Prior to IOS 5, I managed all music and apps for our iPads and iPod with my email account and an iMac. No problem. After upgrading to IOS 5 I have been having problems syncing. My iTunes music disappeared from my iPad2 and I can't get it back. And a couple of apps bought on the iPad2 won't sync with my iMac. I suspect this has something to do with the me.com account which I use for messaging. I am trying to figure out what I need to sync this stuff up. We are not using iCloud at this time because I am unsure of the ramifications of trying to keep our 2 iPads sync' with each other.
So, my question is: what is the best source of information to sort all this out?
If I go to iCloud then if I buy music or an app, will I have to buy it for each iPad and buy it again on the iMac so I can have it on the iPod?
How do I get my music back on my iPad2 which I would need to do to back it to iCloud.
Is there a better place to post this question?
Thx for any help
