*Permissions Usage Explanation*
READ PHONE STATE: This is required to automatically pause the music when a phone call is active.
WAKE LOCK: Some devices cannot stream music with the screen turned off as it goes to sleep. This will keep your device awake ONLY when music is playing.
INTERNET: To stream music of course!
WRITE EXTERNAL STORAGE: Used for the storing of album art and offline streaming content. Devices with multiple storage solutions will be defaulted to the primary external storage. An external storage is considered as what can be mounted via USB.
ACCESS NETWORK STATE: To see if your device has internet.
If the app crashes, I'd really appreciate it if you send the crash report so I can fix the problem. Suggestions are also welcomed in the comments or email at email@example.com. Thank you.
Some usage notes:
- Some phones will have problems streaming ALL songs. Try enabling "Songs Not Playing Fix" from the settings menu.
- There are a lot of extra options by pressing your MENU key or long pressing list items
- You can close the "Loading..." dialog at any time by pressing your BACK key. If you press the pause button before the song starts buffering it'll stop the stream from downloading and playing.
- Radio isn't perfect. Sometimes it won't fetch a new song. It could either be because of a bug in my code or you need more songs in the playlist. If a radio song doesn't load by the end of the list, try liking more songs then play the last song on the playlist to fetch a new radio song.
- The spinning loading icon on the title bar means it is connecting to the GrooveShark servers in some way (like fetching a new song for the radio or downloading album art).
- This app is NOT suited for driving as your phone will be switching between cell towers too often, and slow buffering will possibly be a problem for people passing by areas with poor wireless coverage.

This app was made just for fun and because I was really bored. This is a side project and is updated only when I have free time. This app and its developers are not associated in any way with GrooveShark.com or its affiliates. You can help expand GrooveShark's music collection by visiting them at their website.
