Android: Streaming music service Grooveshark has made a triumphant return to the Play Store after being booted over copyright issues. Grooveshark has worked with Google to resolve those issues and is now offering genre-based or song-based internet radio for free.
The new app comes pre-packaged with about 20 stations. If you hear a song you like, you can start a station based on it, and Grooveshark will tailor the station to your preferences based on the songs you give a thumbs up or skip altogether. Signing up to be a Grooveshark Anywhere user for $US9 per month gets you even more goodies, including access to your Grooveshark favourites and library, offline playback and shareable playlists.
The old version of Grooveshark — the one you had to sideload yourself — also offered these premium features, but it lacked free internet radio and required you to have an Anywhere account just to use the app.
