Every time I write about a streaming music app for Android, someone in the comments makes a note about Grooveshark. It’s one streaming service that I just never got into. I own plenty of music, so when I’m streaming I like a random assortment of songs that I don’t have think about. That naturally draws me to apps like Pandora. But, because so many people have recommended Grooveshark I figured I’d give it a try in the next few weeks. It looks like I’ve picked a good time. They have released a pretty significant update that provides more features and fixes many bugs. One addition I can appreciate is genre-based radio stations. Again, when I’m on my Android I do one of two things. I will go to my stored music if I know what I want, or I will go to a streaming app if I don’t — or if what I want isn’t on my memory card. Grooveshark provides the best of both worlds. You can listen to any song you want — even store it on your device for offline listening — or you can use the new radio feature to shake things up. I doubt it will be as good as the Slackers and the Pandoras, but I’m sure it will be an adequate add-on to the Grooveshark app. What’s also cool is that you can take that radio station and save it as a playlist. Again, this is something I’d absolutely use. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ridden an aural wave on Pandora and wanted to repeat the experience. Alas, you can’t do that with other apps. Another new feature allows you to favorite playlists and then listen to them again. Basically, these are all ways that you can take advantage of Grooveshark’s access to millions of songs. They have them available for your listening pleasure. Now they’re creating different ways in which you can access them. They’re streaming you songs one way or another, so why not give you different ways to browse through the library? They also fixed a ton of bugs, which is always a welcome update. While I used to be skeptical of Grooveshark, I might now be a convert. You can get the app for free in the Market, which provides a “hassle-free” trial. It then costs just $3 per month. That’s less per year than Pandora One.
