Is there a stand alone player for SoundCloud? To clarify my question, I am looking for something similar to Last.fm that would populate a tracklist based on incoming tracks or a list of favorites, run on the desktop and continue playing.

Can you specify for what OS if you want desktop? I think at least Windows, Mac, or Linux... and perhaps version (Windows 7, 8?), 32-bit vs 64-bit. For example, here is a SoundCloud desktop player for Mac: blog.soundcloud.com/2011/01/06/desktop –  sunk818 Dec 14 at 7:34

You can get a plugin (add-on) for standalone players like Songbird, run searches and browse incoming tracks from followed artists. I guess this isn't standalone Soundcloud, but it is a desktop based application.

I suspect that you can probably find plugins for other similar players, I just use this one.

This is pretty much what I was looking for, thanks! –  Brian Aug 12 '12 at 12:55
    
Update: This does not work with the latest version of SongBird (v2.0), so unfortunately this isn't going to help. –  Brian Aug 12 '12 at 13:04
    
Ah, apologies. I hadn't noticed that it had disappeared (and wasn't at home when I wrote this). Damn! –  Jeeva Aug 12 '12 at 16:33

I think not.. but you can use your smartphone (android and iOS have a grat Soundcloud apps). Hope i helped a bit.

You can use CloudDeck with Adobe Air. Will work for Windows, Mac, or Linux this way. Looks like it has some track suggestion features, although I have not delved deeply in to the feature set.

Since I posted this, I learned of Chrome's create application shortcuts and have been using this in-lieu of a native app. It's not a native app, but it get the job done.

A quick Google search also reveals a number of apps available in the Windows App store: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/search#q=soundcloud&s=Store&ocid=appscle_search
