PandoraJam + iTunes + a match made in heaven

This is the system I use to listen to music and get new suggestions.  I love Pandora and iTunes, but they don’t talk to each other. solves this problem through Scrobbling so you can have a central place to see all your listening habits and favorites plus discover new music at by listening to songs on iTunes and Pandora.  The setup I use is PandoraJam to listen and record songs from Pandora and put them into my iTunes Library and also scrobble them to and also when I listen to music through iTunes the scrobbler app scrobbles them to my account.  Then I discover new music through and music saved to iTunes so I can buy the albums and songs that I like.

The songs should be automatically added to your iTunes Library in the correct Artist/Album folders, but if not, just consolidate the files:
