After being psyched for iCloud, I now find that I am hardly using it at all. I understand that my complaints are likely not held by many others, and I'm sure for many its a great service, but so far I've found it to be horrible. Let's do a run down of the iCloud services as listed on the iPhone settings screen. 1. Mail - OFF I have mail off because why do I need another email address? All my email (Yahoo, Google) stays in sync across devices without iCloud. 2. Contacts - OFF As I mentioned in another thread, when I'm calling someone, the background image behind the phone functions (speaker mute etc) is a blown up super scary zoomed in image of the person's face. The only way to get their face into a neat little thumbnail on the call screen is to sync with a service such as Google. So my contacts stay on Google. 3. Calendars - OFF I already synced my calendars through Yahoo. Not sure how to transfer that info over to iCloud. I'm sure it can be done but I expect the only benefit is that instead of taking thirty seconds for a calendar event to appear on my devices, it'll take 3. 4. Reminders - ON I have this one on FOR NOW but I anticipate I might be turning it off soon because I'm not sure yet if I want the same reminders on my iPad that I get on my iPhone. Time will tell how I end up using this feature. 5. Bookmarks - OFF I use different bookmarks for my iPhone and iPad. 6. Notes - OFF I have different notes on my iPhone and iPad, and the notes that are the same are formatted differently. 7. Photo Stream - OFF Photo Stream is a huge disappointment. First, it's crazy that every single image in your camera roll gets set to Photo Stream, including images you save from Safari, Twitter, etc. You should be able to choose only photos taken with the camera. Second, you can't delete photos from the Stream simply from the device. I know you can reset it but thats not exactly an ideal solution. Third, the process of having to choose photos to save from the Stream is clunky. For example, say I go out and take 10 photos on my iPhone, then save them from the stream to my iPad. Then I take another 5. I go back to my iPad and accidentally select some of those original 10 because I forgot I saved them already. Guess what? The iPad saves a second copy of the photo, instead of realizing that it already has one. The whole thing is just clunky and messy and needs a lot of work before I can ever use it. 8. Documents & Data - ON I left this one on simply because I feel like if its off then I should just forget iCloud completely and turn it off. I suppose its nice that it constantly backs up my information. But personally, I plug in my phone to my computer every night while I surf the web to charge it. So that would back it up anyway. 9. Find My iPhone - ON This is nice to have if I ever lose the device. But I had it before iCloud. So of the 9 services I'm using 3. Of those 3, 1 I might turn off, and the other 2 I had working just fine before iCloud ever existed. Sorry for the long post but I just needed to vent on how disappointed I've been in the early going with iCloud. It went from being something I was really looking forward to, to something that I can live without. I really hope Apple updates it heavily in the future to improve it, especially the Photo Stream.
