Since the launch of the iPhone, users have never had a decent tool to send and receive audio, images or video files via Bluetooth with devices using other operating systems. The big problem is that you need a tool and you cannot perform this task out of the box. Apple is very strict when talking about file sharing and likes to keep it within its own ecosystem. Even so, there are problems when trying to share via Bluetooth with two iOS devices too.
We had some attempts from Cydia, allowing Bluetooth file sharing, but they all failed. With numerous errors and the restriction to share only with other iOS devices, we wouldn’t consider them a success. I really don’t understand why people still focus on creating apps that allow Bluetooth share between iOS devices exclusivity. I really don’t understand Apple’s policy either. Do they really expect me to have only friend that own iPhones or iPads?
And probably, the people who created AirBlue Sharing had the same problems as me, because this great tool managed to brake all the barriers. It enables you to share any files (from Notes, Photos, Videos, Music, Contacts or Voice Memos) with devices running on any type of operating system, even Android. All you have to do is turn the Bluetooth on and of course, put the devices at a reasonably close distance one from another.
AirBlue Sharing offers high speed transmission of up to 1.7 MB/s and is compatible with iOS devices running all version between 4.2 and 5.0.1.
As many of the really useful apps it comes with a price: $4.99 and is available in Cydia in the BigBoss repository.
Of course, you need a “jailbreaked” device in order to use this tweak, so if you haven’t done this already you can use our step by step tutorial: How to Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 on iPhone 4/ 3GS using RedSnow 0.9.9b8 Tutorial.
We leave you with some videos presenting the capabilities of this tool:
