Intro to Mac OS X - 04 - iCloud
Before we dive in and start setting up and using iCloud, Lets take a few moments to help you better understand exactly what you’re dealing with—and what you should be aware of before you switch to or start using iCloud.
iCloud Defined: iCloud lets you access your music, photos, documents and more from whatever Apple device you’re on. Its very easy to set up and use on your Mac or any of your mobile devices.
iCloud can also benefit you if you only have one Apple device. It allows you to “Cut the Cord” meaning you no longer have to sync with iTunes.
Now, if you have more than one digital device—say, two Macs, or a PC and an iPhone, or an iPhone and an iPad, or an iPod touch and an Apple TV—it’s only natural to want all your devices to share many kinds of data. Even more importantly have all those devices “In Sync”
Prior to iCloud, MobileMe let you sync some data (mail, contacts, calendars, bookmarks) between devices seamlessly, but syncing other types of data (documents, photos, apps, and media) among all your devices was cumbersome and error-prone. With iCloud, syncing most all of your data is available on all devices.
Today we will look deeper into the core applications:
