Grooveshark gets kicked out of the Android Market

Google has removed Grooveshark from the Android Market. The move, which comes many months after Apple kicked the music app from its App Store, has to do with (what else?) accusations from several top music labels that Grooveshark violates copyright law. It's unclear whether Google plans to also remotely remove the app from Android smartphones on which it's already been installed, something that...

djtxt: Collaborative Grooveshark music playlists via SMS, Twitter and email

Fresh from the fragrant and bohemian confines of the New York 2011 Music Hack Day comes djtxt, a surprisingly awesome Web app that lets you collaborate on the perfect Grooveshark party music playlist. All you have to do is run the djtxt 'client' (which is just a matter of opening Grooveshark and clicking a bookmarklet) on a computer that's attached to some (preferably loud) speakers. Anyone...

Groovylists makes Grooveshark playlists from iTunes, Last.fm, or Spotify

If you love music site Grooveshark for its huge streaming music library, but hate the process of recreating your favorite playlists for Grooveshark use, you'll love Groovylists. This little web app copies any playlist you've set up in iTunes, Spotify, or Last.fm, right over to Grooveshark, with a few limitations. Groovylists can't import playlists bigger than 200 songs, so you can't use it to...

Better Grooveshark user script shows lyrics, hides ads, adds current song to tab title

Better Grooveshark is a user script that works with Grooveshark's redesigned HTML5-based user interface, and enhances your Grooveshark experience in a few cool ways. First off, the ads are hidden. Those of you who know (and love) what an ad blocker is will see no benefit from this, but for the majority of those surfing the Internet these days, this may improve the look of the site and remove a...

Sharkzapper for Google Chrome is a remote control for the new Grooveshark

You can still opt-in to the old, Flash-powered Grooveshark if you like, but I'm rather enjoying the new HTMLified version. There is, however, one piece of the puzzle missing by default: the ability to control Grooveshark without tabbing back to the Web player. Sharkzapper for Chrome, however, is up to the task. Install the extension, and you've got drop-down control to skip forward or back,...

A look at Grooveshark's massive HTML5 makeover

Grooveshark is somewhat of a house favorite here at Downloadsquad. It's one of the few music sites which isn't georestricted, which means Sebastian, Erez, Vlad, Sam and I can all enjoy the same music as our teammates in the U.S. This morning, I woke up to find a completely overhauled Grooveshark interface and there's one change which trumps all the visual tinkering: it's not built with Flash. The...

Limili iOS app identifies songs and then adds them on streaming music services

Limili is a new mobile app that identifies any song that's playing around you, almost exactly like Shazam. Limili does something that Shazam doesn't, though: it finds the song on your streaming music services, including Grooveshark, Spotify, Rhapsody and Last.fm. From there, you can add the song to your collections and playlists with a couple of taps. Limili uses Mufin's huge, pre-existing song...

Grooveshark 1.2 for webOS adds background playback controls, shuffle mode, more

Grooveshark is one of my most-used webOS apps, and the recent 1.2 update makes an already good app even better. The most prominent addition is the notification area player controls, which allow you to command Grooveshark as it plays in the background -- just like the built-in webOS player. There's also a new shuffle mode for random enjoyment of your playlists, and Grooveshark 1.2 has also...

DLS Faceoff: Grooveshark is a solid music streaming and recommendation app for Android

This post is the second part of the DLS Faceoff that reviews two of the major audio streaming offerings currently available for Android. Erez has walked you through Rdio in the previous post, and this post will focus on Grooveshark. Make sure you read both and decide for yourself which app better suits your needs. Grooveshark is an online audio streaming service at heart, and it works on...

DLS Review: My experience with the updated Grooveshark

I'm a long-time Grooveshark fan. I was a VIP subscriber for a few months, too, and I was generally impressed with the service. So naturally, when Lee told me yesterday that they've undergone a revamp, I was stoked. There appears to be no post on Grooveshark's own blog covering the update, so I decided to take the service on a random spin and just cruise around the interface in order to look for...

MusicLink.fm is a full-album Grooveshark front-end

Grooveshark is one of the best music services online. It's sheer awesome, to be honest, and it's one of the few services which isn't geo-crippled. Really, how much better can it get? How about with easier full-album listening? MusicLink.fm uses Grooveshark's widgets to present you with a simple interface for listening to complete albums. I'm actually not sure whether or not this violates...

Grooveshark yanked from App Store, pandas everywhere made sad

Some people (including our own Victor Agreda Jr.) didn't understand why I was so shocked that Grooveshark's app had finally received Apple's blessing and showed up in the App Store. They had a pending lawsuit from one of the major record companies, after all. No matter, said Vic -- Apple doesn't concern itself with that stuff. It's up to the app developers to sort out those issues. ... Or is...

Holy sh**, Grooveshark iPhone app now available in the App Store!

It's no secret that there was a little bad blood last time Grooveshark submitted their iPhone app to the Cupertino Crew. The app was denied, and Grooveshark didn't fell they had to take the rejection lying down... So they decided to release it to jailbroken iPhones and iPods via Cydia. Yesterday, however, Grooveshark announced that Apple had approved the app. Yep, it's in the app store right...

Grooveshark's iPhone app is unbelievably awesome, but totally unapprovable

I'm not shy about my love of Grooveshark. No one pays me to say it, it's just the best streaming music app I've used -- and it's fully functional in Canada unlike some of its geotarded cousins in the audio game. They caused a bit of a ruckus recently when they decided to push their iPhone app -- which had been roundly denied by Apple -- via Cydia, doing an end run around Jobs and Co. There...

Universal sues Grooveshark music service

Grooveshark is a fantastic music service; it lets you immediately listen to almost any song or album you can think of. They've got an enormous library, and the quality is usually decent. We've covered it before, but what makes it special for me is that it is actually one of the few services that work in my geotarded neck of the woods (no Hulu or Spotify for me). And now, Universal Music...
