Bluetooth File Transfer for iPhone – iBluetooth is Finally Here

iBluetoothEarlier, 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.

Download iBluetooth from CydiaGet a 7 day 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.

[Thanks our reader Alex Chai for sharing the news!]

Update: You can also check out Bluetooth Photo Share, available from AppStore, that lets you share photos via bluetooth.

    Had a question regarding bluetooth transfer Simon. Can it also transfer video recorded by Cycorder?
    Thanks much.
    Abhishek.

      @Abhishek,

      Yes. iBluetooth offers a file browser that can navigate through the whole iPhone file system. You can find cycorder video under /User/Media/Videos.

    thanks simon for putting up the news so quickly! i’ll be waiting for your review. am still deciding whether i should install iBluetooth (which i heard is full of bugs), or to wait for the supposedly more stable SweetTooth by the original iBluetoothProject team.

    i don’t know how ethical this is, but if you go to xsellize.com and create an account, and then add :http://xsellize.com/username-password (and insert your username and password) you can get this full app (among many others), for free.

    this doesn’t support the creators of such wonderful apps however

    i meant to add, you need to add that link to cydia sources :)

  5. Raj March 13, 2009 at 2:41 pm #

    thats bad…. it should be offered for free…. i cant see any differenr b/w apple guys & MeDevil folks…

    As stated by Domenico at http://www.medevil.net:
    “Please, understand that the “free way” is not the right way. If you want this application “for free” then take the “a cracked version”, but you’re essentially removing yourself the possibility to have more features”

    so my question is from where i can fine cracked version.. & is it safe to use it???

    • Simon Ng March 15, 2009 at 12:30 pm #

      @mayur, you can use iBluetooth on iPhone 2G as mentioned in the iBluetooth website. You can download the application from Cydia and obtain a free trial license to test out.

  8. Karan March 17, 2009 at 3:23 am #

    HI I installed the software but evertime i tried to start the software it said iBluetooth app failed to open
    Please help me guys what to do in this case?

  9. soorms March 17, 2009 at 3:37 am #

    The cracked version works fine for syncing with computer I believe. However, me and my friend tried to do an iphone to iphone sync and it didnt work out too well. For some reason when you set your device to be ‘seen’ thru the application, it conflicts with your bluetooth settings under you actual iphone settings. So the basic workaround is to first make sure you turn on blue tooth thru ur settings, and then turn on discover device thru the actual app itself to avoid conflicts. Additionally, the cracked app works well, but I decided to uninstall and buy the app to support further development :)

      @Sam, what version of iPhone OS are you using? The latest version of iBluetooth only supports OS 3.1. BTW, I suggest you to check out Bluetooth Photo Share, which also lets you share photo via bluetooth.

  25. sam November 28, 2009 at 1:36 am #
