Of all of the obvious features that users clearly want on their iPhones/iPads/iPods, but that Apple has so far refused to provide, wireless synchronizing is easily the most popular. Nova Media has announced a software solution that, for Mac users, takes a few small steps towards solving this problem.
Nova Media’s iHub is an OS X application that sits on your Mac and monitors your local network for wireless iDevices and other Macs (no client app is required). When one is located, it synchronizes your calendar and contacts between the two devices. According to Nova Media, the software can be configured to synchronize certain calendars only with certain users (devices), so that your work calendar doesn’t end up on your kids’ iPod Touch, for example.
The downside is that iHub supports calendar and contacts syncing only. Music, video, apps, books — basically any media that resides strictly in iTunes — is not synced. So iHub isn’t a complete solution to the syncing issue, but if you grow tired of having to manually sync your devices just to keep your calendars and contacts straight, you may want to give iHub a try when it is released.
