Digital Grooveshark Timeline

Grooveshark iPhone app approved

By | Published on Friday 13 August 2010

Grooveshark’s iPhone app has been approved by the powers that be at Apple and is available to download from the iTunes app store now. When the IT firm initially rejected the app, the slightly rebellious streaming music service made it available to people using ‘jailbroken’ iPhones.

It was assumed Apple were concerned by some legal claims that have been made by content owners against Grooveshark, though complaints from EMI and indie rights body Merlin have been settled and licensing deals have been made in their place. Universal’s legal action against the company, though, is ongoing.
