    Im quite interested in purchasing the Penpal PP-1 as its currently on sale, but I know that its officially incompatible with the iPad and iPhone due to a restriction on the OBEX. However, theres a jailbreak app called "AirBlue Sharing" which removes the restriction and allows file transfers with other non-iDevices via Bluetooth. I am wondering if anyone has gotten their Penpal to work with either the ipad or iphone and what are their thoughts on it. I was thinking of getting an Eyefi, but its not being sold here in BKK. And ordering it online is quite costly. Thanks in advance.

    It's an Olympus thing.

    Are you sure this jailbreak app works on the iPad, or is only for the iPhone?

    Switch to an Android device! My Penpal works great with them! :rofl:

    (Sorry I couldn't offer any help, but I never tried transferring photos directly to my iDevices... :frown:)

    Its a bluetooth accessory by Olympus that is used to transfer photos from the camera to another device. The image that the device receives is in a reduced resolution that is good for uploading to the web.

    I believe it works on both devices, but I have not purchased the app. Im still hesitant on purchasing the penpal.

    Its moments like these that I do feel like switching to an Android, but overall I'm quite happy with it.

    No. Requires the E-PL2 or newer.
