Sirius XM app for Android ‘coming soon’

| April 24, 2010 | 2 Replies

Well being a sirius customer myself having the ability to listen to it on my phone is pretty decent. The app does have limited channels though which is not acceptable on my part. One of the main channels i think alot of people would like is “Howard, and Howard 101″ For some reason they stripped these channels from the mobile app. Also what some people don’t like is that you have to pay extra just to listen on your mobile phone. In alot of peoples opinions they think that since you already pay for the subscription sirius should provide the mobile listening for free, but sorry that’s not the case. So with apple already having this app for almost a year and blackberry already having it as well its finally headed to android. So to all the android fans out there keep your eye out because its coming.

iPhone and iPod touch users may have had a Sirius XM app for close to a year now, but it looks like Android users will soon finally be able to get in on some mobile streaming as well. While there’s still no specific launch date, the app is apparently “coming soon,” and looks to be mostly identical to its iPhone OS counterpart, complete with support for streaming over both WiFi and 3G. Somewhat curiously, however, Sirius XM seems to be saying that the app will only be available for the Droid and Nexus One, although that’s a bit puzzling considering they’re not the only Android 2.1-ready phones with fast processors (if those are indeed the only requirements). Full press release is after the break, and you can sign up to be notified of the app at the link below.
