Grooveshark brings streaming music with search to Jailbroken iPhones! [Jailbreak]

Grooveshark is an online music search engine and music streaming service which allows users to search for, stream, and upload music free of charge that can be played immediately or added to a playlist with the option to cache files for offline play.

In the past, an iPhone app was available on the iTunes App Store, but was quickly removed as it appeared to violate Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service. It has now returned on Cydia for free, however the app requires a VIP subscription ($3/month through Grooveshark). However, the app does allow for 50 free plays before the subscription service is required.

If you're using it, let us know how it's working for you!

Grooveshark brings streaming music with search to Jailbroken iPhones! [Jailbreak]


There is three reason why I jailbreak my iPhone and this app is one of them, the others are My3G and MiWi.

Only $3 a month. It's not a bad deal. However, the update to 2.02 keeps crashing when I login. Haven't reinstalled it yet, going to do that this afternoon and see how it goes.

I am glad to see this reported, but disappointed at how these things have been reported.
I saw no article saying Grooveshark was finally in the app store....until it was REMOVED from the app store - in less than a week. Then, I count find its jailbroken iteration until a LOT of weeks of searching finally proved fruitful.
It's bothersome.
Anyway, I love Grooveshark, even though this particular app could be better. Actually, I am not sure if this version is the same as the one I dug up and sideloaded. I am afraid to change anything, though, because this is the easiest way to access specific music, most of the time.
Anyway, thanks for the info, TiPb. It is good news.

I prefer using my own music library. AudioGalaxy is my new favorite music app. It allows me to stream my entire collection over the internet to my Iphone, Mac, or PC. Works very well as long as the host computer is on and connected to the internet.
