Holy sh**, Grooveshark iPhone app now available in the App Store!
Yesterday, however, Grooveshark announced that Apple had approved the app. Yep, it's in the app store right now and you can download it for free. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but I can't think of another app which has made the jump from Cydia to the actual App Store (I have been thoroughly corrected -- thanks, commenters!).
Now, we Canadians aren't blessed with the same number of choices as those of you in the U.S. or U.K. when it comes to all-you-can-eat music apps -- but even if I could use another service I'd probably stick with Grooveshark. The iPhone app lets you search Grooveshark's massive library, it can pull up your saved playlists and favorites, and songs can be downloaded for offline play.
If you like, you can even switch to Offline Mode, which replaces the search button on your toolbar with offline songs -- a particularly nice feature for iPod touch users like me who aren't constantly around WIFI.
Don't forget, Grooveshark VIP access is only $3 a month. That's dirt cheap for a music service as good as this, and you even get two months free when you sign up for a year.
If you haven't seen the app before, check out my gallery -- or better still, just install it on your iPhone [App Store link] and try it out!
Thanks for the heads up, Mobiputing!
