GrooveDown is a simple download application intended to download Grooveshark music and store it locally on your storage drive. Grooveshark is an online streaming service founded and based in United States. Grooveshark does not allow users to download music as well as playlists and the answer to the problem is “Groovedown”.
Groovedown has an easy to understand graphical user interface based on windows UI guidelines with integrated auto update, so that the updates will happen on the air without the need of re-installing the new version. Also, the download and search music section have different lists which helps reduce the confusion for less experienced users. It also logs all events and errors so that the user can easily copy paste the log in case of errors and offer the ability to choose variety of saved paths.
GrooveDown has a well thought out tabbed layout for easy browsing which requires Java Runtime Environment to run properly. User can use the search panel to search for songs, albums, playlists and artists in a single list/panel. Plus sign besides each result when clicked starts downloading the track. To check more info about the track, a dedicated tab has been provided. The settings provided to configure the application are basic allowing you to set default save path and maximum parallel downloads. The feature set is quite limited, but that does not stop this little piece of software to get the work done.
As compared to other comparative programs, GrooveDown help the users to download the music and playlists on their devices for free rather than streaming online every time and connect to internet only for listening to music.
Though GrooveDown does not disappoint when downloading tracks, there are some room for improvements and new features. When looking at other similar applications, there is a great feature missing in GrooveDown of “in-built player”. One needs to note that it also contains adware and no means of opting out are available. Major drawback of GrooveDown is that, downloading of a single song from an album is not possible. Instead, one has to download the whole album.
Groovedown is a company that develops free software majorly for Windows Platform.
