GrooveMobile for Windows Phone 7.1/7.5
If you are familiar with the work of XDA member scilor, you´ll remember this app was previously made for WM with very good acceptance. Now it´s time for the Windows Phone version. GrooveMobile is an application like Pandora which uses GrooveShark to play music on your your device. Just search for your favorite songs and play them by selecting any entry you like. According to some members , this app is working only on Windows Phone 7.1/7.5 with Mango updates.
The application can be found for free in the original thread.
Please be aware that this app is in alpha state, so bugs are expected and the developer is counting on your feedback to improve future versions.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
