Ultra simple Satellite Radio audio player for Sirius XM subscribers. One if its best features is accessibility.
StarPlayrX for iOS is a simple and easy-to-use streaming satellite radio app.
It requires a streaming satellite radio account or trial.
StarPlayrX is accessible and one of its features is the magic tap that toggles a stream. Sighted users can also double at the player view to pause.
The player currently supports music, talk and sports radio stations that matches the user's subscription. It currently does not include Xtra radio stations.
StarPlayrX organizes channels within categories. SPX groups these categories by type. All the talk channels are located together under the Talk heading. Also, the All category is located under Other header towards the bottom.
Each category groups channels logically. For instance all the rock channels are located together with the Rock category and specific artist channels are in the Artists category. Categories and their channels are subject to change at any time.
The user interface for StarPlayrX is simple, clean, well organized and most of all easy to use. The goal of StarPlayrX is to enhance your SiriusXM satellite radio streaming experience.
StarPlayrX runs in the foreground or background and uses very few resources to run. Artist and song info is available on the lock screen. If StarPlayrX is interrupted for a phone call, it will do its best to restart the stream after the phone call is over. SPX also mixes well with Apple Maps audio.
Removed padding from category table headers and other minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is fantastic. It is esy to use and less cluttered than SiriusXM's app. I hope that at some point Xtra Channels and podcasts are included becausethat's the one thing missing.
Deserves 5 stars, but there is an issue.
For a user of VoiceOver screen reader on the iPhone/iPad, StarplayrX is fabulous, almost. There are pauses that I suspect is buffering between it and SiriusXM during MLB games that is rather annoying. It is almost like hiccups. The same stream on SiriusXM does not hiccup. This was true wiht the Yankees/Mariners game on Wednesday afternoon. I tried reaching the developers web site and got a 521 error, host not returning a connection every day since Wednesday. otherwise, this app would get 5 stars.
iPhone, iPad, and Mac works perfect! Ease of use and your great interface is what kept me from cancelling my subscription. Keep up the great work it’s appreciated!
