GrooveDown is a very easy to use software solution developed to download songs from Grooveshark.
With Java Runtime Environment required to work properly, GrooveDown relies on a well thought out GUI that adopts a tabbed layout for easy browsing.
Users can quickly search for songs, albums, artists and playlists, with the main window showing all results in just a single panel.
A simple click on the plus symbol that appears next to each result is enough to start a download, while for more information on this particular task there's a dedicated tab created in this regard.
Here you can see the downloading song, path, status and progress, while the history and the log screen provide even more details on the previous searches.
The configuration settings are just basic and only allow you to pick the output file name of the downloaded files, set the maximum number of downloads to be performed at the same time and the output location.
While GrooveDown is a basic app and truly does what it says, there are some things to be improved here. First of all, there's no built-in player, so you can't listen to a specific song before downloading it. Secondly, you cannot expand albums and download just a given song, but instead you need to get the whole album.
Mission accomplished. That's the phrase the perfectly describes the way GrooveDown does it job. The app was designed to let you download songs from Grooveshark and it doesn't disappoint its users at all. And with a few improvements in some specific areas, more and more users may be tempted to give it a try.
