    We'd like to announce a new iPhone web app!

    JamJockey (www.jamjockey.com) allows you to search for any song and stream it right from the Safari web browser. No app download required! Just simple, free, unlimited streaming of any song you want to hear.

    Thanks to HTML 5, JamJockey looks and feels like a native iPhone app. Moreover, audio playback is fully integrated with the iPhone's native controls, so it supports background audio and headphone controls!

    Along with instant streaming, the app also incorporates album coverart for a nice look, and has a functioning playlist and favorites list so it's actually useful!

    No signup required, all playlist data is stored locally in your browser.

    Give it a try and let me know what you think! Just visit www.jamjockey.com on your iPhone.

    Feedback would be greatly appreciated, either on this forum or email us at holler@jamjockey.com. As always, we have a few bugs to iron out.

    Wow, neat app! Found all the songs I searched for and has a pretty slick UI.

    I'm impressed you got this all to work in the browser.

    Mate this is awesome. Found albums that the likes of spotify and napster doesn't have and i pay for those.

    Are you allowed to say what your music sources are? If not no worries.

    So far so good though, feedback i have is, i would like to be able to find an album then sub menu down to all the songs in that album and then play them in sequence (if thats even possible)

    Brill though! Facebooked it and twitter too ;)

    Thank for the positive feedback and support! It's great to hear from users.

    We want to improve this app around the feedback from our users, so we'd be happy to take any suggestions :)

    I don't want to give away our sources for music, but as you can see we have plenty of it. Search by album is a great suggestion, I think we can get that done in a few weeks.

    In the mean time, we're working on a little surprise...coming soon!

    Awesome app. Great works.

    One thing you could definitely improve is speed. Couldn't listen to a song without a pause right now.

    Since we don't host the music, we unfortunately cannot control download speed. I'd definitely recommend using this over Wifi though, if not for speed then for the data savings (unless you are among the lucky with unlimited data).

    I'm *attempting* to get offline caching of songs to work. I have this working fully in chrome, but there appears to be issues with getting Mobile Safari to play nice. Will continue hacking!

    I'm thinking the next feature to add is integration with your Grooveshark account. Any thoughts?

    Wow, this is really cool. We're building a app for a band (like mobileroadie, mobbase, etc). Did you make any of the source code avail as an example? I'm very interested in learning how to build some of these capabilities with HTML5/Sencha.

    Cool webapp!
