Grooveshark is the bomb diggity, the cats Meow, the greatest invention since the creation of bread. Ok, so that's a little over the top but Grooveshark is great! Listen to just about any song you want, when you want, streamed to your device. Create your own Playlists or randomly search for whatever tune you are in the mood for. Imagine listening to any song, any time, anywhere. - Tom

Spotify is the ultimate tool for listening to and discovering new music (unless you’re looking for Taylor Swift). It’s easy to use and has an abundance of well-known and yet-to-be-discovered artists. Apple Music simply can’t compare. The premium version is recommended if you’re going to be streaming music in an office setting to avoid commercials.

Pros :

The user interface is simple to use and clean. Even without the premium version, you can play specific songs and skip an unlimited amount of times on the desktop version. You also have access to endless curated playlists, new releases and a library with every genre of music known to man. You can also create and share your own playlists easily. You can even make your playlists collaborative so that your friends can add songs as well. However, you also have the option to make a playlist private. You can build your own or use the numerous Spotify playlists for inspiration when building your own. It also has a new feature that recommends songs and artists for you based on what you’ve listened to. It really does everything for you. You can even find a playlist based on the day of the week, time of day and your mood. It also has a radio feature that doesn’t tie you down to a specific playlist. I use it every day in the office. Spotify makes it quick and easy to find the perfect song to complement the task I’m working on.

Cons :

When compared to other platforms, Spotify does have an extensive library of artists. However, there are some who have pulled their music. Obviously, the ads can be quite annoying when you’re using the free version. On the mobile version, you don’t have the option of choosing a particular song to listen to, which isn’t ideal. There are also sometimes weird glitches where a song doesn't play, but you just have to restart the program.

    I’m a little confused. I moved from Grooveshark to Youtube a while ago, for one and only reason: I was not able to share my playlist with my wife, and let her add or remove songs… This morning, I have told myself why not try it back to see how it is now going. Grooveshark.com now redirect to some kind of strange service, not remembering my user and password. I googled Grooveshark and went on Grooveshark.im, same feel and look that is used to, but still now remembering my password. I decided to google more, and try finding what it was going on, to discover that Grooveshark, is dead? Based on Wikipedia, the site closed on April 30, 2015, after a settlement. On July 19, the co-founder Josh Greenberg was found dead. For the last hours, I’ve been listening music on Grooveshark.im while reading on the subject, with “New Grooveshark” closed, but, I’m on right now… hard to explain. Based on Wikipedia again, Apple killed it in 2010, Android in 2011, Facebook in 2012 and Google, 2013. Hard to tell how it survived that long being banned on all the major platform. So far, the suggestions are good, no publicity, and no ad asking for my money. I don’t know how long the site will be on since there is nothing anywhere, no contact form, or terms. I searched for many different song and artist, and found everything I was looking for, the database seems ok, but the search is pretty hard to use. I tried to find songs for a specific artist, and had to go thru a lot of different clicks before finding it. The related artist is pretty strange, but related songs seem to be better. A lot of songs are not working, having my client “switching” to the next songs very often. I really thing that Grooveshark is dead!

    Pros :

    • I don’t see any Pros right now, since the service is down, and Grooveshark.im is unusable.

    Cons :

    • Based on Grooveshark.im, so many bugs, the search don’t give anything good.

    While Spotify is lauded in public for its innovation, if that's what you're after then Grooveshark takes the crown. It's also the most adaptable of services looked at, as it's available in desktop, mobile and web browser-based incarnations.

    If you're looking for a flexible online music service for streaming content rather than purchasing songs to keep, then Spotify is a well-balanced service that has enough options to probably suite most people's needs.

    Even though the bugs in Grooveshark really bug me, it turns out they weren't dealbreakers. I haven't used my iPod since I started using this Grooveshark Anywhere App, which is a win for me since I now have less thing to carry around . I think that with a few bug updates and fixes, this will prove to be an amazing app.
