    "The Best Free Music Player"

    October 30, 2011  |   By unc2000


    -Everything is FREE!
    -You can CHOOSE your own music, unlike Pandora
    -There is a HUGE variety of music. Even music that iTunes doesn't have is here.
    -You can repeat songs, if you really like one in particular
    -There are no ads that play in your music (they just sit on the side)
    -You can build your own playlists
    -You can use the radio feature, similar to the way Pandora plays music
    -You can make certain songs your favorites
    -You can share the music you like with friends
    -There is some integration with Facebook
    -Very easy to use user interface
    -No major problems...


    -No mobile app/website; due to Apple, Google, Recording Studios, ETC.
    -You have to interact with the page every once in a while to keep the music playing. Overall, not too annoying.

    In general, not too many cons...


    Basically, Grooveshark is one of the top, if not the best, free music player out on the world wide web that is LEGAL. Its wide variety of music, features, is simply stunning. Aside from the fact that mobile devices can't use it, it is nothing but amazing. The memberships are really not that important-the ads don't really bother you too much, and the extra features aren't necessary.

    Personally, I love the fact that you can choose your own music. Pandora drove me nuts by the second time I used it.

    Also, I don't know where the claims of viruses attacking their computers came from. I use a MacBook Pro, 13-inch running OSX 10.7 (Lion), and I have had no trouble. Don't worry about this. As of the date that this was posted, there were no viruses.

    Final Verdict:

    Everyone should use Grooveshark, it is a great website, and it is much better than Pandora. Enjoy this amazing product while it lasts!!!
