• Goodbye Starplayr

    It was a nice dream. Sirius XM satellite radio on the iPhone via the App Store. Unfortunately after StarPlayr was submitted to the App Store it was never able to make it through (presumably some Sirius XM pressure was behind the denial). Now StarPlayr is officially done for good.

    What have we learned? If you have something cool going on many different platforms and haven't had legal troubles from companies like Sirius XM then by all means DO NOT progress what you are doing to the iPhone. It appears that the move towards iPhone awesomeness caught a little bit too much attention (in the wrong way) from Sirius XM. StarPlayr has been enjoyed by many on their Macs and Windows Mobiles; further enjoyment by many more will never come to fruition.

    While NiceMac doesn't come out and say directly that Sirius XM has shut them down it wouldn't be a stretch.
