    uSirius is a new app for the iPhone or iPod touch, which was created by Milliard Software.

    The app. lets you have Sirius radio on your iPhone or iPod touch. You have to have firmware 1.1.4. The app. is also currently in the beta development stage. It looks like you also have to have account info. but im not sure...

    Here are some screenshots...

    Cool, Just installed it.

    Working great on wifi. I like the channel logo's, have to admit I did not know the channels even had their own logo's, but maybe my sirius tuner is just old. :)

    Wow, this works SO much better than I was expecting. Even on Edge. Big Kudos for this app. Hope this can make the transition to the 3g phone.

    Do you have to have a certain Sirius membership or just input your information after install?

    You have to be a sirius subscriber, and have a login to the streaming service on their site. If you are a sirius subscriber it's free to use.

    I lost my password and username for Sirius online and my subscription is in my dads name so I need him to retrieve it for me. I'm assuming the app lets you listen to everything available online. Is this true? Also this may be a stupid question but can you use headphones to listen? I can't wait to use this app it looks great. Hopefully I'll get my log in info back today.

    Who cares....GEAUX TIGERS!!!!! Glad to see another LSU fan...

    Anyway, I would assume that you could use headphones and that they would broadcast all of their channels.

    Nice I haven't seen any other LSU fans here.

    BTW thanks for posting the app. This is just one more reason I won't get the iphone 3G until it can be jailbroken and apps are updated to run on it.

    all of the channels are brodcasted. I have had little latency, and you can in fact use your headphones just like using your ipod.

    can't wait for an XM version, so I can stop relying on my server at home to listen to O&A on my touch (or future iPhone). I subscribe to Sirius as well, but really only listen to Buzzsaw or Classic Vinyl / Rewind when O&A have an off day.

    Not every sirius channel can be used. Only what sirius offers online. Still I nominate this app as the best iPhone app ever. Having sirius anywhere I am is awesome.

    I installed this via Installer but for some unknown reason it is not listed as installed. So I can use it fine but am not gonna get updates as Installer doesn't seem to think I have installed it.

    I really hope that this will be available to non-jailbroken phones through the app store.

    For those of you who have used it, how good is the sound quality over Edge? Was there any choppiness or sound scrambling?

    Once a station connects I haven't noticed any choppiness or quality loss on EDGE. For me the quality has always been great where ever I am.

    That sounds great. How long does it take to connect to a station?

    When I tried it on edge it buffered for about 7-10 seconds. I didn't let it continue playing because I have a terrible data plan but it started fine after, like I said, 7-10 seconds.

    Thanks........But, I still can't seem to find it. If I go to the apple.com to downloads and then search for "usirius" I can find it. Am I looking in the right spot?

    It's a third party app so I don't think that going to apple.com will work. After I added the source I found it in Installer on my iPhone with no problem. Did you put the source into your iPhone correctly?

    not sure I will try again. Just type the source into the address bar within safari, right?

    I really appreciate the help!
