Nokia N9 boasts last.fm support in several applications, with a standalone FlowPlayer (which is a decent app however lags quite badly), QuasarMX beta and an amazing Last.fm radio client by Matiaz Perez to mention just a few. What I've been missing quite badly, however, was a simple way to enable last.fm scrobbling within the built-in N9 music player (which I personally find enough for my needs). I've recently discovered is Scrobbler, a beautiful little app that adds last.fm scrobbling to your N9 music player.

Alongside a fancy demo of their brainchild (see the video below), Jolla has finally launched their official website at www.jolla.com, which currently shows just a bunch of recent tweets and the aforementioned video.

|Emboss theme on Nokia N9|
Now, since a number of paid and non-paid themes appeared around the internet, it's just high time to give ThemeChanger a try. Each N9 theme provides an individual set of icons and interface design. It also changes the status bar (see screens below) and system icons. The themes are also compatible with horizontal view (if you're using Home Screen Settings for Nokia N9).
