just curious, is it possible to sync the ipod touch by wireless? the remote application is awesome and i assume that if they can do that they should be able to sync without having to connect to the computer...

I love this remote application, being able to control my stereo from any room in the house. I think a wireless sync is a brilliant idea, and could completely eliminate the iPod cord, since I have another power source for it :D

Has anybody actually got it to work? I've tried but have had zero success. Not sure why, but it will not sync with iTunes on my desktop.

Huh, I don't recall turning it on in iTunes. This may be a stupid question: but did you go into Settings, General,iTunes Wi-fi sync and start it from there? Mine worked fine. However my problem is most of the apps did not show up. I had turn on each one on and then they where just dumped into the phone.

Ok I think its working now. Atleast I can hit the button and it says syncing but i was under the impression that i could load new music on phone by doing this. Apparently it just backs up what you have done since last sync?

I have wirelessly synced music to my iPhone today, but in my opinion it is slower than having it connected to a computer.

I got it to work, but at first I didn't think it was. Apparently, you can wirelessly sync and still use the phone. I loaded IOS5 and my apps and content did show up. iTunes showed a sync in progress, but the iPhone did not.

Then I noticed the spinning sync wheel next to my wireless signal. All came back 99% of where I left it. The difference was the new apps moving things around.

All appears to be well except I've had trouble on 3G today. Not sure if that's an AT&T problem or not. Time will tell.

so how do you do it?
when you first sync your iPhone to your pc with the cable attached click on your device and go to the summery tab. At the bottom of this page check SYNC WITH THIS iPhone OVER WIFI and hit apply. Let the iPhone sync as it would and when it finishes you can unplug your device but notice now with your device unplugged it's still showing that it's dock. Now you can click on the device again and check music or pics etc that you want to sync and hit the SYNC button. Now the device should sync wirelessly, it should say searching for iPhone and starts after 30 secs to 1 min.

So basically I have to plug it into the computer to get it started then I can unplug? Well that's almost useless.

No after you plug it in once and check that box you won't have to plug it in again. Just click on your device and do what you would normally do as if it is plugged in.
