Online music streaming service Grooveshark has pushed out new mobile apps for Android and iOS. The iOS version isn’t available through iTunes though… you’ll have to download it from the Cydia store on a jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. The Android version, on the other hand, is available in the Android Market and can run on pretty much all Android devices.

The new version of the Android app supports Genre-based radio stations, the ability to save a radio station as a playlist which you can return to later, options to repeat single songs or an entire queue, and the ability to remember the songs in your queue even if you reboot your phone. There’s also support for Bluetooth controllers that let you play or pause the music or skip to the next or previous track. Grooveshark 2.1.1 for Android also supports scrobbling.

The iOS version now supports multitasking on iOS 4, and support for retina displays on the iPhone 4 and new iPod touch. There are also new search filters, letting you search by song, artist, or album. Like the Android app, the new iOS app also supports genre-based radio stations and saved radio stations.

While Groovesharkj’s mobile apps are free, you’ll need to sign up for a $3 per month subscription to continue using the service after your free trial expires.
