Poll: How's iCloud working for you?

iCloud has been out of beta and live on iOS 5 for over a week now so it's time ask -- how's iCloud working for you? Now that you don't sync MobileMe style anymore but -- I'll say it! -- seamlessly store and push your content between all your devices, iOS, OS X and Windows, is you stuff where you want, when you want?

In an ideal world you iCloud mail will show up everywhere, all at once, with perfect push notifications, your calendars would just work, even when shared, and your contacts would all be related so you could tell your special someone you're running late... again. Your Documents in the Cloud would all be up to date, available at the touch of any app that can edit them, and your iTunes in the Cloud would let you re-download any song or TV show as easily as you always could apps. Your backups and restores would work flawlessly, and your Photo Stream would actually let you delete unwanted pictures. If you had to use Find my iPhone, it would send a locator immediately and you'd never have to wait a day to discover you left it in your other pants pocket. And we'd all have iTunes Match.

In the often more brutal real world, however, you mail might not be pushing, your documents might be disappearing, your songs not all showing up, your Photo Stream causing you grief, and Find my iPhone doing anything but. (Grrrr.)

So you tell us TiPb Nation, what are your experiences with iCloud so far? Is it a game changer or just MobileMe part deux? Vote up top and give me the glorious -- or gory! -- details in the comments below!

Poll: How's iCloud working for you?

97 Comments

I'm still trying to decide what I think. I'm trying to work out the mix of my wife's iPhone, my iPad, and the kids iPod touch. Just not sure yet.

duhh!! You and your wife are using the same iTunes account.
it's just like you and your wife using the same gmail account. If you add a contact on you computer, she will see it on her gmail account on her computer.
You must have different accounts, or everything you will do will be synced... all contacts, calendars, mail, etc you add, will be added to your wife's iPhone.
this is obvious hum?

Got the same issue between my iphone and my kids ipad.
Too late to put the iPad on a different account now as there are some special apps on his iPda that he needs which are to expensive to purchase again (£75) if he had a new account.

You can keep the same account for itunes, and just setup a different account for imessage, and icloud. I did that on my wifes iPhone, and it worked perfectly.

You need to setup separate iCloud accounts for each person (all free) but then if you want to all use the same Apple ID for the stores you just log out of the store in settings (1 time) login with your shared Apple ID on all devices and you're good to go.

Actually i love it but there is one big problem which really really bothers me .. The Problem was present in MobileMe times and shipped right over to iCloud.
It's when i get a new mail and read it on my iPhone, my iPad simple says "dude there is a new Mail waiting!" but .. no it's not. i just read it on my iPhone like 5hours ago .. same when i read it on my mac, my iPhone and iPad both think "new mail over here".
No problem with gmail ...

this is normal:
when you get an email, you get a push notification, and mail on the iPhone or iPad says you got a new mail.
When you read it on the mac, there's no push notification generated to the iPhone or iPad saying that there's no new mail to read.
If you open mail on the iPhone, the "unread" mail and badge will disappear.
Push notifications work for incoming mail, but not for incoming "deleted mail".
anyway, if you got one e-mail on your mac, and read it, the iPhone will display 1 unread mail badge. But if you get another e-mail, your iPhone will still say 1 unread mail badge, because it recounts the unread mails and updates the badge. So, it works as expected, it won't just make the badge disappear unless you open mail manually. Maybe they fix this soon, but i believe this is more a design think, than a bug (it has always been like this, and it works the same way with gmail, hotmail, yahoo! mail, etc).

Yes, that's totally the way it is. But i got an gmail and an iCloud Account and when i got a new gmail and i read it on my iPhone, the Mac and the iPad will mark it as read and the counter disappears. Not on the iCloud ... That's why i started wondering..

Wouldn't stop duplicating my calendar events between by three devices. Disabled the cloud for now, I'll wait till the bugs are worked out.

it works great for me..
sometimes mail does not get pushed to all devices at the same time. Sometimes i dont get push e-mail on my iphone (but i get them on the ipad and on mac). When i open mail on iphone, the mail gets downloaded. But this happened 3 or 4 times, and i believe apple got much traffic and is yet making they're servers ready for all this terabytes of push notifications happening.
Everything else worked with no problems at all. Documents on the cloud is awesome, everything syncs like it should, and the web interface is fast, clean and beautiful (no ads!!).
So, 8 out of 10. I believe soon all those minor problems will be fixed, as the traffic stabilizes on apple servers (20 million users on the first icloud day is not easy to manage, huh).

i believe they sync, but not by push... i believe they are manually synced. So the first time you open bookmarks (lets say, on your iPhone, some days after changing them on your mac), they will not be synced, but some minutes later, they will be.

iCloud works fine except in one important area: It rarely pushes my e-mails to my iPhone 4. If I ever want to check e-mail on my iPhone, I have to open Mail on my iPhone, and then it'll download the messages. I'm finding this to be extremely annoying. I even tried resetting all network settings on my iPhone last night, to see if that would resolve the problem, but it did not.

this is a server side problem... apple will fix it soon. anyway, it's fixed for me, but sometimes i still have the problem. it's like an intermitent issue.
But it has nothing to do with your iPhone. It's happening to everyones iPhones. Now it's working, and has been working lately, but i believe it's not 100% solved yet.
Give them some time to make the adjustments. I believe that with so much traffic on the first days, there are adjustments and some options to be made, and they will make it work as it should soon (it is already for me).

Go into settings on your iDevice, turn iCloud off and back on, and do the same in mail settings. Had that issue too, it wasn't storing my pw properly

i still have this issue, working with apple engineers now. they turned my account into a testing account,

Couldn't compare to MobileMe but it's OK. Only really use it to back up contacts and sync calendars with MBP. Still use dropbox for docs.

Really interesting (probably just a fluke): Now that I've left my comment about iCloud not pushing mail to my iPhone 4, all of the sudden, my e-mails are being pushed to my iPhone. Go figure.

Not working well for me at all: Duplicating contacts and events, deleting my contacts' pictures. Cannot delete pictures in Pohoto Stream. It's just a mess for now, i hope they improve it in the coming months

Apple needs to clear up iCloud's setup instructions. That's actually the biggest mess causing the most problems right now.

I dont use it. If I could pick what is in the cloud and what isnt then yeah I'd use it. All I want is to keep my music in the cloud not videoso apps. Make it so I can use cloud back up and itunes and I'll be happy.

iCloud is working great. Pretty damn happy with it replacing MobileMe.
I only wish that either (a) We could edit iWork documents on iCloud.com to avoid constantly re-downloading and re-uploading changes that are done on the Mac... or (b) We could have the Mac app sync with the iCloud docs. But it's really not that inconvenient as it is now.
Also, Pages templates are't supported on iOS. So, every time I want to send someone (for example) a contract or proposal, I have to type over the previous one that automatically saved, rather than being able to open a blank template each time. But again, it's still more convenient than lugging around my MacBook for such things.
I've never used my @me.com mail, so it's just disabled in iCloud. Seems like a pain from what others are saying here.

There's something messed up with the storage. When I turn on backup, say my iPod backup is 20mb. Then I'll have 4.93GB of space left on iCloud when backups are the only thing on there.
It happens with my device on any iCloud account even after a factory reset, so I get 50mb less than claimed. Not much but still annoying.

MobileMe always worked great for me. iCloud is just MobileMe with bells on. Again no issue. Has made me think twice about what photos I take though, lol

I use MobileMe to sync my work calendar and contacts to my home and portable devices, which has been woking well. However, I work st a very small non-profit and we're still using XP, and iCloud is not compatible. It's now a race to see if Apple updates iCloud to allow this or if my company upgrades a few computers with the capacity for Win 7 before July. If not I'll need to find another solution. Before MM I used a couple, but they were much clunkier.

Well, my e-mail being pushed to my iPhone 4 didn't last, as I just manually checked my e-mail on my iPhone, and I found a message that wasn't pushed. I now realize why some of my e-mails did get pushed to my iPhone a short while ago: I had Mail running in the background on my iPhone. As soon as I closed Mail on my iPhone and stopped it from running in the background, my mail stopped being pushed to my iPhone. One shouldn't need to have Mail running in the background for one's e-mail to be pushed to their iDevice (that wasn't required with MobileMe).
Anyone else having problems with iCloud not having mail pushed to their iDevice, or is it just me?

i am still having issues. the only time mail pushes is if the app is running in the background. think that when you kill the app, somehow it kills the api that tells it to push

iCloud is working great
but there's one little thing I'm having problem's with Pages on my mac can't find iCloud upload button anywhere.
If any one knows how pls let me know
The Only way I can get my doc's on to my iPhone is to upload it in iCloud's iWork in safari

I just go to iCloud.com and upload from there. If there's a way to do it with the Pages "Share" button (iWork.com), I wouldn't know. I've never had an iWork.com account, and am not even sure if it ties in with iCloud or even remains in existence.

iCloud totally screwed up my contacts and the upgrade to iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 didn't save the backup that it said it made. It jumbled everyone's info together. I was able to retrieve a backup dated 9/22/11 on my wife's phone but it looks like iTunes wasn't syncing properly to Outlook and the contact info was over a year old.

Feels like the long time .Mac and MobileMe users are getting the short end of the stick. I can't consolidate iTunes Apple IDs with my exiting .mac email address Apple IDs which means I have to manage 3 different accounts on my iPad and iPhone, each with a specific purpose.

Apple won't let us delete photos off Photostream so I disabled it on all my devices.
Bookmarks keep duplicating themselves. I have about 40 "Bookmarks Menu" and "Bookmarks Bar" folders and more spawn every day.
Apple won't let you sync contacts to both iCloud and Google, so I'll stick to Google for my contact syncing.
iCloud backups are nice, but it would be nice to be able to download the backups from iCloud without having to restore my phone.
I still can't figure out how Document syncing works, I guess it doesn't work with iWork on my Mac, which kind of defeats the purpose.
Overall there's way more problems with iCloud than there are solutions. I was happier with having Google's exchange server handle my syncing, so I went back to that until Apple irons out iCloud's many flaws.

"I still can't figure out how Document syncing works, I guess it doesn't work with iWork on my Mac, which kind of defeats the purpose."

When you create and edit documents on your iOS devices, they automatically save and sync to any other iOS devices you have, but not to Macs. If you want to access and edit iCloud docs on Mac, you have to go to iCloud.com, then click on the Settings icon (upper right), then click "Download Document". Then, open that document on the Mac, then, when finished editing, go back to iCloud.com, Settings, then "Upload Document".
When iWork 11 (or 12) comes out, they'll most likely make this process much easier, or hopefully, even allow them to sync.

Had an issue with my iPhone 4s touch screen so I took is to the Genius Bar yesterday. Told them the issue, they replaced the phone. I had backed up everything on iCloud the night before for the first time. We deleted my data off the old phone. He handed me the new one, and in 10 minutes everything was restored except for a few apps. I just waited until I got home and had Wifi to download those. The first few times I tried to back up to iCloud, right after iOS 5 was released, I I got nothing but a status bar that showed the back up at about 10% after 4 hours. But this weekend, when it mattered, it worked flawlessly.

Also, iCloud needs to work with SnowLeopard. I can't update all my machines to Lion and I am not about to go buy new computers for kids when the CoreDuo machines they have work just fine. We need at least basic connectivity to iCloud. I could use BootCamp and start the CoreDuo machines in Windows and use iCloud, but I can't use SnowLeopard or upgrade them to Lion - so that is a total iCloud FAIL.

The same thing happens to me when I pull the photos off of my phone to my HP computer. Strange. I can edit them when they are on my computer though. Also what is weird, If I rotate them on the computer, and then sync them back to my phone thru itunes, they are sideways on my iPhone. Still a few bugs i guess.

Seems like a known issue. Maybe its on purpose to get you to fork over more cash for a Mac now. "Photos on a PC are upside down, on a Mac they just work. Apple has invented a new way to look at photos, right side up. And it's only available on Mac."

I'm having non-stop issues with my mail. When I was with MobileMe things were limited, but at least they worked. Now my Mail app keeps getting sporadic "wrong password" warnings (which eventually fix themselves), and the browser-based access (which I need from my work computer) is an absolute nightmare.

I upgraded my iphone4 to iOS5 yesterday.... everything seems good, but just realized that ALL MY CONTACTS ARE MISSING! FML

If you're using Mac's Address Book, go to File>Export>Address Book Archive. Then, you'll at least have your current contacts save on your computer if you ever lose them permanently. I only do this a couple of times a year because I rarely add contacts.

I'm really intrigued by the iCloud. I'm slowly starting to transition into using it more. I predict that at the rate I'm going, I'm going to be using the @me.com as my primary email address, and relying on iCloud for all my syncing needs.

its hard having a joint itunes account for the family, and having EVERYBODY's photos and contacts in your phone.
also, i'd like to be able to see my photostream on my macbook.

Hi, I get duplicates in iCal on my iMac and in the cloud. My wife still work with outlook on the windows PC that is not working correctly. and sometimes the cloud is very slow. But I'm glad with the cloud!

Can someone please help me?
I had contacts and calendars from my old iPhone on my MacBook. Once I got my 4S,I set it up as a NEW iPhone. I activated the cloud and it works the way it's supposed to, but how do I get my old contacts and calendars from my old iPhone onto the cloud?

I can't get my contacts from yahoo instant messenger to my ipod touch. Otherwise, I'm happy, of course anything was better than the nothing I had before my Ipod touch.

iC**p messed up all of my data in Outlook with dozens of duplicates of every entry in all 6 calendars. It copied them over badly, multiplied them tenfold then overwrote them back onto my PC.... Thanks Apple for not allowing me to set a master copy of data so when conflicts exists it knows which to use.
It then completely failed to import my contacts from outlook 2007 and wiped both the phone and the PC contact lists.
Took me a LONG time to undo all the damage. Sorry guys at Apple but it's frankly a joke of a cloud. Lovely graphical interface but functionally it's complete PANTS and will never go back on my system unless I have absolutely NO choice.

So far iCloud mail looks and acts pretty much like Mobile Me. I have trouble connecting to the web interface, it's often slow or requires re-logging in, and currently I'm watching a spinner "wait" icon while I wait for it to reconnect in another attempt to download an email attachment that it seems to want to refuse to let me get at.

iHave a question.
Ok so it all sync now flawlessly great but...
What happens if me kid somehow deletes it all from 1 device???
Is there a fail safe???

In trying to set up iPhone, went OK. Then setting up Win 7, bad. I'm getting an Outlook Setup Error --> Your setup couldn't be started because the iCloud server stopped responding.
This was during the step 2 of 5 for Calendars & Tasks with Outlook (after uploading the 851 calendar items in step 1).
I received the same message on Contacts as well (after it went through my 5581 contacts in step 1).
In all cases Try again button produces the same results. Cancel and start over same results. Reboot and start over same results.

Not a life changer, for sure. My photos don't show up in Photo Stream on my iPad because they're all more than 30 days old. Other than that, I don't see what the hoopla is all about yet.

iCloud not doing so good with sending of emails. Anything with an attachment (even just a small 2-3 page pdf) goes extremely slow. Could possibly be a problem on my end, trying to investigate, but never had a problem before now.
(better) Integration with non iOS5 and non Lion computers would be nice.

I continue to have an issue with iCloud push email. It is hit or miss. Most of the time, I have to manually open the email app and messages will begin to download. Never had an issue under mobile me.

Nothing appears to synch - something is going on - don't know what though - certainly not synching between devices????????????

How do I go and fix it? I found a useful program that deletes duplicate events in the iCal app on my mac, but I now have 6 of each event on iCloud. If i could somehow wipe my iCloud calendar and start over, I'd set up as you suggest and it should be fine.

iCloud has totally messed up our syncing and email. Apps and photos disappeared from iPhones. We have two people in the household with multiple devices. It absolutely refuses to sync our calendar and contacts and has totally denied one email account. Apple has really screwed up on this one. It may work for one person with only one .me account. It does NOT work with multiple IDs. I have spent dozens of hours with tech support and they can't fix it either.

since I have saved emails in files in .me AND use Verizon MiFi - checking email used all 5 GH in 2 days. Also doesn't pick up incoming mail. Hate whole mess to date.

Seems that the system may be overloaded as more people sign in. Documents and pictures get lost. Some deleted items come back. Locating my device works most if the time, but sometimes it says I put in the wrong password. I don't consider it reliable. The concept is great though and when it works it's wonderful. But I am a long way from relying on it.

Carl, you're right, the system in your Mustang GT works differently and pairs well with iPhones and the functionality of the overall system does less than the Explorer's. The Explorer's issue revolves around the APIM. This is the accessory protocol interface manager. Imagine your home computer allowing you to listen to music, handle the fan and temperature control of your house, give you directions, let you change from eight different sources not only with buttons, but buttons and controls from two different places, plus touch screen, plus voice control. And, handle a few different languages... Still, on top of this, Apple's protocol for messaging and Bluetooth can and will conflict with the Sync system... this is why Ford and Microsoft are rewriting the entire graphic user interface with its next upgrade. You will get a new system. And by all accounts, the new system will work with more stability. The MyFord Touch system is starting to resemble Windows Vista in the way it was received and used by the public a few years back. And, by the way, Ford tells me that plugging your iPhone in with a USB cord will allow playing the music, albeit in a more clunky way, but it will play. Also, have you got the wi-fi function turned off on your iPhone?

I do not even know the way I stopped up here, but I assumed this submit was once good. I don't realize who you might be however certainly you're going to a famous blogger if you are not already Cheers!

I'm in no way a tech specialist, just an ordinary customer. Sadly, from my point of view, Apple is just as user unfriendly and impossible to work with as Microsoft ever was. Particularly the "seemless sync" of contacts. I think I'll give up and go back to paper and pencil.
