Earlier, I reported the iBluetooth software that targets to power iPhone to transfer files between other devices via Bluetooth. Today, MeDevil officially announced the release of iBluetooth and it’s publicly available for download in Cydia (via iSpazio source).
This is really a great news for iPhone users. We have heard complaints from both iPhone or non-iPhone users that the bluetooth support on iPhone just sucks! Apple’s iPhone only comes with very minimal support for bluetooth headset. Other than that, it’s nothing. You can’t even transfer file between other bluetooth devices, while this feature is common on most mobile phones.
Now, with iBluetooth, iPhone is allowed to send and receive files between other bluetooth devices (e.g. mobile phone, bluetooth-enabled computer). iBluetooth comes with a file browser for you to navigate the iPhone file system. It also lets you easily select photo from camera roll and sends them to other device.
However, there is a catch. iBluetooth is not a free software and costs 3.99 euro for a license. To let you test out the app, iBluetooth offers a 7-days free trial. Simply tap “Get License” button to get a trial license.
Please note that iBluetooth only support jailbreak iPhone with firmware 2.1 or up. It’s not compatible with iPod Touch 1G & 2G.
I’ve installed the iBluetooth on my iPhone. The first impression is pretty good. It can detect my Sony PC and transfer file between each other. I’ll write a more detailed review very soon. Stay tuned.
