Anyone know if XM is developing a application for the iPhone? I know there is the uXM but it requires a jail break phone and I am getting a new 3g.

Thats crap, I don't want to have to pay another monthly fee for what I already get online. I was hoping the uXM guys would create an official version for the App store so I can use my existing login/password for xmonline.

Should be free if you have an XM account. I would love to get O&A on my iPhone without having to carry around my xm radio.

This is not true if its the link he posted above. The reason why I say that is because I've got the same service (or demoed) it on my Blackberry and they wanted to charge me more on top of what I pay. I complained and was told it was not XM but a 3rd party company who is licensed to stream out the audio and your paying for that even if your a current XM customer.

Try AOL radio. It's free and works great on EDGE.

Download the FREE Pandora App and then you won't give a rat's patoot about paying $13/month for Sirius or XM.

theres no reason XM cant make their own app, charge a minimal fee, and put it on iphone
but logic doesnt always win out, does it?

Sirius Rocks. I hope there will be an app that can play the sirius stations like it does on my laptop now. That way I can listen to Derek & Romaine in the evenings :-)

Combine Pandora and AOL Radio, both free apps and you have quite a bit of content, including sports and a lot of other stuff.

Not saying it is better or worse than satellite, just saying it is a pretty awesome collection of content to play on the iPhone for people who like to listen to a myriad of things on the radio.

Yeah but between XM and Sirius I have about 300+ channels to search myself, plus numerous other advantages, you cant compare IMO

You can always try AOL Radio for iPhone. We have over 350+ stations and we include talk and news stations from across the U.S. The app won the 2008 Apple Design Award for best iPhone Entertainment application.

All of our apps are available via iTunes or iPhone App Store.
