Wi-Fi Sync App Rejected by Apple


Not entirely surprisingly, Wi-Fi Sync has been rejected from the App Store. We profiled the app in April. Wi-Fi Sync enabled users to wirelessly sync their iPhones with their computers via a local Wi-Fi network. The developer had submitted it to Apple with hopes that they would approve it for sale through the iTunes App Store. As many suspected, Apple rejected the app. Engadget cites the explanation the developer received from Apple.

"While he agreed that the app doesn't technically break the rules, he said that it does encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and cannot allow on their store. He also cited security concerns."


The developer is now distributing it outside the App Store on jailbroken phones for $9.99.

Most people seemed to expect that Wi-Fi would be rejected by Apple due to the unconventional nature of the app, but many were hoping to finally add wireless syncing as a feature to their iPhones.
