mobbler, the very popular Symbian Last.fm client has moved from version 0.09(265) to version 1.09(265), and is now Symbian Signed (and will be available from the Ovi Store very soon).  Although only a minor feature update, the move to Symbian Signed and being part of the Ovi Store is a major move for mobbler.

The feature differences with this new version are:

  • Set the album art of the current song as your phone’s wallpaper
  • Opening the browser is no longer embedded

If you hadn’t seen the new v0.09 version, it added the following features (with the first item a nice feature to help minimise data allowance) :

  • If you’re listening to the radio, but you have a track on your device, Mobbler will now play the track on your device instead of streaming it to save you some bandwidth and battery. You will get a little hard disk icon in the bottom left of the album art if this happens.
  • We can now fetch and show lyrics of the current track from Lyricsfly.com
  • You can now add and remove track, album, and artist tags on the current track and also from the list views
  • We now show if you have loved a track before
  • We now show if the artist you are listening to is touring. You will get a red banner on the top right of the album art. On S60 5th Edition you’ll be able to click the banner to view the events.
  • Remember the last searched for track, album, artist, tag
  • Bug fixes

This new version has another logo change; the v1 logo loses the “crazy paving” background effect.  mobbler intend to continue releasing versions under the Symbian Signed process, but will still supply beta releases as self-signed versions.
