CES 2010: iPhone App Sharing via WiFi Or Bluetooth

In the past couple of days we’ve talked a bit about CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) which is the biggest electronics show in America and it will take place in Las Vegas later this week. Before the show is open its door to everybody, and the stories will invade us, lets take a look at a few products you will find at CES this year. CES10 Episode 9: iPhone App Sharing via WiFi Or Bluetooth.

I’ve always said that with all this apps available in the appstore, iPhone users must be able to “test drive” and app before buying it. Some of you know , that i’ve said that way before Lite versions of various apps were even available in the appstore. Well how about sharing your apps with any other iPhone or iTouch via WiFi or Bluetooth? Seems that somebody had a good idea at CES 2010… Here’s a good idea for virally marketing apps that Apple should think about — wirelessly beaming apps to other iPhones like the Zune’s music sharing feature.

Microsoft’s Zune is mostly a me-too product, but it’s one great feature is being able to lend music to friends Zune-to-Zune via Wi-Fi. Shared tracks can be played three times, after which they must be purchased from the Zune marketplace. It’s a great idea but tragically underused because there are so few Zunes out there.

Not so with iPhones. And one of the thorniest problems for iPhone users is discovering new apps. But what if you could share apps with friends iPhone-to-iPhone? With navigation of Apple’s overstuffed App Store such a chore, being able to quickly and easily share apps with friends would surely be a hit.
The idea was suggested by a member of the audience at a CES panel discussion about iPhone apps on Wednesday afternoon. None of the panelists had heard the idea before, but instantly warmed to it.
