  • [GIVEAWAY] Celeste 2 Officially Released to the Public


    The highly anticipated Celeste 2 Bluetooth file sharing software from CocoaNuts has been released Thursday for the public to download from Cydia. We showed you Celeste 2 and most of its features earlier in August.

    Celeste 2 works differently under the hood than the original Celeste Bluetooth Sharing. Celeste 2 takes advantage of Apple’s own Bluetooth Stack, which is a great feat. Because it relies on something of Apple's rather than something of the jailbreak community, the software may also already be compatible with iOS 7 out of the box, but more testing will have to be conducted when a jailbreak is released for iOS 7 to verify this.

    Celeste 2 offers a number of features, like Notification Center support, iOS 6 share menu support, Action Menu support, and more. Celeste 2 also works from a variety of applications, like Photos, Music, iBooks, Safari, and more. The integration with Safari, which wasn't covered in our initial review because it was just added to the application recently while in beta, allows the user to send a Web link over Bluetooth so they can read the Web page on another device.

    Celeste 2 will be a free upgrade for existing owners of Celeste Bluetooth Sharing, and will be on sale for $6.99 until September 15th for new customers before returning to $9.99 when the sale ends.

    The developers have also been kind enough to offer ten lucky ModMyi readers the chance to win a free copy of Celeste 2. To gain entries into the giveaway, complete as much of the widget below as you can:

      They both accomplish the same task, but Celeste 2 is the only Bluetooth sharing jailbreak tweak that uses Apple's Bluetooth Stack.

      The only advantage I see so far with this is that you don't have to manually enable another stack. The rest is pure marketing blah blah. AirBlue Sharing got iOS6 compatible within 2 weeks after the Jailbreak got released. This one may well be already iOS7 compatible, but some dependencies (Action Menu above all) may not, and may take weeks to get updated given that Ryan petrich usually starts updating his paid tweaks first. Thus one of this approach's advantages still has to prove worth the hype.
      As for functionality...uhmmm...still have to send or receive stuff one by one (while AirBlue lets you deal with more file sin a batch), no WiFi transfer support (which will be rendered obsolete by iOS7's AirDrop, but for now that's it), and so on and so on. Still can't get the hype from some posts here, they look more a commercial than a real user experience. I really don't care which tweak wins, everyone has its own preferences, but just give credit to the fact that the possibility to transfer files with Bluetooth in iOS6 has been there for months instead of trying to make ppl think something revolutionary has been released yesterday.

      I totally agreed. I heard a lots of bad reputations from this dev CocoaNuts as well. He/she/they tend to ignore almost every complain/feedback about problems of their apps from ppl... I think I better stick with AirBlue Sharing then!

      Maybe it's just me, but if the first sentence of an article has bad grammar associated with it, I normally will just skip the article entirely. Regardless of how interesting or informative it may be. The first line needs to be something that will catch the readers attention, not make them cringe.
      Who cares? Stop reading then. The world will not end because of a few grammatical errors. MMI do a great job, so stop bashing.

      Celeste 2 would be great to have, as it'd make sharing files between my Mac and iPhone a lot easier, since there'd be no risky SSH involved.

      Compatibility with iOS 7 would be a must since it is so imminent. Then again it is a free upgrade. All in all great news.

      It took a hard reboot to make it work for me. The Cydia required respring was not enough. Works great now.

      I just downloaded Celeste 2 to my iPhone 4S - works “almost” as advertised”. It transfers photo’s & files between my iMac & MacBookPro & iPhone perfectly after I confirmed popup window pairing codes, and it uses Apples internal bluetooth App. Here’s my problem - Celeste 2 searches & “sees” the pogo printer but continually fails to connect because no “pairing window” comes up that would initially allow me to put the “6000” pairing code in the first time. An error window instead pops up instead stating it can’t print - not paired - etc.... A technical intelligent answer or remedy would be appreciated, thank you !
