Ever wish the music you listen to with your record player or CD deck were submitted to Last.fm like the music you play on your computer, to create a complete and cohesive statistic? Vinyl Scrobbler for Android tries to make this possible, and painless.
Vinyl Scrobbler allows you to search the excellent Discogs data base either by entering the name of an artist or record, or by scanning the barcode on the sleeve or case, assuming the release is new enough to have one. If you've logged in to Last.fm on the settings screen you can then submit the tracks you just listened to.
With Vinyl Scrobbler, when you're about to play a record, side, or even simply a track, or when it has just finished playing, you can pick up your phone, scan the sleeve, press a couple of buttons, and presto, the tracks appear on your Last.fm profile.
