Back in the fall of 2010, we were promised a beta of the new version of Wi-Fi Sync by December. Here we are in 2011, and still the awesome wireless iTunes syncing app is nowhere to be seen.

In a few recent tweets, the developer has announced that the app is still in development and should be available in two to three weeks. He also mentioned what some of these awesome features are, and from what I can tell, it will definitely be worth the wait…

For starters, Wi-Fi Sync will work on all Apple devices, including the iPhone 4, the iPad and the iPod Touch 4G. It will also work over VPN and 3G, allowing a sync from anywhere. More importantly, the desktop client will have an off switch to allow us to restore our devices without frustrating errors.

Apparently the client will run in virtual memory instead of modifying iTunes files. I’m curious if this delay is due to the upcoming CydiaSubstrate and Mac Cydia, since that sounds very similar to how Saurik described CydiaSubstrate.

What do you think?

    Sync’ing over 3G sounds quite interesting.

    • It does, but also quite slow. And probably not a good idea for those with soft caps. Good, informative article.

    I’ll stay away from it. I had a go and it crashed both iPhone and iTunes And pc.

  • The developer for this app is an absolute d**k. I brought this months ago didnt work for me, email the developer and no reply been 5 months now.

      That makes him an “absolute d**k” ?
      ROFL snob

      The app has worked awesome for me through 3 versions and 3 versions of iTunes (last version I emailed developer because it wouldn’t install with iTunes 10.1 – he had new version up in the week)

      .. I’m so sick of teen tech-snobs whining, bitching and complaining because they cant get something to work and then claim it MUST be a POS, or the author is an a**hole or something

        And I’m sick of people stereotyping and making assumptions. Instead of sounding rude and crass, why not simply stick with pointing out their errors and then moving? While iphoneglance was immature about their judgment, you do not also have to be.

    the reason why Fluke1 didn’t make the december, was because he, decided to look at PS3 jailbreaking instead.
