In preparation for buying an iPhone 4S this week, I explored iCloud. I had my doubts but was more than pleasantly surprised! The most important features on my phone are contacts, calendar, and to do list and while some solutions I have explored have appeared adequate, none has been completely easy to use or fault free. Until yesterday. I upgraded my MacBook to OS X Lion and my iPad to iOS 5. These two processes went without a hitch (a treat in itself) and, after signing up for iCloud, I entered a few test calendar dates. First, I entered one on the MacBook Air and it magically appeared on the iPad. Then, I entered another one on the iPad and that one appeared on the MacBook. I edited each of the events, and the revised versions appeared on the other device. I haven’t experienced such ease of use across multiple devices since I was using my old Palm Treo! Such ease, however, can come with a price. iCloud is free up to 5 GB and then there is a cost. All I can say though is: Wow!
iCloud Is Not Half Bad!
