Good but needs work and being neglected
This app is a fantastic idea. It's like an XM radio with ostensibly easily updated firmware. Unfortunately, most of the features that seem simple to update are not being done. For example, as far as I can see, only 10 favorites are possible. That seems like an easy update, but just doesn't get done. Time shifting seems simple, not done. I had the program just die on me and had to reinstall it and set all my favorites. This application could be amazing, but right now its just good. I would even up it one star if they would allow for more than 10 favorites as ALL my other xm radios (past and current) do. Not sure what they are waiting for. Its like they put a lot of time into development and just stopped upon release and some bug fixes. Sound could be a little better too.

Pause please
The app is good overall but could be great with the ability to pause, rewind & fast forward.

Better then expected
Worth the $110 for the dock. Wish it could run in the background. And when on a baseball game would it be that hard for a diamond with base runner indicators along wth the score?

Needs Time Shifting... 4/5 Great System
First off - this is an app made for an XM system, so if you are rating negatively because you don't want to buy a skydock - GTFO. Review: Great layout and functionality. Please program some time shifting functionality so this can compare to my Sirius Sportster :) love the fact you can transmit iPod music as well! And this is to Apple - let this app run in the background!!!

Good but not yet great...
I've had Skydock for about 5 months. I like the app but it needs a few improvements: I like to toggle between a couple of my favorites. What I REALLY do is listen to one station and monitor whats playing on the other without having to turn to it until something I want to hear comes on. Skydock doesn't make this easy. 1. You can't rearrange the order of what's in favorites without removing them and re-adding them in the order you want. 2. I do like the "show favorites" list for quick launch but you can't monitor what's playing on your other stations from there. 3. So, whenever I want to monitor a couple different stations, I use the upper right arrow to view channels by category which also lists what's playing on each one. However, if I go to my favorites category and select something, and tap the upper right arrow again, it does not default back to my favorites list. It defaults to the XM category the channel that's currently playing is a part of. I have to swipe to get to favorites again since the channels I monitor aren't from the same category. This process is certainly not ideal since it all happens while I'm in the car. Yeah, yeah, yeah...safety first, which is why I want the developers to make this easier. 1. Let me change the order favorites 2. Allow the upper right arrow category viewer to default to show favorites first (in the order you have them in)

Useful and solid
This app and the skydock do what it is I wanted by getting the sound to the car audio but the FM sound quality is lacking. Like was mentioned in other reviews, I experience the compression surge as well. I want to try aux connection to see if that is any better
