Grooveshark music app for iPhone and webOS updated

Grooveshark’s most excellent mobile music service is getting a little bit snazzier on webOS and iPhone devices thanks to some new app updates. Aside from a few user interface tweaks to make for easier sharing and playlist editing and the ability to create or extend subscriptions from the device, the biggest addition to the iOS app is Stations, which found its way to the Android app awhile ago. With Stations, you can listen to dynamically generated streaming music based on your feedback within particular genres, much like Pandora, Slacker, or other mobile streaming music services. The webOS version of Grooveshark has added offline caching, so you can listen to your music even when outside of wireless coverage, as well as Just Type support for OS 2.0 and up, enabling fast and easy music searches. The full changelog for iOS can be found here, and webOS here.

What makes Grooveshark different from the rest is that the database is generated by files uploaded by the userbase, making the whole thing of questionable legality, and getting the app kicked out of every major official app store. Luckily, it’s still available for jailbroken iPhones in Cydia, and as a direct download from Subscriptions are a standard $9/month for mobile access, and even if you don’t want to sign up, you can always pull up free music on demand from the desktop browser.
