It looks like users will have to be willing to jailbreak their iPhones in order to experience the benefits of the WiFi Application. This really has come at no surprise, as it approaches boundaries that Apple is unwilling to cross.
Many apps are rejected everyday but this one really deserves some special mention. The application would work in tandem with a helper app on your Mac and enable iTunes so that your iPhone or iPad could sync wirelessly over the local network.
Apple representatives told the creator, while the app does not break any actually rules in Apple’s Terms and Service agreement for creating apps, it does “encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and can not allow on their store.”
Messing with Apple’s sync technology has always been a pretty big “don’t touch area” but this is one app that really helped the iPhone/iPad as it is technology that should have shipped with the platforms in the first place.
Maybe Apple is just jealous that they hadn’t thought of it first, or that the technology as done by Apple is in development? Either way, if you want it now you are going to have to jailbreak your product.
The app is available now on Cydia for an easy price of $9.99.
