Very disappointing update
We waited this long for a half-baked update? The iPhone 6 and 6 plus were release six months ago and you release an update that doesn't support their screen sizes? The interface is a jumbled mess of random text and links that is worse than the previous app. The on demand streaming is still hit or miss. For the past several hours it seems to have totally stopped working with no episodes showing up for the listed shows and if you close the app and restart a show later it starts about two minutes before where you left off so you have to listen to something you already listened to. It also doesn't show the time of the show left and where you are in the show unless you try to navigate to a different time. Even then it doesn't show seconds, only minutes. It also still streams shows if you're connected to the Internet even if you have downloaded the show to the device. The old app did the same thing and it makes no sense to use up data when the show is downloaded locally.
It's very disappointing that the app design and functionality is so poor for a service that charges a substantial fee to use. Every free music streaming app I have used is much better designed and reliable than the SXM app. I didn't like the old app much at all, but I wish I could go back to it. Next time, have some people test your new app before rolling it out because there are way too many UI issues and functionality issues for this to have been tested well.
New scanning slider does not show time, so when you try to get back to where you were its a guessing game. The scrubbing is also jumpy and glitchy as hell, it'll stop where it wants, not where I let go, very annoying. The whole new look and feel of the app is very cluttered and confusing. The new segments section is useless, so basically I can go back and listen to every commercial spot at my leisure? Great!!! So stupid. Hopefully sirius is getting extra ad revenue for now having print ads for their app users. Maybe my stock will finally go up. I do not need a full description of every channel and show in my favorites. They're MY favorites, pretty sure I know what the hell it is. That's a waste of space and makes my favorites very cluttered. And finally, still unstable. Crashes all the time. It's crashed on my about 5 times already today. I download a lot of talk shows like Howard and Jay Thomas so I can listen to them at the construction site, well since this new update, my downloaded shows constantly pause and buffer while the app tells me "network connection poor". Well how do you like them apples? It's supposedly downloaded onto my phone, yet a poor data signal causes it to skip or not play at all? This makes my subscription almost worthless now. If you have constant wifi and listen to music channels, I'm sure this app is adequate. But so far, not for people that work out and about.
LATEST UPDATE A MESS
The new updated interface is a huge mess! All of my favorite channels are out of order now. They have been put into some generic order that makes it inconvenient to find one of my stations. Also, in the favorite shows folder theres a long station description at the top of that menu now which means I have to scroll down a lot to get to the available shows. The station description is so unnecessary since I already selected the show as a favorite. Next, the new scrubber is probably one of the biggest messes of the update (not to mention the scrubber never worked properly in past versions). Anyway, I like to listen to a lot of talk radio programs on-demand and I often like to jump around the program but the new scrubber doesn't even show you where you are in terms of time. Just a random circle on a line with indications for act breaks. Once you touch the circle to scrub around you dont even know where you are moving from and end up at some other random spot seconds or minutes away from where you started. Just simply display the time right under that bar throughout the show like in the past updates! What a disaster! Please fix ASAP! I use this app every day. I pay for internet service only so this is the only way I can listen throughout the day!!!
