    I have 2 Macs (both on 10.7.3) and an iPhone 4 (iOS 5.1) with icloud sync enabled for bookmarks on all devices. Changes that I make on one of the Macs or on the iPhone are propogated between that single Mac and the iPhone but not to or from the other Mac. In MobileMe there was a simple process to force the data on the computer to overwrite what was in MM or vice versa but that feature seems to no longer be there in iCloud, plus there is no way to look at bookmarks on the icloud.com website. It seems to me like every iteraton of Apple's cloud services just gets worse II have been through the MM and now the iCloud transition). Why can't Apple seem to get syncing to work? :frustrated:

    I have the same issue between iPad and iPhone. My wife is also seeing the same issue. In each case - they were syncing previously and are no longer. Everything is turned on.

    Same problem here... nobody has found a fix???

    I am relatively a new mac user. Fell in love with apple about a year ago, among other things because of the simple and powerful syncing of MobileMe. Now most of it is gone... still love Macs but to me it is a step backwards.

    Agreed, syncing seems to take a step back with every iteration of Apple's cloud services (or mostly lack of cloud services). I joined while it was mac.com and it seems we have lost capabilities on every transition since then. I have turned to Xmarks for keeping my browsers synced, but unfortunately it does not work for iOS devices; actually they do have a service for that but it only shows you a bookmark list, it does not sync with Safari on iOS, so to me it is not worth using.

    found a microsoft like solution! : in iCloud preferences turn off and then turn on again the bookmark syncing option and it will work again :(

    Unfortunately not for all of us.
