Apple gets funky with Grooveshark and pulls app

After a year long battle to get an app for its music streaming service up and running on the iPhone, Grooveshark finally managed the feat earlier this month.

But not long after the celebratory party poppers had hit the ground at the Grooveshark offices, Apple pulled the app from its store. This was apparently a reaction to a complaint from the Universal Music Group in the UK. Universal Music Group filed a lawsuit against the service back in January, which is still pending, and Billboard.biz reports that the move could relate to this.

Grooveshark posted on its blog page: “This comes as an absolute surprise to us, and we are not sleeping until we figure out exactly how to fix this – and get Grooveshark for iPhone back in the App Store. Above all, our biggest concern is damaging the service we provide to all of you guys – our loyal (awesome) users.”

The Grooveshark app is still available to users of other smartphones, including those powered by Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and WebOS.
