Is this really a surprise to anyone who was following the whole Sirius StarPlayr for the iPhone debacle? No wonder Nicemac said their iPhone StarPlayr app was "not rejected" but rather "not approved". It looks like they ran into some sirius issues with Sirius XM and not Apple. Which I might point out, is what many of our readers predicted.
Could in their "best interests" mean Sirius XM told them to close shop or they will shut them down themselves?
So what do you think? Nicemac never seemed to have issues before with their software. Whether if it was for Windows Mobile or Macs. This iPhone app may have brought too much attention and Sirius XM said that's enough.
Maybe we will see a official Sirius XM app in the App Store sooner rather than later. Hmm... we have a feeling it will be sooner.
