All good things must come to an end. It appears that Grooveshark was pulled from the App Store. We sent Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Josh Greenberg a note about it and he replied that the crew are now scrambling to figure out what's going on. No word yet on what really happened or why Grooveshark had their app pulled.
The Mac|Life staff members are big fans of the music streaming app and are sad to see them go from the App Store. But once we hear more, we'll keep you posted. Grooveshark has published an official blog post about what has happened to their iPhone app. The company stated the following, after the cut.
We mentioned Grooveshark's web-based music streaming service in last week's Free App Friday, but today it's available in the official App Store as a streaming music app--one to add alongside the likes of Pandora and Last.FM.
The app was once denied by the App Store judges, so the company made it available in the Cydia app store to jailbroken iOS devices. Fortunately, the tables have turned and the Grooveshark app is now available as a free download.
