    Selecting what to not backup to iCloud is completely inefficient. especially if you have a lot of apps. What do you guys think?

    well how else would you do it? you're gonna have to have a list of apps that can back up or not, it's just a flick of a yes/no button in the backup menu. better to have that list in 1 place than to have to go into each app and do it.

    You can't judge how efficient it is now as it is in beta. It may work better come September or whenever it is released.

    well it's not going to change dramatically, especially now as we're not far from GM. plus like i said, i think it's a good way to do it.

    The proper iCloud servers may not be running yet. They may be dedicated beta servers, just a thought.

    Mind reading isn't coming out until iOS 6, so I'm not sure what the alternative solution would be.
