Grooveshark: We're not planning on developing for Windows Phone 7
Although we've heard this before from companies and things can change rapidly, at least according to one community manager at Grooveshark, that company won't be making a dedicated Windows Phone app despite already having ones for Android, iPhone (jailbroken), Blackberry and even webOS. In an email back and forth between a customer and Jessica, a community manager at the company the info was revealed:
Of course, reps can be wrong for companies (although Grooveshark is very small, so less likely) and they could change their minds at any point. Still, we're none to happy with that response. Even though we have a working HTML5 version of their site now, having a dedicated app would certainly be more preferential. Hopefully they'll change their minds in the future.

When the platform has 20% or more marketshare they will scramble, but they will have lost out on any potential customers/users as everybody will have all found replacements.
This may also have to do with MS maybe not granting them certification depending on how they gain rights to their songs. I remember a few stories about them being sued by big record labels.
I see none at all...
I would just jot these names down and when their apps come out on windows 8 write to them and say sorry I see you have a new windows 8 app, but I won't be using it...
Grooveshark ... eh.
The disc last year was "wait for Mango", now it's "wait for Windows 8".
Sony had Blu Ray, Xbox had Halo and the Windows Phone has Windows 8. They have built it (nearly) and they will come the money hungry buggers that they are.
Where is that article that show how much MORE monye WP dev make then all other OS dev cause of the small market and app attention!!well i guess they dont like making $$ and lossing 2 dayz of porting the app over with MS easy port tools...
