    Hey all,

    I just wanted to see if Photostream is actually working for you guys. I've been snapping photos on my iPhone like crazy and have photo stream enabled on both it, my MacBook Pro, and my iMac, but the photos don't show up on the photo stream for either of the Macs (the macs say there are 0 photos available in my photo stream).

    For what its worth, I'm a transitioned MobileMe customer.

    I just tried it and I turned it on with iPhone and iPad but no photos are being shared. :confused:

    It works for me. Photos taken on my iP4S show up on my iMac and MBA.

    You're running Lion, right?

    Well what happened in my case was that I didn't have photo stream turned on when I actually took the photos. I thought it would share all recently taken photos. So, make sure you have photo stream turned on before you actually take the photos.

    works perfect for me as well...pics show up within 30-45 seconds.

    One thing that I don't get is why you can't get subscribed calendars to sync with iCloud------so stupid.

    I am reading this on my iPad and I just checked my photo stream and I see the picture I took on my iPhone while I was at the store earlier. So works for me.

    Yes... running Lion 10.7.2. Fully updated on all of the devices. Latest iPhoto from Mac App Store as well - also fully updated. I see where the photos are SUPPOSED to be, but they simply aren't showing up :-/

    ----------

    okay... they JUST showed up. Took over 5 hours for them to show up, but they're there now.

    sigh... this iCloud launch is turning into another MobileMe.

    We're you on WiFi the entire 5 hours. I think it only works on WiFi.

    On my Mac, they don't start to download until I open iPhoto and then it has to sit there for a while, before they start to appear. Much slower process than I was expecting, but they do eventually show up. I've started leaving iPhoto running all the time.
