Grooveshark’s iPhone App Is Great, But It’s About To Get Smacked Down By Apple

Over the last few days we've seen a lot of attention centered on the new iPhone application from Spotify , the so-called 'iTunes Killer' subscription service that lets you plays songs on demand from a library of millions of tracks. We still don't know if that app is going to make it through Apple's nebulous approval process, but it's already got some possible competition: Grooveshark , a streaming music service that lets you stream nearly any song from its web interface, has its own iPhone app ready for release and it's just about to submit it to Apple. Like Spotify, the application lets you search for any song you want and stream it from the cloud almost instantly. Now Grooveshark just needs to face the daunting Apple approval process. So will it make it though unscathed? Almost certainly not.
