No update love
I really enjoyed this app for awhile. However, things have changed. XM/Sirius apparently is not doing anything with this app anymore (Notice no update since Sept. '10). What does this mean. Poor images (no retina), poor multitasking (Why can't it use the Fast App Resume Features instead of loading the entire app again on switch). I would switch to the internet streaming version, but that completely defeats the purpose of satellite radio. I want to be able to drive and not loose a station because of reception. XM please update the app, add some features, polish her up and give us our monies worth. And pay Howard the money you owe him. ;)

Skydock abruptly quits working!
Twice since I have owned this app it has quit working for multiple days. Tech support is not helpful and wastes my time. Great when it works. Unfortunate that I pay for service that isn't delivered. Has occurred with separate iPhones I own.

My SkyDock also quit working, abruptly
Like others here, my SkyDock quit working, after a year of fine service. Tech support is clueless, really clueless. It seems to be a problem with the current version (2.1.8), and my iTOuch and also iPhone 4. I have logged over 2 hours with tech support to no resolution The error was dock not detected.but the local stereo store helped me for free. The problems a) I had a case on my iPhone 4 (duh!) and once I upgraded my itouch to newest iPod software and re installed rev 2.1.8 it works. But do not depend on email tech support, i got nothing from them.

Love this App / Skydock Device
Just picked up my Skydock and started using this app yesterday and it's amazing. Having gone from a Sirius Stilletto in my car to this blew my mind. It has all the features you'd expect from a Sirius/XM radio, and then goes above and beyond by adding the ability to tag songs so you can remember them for a later time, and also allowing you to toggle the radio (mute/unmute basically) while you're listening to your music library or taking a phone call etc... If I can't find a song I like playing on SiriusXM, I'll start playing my own music from my iPhone, and then occasionally toggle the mute/unmute to check and see whats playing on the radio. I've also never experienced a crash or anything that has caused the app or device attatched to it to work improperly. I have an iPhone 4

Problem with upgrade fixed
Many of the reviews mention a problem with upgrading to this version. Once I upgraded, I also had a problem with loading -- the endless message that the app was loading. I tried trashing and reinstalling the app, without any change. Finally, I called XM and told them the problem. They told me they would reset the unit remotely, to just unplug the Skydock and plug it back in. Do the same with the iphone by turning it off and on (not a factory reset, just power down). I did so. The reset lost all my saved channels and tagged songs but it wasn't a big deal. As soon as I hooked up the iphone to the Skydock it worked. So far (day 2) no problems, though it is a bit slow loading on a iphone 3gs with OS 4.3.2. However, everything worked post-reset.

Needs an update
I wish it would show the album artwork for the current song. Needs to have the same look as the SiriusXM Internet Radio app.
