The SiriusXM App for the iPhone is perfect. This IPad app for Sirius XM won’t download
Least reliable app on my phone
TexasLonghorn95 on 6/20/2018
Sirius is very proud of their new version. It has Howard Stern video that is very pretty - but the core of the app still stinks. It can’t keep a connection, features such as skip forward and back aren’t always available, and sometimes I can’t do anything but play and hope for the best. I’ll bet they’d say it stops streaming because I move around - but Pandora and Spotify don’t have that problem. They charge us extra to use the app but it just doesn’t work. I gave it two stars because the video looks very nice. Now how about some functionality?
Can’t download anymore
RealDeal558 on 6/20/2018
New update broke this function.
Don’t upgrade
JF enola on 6/20/2018
This last upgrade makes the app almost useless especially for Howard Stern content. Can’t download or stream his shows and that’s the only reason I have SiriusXM
Not bad
Keyser Sosze on 6/20/2018
I actually get to listen more to Sirius instead of the 20 mins a day in the car. I’m still a little bummed that we have to pay extra to listen on the app and online. When I first got Sirius in 2005 you could listen online and it was included in subscription. Anyway... The app gets hung up sometimes, especially when downloading, but overall pretty good. Couple of things -Would be nice to know what the data stream usage is, as a lot of carriers don’t have unlimited data. -Please turn off the request to allow notifications that pops up every 2 or 3 days and prevents the app to be used until you dismiss it. Obviously after declining a few times, I don’t want to allow it. Overall a good app.
This app stinks!
GinoandLulu on 6/20/2018
So I’ve been a Sirius radio subscriber for many years. Same account info. The app suddenly won’t access my programming and is asking me for my user id and password. Ok, I’ll go along. I enter it and it says it’s never heard of me. So frustrating! It was working 1 week ago!!
Buggy as hell
Macro Master on 6/20/2018
Ever since they changed the format of the app my channels show the wrong song playing. Even their DJs have said there’s a problem with it. I emailed tech support and they told me to uninstall and reinstall but the same problem. Now they want me to talk to someone about it. Sorry but Slacker radio is cheaper and works.
Need more
JohnEldon on 6/20/2018
This needs a feature update to add Apple Watch. And you need to add radar/rain to your traffic info for navigation.
Update is awful
jenny penny! on 6/20/2018
This latest update basically broke the app. It’s awful now! I go to my favorite channels, but only half of the shows show up under the channel then I have to search for my favorite shows, which won’t show up under “favorite shows”. Plus, I can’t just look for shows without the app changing the show I’m listening to.
Great if you like to watch spinning circles...
christophace on 6/20/2018
Since addition of Howard 360 video, (which seems to missing suddenly) we have a limited window for rejoining audio after we pause, and its impossible to pick up where you left off. This week, I can’t get it to play at all. Tried live audio, on demand, random clips... and the circle just spins.... 6 minutes, nothing. I’ve updated the app, deleted it, reinstalled, signed out, signed back in. Frustrating. Don’t tell me it’s a network issue. Two bars on AT&T LTE is good enough for HD video on YouTube and Netflix- SiriusXM audio shouldn’t be a problem. I pay $27 a month for Howard Stern and have been a loyal customer since 2005. I don’t have a working Sirius device- I only access service through my iPhone 6 Plus. Sirius is slowly convincing me that I can live without this.
Back to Excellence
Hildy, Brooklyn NY on 6/20/2018
There was a little bit of a bug with download availability when this update was released but it is now working perfectly. Sirius XM finally has an app worthy of the service and content it provides... Second to none! Great work on this and thank you for the quick fix!
Irrat8ed on 6/19/2018
This is how I use my app. This is how I’ve used Sirius since I started 12 years ago my SL 100 recorder/receiver. Now I can’t, even after the latest update. For months. Old app was screwed up too. I email. No answer. Twitter customer support. Answer. “Working in it.” Then nothing. Thanks for ruining something that’s supposed to be enjoyable. Thanks for no reply. This is supposed to be a MAIN FUNCTION OF THE APP! Are you professionals? You are wasting my monthly subscription fees and now that I can only stream in the car you are using up my cell phone data to use my services.
Favorites do not work.
Nbksd on 6/19/2018
Favorites do not work.
Still broken..
MateoNY81 on 6/19/2018
Why do I bother paying for this still? You cannot listen to any On Demand or downloaded shows STILL. This is the main reason I have the app.
$5 if you already have auto subscription
Gofortheyesboo on 6/19/2018
Unacceptable that you should have to pay extra to use their app
Don't Update! (Update)
Stonkysock on 6/19/2018
Don't make the mistake of.made and pressed update. You lose your downloads and favorite channels so you have to download your shows again and resave your favorite channels. You can save your downloads, but most of the channels cannot be saved. I could sign out and sign back in, but I refuse do so because it shouldn't be necessary. This is the worst app I have on my phone. UPDATE: Apparently, the problem regarding saving favorite channels has been fixed, which is why I changed my rating. I am recommending that the app be updated. The only reason I am not giving it five stars is because of the download issue that still exists. UPDATE : Please fix the download issue that still exists. Other than that, the app is great. Thank you.
Getting better - still buggy
Cardinals11worldseries on 6/19/2018
This app is a major improvement. I still get errors downloading newer shows On Demand. The error message says, “Not Available,” after I’ve selected the Download function.
Terrible App
Thunder_Up350 on 6/19/2018
Terrible app worse customer support. App always crashes and audio always randomly stops. Also Sirius will allow you to listen and then randomly one day stop your service and demand you pay double to continue streaming. Joke of a company joke of an app.
Works fine for me
AngryKittyCat on 6/19/2018
When it works, it works fine. When Sirius is having problems it works when it wants to. Seems like here lately, I'm always getting notifications about the app being down or there's a problem with their streams. Plus I’m not wild about the new layout with the blocks for each channel rather than the list. But I don’t pay for it so oh well.
Give us back “Restart Show” please
AppleZilla on 6/19/2018
“Back 1 Hour” is useless and arbitrary. When I come into the middle of one of the shows on The Beatles Channel, I loved being able to precisely restart it. Now I’m back to flailing around on the timeline.
Version 5 - Nice Update but....
Gator5000e on 6/19/2018
I like the new swipe between channels feature on my iOS devices. However, it would make more sense to me and would make the app far more useful to be able to swipe between favorite channels instead of having to swipe between all channels. Please at least make it make an option to allow swiping between Favorite channels. Thanks.
One Annoying Flaw
Crawboats on 6/19/2018
This app is great with the exception that about every 3rd time I open it the first thing it wants me to do is approve alerts! It’s gotten so annoying that I’m tempted to click yes which I am sure is the reason it keeps popping up. I should only be required to answer the alert question once every update.
New App Keeps Crashing
LauraInVA on 6/19/2018
The new app crashes on my iPad Air about every 20 minutes. The previous version did not do this.
Downloads don’t work
NAIRBO on 6/18/2018
Downloading Howard episodes complete but can’t listen to them. Tried reinstalling the app but no luck. Big bummer.
On Demand Download Issue
Mirv98 on 6/18/2018
UPDATE (6/18): Sigh, how does this keep taking steps backward? Over two weeks later and after this latest update I can’t even test the download of on demand episodes because they have all disappeared. It was very upsetting to not be able to download and listen on the go (which could be done before the app overhaul), but now I can’t even go back and listen to the on demand on WiFi. What kind of testing is done before releasing updates? I will be canceling this subscription if it’s not addressed on the next update, it’s gotten ridiculous at this point. UPDATE (5/31): The downloads complete now (thank you for fixing that), but the downloads don’t play afterward. A circle just spins and spins and the episode never starts. This is a HUGE component of why I subscribed as I can’t listen live to talk shows, and this is making me strongly consider canceling the subscription. (5/14) The on-demand episodes don’t download now. It appears to download to 99.9% but never completes and allows you to listen offline.
Fix the favorites!
JeffyLamar on 6/18/2018
At first it simply didn't save my favorites. Then it worked fine. Then the "favorites not loading" issue was fixed. I didn't have that issue until the "fix" was issued in the last update. It seems to have caused the issue for me now. It looks like I have favorites, but the boxes remain empty and nothing ever loads. So I've been waiting for a new update to address this and thought I'd get that today but nothing mentioned and after installing the update, no such luck. I even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. Still no luck. FIX THE FAVORITES
Can No Longer Access On Demand Favorites
Copper Commuter on 6/18/2018
On demand favorites disappeared.
Last update wiped out Howard on demand!
sarasikorski on 6/18/2018
Last update wiped out Howard stern on demand.
MarkCMH on 6/18/2018
What happened to all the on demand content? Howard and Mad Dog Unleashed????!!!!!! Just states No Data. What the hell am I paying for?
New Update Erases Favorite Episodes
Oldmanjeenkins38 on 6/18/2018
New update. Lost all my saved episodes for Bonfire.
Demand episodes say “No Data Found”
Pitcher23 on 6/18/2018
Another day, another broken update. Channels show “No Data Found” for on demand shows. Deleted and re installed the app and the problem persists. Please test the updates before pushing them out.
80’s on 8 Big 40 on demand gone...
what is the benefit? on 6/18/2018
Used to look forward to listening to the big 40 countdown on 80’s on 8 each weekend. Like most - I don’t have 3 straight hours to listen to it on air, so instead listened on demand throughout the weekend. This let me pause and pickup where I left off. Now the episodes seem to no longer be available on demand (and what’s left of on demand is very hard to find...). It has instead been replaced with a “reminder” option. What a great feature I am now paying for — reminders instead of on demand... To help compensate for this - it appears they added an option to “restart” the show if you listen online when the show is on air. Bad news - when you do this, pause and try to come back later - it reverts back to whatever is on air at the time. So I got through 10 songs of the 1981 countdown this weekend and gave up. Nice work making a good product worse!
So buggy, it's almost useless. (Updated again.)
Le Doinel on 6/18/2018
It’s impossible even to log in half the time. When you can log in, the app feels like a relic from the iPhone 3g days. Terrible. UPDATE: In the current version of the app, most of my complaints no longer apply. (You can finally restart a show without re-installing the app!) Now it’s just an unremarkable Sirius delivery system, which is all anyone wanted from this app. UPDATE 2: It’s gone back to being buggy; cutting out suddenly and refusing to reconnect without a restart. No biggie, but don’t plan on using this app while you’re at the gym, or running.
Bit of a stumble both!!!
Todman21 on 6/18/2018
The new app is a bit of a stumble both!! Can’t even download shows and listen if I’m on a plane. Fix this NOW!! Update 5.1 Content fully downloads now but still doesn’t play. I’ll move it from 1 star to 2 for the effort. Please look into this. Update 5.1.1 Downloads still don’t play!! Come on guys!! Back to 1 star. I pay a lot of money to have the ability to use the app and download content. It does me know good on a plane.
Skippy stream
banaany on 6/18/2018
The audio stream is not smooth on Lte or even WiFi.
Won’t play.
Matt_B68 on 6/18/2018
The app won’t play. The circle just keeps spinning around the play button. So I updated to the latest version. Now I can’t login. The message says Experiencing Technical Difficulties.
Battery drain
jbuse3 on 6/18/2018
App worked good for about a week. Now I can’t download shows from the app and when I listen live it drains my battery in a hour. I have an iPhone X now and I had the same problems on a 5 and 6. Horrible app.
5.1.0 version no longer launches
Amihaljevic on 6/18/2018
I love this app..... well, “loved” this app. Ever since the upgrade two weeks ago it doesn’t even launch! I get a “Sorry, we are experiencing technical difficulties. 29002” Fix it quick or I’m asking for this month’s subscription back because I have no way to listen other than my iphone, and can’t listen on the app and the website won’t switch from mobile to desktop so I could listen there.
Logging in trouble
Brianna Clark on 6/17/2018
Have trouble staying logged into app, and every time I try logging back in app says it can’t find my email to an account, Love the app when it works!
No more buffer
RS for the money on 6/17/2018
Used to be able to go back and listen to a show I had been listening to a few hours ago. Now it is gone. Sirius XM May be gone soon too if this isn’t fixed. Too many other options to listen to these days.
Great App needs Dark Mode
GoldBreakr on 6/17/2018
Love the new design. Only missing a dark mode option. Hopefully it’ll be in a near future update.
Updated app is a disaster!
peppy932 on 6/17/2018
I’ve been a subscriber to XM since the beginning but when my subscription is due for renewal this month, I’m gone! The new app is a disaster. Functionality has been removed in exchange for some snappy icons. I get less options for listening than ever. Amazing in a tome where most providers are giving you more prions to listen to your favorites at a time convenient to your schedule. Time for me to move to another format
Horrible App
Ihatebobmelvin on 6/17/2018
Trying to watch Howard Stern video is nearly impossible. Every time I call SiriusXM they tell me to delete & re-download the app. I do this almost daily & that only works 10% if the time. Custom service is the absolute worst!
Love the new app but where’s the video?
Johnyohio on 6/17/2018
Had video but after update it vanished. Now I hear them talking about it on Stern and new videos post but my app doesn’t have it. Where is it?
New version needs work fast! On Demand is broken!
Dbat777 on 6/17/2018
I mainly listen to Sirius Xm during football season and I listen to it a LOT. So I’m very familiar with the old app. I listen in my car and then listen on my phone so I can hear whole shows. I also download quite a few of the shows to listen to them offline as well. This has worked great for the last 3 years or so. Just tonight however I downloaded a show and was listening to it. Restarted the app and was presented with ‘content no longer available.’ This makes no sense as the content aired earlier today and it was just playing? I finally got it to play the download but when I try to scrub forward half the show, as I’ve listened to half already, it forced me to start all over. This is terrible. Also I notice other shows expire very fast. The old app I kept some shows on my phone for months. It’s much better to let the consumer decide when to erase, besides if I downloaded it why is it being removed so fast? Please fix this soon or I plan to cancel
Difference between SiriusXM App & SiriusXM in your vehicle
Sward1961 on 6/16/2018
When I first bought SiriusXM it was specifically for use in my wife’s 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. I then added the app to my phone because my 2005 dodge 1500 quad cab didn’t have the ability to get SiriusXM. I specifically like listening to channel 130 EWTN Catholic radio. What I want to know is since I bought a new 2017 Nissan Rogue why I can get channel 130? It scrolls from 129 to 131. I don’t have this problem in the Dodge Grand Caravan. Is this something just with the Nissan Rogue or is this with all Nissan models? All I can say is that I am not getting what I am paying for, and am considering canceling my SiriusXM contract. Unless SiriusXM can get this fixed. S. Ward Houston, TX
Previous shows are not listed
TashTish on 6/16/2018
SiriusXM claims a five-hour buffer, but previous partial shows are not listed for access. For example, if it's 8:15pm on Saturday, one used to be able to access the 3pm On the Aisle show (partially) on the On Broadway channel, but now that is no longer possible. Please fix!
Don’t update your app!
quxd41a on 6/16/2018
I have an iPhone X - ever since I updated the app-it only plays half of the time. It is super unstable. There seems to be no buffer. Something is not working correctly! Wish I had not updated!
No Programming Lineup?
Nutritiongirlamy on 6/16/2018
Why does the new app not feature a daily programming lineup when you are in the channel?
Awesome app. Lifetime subscriber.
dephtones69 on 6/15/2018
I love this app. Best entertainment app period. Having the lifetime subscription is awesome. Thousands of hours of on demand entertainment. Don’t know what else can be said. I love sirius. Lifetime sub since 2007.
