    The wireless sync functionality in iOS 5 is eerily similar to an app Apple rejected a year ago. Even the icons look eerily similar.

    Suing a kid, fighting over the term "App Store", and now this. Apple keeps sinking to new lows I couldn't imagine.

    maybe the reason they rejected it was because they were so similar. alot of this stuff takes years to come out. depends the priority the company assigns it

    I don't put anything past any big corporation these days. They are almost all shady.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    +1... and the logo? Yeah, that was a stretch. Here are the images Apple used for Sync and WiFi for years....

    You don't understand why Apple would reject an app that provides a backdoor method of syncing to iTunes? That's like saying Apple should have let Palm keep identifying the Pre as an iPod.

    +1 we don't know how long Apple had been working on their wifi sync.

    It's Apple that cut people off from a useful product experience. This dev went to Cydia and turned in a pretty penny, so obviously it's an experience people have been wanting for a long time. Just because he, by himself, could work much faster than Apple on that feature doesn't mean they have to cut him off.

    I think everyone here understands why. The point was Apple's implementation of Wifi sync is too similar to this dev's implementation to be a coincidence.

    Here I have to disagree. Wifi sync is modern and sorely needed. It was more likely because the other app allowed more free usage for a device you supposedly own, that Apple didn't like. Apple wants complete control over what people do with their devices. Now that they gave the green light on their end, wireless sync is now "ok". You see why people jailbreak, don't you?
