Sirius Satellite Radio
What has ever happened to the app that was rumored to be in the works for Sirius/XM? I have it in my car but would love to have it on my iPhone as well, especially if it has the some functionality as the internet radio does, with NFL games.

Recenty, I've been wondering whether Apple intends to include that capability within the final OS 3.0. Many of us remember the RSSPodcaster app that was initially rejected from the App Store due to duplication of iPhone OS functionality.
Might the same be true for Sirius?
I'm all for that app as I would hope its performance would be better than through Pocket Tunes, Wunder Radio, or even ORB.

I have Sirius in my truck and for some reason the channel is stuck on 8, which is the 80's. I've tried to move it, but it's stuck...
I'd love to have this for the iPhone too. I guess you'd need a wifi network for it to work? If so, I might not get it because I have several internet radio apps, the best being Internet RadioBox, which is also stuck on Big R Radio 80's. Hmmm.....

You may want to look for the manual to see how to toggle between entering channel numbers and presets. Hopefully it's a simple fix like that.
On the topic of the new app, I'm wondering why they don't have Stern on there(even though I'm not a stern fan) if they want to really push it, unless they plan to have a special extra-special version with him for more money.
A lot of serious competition(pun intended) out there from pandora and last.fm, among others, so you have to wonder if people are going to want to shell out $3-9 a month just for their favorite channels.
I'm personally debating it, but I had 3 xm units at one point and still almost excluslively listened to the one I had at work, finally got down to 1 unit and am not sure if I can justify bumping my bill back up again to have my channels with me.

Would someone with PTunes and this XM app please check to see if you can get the XM station "Sur la Route?" It's all I listen to in the car, and would be worth another small monthly subscription to me, but only if I can listen on my iPhone. Thanks!

So did Pocket Tunes lose Sirius/XM support?
EDIT: NM, I just had to update the list. It didn't save my favorites after I re-installed the app. Also, those of us who listen to 202 have been screwed over. It's a DRM Windows only feed now.
