Mobile Scrobbler adds command-line track metadata

Mobile Scrobbler is the client developed for the iPod touch and iPhone. In its upcoming 1.4.0 recent release, Mobile Scrobbler will allow you to query its metadata database by searching on track and artist from the command line.

To do this, you need to access the MobileScrobbler executable inside the application bundle on your iPhone and issue a command along the following lines:

./MobileScrobbler -track "Shimmer" -artist "Fuel" -album ""

The developers write, saying the album string will be optional--you can pass an empty string as shown here.

This is a great little feature that shouldn't be overlooked by anyone who has command-line access on their iPhone or iPod touch. For a further preview of Mobile Scrobbler 1.4, check out this screenshot tour.
