Grooveshark, the popular music, radio streaming service doesn’t have an inbuilt feature to download songs.
Unlike YouTube video downloaders, there are not many Grooveshark downloaders available. GrooveDown, a freeware tool can solve this problem.
Features of GrooveDown
- Search songs using the built in search feature (If you have no idea of what to search then take a look at the Popular songs from the Tools menu).
- The Search list tab displays the search results, double-click a search result to add it to Download list.
- Under Download list tab, click Download to start downloading the selected songs.
- You can change the Download folder from the default folder to any place of your choice using Settings menu.
Pros and Cons
Pros: No installation needed, so it’s portable. The relevancy of the search results is also good.
Cons: The log with time stamp (below the search bar) is not needed, it just adds to the interface clutter.
Is it Legal?
Nope, it’s not. Grooveshark clearly states in its TOS that the music should be streamed not downloaded (source)! Although, the developer of GrooveDown claims that downloading from Grooveshark is not illegal unless and until you share it (source). But still many doubt the TOS of GrooveDown, as it’s not professional and also it’s against the TOS of Grooveshark.
In short, if you want to support Grooveshark then don’t use GrooveDown.
