Wi-Fi Sync app rejected by Apple, headed to Cydia

Can't say I'm surprised to hear that Apple rejected this Wi-Fi Sync app. The app that allows you to wireless sync your iPhone / iPod touch with iTunes without having to USB tether to your computer. Altering Apple's synchronization technology is a pretty big offence as demonstrated by Palm's webOS bluff. Here's the rejection as explained to Greg Hughes the creator, spoken by an unnamed Apple rep over the phone:
"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."
So while you won't find it in Apple's App Store, it will make its way to Cydia as expected for a cool $9.99. You have jailbroken your device haven't you?
