New poll about iCloud
Authored by: stephen.m on Nov 29, '11 06:30:27AM

I use iCloud for mail, contacts and calendars. But there’s something confusing and non-intuitive about iCloud that keeps me from going all in. At least in the short-term, I don’t want iCloud anywhere near my music.

I have no issues with Mail, But after switching from MobileMe to iCloud, I noticed that calendar events and contacts appeared twice in their respective readers. Upon investigation, I discovered separate groupings—“All iCloud” and “On My Mac”—in my desktop Calendar and Contacts apps.

If I changed a contact on my Mac, the iCloud version didn’t change with it, and vice versa—a recipe for disaster. I turned off the On My Mac versions in both apps, and make all my desktop additions and changes in the All iCloud versions.

So far, syncing through the ‘Cloud to my iPad seems fine for all three apps. I have no idea why there’s an On My Mac version. It must serve a purpose, else why does it exist? But I haven’t figured out what that purpose is. More will eventually be revealed, undoubtedly. Until then, I’m tiptoeing through the ‘Cloud.
