Would be great if... 3/5
This app worked on Apple Watch
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By Sioux City
This app forces you to sign in every time and then it will say it doesn’t recognize your account. It works 10% of the time. Extremely frustrating!
Stations play good, but the text gets stuck on one song/artist. I thought last update was supposed to fix this?
Car Play flat out broken 1/5
As in, pressing buttons on the screen has no effect. I don’t think it’s just my car/phone, since other apps work fine.
App cleanup 5/5
By Brian Philly K
This app has been a struggle for a while but it seems like since recent updates have fixed all of the issues I was having. Thanks for cleaning it all up
Why is there a skip limit!!!!! 3/5
By Barking Aardvark
I love this app as I can take my Sirius XM experience with me. Plus, the-demand content is great.
But, if there is one HUGE complaint I have, it has to be he skip-limit imposed on on-demand shows. I understand skip-limits on other services like Pandora, as they use that to influence you to subscribe. But this app only works if you are already a paid subscriber.
I can’t count the number of times the app glitches while listening to 3-hour on-demand programs, resetting to the beginning of the program! With the skip limit, it can take me easily a couple hours to get back to where I left off!!
Please Sirius XM. Consider removing this “feature”.
Text still getting stuck! 3/5
Text is still getting stuck. Update didn’t solve the problem
Battery Drain! 1/5
Needs improvement. This app continues to have a “text freeze” and will not update the song listing when tracks change on the station you’re listening to. Also — it appears to be causing extreme battery drain on my iPhone 8 when listening at moderate volume! Previous versions at least did not have the battery drain problem.
Kind of ugly... 3/5
1. Current song playing still gets stuck. 2. Move the play controls to bottom for more convenience. 3. Would love to see a thumbs up/down feature for giving feedback about the the currently playing song.
CarPlay? Try again. 1/5
The CarPlay feature is nothing. Can’t start new content from the radio nor does it auto resume. Have to pull my phone out to start new content, have to hit play each time I get back in the vehicle.
Here’s the list:
- scrubbing or moving the slider forward and/or backwards is a nightmare. If you do manage to get ahold of the current position, it doesn’t let you know your current position, so you often slide too far forward or backwards and in a show like Howard stern, you can miss a lot of content or you have to relisten to large chunks of show to get to where you want.
- in a download, I come to points where the audio simply stops. Hitting the play button does nothing and if you scrub past the “sticking point” it will play again, but then you run into the aforementioned issues with the slider (see above point). This can happen 5-50 times per downloaded episode (4 hours per show).
- due to the above problems, you often have to stop whatever you are doing entirely to fix the issue, completely defeating the purpose of a “mobile” app. And this is doubly embarrassing for a company whose only product is audio. It’s just pathetic.
- sometimes downloaded shows will disappear entirely from the app for no reason. I’ll periodically lose everything I’ve downloaded for no reason or warning. Then you only get the past x number of shows for Howard stern, so sometimes you cannot re-download when this happens, meaning you miss the entire show and hours of entertainment you paid for. Maybe there’s a way to get it back, I don’t know. Or maybe the app could not be a piece of...
- there’s also a strange thing that appears in my downloaded content that I can’t delete, play, or otherwise get any information on. It’s just there in my downloaded list. Amazingly, it will stay around while the app decides to randomly delete everything else on my phone that I actually want to listen to. And yes, I delete downloaded content as soon as I finish listening.
- even if I’m listening to downloaded content, the app will pause while I’m listening indicating a connection failed and asking me if I want to retry or cancel. Once again, stop being mobile, open the dumb app, tap to make the “online issue” go away even though I’m listening offline. Thank the app for wasting my time.
I’m sure there’s more... this is just the stuff off the top of my head. It’s a piece of crap app and hasn’t been improved since I got it 5 years ago. Sirius must not care about it and after Howard Stern retires, I’m going to mitigate the sorrow of that day by deleting this app and cancelling my Sirius account so I never have to deal with this headache again.
Time for an Apple Watch App!!! 4/5
Great app for iPhone and iPad. However anyone with an Apple Watch will appreciate having the app version to use SiriusXM while working out
I love it!!! 5/5
Can’t live without it!!! Keeps me company on the road.
I love this app! 5/5
I listen to this app often, both live and on demand shows, whether it be music, sports, news, or live games. It is so awesome to have all these channels at one click. I would recommend to anyone who sits in the car or at a desk frequently. So much better than terrestrial radio!
Talk Radio 5/5
Best Talk radio ever!! Good variety of music!!
Sirius/XM TOO EXPENSIVE! 1/5
That's all I have to say about that.
Update not true 2/5
The latest update was supposed to fix this problem but it didn’t. The name of the show almost never matches the program that is playing. Even when I press “Go Live” the program title is wildly inaccurate. I wish you would fix this problem for real and for good.
Not good 1/5
When I can sign in, it’s great. I have had the app for about two months and it has worked for only a couple of weeks.
Text STILL gets stuck 1/5
By HillJack Russell
Even after TWO updates to fix it, the text/screen freeze bug that only happens with the Sirius XM app. And it happens after just ONE song.
Constantly improving 5/5
By Peh Rochester Hills MI
I sent Sirius XM a message about the app screen not refreshing with each new song, they sent out an update within days correcting the problem!
Music titles still don’t advance 3/5
By so all the nicknames are taken
The latest update said it fixed the issue with the display getting stuck on a song. It didn’t...
Location issues 2/5
Great app when it works right. But frequently while listening it’ll cut off and tell me can’t determine location. It’s internet radio, not sure why that should matter.
Love it. But still needs work 4/5
App is a great way to listen to XM radio. But it is time to think about user interface. If I am listening to one station why do I need to get through so many clicks to see other channels? It would have been much easier to click on the “program guide” icon menu to see what is currently being played on other channels and decide if it worth to switch the station before listening and going back in case you don’t like it. Do it at least for at least one subsection music-Rock. Or even better allow the users to build their own favorite channel list and have a peak view of all the programming on them real time.
App is buggy and has limited functionality 3/5
By Lars in Philly
The content is good but the App is buggy and has limited functionality.
Also, they should add a morning alarm clock so that you can set it to turn on your favorite channel to wake up to.
Works as advertised, at times has some issues 3/5
App no longer updates song title
Sirius XM Is the best yet 5/5
By Fact tracker
I enjoy the wide range of views, issues and opinions that SXM provides. The
#1 station for my ears is channel 126
Great app. I enjoy listening while in my cubicle & while traveling via bus, car, airplane, train & walking. I cut the cord & listen to cable news via SXM app. I just need news content not visual content & SXM delivers.
Clunky and Unreliable 1/5
This is one of the few apps that gets worse with every update. Very difficult to rewind and fast forward. Freaks out when you lose the signal. No longer picks up where you left off on a different device. Inaccurate time markers, especially for Howard Stern when the show is live.
Good app 5/5
Good app. I use it a lot. I listen to Howard and political talk shows. Baseball in the summer. Lots of choices
Going downhill 2/5
The latest version of the app is pretty bad. Sure, you can access the network content on your phone or tablet. The volume control disappeared. I’m always having to clear error messages like ‘Trying to find connection’ even though the station is playing fine. On the talk stations, you can’t skip past commercials and get right to the content. Hello! I’m already paying through the nose for your exclusive content! Why are you forcing me to listen to ads or miss big chunks of content? I almost always use the app rather than the actual radio. If you can’t fix the commercial skipping problem, I may just end my subscription completely.
I have an account 1/5
I can’t listen to this on my iPhone with my account
Let’s face it: if the content was available on other apps, this clunky interface would never be used. As a subscriber, I appreciate getting on demand and live streams on my phone for convenience. But the poor performance and absurd navigation is only accepted because we want the content. So, kudos to the team who decided this pre beta version of a real app was ready to shovel down the throats of millions of paying customers. If you want a few more dollars a month for a better app, just ask me to pay for it. It would be worth it to avoid constantly jumping back and forth like a ham handed idiot, looking for the spot where I left off. Do better.
Poor quality control 1/5
The quality control of new releases on this app is terrible. There are always bugs that freeze or shutdown the app. I was stuck listening to a download and couldn’t navigate out of it to hear other channels or even download other content. All the menu options were grayed out. After numerous attempts I deleted the app and reinstalled. Now I can’t even log back in, making the app unusable. Amazing. This app has also had historically bad playback controls. It’s so hard to move forward or back to listen to content. How is this possible — it’s an app who’s primary purpose is to play content?? Even the most basic iOS podcast and music apps have better playback controls Sirius should be embarrassed.
Acceptable but... 3/5
+1 that the current song playing doesn’t update automatically on the UI, kind of annoying.
Update didn’t work 3/5
The text continues to get stuck on the first song played when you open it.
Terrible interface! 3/5
No volume slider, the rewind button is apparently one pixel large and never works. Frustrating.
Please fix 4/5
I am a loyal subscriber but they need to fix the issue causing the album art not matching with the song currently playing. It seems to get stuck on the first song that was played when tuned to channel and that album art remains even after that song ends and new song begins. Also in general it is not the best user face experience. Generally all the features could use some work.
Now we're talking 5/5
The I missed my satellite radio here; In Puerto Rico I tried multiple satellite radio models and they don't work here, so my only option was streaming.
Now, with the text/artwork fix update the app is as it should be . Thanks!
Text is still sticking 1/5
Your last update said that you fixed the problem of the text sticking and not changing when the song changes. It’s still doing that problem. Very annoying for a service that I spend too much money for.
Can’t scrub to a specific spot anymore 1/5
I’m on an iPhone X and for some reason I can’t move the slider to get to different parts of a broadcast. The buttons to skip and rewind work but no way to get in between.
App used to work great 1/5
But now, the title of what I'm listening to never changes. Since I usually listen to stuff that's already started, it also is losing the skip spots unless I close the app and then reopen. And then eventually the cycle continues.
Album art and song info frozen - doesn’t update 2/5
One of the perks of SiriusXM is being able to quickly identify the artist, song title, or other track information.
Please fix this! After opening the app, this gets stuck on the first song that is played.
By Jeff and Grethen
I love this app so much because I love to listen to my channels even KIDZ BOP RADIO I am a fan of KIDZ BOP.❤️
RDS is stuck *FIXED* 5/5
Will update to 5 stars once the song update issue is corrected.
This is a HUGE addition to CarPlay. Really great to be able to use my XM subscription on my radio. Next? Waze, please?
Screen constantly stuck on 1 song! 3/5
With each update, I keep hoping the issue will be resolved. It never fails to get stuck on a song display almost immediately and display nothing else but that one songs info. I hate not knowing what I’m listening to and have no ability to look it up later and save it if I really liked it! Such a pain. Please fix. Otherwise love the app, but this has been obnoxious for far too long (months!).
Could be MUCH better 2/5
So much potential.
Decent audio quality
Ability to modify/create custom mix
The ui is absolutely terrible!
Worst part and reason for 2 stars - now playing info is rarely correct so you never know what is playing
Love the service, hate this app. Aside from the artist/track information not updating as others have mentioned, recently I have noticed this app is causing my phone (7+) to run extremely hot. It hasn’t done this the whole time I have been using it so I have to assume it is related to a recent update. Given that I am paying upwards of 20 bucks a month for an Internet radio subscription I expect a better app. Had an Android phone a while back and never had any of these issues.
Love it 5/5
Great app. Not too many glitches.
Can’t even start 1/5
Can’t really rate it because when I try to log in it says it doesn’t recognize my username or password. I use the same login as the website correct? Because if I try to create account within the app it then says I already have an account and tells me to login. I created a new password and tried again and still get message that it doesn’t recognize me
