Wi-Fi Sync 2.0 Beta Released

Wi-Fi Sync is an application available in Cydia that allows devices to wirelessly sync with iTunes. A few months ago, the 2.0 release went into private beta, and has now opened to the public for testing.

The current build is still a bit buggy, and only a Mac client is available at the moment (Windows version to be released soon). The update will feature syncing over WiFi, 3G, and Bluetooth, as well as native support for the iPod Touch 4G and iPhone 4.

How to Install

  1. Uninstall the previous Mac client (1.1a) first, if you have it installed. Download the uninstaller here.
  2. Add the following source to Cydia, and install the Wi-Fi Sync 2.0 package: http://dl.wifisyncapp.com/apt
  3. Download the new Mac client from this link. It doesn’t come with an installer, so I recommend that you move it to the /Applications folder.
  4. Keep checking Cydia for updates as the beta test progresses. You may also see update notifications on your Mac from time to time; I strongly recommend that you install these as quickly as possible.

The current 1.1 version ($9.99) is required to access the beta, and users who purchase it will be able to upgrade to 2.0 for free. Keep in mind that since the app is still in development, some of the promised features (such as syncing over 3G) have not yet been implemented.
