    I use my iPhone and iPad differently and apart from mail, calendars, contacts, etc there are some apps I only want on one device and not on the other. Also different photos and music. (Both devices are only 16gb so space is limited.)

    Everything I read says iCloud makes all devices the same. Is there a workaround?

    Currently own iPad2 16g, iPhone 3gs...(4s on the way !!!), MacBook Pro 15".

    You won't have the same Apps on both products if you don't want to. I don't have the same on my iPhone and iPad. I have the same Calendar, Contacts though.

    iCloud does not affect the apps you have on either device. You can set up through iTunes or the device itself the apps you want on. If you have iTunes automatic download switched on, if you download a new app to iPhone it will also automatically download to iPad. If you don't want it on the other device just delete it. Or turn automatic downloads off in Store settings.
