Grooveshark tired of Play-ing games, launches HTML5 site
Right off the top, we want to apologize for the pun in the title. We know that quite a low percentage of the populace has the stomach for such things. Anyway, Grooveshark really is tired of all the troubles it has been having with the Google Play Store, and has decided to opt for an HTML5 web app instead. 

Grooveshark has been having a number of legal problems, and as such, it was pulled from the Google Play Store a while back. Then, over the course of only a few days last week, the app suddenly appeared in the Play Store, only to be yanked once again. Grooveshark does hope to be reinstated to the Play Store, but in the meantime, it has launched an HTML5 web app to be a cross-platform solution to the problems. 

The site is free, although ad-supported. And, it allows users to sign in to access saved playlists. It should work perfectly on iOS and Android, and other platforms will have to make sure their browsers are up to snuff before it will work. 

If you want to give it a try, just head over to Grooveshark on your mobile device to start listening.

Slight UI update, but this has been functioning pretty great for a while now

I've been using this for quite awhile now, gave up on the apps.
