    Didn't Wiggy announce at the beginning of the year it was in the works. How long does it take to make an app? Looks like another empty promise from Wiggy & co.

    Didn't you hear? The lawyers told him he shouldn't have even mentioned it. Apparently it's going to be so awesome, it would cause general disorder amongst the public if word leaked out prematurely. :jj:


    Actually, when the caller inquired and Wiggy was forced to backtrack, he said something along the lines of, "If we can get even half the stuff on this app that I want, then it's going to be awesome". So apparently the scope of the project is being seriously cut back even before it's begun.

    the technology out there cannot handle what's on the app right now. Right Robin?

    It's coming. Right after the cross country bus tour, Porky's remake, Howard Stern the High School Years and all the great new shows and talent on H101. So be patient.

    Reminds me of how long it took them to get their SIRIUS/XM app together, and then when it finally happened, Howard wasn't even on it. Always on the ball with the latest technology.

    In order to have a successful app you would need interesting and compelling content.

    Exactly. Wiggy started backpedaling on this immediately after he announced it. Now he says it might take 2 years and may never happen at all:

    More Christmas Special. 12/16/15. 9:40am
    Howard said he has had this plan for like 5 years. He wants to merge audio and video and have this app. He said the app isn't there yet but Sirius is backing him with all of this. He said this thing he wants to create can be done now. Howard said the potential is there for what he has in mind. Howard said if he pulls of 10 percent of what he has in his head then the audience will be blown away. Howard said he has a prototype of what he wants to do and people have seen it. Howard said it's mind blowing.
    Howard said it may take 2 years to create this vision but they are on their way.
    Howard said it's not that they've signed up for 5 years. They've signed up for the future. Howard said that Sirius is making a big commitment to him and he's making one to them. Howard said this is if they can pull it all off.

    Howard's career has been a Jean Dixon horoscope

    Lots of vague positives with no commitments

    The app is just going to be the shit that's already on YouTube but instead u now have to pay for it.

    The holdup is they're trying to figure out a way to get all their shit deleted from YouTube

    Gunk is so clueless about technology that he should hire a developer to explain why he sounds like a lying, stupid, POS.

    The App was ready months ago. His shitty content just needs to be added.

    From the New York Times article that came out last week:

    But he said that SiriusXM was well positioned for the change, with plans for a new, more interactive version of its radio system, code-named SXM17, and the advantage of knowing that car companies make changes to their machines very slowly. “Even when you’re Apple,” Mr. Meyer said, “they will still live with the speed carmakers want to go.”

    I'm guessing that the codename SXM17 means the app is scheduled for a 2017 release.

    Maybe he found out it would cost him marbles. Marbles are the most important thing to him.

    I have a feeling next year it's codename will be SXM18.

    Here's what I see in the future… The app eventually surfaces in some buggy form in about two years and Howard isn't on it. He evades questions about why and says some things still need worked out. Then at best, select interviews start going up after they've been recorded. Plus maybe some "classic" archive material. So it'll basically be youtube, but less convenient and costs money. I'll bet a live video broadcast of the show is never seen. At best, it will be specific, planned live moments. He can't risk something unplanned happening live on video. Plus, his video dump button is going to be pretty obvious when it's used. "Someone said something about the video signal dropping out yesterday, Robin. They're still working on getting the bugs out, so that's gonna happen. Especially when someone says the name __________."
