    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:

    Anthony I think you should revise the opening sentence. "Has Thursday been released" doesn't make sense, I see what you were implying though. Good job anyway, great read.

    Originally had celeste for iOS 4, took so long to update I went for airblue sharing and was gonna stick with them, even if they did make celeste iOS 6 compatible. I'm afraid the integration with the native Bluetooth is a winner tho, bit annoying to have to keep switching on airblue with an activation method. Just hope when the iOS 7 jailbreak eventually drops it doesn't take as long to make it compatible, if its not already. So far, works a charm !

    He does that all the time. I've commented on it already, but I suppose he doesn't understand. The sentence should have said, "On Thursday, the highly anticipated Celeste 2..."

    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.

    I've been waiting for this to update. I never bought the orignal because it's too expensive but I'm really hoping that with Giveaway I can win and finally own it. I would really like to own this to be able to share files with anyone regardless of what type of phone they have. I just really hope I win.

    I don't know why Apple didn't implement Bluetooth fully, glad somebody did(again)

    It doesn't seem to work with my daughters iPhone 4 or my iPad mini
    But they are not jailbroken
    Just wandered if they should work with unjailbroken devices?

    From my understanding the very reason for this app/tweak is because the feature isn't available for nonjailbroken devices.
