The folks behind the Wi-Fi Sync app which lets you sync your iPhone with iTunes over a WiFi Connection (no USB cables needed), have three bits of news today:

  1. The app is half price until June 11, which means you can pick it up for $4.99.
  2. The ability to  sync over a 3G connection is coming soon.
  3. VPN (virtual private network) support is also on its way.

While the version available for download today doesn’t support 3G or VPN synchronization, users will be able to upgrade for free.

There is still one major catch: Wi-Fi Sync doesn’t work unless you have a jailbroken iPhone. Technologically speaking, there’s no real reason that you should need root access to run the app, but Apple rejected Wi-Fi Sync from the app store, which means the only way to install the utility is by purchasing and downloading it from the Cydia Store for unofficial apps that only work with jailbroken devices.

Wi-Fi Sync is available for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and works with Windows and Mac computers.

One reply on “Wi-Fi Sync for iPhone now half price, 3G and VPN sync coming soon”

  1. The price is great news actually. Thanks for sharing this one. However, I think a year have passed and I am sure there will be better services that are available. Thanks for the info though.
