Thanks to MeDevil of iSpazio we now have bluetooth file sharing on the iPhone.The application is called iBlueNova and is available to users who have jailbroken their iPhones via Cydia.
When we purchased a device from Apple we did not quite know that the hardware was capable of much more than what the brochure said. As time passed since the launch of the first iPhone we have come far and seen firmware updates enhancing our iPhone and iPod experience each time. Talking of which, the developer community outside Apple deserves great credit too who have helped us make better use of our devices.
Installation The iSpazio repo is there in Cydia by default so the application should appear in your updates already. Yesterday MeDevil released version 2.0.1 which is free from most bugs and yes it works on iPhone 2G too, now.
Interface The interface is very simple and intuitive. So you won’t quite need a tutorial to use this app. However if you face any difficulty sharing files for the first time do buzz us back. We might be able to help you out. I personally test drove this app and must say I’m totally loving this.
What can you Share? The best part about this app is that it lets you share practically everything on your iPhone. From pictures in the photo library to even songs that you synced using iTunes. The list goes on to videos and podcasts. You can even receive files. However, the songs and videos that you receive will not feature in iPod yet so you will have to use them with iFile.
Transfer Speeds I was totally blown with the transfer speeds. While a file transfer to a motorola phone gave me 18kbps transfer speeds, another transfer to my macbook gave me average speeds of 90kbps. You can see that in the above screenshot.
Price The software is free to try for 15 days beyond which you’ll have to pay $5.99 for a per device license.
So go ahead and try it out for yourself. We’d love to help you out to out best capabilities in case you are unable to transfer. Install the app on your device and share your experiences with us.
