New Last.fm App For Android Allows Streaming Radio

Music recommendation engine and social network Last.fm has launched an application for the Android platform that allows users to stream radio stations, and consult up-to-date concert information.

The application allows users to access their Last.fm profile and millions of streaming tracks on Android-powered phones, and supports "background playback" so people can listen to music while you access other programs.

Last.fm has been offering an application for the iPhone / iPod Tough for about six months with the same feature set. Last.fm was acquired by CBS in May 2007 for $280 million.--Gavin O'Malley
