Hey, I know Grooveshark made an app for ADC2, is there any way to get it on my Droid?
No. Grooveshark uses flash which is currently unsupported, but will be coming sometime in 2010.
I don't think you understood my post. Grooveshark already made an app and submitted it to the Android Developer Challenge 2. It won under media for the first round [see here.] I'm not sure if there's a way to get it on a Moto Droid yet though.
if somebody some how has the installer and shares it with us all then yes....but we got to find that somebody...
It's still in Beta. It wasn't released out into the wild, only to select grooveshark users. They are working on finalizing it for release but it's not out yet.
Access Grooveshark on my mobile phone
Funny enough, I'm a Grooveshark developer who checks these forums for info about my droid.
I'll give you guys the inside scoop. We're about to open the android app up to our VIP users for beta testing, however there are still some critical bugs making it pretty unstable on the droid, so I don't recommend installing it yet. Given that a good portion of the office has already upgraded to droid because it's friggin' awesome, proper support should be coming pretty quickly.
When it's ready for Droid, I'll post an update here. Keep in mind that it will be VIP-only, though.
(note: I don't actually write code for the mobile platforms, I work on the backend for the website)
^^ wow thats awesome! i've been waiting a long time to have a grooveshark application. by far the best streaming radio station out right now.
how much is VIP again? 3 bucks... might just have to do that.... well see...
Yup, $3/month or $30/year. Word is that when the mobile apps are fully baked there will be two tiers of VIP though, with mobile being more expensive (due to deals with labels). I don't know what the cost will be though.
any word on if grooveshark app on android will support song caching?
It does. It's still kinda buggy at the moment though (I'll be doing more testing with that later tonight, actually!). Users can set how much space they want to give to the song cache, and some caching is automatic I think, but you can also tell it to cache individual songs or entire playlists.
Hey guys, the Grooveshark app is now available through the Android market or by going to Grooveshark Mobile Music
Note that you have to be a VIP user for this to work.
I'll warn you now that it's still buggy on Android 2.0, about half the songs fail to play for me even though they work fine on 1.5 and 1.6 devices.
Anyway you should be automatically alerted when updates come out and hopefully we'll have some fixes for that in the next few days...
