UPDATE 9/10:
Sorry, the project is discontinued by me. The source code is published as an attachment.
Feel free to continue the development (but if you do, please mention my name somewhere).
End users: Please try Groovefish by Barguast instead!

Thanks for all your support!


As the titles states, I've developed an application able to stream any song from Grooveshark.
The application is still full of bugs, so it should be considered more of a proof-of-concept at the moment.

I will spend my limited spare time on my new, still secret, project. Keep your eyes open

UPDATE 29/9:
New alpha version (0.2) released!
Some of the crashing is hopefully gone. Please leave feedback!

Known bugs:
  • BASS (the audio player) sometimes gives you a message box saying that the playback failed. Wait a few seconds and try again.
  • The spinning umbrella gets stuck on the result list (scroll a little to remove it).
  • The search query doesn't get copied from the search screen to the result/player screen.

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 (5.0, 6.0 and 6.5 will probably work).
  • .NET Compact Framework 3.5.
  • QVGA, VGA or WVGA screen resolution.

Download and screenshots as attachments.

Thanks to scilor for letting me use his kinetic scrolling demo code!

I think you shouldn't worry about it for a couple of reasons.

First, Grooveshark hasn't been labeled illegal.

Second, if Grooveshark has a problem with you reverse engineering their product they'll probably contact you first asking you to stop developing, at which point you might have to, or you can attempt to get hired by them for a windows mobile/ mobile version of their product all together!.... ( I doubt the last part, but I can hope can't I?)

Third, this is development forum, and you are developing within the bounds of things that aren't explicitly illegal.

So yeah, bring joy to our community and spread your knowledge.

Extremely interested. I could do graphics, if you wanted to go that approach.

I know this is very early, but I believe you could have a killer app:

*Kinetic Scrolling
*Great looks
*Easy to use
*User account?(maybe)

Thanks for all the response!
I've been improving the stability during the weekend and will now start to improve the looks.

Thanks, but right now I think I'm OK with the graphics. I'm using Fluid to get a nice look and feel.
Actually, I'm having more problem with the audio playback part, where I'm using BASS.

Stay tuned for more details and maybe a alpha version!

then let me offer my servics as a tester. I would use the app a lot, so I could help track down bugs. I have a Diamond, which is VGA.
