    During the Keynote back in June, it was mentioned that photostream would work with Windows. Anyone have any idea how exactly?

    Basically instead of a nice organised option in iPhoto that Mac has, it uses the My Pictures folder.

    there will be an iCloud control panel app released (most likely) tomorrow, you just sign into it and select where you want the photos. if you have outlook 2007/2010 it will also set up the email and sync contacts and calender in that too.

    I have it working on Windows 7 with the iCloud control panel beta and can confirm it's just a folder - works pretty well so far. I see it'll allow me to sync bookmarks with IE but not Safari or Chrome. Hopefully they add support for both! And i don't see how to sync reading lists in Safari but maybe they'll release an iCloud compatible version of Safari tomorrow.

    Just keep your iTunes up to date, and wait for iOS5 to be released.

    So I have iTunes 10.5 and iOS5. With iCloud now live, the help files say to

    Choose Start menu > Control Panel > “Network and Internet.”

    and there will be an iCloud icon, and there isn't for me.


    So how have other people got it working?

    Ah! Thank you :D Have downloaded the Beta version which is working, I assume Apple will release a non-Beta one at some point.
