Grooveshark prepare iPhone app

By | Published on Friday 31 July 2009

Sophisticated music search service Grooveshark, that lets users playlist and stream music content from across the net (quite a lot of it unlicensed) through one player, has an iPhone app ready and waiting, and now pending Apple approval.

It will be interesting to see if Apple allow the app to be made available via its official store, not only because – like the Spotify app announced earlier this week – it provides serious competition for iTunes, but also because Grooveshark is currently subject to a copyright infringement lawsuit by EMI.

It will be interesting to see if Apple, who is, after all, a business partner with the major record companies (if a reluctant one) will give the go ahead for a service to launch on its mobile device which at least one major thinks is infringing their copyrights.
