I started working on ShareTunes as an interesting project to learn iOS development and scratch my own itch as I couldn’t find a decent scrobbling app on the App Store at the time.
Now I feel the app has matured as a replacement for the iOS music app. As such, I have decided to set ShareTunes free.
I intend to continue providing bugfix releases and ensure the app works on future iOS releases.
Thank you for all your support and feedback over the years. It has been much appreciated!
javierplumey asked: ShareTunes used to pick up on whatever I was already playing in the iPod app on my iPhone. Now it stops the music and prompts me to pick a song manually. How come?
In order to support background scrobbling I had to change the way playback works.
Unfortunately, it is not technically possible to support playback using the iPod app AND run the app in the background.
Due to feedback from users, I thought that most people would prefer background scrobbling over iPod app integration.
