Greg Hughes “the developer of Wi-Fi Sync” had previously submitted Wi-Fi Sync to the App Store but has been rejected by Apple. So Greg Hughes decided to submit the App to Cydia and is now available via the BigBoss-repo for $9,99 for jailbroken iPhone users. Wi-Fi Sync makes it possible to sync your iDevice with iTunes via Wi-Fi. At this point it is only working on the Mac, but Greg Hughes said it will be compatible with Windows soon.
