Last.fm, Spotify iPhone apps updated to support background listening Since the announcement of iOS 4 earlier this year, millions of iPhone users have drooled over finally being given the ability to multitask their apps.
Today, two of the most popular music streaming apps, Spotify and Last.fm have been updated to use iOS 4 properly, allowing for background listening.

You can now minimize the apps and continue to hear music, while browsing the Internet or using other apps.

Spotify will require a premium account, and the update also adds the ability to "use the headset remote and lockscreen buttons to control playback."

Last.fm is free to download and update.

Did I read that right? I mean, does multitasking require apps to be re-written in the same way that the new version of Apps2SD requires apps to be rewritten? If this is the case, then apple's huge app store will need a lot of work to get up to date.
