Find music and play it on your iPhone with this online music database app.
I wondered how Grooveshark was able to avoid the record industry lawsuits faced by other on-demand streaming companies like Imeem and Seeqpod. Turns out, it wasn't.

Also: The Weather Channel has a new, ad-supported iPhone app; SeeqPod has filed for bankruptcy protection; and AdMob launches a new iPhone Download Exchange Program.
