cnet.com just posted an article regard the proposed iPhone/ iPad app “Wi-Fi Sync“.  This app would enable your iPad, iPhone or iPod to sync wirelessly.  The app, created by a student, was rejected by Apple.  In an explanation given by Apple to the app’s creator, Greg Hughes, Apple “cited security concerns” as being one of the reasons for the app’s rejection.  Apple did say that the Wi-Fi Sync app does “not technically break the rules”.  cnet.com reporter, Rick Broida received the following explanation from creator, Hughes:

Wi-Fi Sync was rejected by Apple, and will therefore not appear on the official App Store. I’m obviously disappointed by their decision, but being a student I have neither the time nor the resources to pursue the matter further. It’s clear that Apple have [sic] the final say on which apps are deemed acceptable for their customers.A representative of Apple has explained their decision to me over the phone, which I am grateful for. While he agreed that the app doesn’t technically break the rules, he said it does encroach upon the boundaries of what they can and cannot allow on their store. He also cited security concerns.

cnet.com is reporting that the app is unofficially available at The Cydia Store, a store offering apps for jailbreak devices.
