HTML5 Grooveshark is here! Still No App For iPhone, iPod touch and iPad


One of the popular music streaming website: Grooveshark is out, revamped with a new interface, on the mush faster HTML5 engine. Go ahead and check out the all new Grooveshark website.

In the new design, the Grooveshark VIP features are still in fact — it’s just a few changes and the switch from Flash to HTML5 that Grooveshark has gone with thus far.

However, not all the elements on the Grooveshark website works on the HTML5 standard. It is only the interface that has gone through the changes — the music playback still calls for the Flash element. Sure, HTML 5 is awesome, but there’s no point in having an HTML5 interface and music that streams only if Flash is installed, right?

No Grooveshark App For iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

The overhauled Grooveshark interface loads faster, but it doesn’t excite the iOS crowd. And ever since the Grooveshark app was pulled from the Apple store, the only way to stream music — using the the Grooveshark app — is to jailbreak your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

I tried accessing the Grooveshark website from the Safari browser on my iPod touch just to know that it redirects to the mobile grooveshark webpage — blocking me from accessing the front end of the site. The bold headline: ‘Coming soon for iPhone’ has been there for a very long time now. Let’s hope that a complete HTML5 makeover is in works!

    Don’t misinform people

    they HAVE an iPhone app but you have to jailbreak the iPhone in order to get cydia to get the actual app because apple refuses to work with grooveshark

    You said it! :-)

    Sure, I like GS, but the fact that it costs now $9 a month and still lacks some features, is enough for me to use Snoost.

    Great post!
