New poll about iCloud
Authored by: davidduff on Nov 28, '11 02:56:53PM

i would use icloud for calendar and contact sharing (as i have used .mac and mobileme for years) but i can't seem to get calendar or contact sharing to work on my main mac (because it's running snow leopard, which has no "direct" icloud support and i can't seem to find work-arounds that let me get around this). my mobileme account has been "upgraded" to icloud, so i can access my data from my iphone (running IOS 5.x) but not from my laptop (running 10.6.x).

i would use icloud for the "find my friends" but my friends (family, actually) haven't upgraded their accounts from mobileme to icloud so this feature is not really very useful to me right now.

i would like to use it for photostream - i have this enabled on my phone, however i can't view the photostream on my mac because even though it has the latest version of iphoto (supposedly with photostream support), my mac doesn't "support" icould and therefore photostream.

i can't easily upgrade my mac to 10.7, because of some constraints related to my company (it's their machine, actually) and the vpn client and full disk encryption software that they use. similarly, my friends/family have various reasons for not upgrading to 10.7 including a need to keep running Quicken, and a need to access university servers via VPN.

overall this is quite an annoying situation. i wish apple would push out a release of 10.6.x which adds support for icloud.

Calendar sync works : If you want iCloud support without having to setup iCal manually you can use BusyCal which supports iCloud ( i have used this program for years and it is very good )
As far as contact sync it SHOULD all be possible as well but I have not got it to work...yet. I feel Apple's implementation of CardDAV may be a bit "special" for iCloud.

Please Apple just get this working on Snow with the handy iCloud System Preference.
