I am still running Snow Leopard so forgive me if I have missed something, but what's new in iCloud with the upcoming Mountain Lion? On Apple's homepage ML advertises synching of bookmarks, contacts, calendars and docs for the mac but isn't that all available with the current iteration of 10.7 Lion anyway?

So what's new? How is iCloud improving with Mountain Lion? :confused:

10.7 doesn't sync Safari tab. That's one.

ML brings in a new way to browse iCloud data from within an Open/Save dialogue.

Not a whole lot is being show but i'm willing to bet the build given to WWDC developers will have a vastly improved iCloud featureset.

Reminders and Notes use iCloud (Reminders would be useless without it)

Also more stores will be setup with your iCloud in ML.


In Lion it's kind of annoying because you login iCloud but the Mac App Store doesn't setup so that's yet another step that needs to be done.

More stores? What do you mean, which stores?

Technically you can use it via icloud.com with limited to none, functionally, but other than that agreed.

Is that aimed at me? If so, I have an iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone on iCloud and I can read so something. But the fact I don't have Lion and so don't know for sure is why I started this thread in the the first place!
