Last.fm Support and other ideas

Hello,

I have been using DC for about a month now, and it is by far the best podcatcher EVER. I have a couple of feature requests:

-Last.fm scrobbling support- either natively or through Scrobbledroid: http://code.google.com/p/scrobbledroid/wiki/DeveloperAPI

-An option to hide items after they have been listened to/deleted, even if they are still present in the publishers feed. My idea for implementation of this would be just an option under the "Number of Items" setting where you enter "0" to display only un-listened items.

Thanks for such a great product!!

Great ideas. I'm for both of them. Especially the second one - would suit my OCD :)

Good ideas

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

I hadn't heard of scrobbling before but it looks pretty cool...I was just reading up on it a bit.

I created issues for both of them.

Simple Last.fm Scrobbler

Hi, I'm the developer of a scrobbling app for android called Simple Last.fm Scrobbler (http://code.google.com/p/a-simple-lastfm-scrobbler/). It works similar to ScrobbleDroid, and has a very simple API to enable scrobbling: http://code.google.com/p/a-simple-lastfm-scrobbler/wiki/Developers

Anyway, I've had a few user requests to support DC, so it would be great if you had a look.

Regards,

Scrobble api

I just took a look at the api. It looks to be a pretty simple integration. I scheduled it into the 'soon' grouping.

Thanks for posting.

Another request for scrobbling

I know you've added this to your issues, but I'd like to second the request for scrobbling. For me, this is the only thing missing from this application. Since I use it every day, I'd like to be able to track my listening activities across my different devices through Last.fm.

Thanks for creating such a wonderful app. Your work is greatly appreciated.

Is it 'soon' yet? :)

I moved it up a bit to three

I moved it up a bit to three after next. Those are only rough groupings, but I'll try to get it in fairly soon.

Bump

Just wanted to add my support for this feature. I just bought my first smartphone and as a big podcast listener, this was the first app that I paid for. It's fantastic!

Scrobbling

I've recently moved from iOS to Android and for the most part I'm really enjoying using DoggCatcher.

There are just two things I'd love to see, the first being Last.FM scrobbling. I've been scrobbling for several years and really miss this feature. Is this going to be added? This is the one missing feature that would make me consider moving to a different podcasting app (if another had this feature?!).

Secondly I'd like to have the option to list my podcasts alphabetically. Personally I don't use the auto playlist feature. I would just like to be able to scroll and find the podcast I'm after easily, rather than having to search for it - but hey, I can create another thread for that request. :)

Best wishes

Mark

I've have been putting the alpha sort off for a while but I think I just to do it with a strong warning about the side effects. As you say, there are some people who understand what would happen and it would work just fine for you. I moved it up in the schedule.
