SIRIUS XM has launched an updated version of their app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The biggest change is that, in the new version, you can play music in the background while using other apps – if you’re running IOS 4 on your mobile device that supports multitasking.
What does XM mean? It stands for Cross Memory. See http://www.abbreviationfinder.org/acronyms/xm.html
SIRIUS XM app for Google Android, of course, has always provided the background sound.
The latest version of IOS also allows you to reorganize your favorite channels and provides more configuration options. The company also called Promises, says that the new version will reduce buffering when you use a wireless data connection.
SIRIUS XM app for IOS is available as a free download from the App Store. But you’ll have to pay for Sirius and XM subscription in order to continue streaming content after your free trial period expires.
