Grooveshark No Longer Available in the App Store

The saga of the Grooveshark iPhone app continues. Here’s the story so far: when the app was first rolled out, Apple did not welcome it to the App Store. So the development team at Grooveshark decided that they are going to roll it out to Cydia so that iPhone users who had a jailbroken device could use it. Then earlier this month, last week to be more precise, the unbelievable occurred – the Grooveshark iPhone app was finally allowed to enter the App Store.

But the joy of having the app in the App Store was short lived. The app, you’ve guessed it, has been kicked out of the App Store. It turns out that Universal Music UK filed a complaint with Apple, and the Cupertino-based software developer decided the best course of action is to give the Grooveshark app the boot.

“Earlier this afternoon, Apple sent us a letter notifying us that, due to a complaint they received from Universal Music Group UK, Grooveshark for iPhone has been, strangely, pulled from the App Store. This comes as an absolute surprise to us, and we are not sleeping until we figure out exactly how to fix this—and get Grooveshark for iPhone back in the App Store. Above all, our biggest concern is damaging the service we provide to all of you guys—our loyal (awesome) users,” said a Grooveshark announcement.

The bad news is that if you want to get it now, you can no longer do so. The good news is that if you already downloaded the app while it was available, you can continue to use it.You can use Grooveshark for iPhone free of charge for a trial period of 30 days – once that trial period is over you’ll have to sign up for a VIP account if you want to have unlimited access to all its features. A VIP account will set you back just $3 per month, or $30 per year. It is a small price to pay considering that you have access to Grooveshark's massive library, you can create playlists, and download songs for offline play.
