Video: iPhone Gets Bluetooth File Transfers via iBluetooth


The Apple iPhone is one of the hottest handsets on the market today and while it brings a lot of great things to the table, it’s also lacking in several areas as well. We’re still looking for official ways to record videos and cut-and-paste. In the meantime, we turn to the developer community for support.

Something that is strangely missing from the iPhone is the ability to transfer files over a Bluetooth connection. That shortcoming has been overcome with the arrival of iBluetooth, a third-party app that lets beam that song or picture to your fellow Bluetooth-equipped smartphone user.

iBluetooth is in no way endorsed or affiliated with Apple itself and you can’t even get this useful application through the regular Apple App Store. Instead, you’ll first need to have a jailbroken iPhone and then you can find iBluetooth through the iSpazio repository on Cydia. It’s a bit of a workaround, but at least it works.

Embedded below is a brief video of iBluetooth in action. I really do find it strange that despite its relatively cutting-edge inclinations, the iPhone is lacking in some basics like stereo Bluetooth, video recording, and Bluetooth object exchange.
