  • uSirius - Satellite Radio on the iPhone


    Sirius radio comes to the iPhone with uSirius, an app by Millard Software which allows you to log in to your Sirius account and listen via the iPhone. Still in beta, the app can be downloaded from their repo at
    Code:
    http://www.millardsoftware.com/files/downloads/usirius/iphone/iphone.xml
    (gotta love typing that into the iPhone, heh).

    They do warn that initial loading of the Channel Lineup and Channel Logos takes a while, and the app "may even cause your iPhone/iPod Touch to reboot." But hey, its Sirius, on the iPhone. Serious.

      And both uSirius and Starplyr devs say they are working on iPhone App Store versions - I doubt they'd go to the trouble if it was clearly going to be rejected.

      In the future, you may want to do the slightest bit of research before taking such an absolute position.

      OP: Sirius on FW 2 is in the pipeline - all that's needed is patience! Quote from StarPlayr dev's forum:

      "We do have some good competition for the Sirius iPhone player. We'll see how things shake out in the next month or two.

      Sadly, you lose this one and so do the rest of us.

      You can also download Pocket Tunes on the app store and it has the ability to play Sirius. All you need is a sirius account

      Thanks for the recommendation! This app will play 32bps quality with my Sirius account. I will probably purchase.

      I like how the Mac version of StarPlayr can stream at 128bps even though my Sirius account is capped at 32bps quality. I was hoping I could find a similar app for the iPhone
