with it at all after logging in the first time, and it just works. With the original Last.fm app, I was constantly having to check it because it stopped scrobbling, or scrobbled multiple copies of my tracks. After a few days of monitoring SimpleScrobbler, I have yet to see any issues. Recommended!
Simply doesn’t work. - I paid for and downloaded SimpleScrobbler last week and it has yet to work. My info is in the dropdown, etc, but nothing is showing on my Last.fm profile.

Works well, but one "feature" really miffed me - I've been using this app for a number of months and it works well for me. Clean and simple, all I need. Only complaint that I have is with an anti-piracy measure the developer has taken. If the copy is not genuine, the app will scrobble every track played as a single Nickleback song. I appreciate a good joke as much as the next guy, but I happen to stumble upon this when one of my computers' App Store session expired. I lost a few HUNDRED tracks scrobbled to this because it thought the copy was not genuine due to the time out. How about instead of being "cute" or "passive-aggressive", you actually warn your genuine users that there was a problem authenticating the software. All it took was a simple reauth and relaunch... Minus two stars for the transparency, unfortunately.
Too Spartan - This app definitely does work, and it does take its simplicity very seriously. I feel that it takes it TOO seriously, though. There is literally no options menu, so, say, the ability to have the app run on start-up is absent, as are a lot of other features that one would expect from a scrobbler. All in all, SimpleScrobbler scrobbles, and does it wel, but has almost and does almost nothing else. That was obviously the goal of the developer, but I disagree with their design philosophy.
This must be some sick joke. Nickelback scrobbles?? - It sits on your menu bar for convenience but despite being a paid app it has absolutely zero features. After using it for a week I noticed it was scrobbling Nickelback’s "How You Remind Me” for every song I played. The only explanation for this bizzare behaviour is that the app has been hacked because it has not been updated sine 2013... even after changing my password, simple scrobbler kept scrobbling that same Nickelback song over and over. The problem stopped once I deleted it from my computer and went back to Last.fm’s scrobbler. I also changed my password again just to be sure. I wish I could have my money back and Nickleback was held accontable for this shenanigans.
doesn’t scrobble - It doesn’t scrobble. It detects the song but doesn’t actually scrobbles it. DONT BUY IT.
May require a reboot after first install - At first it wasn't working, but a reboot seems to have fixed it for whatever reason.
