AnyDrop is a recent addition to the Cydia Store that lets jailbreakers send any file stored on their iOS device – including music – with others using Apple’s AirDrop. Though there are a few prerequisites, the jailbreak tweak is certainly interesting. You can download it now for $1.99 on the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
The new package promises users “zero configuration,” and adds an iOS app icon to the Home screen which allows jailbreakers to access their iOS filesystem and send files to others. In the AnyDrop app there are shortcuts for the Photos app library, the Music library, and the Videos library, though users can share any file they’re able to locate in the iOS filesystem.
Sharing occurs via AirDrop, and as such you’ll need to be running an iOS 7-powered iOS device compatible with the sharing service in order to use AnyDrop. The other potential stumbling block is that AnyDrop can only send files to iOS devices which have the jailbreak tweak installed.
Given the price – as well as the fact that AnyDrop is available for jailbreakers only – this means users could have a hard time finding friends who they’re able to share files with using the package.
This problem aside, AnyDrop supports transfer rates of up to 20 MB per second, it allows users to import images and video into the Photos and Videos apps, and it supports “Open In,” too.
As mentioned, you can pick up AnyDrop for $1.99 on the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The jailbreak tweak requires iOS 7, and both the sender and the recipient will need to have AnyDrop installed on their handset or tablet in order for the process to work.
