Just trying it right now! a must have, works very well:
Fast download time of songs, low footprint on cpu usage and memory. A future succes! thanks for that.
Two things though:
No icon in app list, have to launch it from xterm "groove"
And, it seems that the "add to playlist" and "playlist" items has no effects.... Have to choose manually a new song when first one is finished.
Would be very cool if those features were made avaiable, or if at least, the app could play next song in list automaticaly cause even if the title is search "song", you can enter an artist name and the app find all of this artist song.
But very cool for a first shot, thanks.

I have uploaded a new version with *some* playlist support and download progress bars. I also added a .desktop file

hi Dotblank!
Thanks for your efforts. By the way, not meaning to be "nasty", but I would like the previous release back!!! I explain:
The last one was playing songs very well, and you could keep the app open and add songs for as long as you wanted; this one exit with fault after few seconds of playing...
The playlist menu still do nothing, at least for me! When you hit the "queue" button, to add songs to the supposed play list, it downloads them, witch in my opinion is faulty, but anyway, I was not able to know if the added songs would play because as I stated before, the app exit (close) before the end of the first song!
A suggestion:
Would not be better to have the possibility to tick (check) the songs you want to listen directly on the result list, then play the selected songs? Maybe after parsing the list to find the next checked. And so the playlist menu would have for only purpose to show the list of only "ticked" items.
Well I'm not sure my explanations are so clear! By the way, previous release was playing correctly, this one doesn't!

when the app exit, there is a "segmentation fault" listed in xterm. I've also noticed that if you don't "queue" anything, the song plays flawlessly till the end, but as you add one to queue, the current song stop and the app exit with that seg fault ~ 20 secs later.

When I choose a song to play it always plays some other song that isn't even listed in the search I made.

This works amazingly good. My girl and her 3gs is jalous like hell now

Cant wait to see this evolve

Only issue i had so far is that it didnt start the download of 1 song.. but thats out of 20 songs.. and it might aswell have been my connection that was slow for a moment
