NiceMac readies uSirius StarPlayr app for iPhone

updated 09:50 pm EST, Wed January 28, 2009

Sirius XM iPhone app

NiceMac is preparing to submit the uSirius StarPlayr for the iPhone to Apple for approval, unnamed sources have told Orbitcast. Although the approval process can take hours or months, the process allegedly will begin on January 31st. Customers thus far have been able to stream Sirius XM radio content online for free, but that is about to change very soon. The company on Tuesday confirmed the rumored price changes, justifying the move by explaining that the audio quality will be enhanced by March 11th.

In the time that has spent working on the StarPlayr app, several similar services have been added to the App Store. Pandora has maintained the top rank in the free music apps, although the presentation of music is slightly different than the satellite music channels.

Both Sirius and XM customers will have to pay an extra $3 per month for the streaming channels. Existing users can still 'lock in' the free service before the March deadline.

    This article is totally incorrect. The application is NOT being made by Sirius XM it is being created by nicemac. Its time to get off of orbitcast and over to siriusbuzz.
