question to Bob Maxey; I just got on the cloud but would rather not be on it. If you are not on it how do you work out the calendar syncing issues? thanks
So does anyone know how I can get the cloud on my Mac or is this just for mobile devices?
Your Mac has to be using Lion to use the iCloud and iOS devices have to be on iOS5. My Windows 7 connects to iCloud.
Hmm I haven't yet tried the cloud service.i have only one device from apple and that's this I pad .so don't feel much use as of now.
Dropbox is more useful for me at this point
from my white I pad 3G/wifi 16 gb
In my limited experience with Cloud, using it mainly for photos, I much prefer Photosync. It is faster and allows me to be the director of what goes and where, with each transfer. And it works with my XP equipped PC. With Cloud, you need Vista or 7.
It is somewhat like DropBox, except it does not work with non Apple OS systems and devices. iCloud replaces Mobile Me.
Apple - iCloud - Your content. On all your devices.), I'm not sure what the value is in pointing out that the response (made 3 days before iCloud was actually released) is inaccurate and incomplete is?
I'm only too happy to admit where I make a mistake and apologise for it, but dredging up a post made in good faith to point out it is incomplete and "somewhat accurate" only holds water if you are going to really demonstrate that and not make the same mistakes yourself.
You have the benefit of hindsight, so your description should be accurate and complete, no?
I could point out that iCloud is only free until you reach a 5GB limit, after which you must pay for additional storage making your post only "somewhat accurate" too. To paraphrase Apple, "free gets you a lot", but not everything
It will not be free in it's "iTunes Match" incarnation either. I did say it was a "Apple's flavour" of Dropbox. Not sure how is that radically different from "somewhat like" Dropbox?
I could also point out that iCloud works fine on Windows 7 and Vista OS systems. They are not Apple systems the last time I checked, are they? Not yet anyway
Are we done yet?
Let's agree that neither was a perfect description of iCloud, but that the important thing is trying to help our fellow members to get answers to their questions when they ask them rather than dredging up one month old posts and accusing them of being incomplete and "somewhat accurate", and failing to provide a more complete or accurate response yourself, shall we?

If I have extra free storage in the cloud, why is that my iPad is telling me I'm low on space and to go to settings to manage it. Out of the 5 extra mb of space that we are given I still have 4.5 left. What do I have to do to 'manage'? Do I have to delete some apps.
And while we are on that subject why can't I permanently delete apps that I will never use?
Also, sorry I meant 5gb, not 5mb!Originally Posted by Ruthie
