One of the biggest pains is always being forced to plug your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a computer in order to transfer content over. It’s 2010 – we don’t have those robot hookers, but we should at least have wireless media syncing.
Well, the WiFi Sync app is trying to fix one of those problems but I’ll doubt it will get approved because of how it interacts with iTunes. As you can see from the video above, it’s a small program that makes your device think it’s connected to an iTunes machines – Mac or PC – and will transfer content over. There’s no real word on how fast this occurs (I’m guessing it will depend on your WiFi setup) but this is a killer app and it has been on the competing Zune for a long, long time. Additionally, competitors like Android and webOS are moving to a total in-the-cloud solution that will eventually tackle wireless media content.
The app has been submitted to the App Store but, despite the obvious usefulness of something like this, I sincerely doubt Apple will approve this. I’m sure wireless syncing and a streaming iTunes are in the cards in the near future and it wouldn’t want an outsider stepping on its toes. We should be getting a version of this through other channels soon and we’ll let you know how it works out.
