Last.fm Charges Users to Use Mobile Apps
The popular online radio service, Last.fm, has e-mailed users informing them of upcoming changes and charges. From February 15th, users will need a Last.fm subscription to use the mobile apps, such as those for iOS and Android. The e-mail I received yesterday actually pointed out that I'd be getting a three-month free subscription (worth £9) as a gesture of good will. As the e-mail states, this takes effect on February 15th.
One of my favourite features of Last.fm was its ad-free space, and its portability (courtesy of the aforementioned apps). Once my free subscription is up, am I going to pay £3 per month to use the service on-the-go? Yes, I probably will; it is cheaper than Spotify, and in my opinion is far easier to use and more useful.
So what do you think? Is this a welcome change? Or does this ruin Last.fm for you?
