I’m a big fan of Pandora internet radio service on my Android phone, but I’ve experimented with a little Slacker and Last.fm. Last.fm has been available for free, ad-supported, on a myriad of platforms – Xbox, desktop, and various mobile devices. Sadly, it has been determined by the Last.fm management that it is not cost-effective to continue to offer free versions on all platforms. The only services that will remain available in free versions will be Xbox Live and Windows Phone 7, as well as the desktop version.
So, my Android-using friends…if you use the free version of Last.fm on your Android phone, it will be coming to an end on February 15th. While Last.fm has to maintain their bottom line, it’s always a shame to see free services come to an end. So enjoy this service while you can, because you’ve got about a week left!
