Apple rejects Wi-Fi Sync app

To no-one's surprise, Apple has rejected an app which allows users to sync iDevices over a Wi-Fi network.

The app, which was submitted to the iTunes store by developer Greg Hughes, allows the iPhone and iPod Touch (though not the iPad, apparently) to synchronise iTunes without having to physically tether to a computer using a USB cable.

Hughes told Engadget that an unnamed Apple representative has explained the reason for the rejection: "While he agreed that the app doesn't technically break the rules, he said that it does encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and cannot allow on their store. He also cited security concerns."

Owners of jailbroken devices can get the app from Cydia for a rather hefty $9.99.
