NiceMac scraps StarPlayr
NiceMac has announced that since its StarPlayr Sirius radio app has failed to receive approval at Apple's App Store, it will be scrapping the entire StarPlayr project. Back in January, NiceMac submitted the iPhone app for approval and waited roughly a month before receiving a statement that they could not be approved at the time. Gizmodo notes that a potential factor blocking the app from being approved could be that a first-party app from Sirius may be in development, though it remains unconfirmed.
In addition to eliminating the StarPlayr app for the iPhone, the company is also doing away with its Windows Mobile version, and offering refunds to users on a first-come-first-served basis until corporate funds have been exhausted.
