Grooveshark has been developing mobile apps for their hugely popular streaming music site. The Blackberry and Android apps have been available for a while, but the iPhone app has been pending iTunes App Store approval. Shockingly, the app was rejected by Apple.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone I highly suggest you download the app and give it a try. Why you ask? Well how about access to any song in Grooveshark streaming to your iPhone over 3G whenever you want? How about access to your Grooveshark favorites and playlists (for users with accounts)?
