Grooveshark releases HTML5 mobile app

Following in the footsteps of the likes of the FT and Kobo, Grooveshark has unveiled a beta version of an HTML5 mobile app.

Since its inception, the music-streaming service has come under increased legal pressure, largely over licensing rows. Native apps were pulled from both the iOS App Store and Android Market, and the company is currently being sued by EMI (Reuters) and other labels (Gizmodo). However, the new web app again makes the service readily available for mobile users, enabling them to search for music, listen to 'stations' and browse popular tunes. Background audio worked nicely in iOS when we tested the beta.
