Rhapsody app for Windows Phone 7 now available in Zune Marketplace

Rhapsody continues strengthening its position as a go-to music streaming service in the U.S. In the wake of offering an extended 60-day trial of its services, Rhapsody has now launched a Windows Phone 7 app. It's very similar to the Rhapsody apps for other mobile OSes, with the obvious exception of a Metroesque interface. You can search for and stream songs, access your playlists, and browse...

Rdio gets the jump on Spotify with API release, affiliate program

Rdio is a much-beloved streaming music service, and it's got one serious advantage over Spotify at the moment: it's already available in the U.S. So while Americans continue to wait for the arrival of Spotify, Rdio is doing its best to strengthen its position in the marketplace. To that end, Rdio is enlisting the aid of developers by releasing an API for the service and announcing an...

Pyrcast for Mac is a simple, clutter-free Pandora app

Pyrcast for Mac is a Pandora desktop application. It integrates Pandora's streaming radio service with the Mac desktop -- and also eliminates Pandora's ads. Pyrcast is minimalist and clutter-free, letting you focus on the music and not so much on the app delivering it. Pyrcast lets you listen to stations from your existing Pandora account and features station management, song history, album...

Banshee media player for Windows goes alpha

Banshee has been one of the top Linux media players for ages, and now the venerable audio and video app has officially made its way to Windows. The first alpha release of Banshee for Windows is now available for download, and it's exactly what you would expect: it's very true to the Linux experience, and it's got a few kinks which still need working out before it's ready for prime time on...

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...

Last.fm to require subscription for radio use on mobile apps

Starting February 15th, Last.fm will no longer offer its radio service via mobile apps for free. From that point on, a Last.fm subscription will be required if you want to listen on your smartphone. In the official announcement, Last.fm's Matthew Hawn spells out the reasons for the change. Unsurprisingly, it's got a lot to do with profitability. Last.fm on the desktop will continue to offer...

Spotify's U.S. launch delayed by cash demands from record labels?

As Spotify -- the popular online music service -- nears profitability in Europe, the situation isn't quite as rosy across the pond. With Spotify's hopes of a 2010 U.S. launch officially dashed, the company is still facing an uphill climb in the States. The sticking point, according to sources cited by The Telegraph, may be financial demands from the U.S. record labels. Concerned that users will...

No Spotify in the U.S. this year, label deals still up in the air

Spotify is an excellent music service. At least, it appears to be, based on what our friends in Europe tell us. North American resident, of course, are still geo-blocked from using Spotify -- though we had been promised a U.S. launch in 2010. With just under four weeks left in the year, it looks like the reports we heard in October weren't totally accurate. In truth, Spotify is not close to...

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...

Slacker Radio for Windows Phone 7

On my desktop, I'm a Grooveshark user -- but there's no Grooveshark app for Windows Phone 7 yet... so where does one turn for custom-tailored streaming tunes? Why, Slacker Radio, of course! Search for a band, tap their name (Volbeat, for example), and Slacker begins buffering your first track and looking for other songs it thinks you'll like -- which you can like or ban while they play. Tap...

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 Faceoff: Rdio is an incredible music streaming service for Android

If you have a smartphone with a fast network connection and an unlimited data plan, do you really need to have a ton of music stored locally? Wouldn't it make more sense to just stream it from the cloud on demand? I think it would make a lot of sense, and luckily for me, I'm not the only one. There are at least two major audio streaming offerings for Android at the moment: Grooveshark and...

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...
