Funambol - An open source syncing client for the iPhone.

Have you ever wondered weather there are open source applications for the iPhone? Yes there are open source applications for the iPhone and one of such applications is Funambol. Funambol is an open source synchronization client that makes it easy for iPhone users to migrate their contacts from older phones to the iPhone 3G over-the air.

It also enables users of the iPhone 3G (as well as original iPhones and iPod Touches that have been upgraded to 2.0) to wirelessly back up their contacts for free, and to easily keep their contacts in sync with popular webmail systems, and email clients such as Outlook and Thunderbird.

"One of the first things that iPhone 3G users want is contacts on their phone and they don't want to type them in," says Fabrizio Capobianco, Funambol CEO. "The Funambol plug-in makes it really easy to migrate contacts from an older phone, webmail system or email client. Plus it freely backs up contacts to a server without a cable. It is easy to see why the Funambol plug-in was just named as one of the top 20 third party iPhone apps."

All you need to use Funambol on your iPhone is to register for a free account on the myFunambol portal. You can find Funambol readily available on iTunes and can also be downloaded  for free from the Apple App Store, from its Productivity section.
