So, wireless sync for the iPhone, to iTunes, doesn’t exist. Rumors, which were apparently spurred by Steve Jobs himself, suggest that it may be coming some time in the future; but for right now, the wireless syncing option we all dream of just doesn’t exist. Unless you’ve got a BlackBerry. Thanks to ParkVu, you can now wirelessly sync your BlackBerry to your iTunes, and transfer over a playlist of your choice.
The best part, amidst a whole swath of cool features, is the fact that you can do the wireless sync either through a WiFi network, or through your mobile phone’s 3G connection. Using the downloaded BlackBerry application Music WithMe, you’ll be able to transition your music playlists from your library, to your mobile phone. Changes to your playlists are also automatic: change something in iTunes, and your media library on the BlackBerry will alter in unison.
Also, you don’t need to have the application actually open to sync your music. The application will run in the background if you choose it to. And with its full integration with BlackBerry’s media player, the transition is smooth as silk, and you’re able to play your music right away after the sync is complete. If this sounds like something for you, then head on over to the BlackBerry App World, download it, and try it out for the first 30 days. If you like it, it’ll cost you only $14.99, and then you’ll be good to go with that wireless sync.

Music WithMe Wirelessly Syncs iTunes Playlists to BlackBerry Smartphones
Louisville, KY – June 24, 2010 – ParkVu, innovators in making media truly mobile, today announced Music WithMe for BlackBerry* smartphones. Music WithMe wirelessly syncs users’ iTunes playlists with their smartphone, eliminating the need for a USB connection or secondary portable music playing device.

From within the app, users select which iTunes playlists they want stored on their BlackBerry smartphone. Music WithMe then works with iTunes on the PC to ensure that any changes made to the playlists are automatically reflected on their BlackBerry smartphone.
Music WithMe does not have to be open on the device to sync with iTunes. When the desired playlists are selected, the settings are stored directly on the BlackBerry smartphone. Using BlackBerry smartphone’s native media player, users can listen to their favorite songs from iTunes directly on their device.
Music WithMe is available at BlackBerry App World for a one-time fee of $14.99 after a free 30-day trial.
