Too bad it no longer works. IBluenova will not been updated to work with current iPhone versions so you would either be stuck with an outdated phone or no Pogo printing with the iPhone. Sad when technology takes 3 steps back. :(

I use this quiet a lot and it is very good. Except for one bug. I turned on the 'Save in Library' option for sending pictures and sent one to my iPod. When i loaded up with Photos it said that there was a new picture (ie. was 90 now 91) but when i go into the folder the picture is not there. This means that my screenshots no longer save, and i cant save pictures from safari. Does any one know how to fix this?

I got iBlueNova as a demo and it worked 100% the first time. I transferred a 3MB photo from the iphone to a Nokia phone and then back. No glitches or trouble. Now, I'll buy it. Guess there's no substitue for read ing the instructions :)

Further to my February 2010 post, the author of this program has not updated v2.0.1 to be compatible with iOS4. My IBlueNova worked just fine with iOS3.1.2 but since upgrading to 4, it's useless. I have written to the author several times without response. I guess it's just another rip-off! Once they get your money, they don't care.

i've tried it with some cell phones it is working great i've transferred a 4.4 mb image with success, but i couldn't transfer any to a Mac although from this Mac i received a file.

Has anyone gotten the "re-enable when closed" to work? I can only complete transfers when the iBlueNova app is actually open!?

asaadsaleh - February 17, 2010 at 7:50am
no app was made to work in the bg, if you want it to run when closed, install backgrounder from cydia and use it. regards.

[ups, misclicked, please delete my identical reply in "forest wrote at 2010-02-15 19:42:11"] I also had a connection error until I detected that SB Settings has killed Bluetooth: I had turned BT on with SB Settings, but in the main preference pane it was still off, even "unavailable". After deleting SB Settings, the transfer iPhone -> Mac was a breeze. Haven't figured out though, how to get files from Mac to iPhone. Robert

I got the opposite from you, I can bluetooth my photos from my mac smoothly, but it always failed when I am sending back photos to my mac. I kicked sbsettings out, even restore and jailbreaked, it just not working.

stoni - March 1, 2010 at 10:53pm
what exactly do you mean by "deleting SB preferences"??

Hi friends, I'm using iBlueNova ... the file transfer from Nokia N81 to my iPhone 3gs v3.1.2 works great .. but N81 does not open .mov files transferred from iphone. I've transferred files from my Win7 Notebook PC to my iphone without any probs. iBlueNiova is a great app.
Mats
Mats - February 17, 2010 at 4:24am
I tried to send to a computer not another phone.
shashi
shashi - February 17, 2010 at 6:47am
Yes.... you are correct .... it fails in transfering files from iphone to PC... let us wait for the bug fix from medevil....
Phyr
Phyr - February 19, 2010 at 12:06pm
