Earlier this month Google removed the Grooveshark Mobile app from the Android Market due to violations of the company’s terms of service. Now you can download the app for free by visiting m.grooveshark.com on your Android phone. Unlike the iPhone version of the app, which can only be run on a jailbroken device now that Apple’s pulled it from the App Store, most Android phones can still run Grooveshark mobile — it just isn’t in the Android Market anymore.
Grooveshark is a streaming music service that lets you listen to millions of songs from a web browser or mobile app. But while most companies work out deals with record companies before making music available online, Grooveshark tends to have an upload first, license later approach which has caused a fair amount of friction and legal trouble for the company.
While the Grooveshark web service is free, you’ll need to sign up for a VIP account for $9 per month to use the mobile app.
