XM Skydock Apps no more available

I have bought the item few years ago. When I reinstalled my iPhone recently, the apps for the this device is no longer available in Apple's Apps store. No where to find. Therefore, it's now useless. That application is very important for the device to function as it was designed.

Good iPhone/iPod Accessory

First one I purchased ended up being faulty and would not work with the iPhone as far as XM service goes. After a phone call to XM Canada and a quick easy exchange at Best Buy the replacement docked worked straight out of the box. Not only does the SkyDock provide XM Radio service via the free app and a paid XM subscription, it functions as a charger and can play audio stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Phone calls can still be received but I would recommend a bluetooth headset to take the phonecall as removing/redocking the iPhone while driving can be cumbersome. The dock itself is an extremely tight fit into the vehicle's DC outlet and I almost ruined the dashboard console faceplate pulling the dock back out. My socket is now a bit loose causing the SkyDock to rotate a little bit when turning corners and such so I need to look at getting it fixed. There also have been reports on various websites of the dock stem or dock connector jack breaking. Personally I would recommend getting an extended warranty in the event of damage or failure of the device. The FM transmitter provides very good audio quality and the dock supports the use of a casette adapter or FM line-out cable as well. I have found some quirks with audio spikes when switching from satellite to iPod where at times the volume is so loud I think it will blow my Bose system speakers. I need to investigate this issue further. Otherwise it's a pretty good idea as far as design goes albeit a bit on the expensive side once you add the dock, iPhone/iPod, and monthly subscription (although the SkyDock can function as just a dock without the XM service) into the mix. The free XM SkyDock app available on iTunes is well designed however I would not recommend trying to adjust settings while actually driving. It offers all of the features one would normally get from a regular satellite receiver. The app version available on the Canadian iTunes store is behind the version available on the US store which offers a record/rewind feature. Also, much to my dismay the Canadian app will not allow the SkyDock to be activated on a US account. As far as I'm concerned XM Canada need to look at providing more stations and sports ticker options that a customer could get on the US network. Overall, I can recommend this if you are looking for an all-in-one solution for your vehicle. It makes the iPhone/iPod that much more useful when you're in a vehicle for a long while.
