I just registered a .io domain at nic.io and I want to make changes to the zone file to integrate it with Google Apps. I couldn't find an interface to change CNAME / MX records.

Has anybody been able to figure out how to do this?

I'm in the same point -- I have a .io domain, but I can't find a way to edit MX records, I can only have xxx@xxx.io forward to another email... – shortstuffsushi Aug 14 '13 at 2:38
@shortstuffsushi exactly. I actually wound up just transfering my domain ownership from nic.io to gandi.net which provides features to edit all records including CNAME/ MX – ringular Aug 22 '13 at 13:50

This isn't exactly an 'answer' per se, but since my domain has it's nameservers on Digital Ocean, I was able to set the MX records on there.

Since nic.io doesn't provide you the ability to set MX records, you'll likely have to either use a different registrar (as you seem to have done), or use another service's nameservers that allow you to reconfigure DNS items including MX records.
