Notes, Reminders, and banner notifications now live on iCloud.com

iOS-style Notes, Reminders, and banner notifications are now live... IN SPACE! Well, sort of. The web app versions are now out of beta and available to one and all via iCloud.com. Even though Notes, Reminders, and Notification Center are all available already on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Mac, it's nice to have iCloud.com as a backup option.

If, for some reason, you run out of power on your mobile device, or you're using someone else's computer, you can quickly log in, look up something in your notes, check your reminders, and if something important comes up, get alerted to it right in the browser.

The Notes, Reminders, and notification banner design and interfaces looks exactly like the iPad, You can create, read, write, and delete Notes and Reminders, and individually enable or disable notifications for Mail, Calendars, Reminders, and Find my iPhone.

All that said, I don't think I've used iCloud.com in a year or more. How about you?

I want iMessage to work on iCloud.com too. That would be the ultimate.

I've actually never used iCloud.com

TurboTiger says:

The only way to set an "all day" Due Date reminder is on iCloud.com
Then you can go to your iPhone and iPads and the "all day" selection will be there for you to change.

It is my understanding in iOS 6 (at least the betas) that the "all day" selection is still not showing on the devices without going to ICloud.com 1st. I hope I'm wrong about that.

Good Luck

I'd like iMessage on iCloud too. I use the calendar app regularly when I want to create repeating 8 day entries.

I don't use iCloud...I can do all I need on my phone..the less things to work on the better...for me

Great to know. I still have my MacPro on Snow Leopard. Only my old Macbook on Mountain Lion can use iCloud natively. I haven't been impressed with iCloud on Mountain Lion. Apps crash while trying to access documents on iCloud, but usually open upon restarting. Access on a browse will allow me to work on Snow Leopard. I just tried in Firefox and it worked surprisingly smoothly. Actually better performance than on my Macbook. I was one of the old .mac customers and I have been skeptical of Apples cloud services ever since.

It's much faster than it's ever been.

They have also added VIP mailbox to icloud.com

I think iCloud.com is the only way to share Reminders lists. In my house, we have several shopping lists that are shared so that anyone can drop by the grocery store and have the most current list.
