  • 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.

      will this work over 3g? (I know it's not out yet but can I stream over the 3G network?)
      Would also be nice if we had a means of recording songs and integrating with itunes

      it should work over 3g since it worked over edge on my 2g before it broke.

      Really? You're using a release version of uSirius "on 2.1"? Wow...that is amazingly unexpected.

      If you legitimately have a 1.1.4 app running under 2.1, that's Front Page news...it should be kicked to mods along with TUAW et al immediately. I don't know of ANY app that "just worked" under both FW versions - let alone this one. Which I'm pretty familiar with...

      Sure you're not just troubleshooting a beta version in the wrong forum?

      Never. Gonna. Happen.

      Recording content is one of the first pieces of functionality Sirius demands be absent in any new apps/hardware they help with/condone. Like uSirius and Star Playr for the iPhone.

      Sorry.

      Below you will first see the e-mail I sent to the creator of uSirius and the reply I received on 9/29:

      Sep 28

      COULD YOU PLEASE PROVIDE AN UPDATE? I UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE CREATING AN APP TAKES TIME BUT YOUR LAST UPDATE WAS 20 DAYS AGO. I HAVE EMAILED BEFORE ASKING FOR AN UPDATE, COULD YOU PLEASE PROVIDE SOME INFO? THANK YOU

      Dude,

      You don't need to shout!

      I had to take a month off and work on five different web sites for clients.
      I finished four of them, but I'm putting the last one on hold for a little
      bit, to work on uSirius..

      You'll hear news soon, I promise.

      Thanks,
      -- Jason

      I'm surprised you got any response at all with that tone...you DO understand he doesn't work for you, right? Sending loud, demanding messages aren't gonna motivate anyone to finish the app sooner.

      And all caps? Jesus Christ...

      Beautifully handled all around.

      I am sorry that you interpreted my email as being negative (as did the folks at uSirius). I was only asking for an update I didn't demand anything and in fact stated in my message that I understood creating apps takes time. As for the caps, I was only hoping to catch their attention as my other two emails went un-noticed. I was only trying to get information on an app that myself and others have been awaiting and I was glad to get a response this time to my question. I do appreciate your opinion and I am sorry that you seem to look for the negative in things.

      It's currently in private beta and not available for public download. Once a version is released, you can be assured it will be dropped into the MMI slipstream and you can grab it then.
