Grooveshark.com

March 7, 2010

A while back i used to use Pandora.com to listen to music, but due to copyright infringements and the related issues Pandora is now only available to selected countries. I also used to use HotSpotShield to access Pandora using an American VPN but lately it just hasn’t been working for me. Which is when a friend informed of about Grooveshark.com; a music streaming website which is similar to Pandora.

It is really cool, updated by anyone and streams pretty quick with a good quality too! The interface is really simple to use, it looks a little like iTunes and features readily available smart playlists which list the most popular songs and the most recent songs you listened to. You can setup you own playlist and play them in an external widget or even share them with your friends.

They are working on an application for the iPhone which will be great once its out. Every song, at any moment in excellent quality and anywhere. I can’t wait till its out, apparently it has been ready for almost a year but Grooveshark has been awaiting approval from the Apple App Store.

Or give it a try and tell me what you think.

  1. I do love Grooveshark, but it does get somewhat irritating that everyone can upload something. but unlike Pandora, I like that I can pick a artist and listen to that artist only. Having both of these online radio stations is very nice :)
