Hello… is this app still being updated or maintained? I ask because when I try to download it, it appears I'm getting an older version than what's listed on the page with release notes… and none of the added features (enabled by a plug in?) appear to work at all.

Is this app no longer supported/maintained? I've downloaded it and it appears to be an older version than what's listed, and none of the new features (via plugin?) are working.

How come every time I click on a link (i.e. enter text into the search bar and hit return) it just opens up the grooveshark website in firefox?

Hey Jake, don't know if it's just me but as of the latest version of Grooveshark your "app" is no longer blocking the ads, nor do the keyboard media keys work any longer. I've tried completely removing the app and reinstalling the latest version but to no avail.

I noticed that you said version 0.051 is out but when I download the latest version it says it's version 0.05.

Thanks

I've ditched Grooveshark, but your app definitely wins as far as aesthetics compared to their "player".

this is amazing... literally would be perfect if i could minimise it. It bugs the hell out of me and gets in the way of things because it i can't get to my desktop with this running. Please fix it!

You can always hide it by pressing command + h.

Hey... i've installed this and copied the files inside the library folder to my library but still get the fluid bars and the black bar in grooveshark.... what did i do wrong?

I just put up a bugfix release. The file that goes into Library/Preferences is the one that controls window appearance. If the new release's plist doesn't fix things for you, disable the status bar, etc in the View menu, and switch the window style to "Chromeless" in Preferences -> Appearance

Very nice! I paid for the desktop app once but I don't feel like it adds anything to the experience other than support for media keys, so it's kind of just a waste of money. If they were to add some exclusive features to the app I might pay for it again.

Until then, your app is an awesome solution. So far it's working great, just one minor annoyance; the pause media key works as expected but when I press it again to resume play it starts from the beginning of the song again.

I've done a number of bugfixes including correcting the error play restarting the song instead of resuming it. I'll be putting up the updated version 0.04 with a bowtie-like mini mode either today or tomorrow.

Awesome, thanks so much for your hard work! Do you possibly have a Twitter or something to follow updates on this app?

I'll port this to Prism so it can run on Windows once I get it feature-complete and stable. It's too much effort to develop for two platforms at once.
