Has any one used this? I used to use Spotify on my phone, now I just used Last.fm due to not wanting to fork out £10 a month for Spotify. But for £2 a month I could be tempted by this! Is it legal?

It's been accepted into both the palm and blackberry markets, so I don't know if that means anything

Works for me. I've downloaded the app for my Nokia and it offered me a free trail (I believe it was 50 songs over 2 weeks). I'll see how it works out!
#4
looks like you can also download songs to play offline? so could this be a bargain alternative to the likes of Itunes?
#5
Actually works out at closer to £2.30 as they charge you 17.5% tax when you select UK. Also note that you are paying for VIP access with limited time access to the mobile program... so pricing may change.

Just select USA, it doesn't make any difference to the product

Would those markets accept illegal applications?

does this have all the latest songs that you can download to your pc in mp3 ? are they high bit-rate ?
#10
its fully legal. they are backed by EMI i believe.
Apple are just being awkward as they always are.

Its a great deal, shame the android app is quite buggy at the moment.

I doubt either company would spend much time checking to make sure Grooveshark's licenses are legit. A quick glance maybe, but not a lot of digging.

Still, yeah they apparently are kosher 8)

i take it if you stream over 3G you'd better have a good data plan?

At £10/mo most folk won't want to fork out the dosh for Spotify, and may continue using iTunes. At £2/mo though, if Apple approved it for the iPhone they would instantly lose massive revenue from iTunes to Grooveshark - I mean for the price of 3 songs on iTunes, you get a month of unlimited tunes with offline listening, playlists etc and cross-platform between the computer and iPhone.

Seriously tempted at £2/mo!

edit @ shutdown - Remember most UK networks have hard limits on data allowance now. For instance, on £45/mo o2 limit you to 750MB/mo. They are running a promo where you get unlimited data until October. So while this will work over 3G, keep close eye on your monthly usage and try to use WiFi whenever possible!

Wow, liking the site.
#16
If you have a windows mobile, you might want to try 'SciLor's Groovemobile' as it's free and works with the grooveshark database.
#17
What are people's experiences streaming over 2G?

I can just image it's too slow buffering, making 3G a must?
#18
I bought myself a months premium a few weeks ago and it's definitely a viable alternative to Spotify and has much larger selection of music as well =]

also there service is probably on the cusp of legality as there entire music catalogue was provided by there users and not by the music industry however they do conform to the DMCA
#19
Since anyone can upload, I often find some good live versions of the same tracks I'm looking for. Android client is quite good, if a little buggy.
#20
Trying the 50 song 2 week demo thing now (via the cydia app on iphone), handy that you don't need to sign up + hand over details till you decide.
#21
can anyone confirm what format and bitrate are those songs?
mp3s at 120 and even 240kb/s are awfull.
#22
I know this is off topic, but you may want to try Mecanto at mecanto.com. It lets you listen to your existing music library on your mobile device. It is usefull when you want to browse through hundreds of Gb of music without actually having to carry a HDD with you.

So you have your music on your PC, you either stream it live from your PC to your smart phone or laptop, or you let it upload to their servers and stream it from there. You will need wi-fi or 3G connection for fast streaming on your mobile device .
You also can have multimple PCs streaming to your library.
You will need to install their software on your PC and on your mobile device too.

Software is 100% legal, safe and free. Ive been using it for a year. The only money they make is with amazon adverts on their home page, which shouldnt bother you.
#23
This is pretty god damn awesome, but I'm paying month by month because I know this won't be around forever...
#24
Excellent service thank you for posting. Subscribed to it on a monthly basis. It's ideal for those with iPad who want loads of music on move, streams well over mi fi
#25
I'm using the trial now on Android, not impressed to be honest. Album contents that I've searched so far contain about 30+ songs. What's that about?

I know spotify is a lot more expensive, bit the quality shows.

Wish the Windows 7 phone and Zune Pass would hurry up!
#26
anyone tried this on the blackberry bold 9000? this seems interesting and a much cheaper alternative to spotify.
#27
excellent just downloaded to my blackberry and works perfectly. very nice user interface too.
#28
been using it for a few weeks.

you can download songs for offline listening when you're on the tube, etc... good quality and cheaper than spotify
#29
Good find. The site is pretty useable and the sound quality is on par with my Spotify Premium subs. Can't help thinking this seems just too good to be true though. Nothing to discredit the deal, just get it whilst you can before the industry rains a legal s-storm down on GrooveShark. HEAT ADDED

Well according to the Grooveshark site, becoming a VIP entitles it's members to preview features that will be coming soon to everyone!

So we could be seeing this completely free in the next couple of months!
#31
Signed up to monthly as I originally intended to use this only for my iPhone, which may end up costing seperate on top of the VIP... not sure. Anyway, 2 months free by paying yearly - safer bet to stick with monthly recurring IMO.

The windows app is very slick!
#32
For £1.89 (at current exchange) this is defiantly worth a punt.

It's nowhere near as good as Spotify premium, in terms of usability, however the breadth of music catalogue and sound quality are impressive with some artists, (e.g. Oasis), who are not available on Spotify, accessible via Grooveshark.

I am using it on my MacBook, desktop PC, Blackberry and iPhone, and it works great on all, allthough your iPhone will need to be jailbroken, which is no problem now we have jailbreakme.com It is a bit of a pain searching for songs on mobile devices, then having to add songs individually, rather than the way Spotify works - find an artist, see all albums, tap-on album play all tracks with swipe to move between tracks, however with Grooveshark, the best way, I have found so far, is to create playlists on their website, or save other users lists and listen to them on the move.

I would strongly suggest people use PayPal as it is much easier to cancel a recurring charge, (which Grooveshark did set-up despite me instructing otherwise), as credit card is a nightmare to deal with once an unwanted continuous mandate is activated.

I grabbed a VIP not so long ago, as I love listening to the vast catalogue of music.

Thought me and my brother have both found bugs in the application for our android phones.

The main reason I bought it was that, I'm going on Holiday for a few weeks soon, so thought the Offline mode would be a good idea since I most likely won't have any mobile internet.

At first we thought it was working swimmingly, but we now see that Offline is not really offline all the time. we found a way to access the music when we realised this and it played it fine, though it really switches to trial mode when this happens.

Reading the forums it looks like a bug. I think i'll need to grab spotify premium for my hols' as I don't think the offline mode works well or smooth enough for weeks I plan to use it.

If you are confused, think of it like how you need to sign in to steam to access the downloaded games.

Because despite what Grooveshark claim they do not own the rights to many of the tracks available. They are user submitted and Groovesharks get out is that users should only submit tracks they own and Grooveshark has a license for. Only removing tracks later when asked to by other record companies.

Consequently because the tracks are user submitted, many are badly encoded and badly tagged.

It's a scam and no better than many of the illegal alternatives. I don't know how they are getting away with it.

Yeah, it's just a mess. Just tried in on my laptop too, thinking I could sort it out into playlists etc which would extend to my phone. Really not sure I can be bothered, I'll stick to Spotify.

Apple have removed the app within a week of it being realeased onto the App Market. However, it can still be installed using Cydia (which can be installed by going to http://www.jailbreakme.com/ on your iphone/ipod touch browser)
