Last.fm Released New Public API That Allows Deeper Integration With the Last.fm platform

Last.fm today announced their new public API, which allows any application or device deeper integration with the Last.fm platform than ever before.

The new API introduces a user authentication protocol which for the first time allows applications to create user sessions, bringing both read and write services to web apps, desktop apps and mobile devices.

New tagging API’s help developers to pull and apply tags to music content from any application on any platform now. The same goes for sharing – developers can build Last.fm sharing support into any app.

There are also new search, playlist, event and geo API’s being rolled out today and you will find lots more stuff in the coming weeks and months.

If you’ve been working with existing services, bear in mind scrobbling is also integrated with the new API, so there’s just one session key required to use any Last.fm service now.
