Not to voice support for piracy on a site that clearly doesn't condone it... but seeing as how this is just taking advantage of what data a legal service already puts on your computer when it streams the song, I suppose it could be considered different... this does beg the question, however, as to why this is stand-alone and not just incorporated into your GrooveMobile application?

Personally, I'd say the best interface to this is just to have a long press on an item on your playlist and allow one of the options to be to download the file (to a folder specified in options). From there you can simply have the progress bar appear translucently behind the song you're downloading.

By the way, I do personal and professional software development and love designing interfaces... if you'd like any assistance with the GrooveMobile interface (which as I understand you're redoing at the moment), just give me a shout. I'd enjoy helping you set up a properly skin-able interface and perhaps even some skinning software like Nitrogen provides.

How does one go about installing this? There doesn't seem to be a cab file in the zip.

Do we just place the folder and then run the exe from the folder?

This tool has two sites, your are alright. But it will available till I added the caching support in SciLor's GrooveMobile.

You got PM relating the interface soon

You try to download a song with a character that is not allowed in paths . I'll have to fix it
