    Can somebody please confirm for me that there is no longer a way to share reminder lists in icloud.com? There is no longer a little share icon next to each list. Hopefully I'm missing something here, and there is a different way of getting to that functionality.
    All Apple's online help is still geared towards the previous version of icloud.com.

    I thought reminders had only just been added to iCloud.com?

    Agreed - no longer able to share

    I noticed the same problem. They've moved the reminder lists off the Calendar app and onto the new Reminders app, but they no longer have a Share button. I hope someone at Apple notices this!

    Thanks

    Thanks for confirming I haven't gone mad. It's frustrating, as my family shares reminder lists so we can bug one another electronically. I hope it is addressed asap or no later than alongide the release on iOS 6.

    ----------
    Update:
    On the Apple support forum the word is that this functionality will be included in iOS 6, so you will be able to share reminders from your device (and your Mac), but still not be able to change those settings in icloud.com.

    I'm so glad the ability to share reminder lists hasn't gone away. I just spent the last half hour in a near panic switching between my iPhone, Mac, and iCloud.com, trying to figure out what was going on. Shared lists are a big deal for my wife and I.

    Amateur hour at Apple...

    I saw an update on the Apple support forum - apparently iOS 6 does NOT have this feature after all. :mad::mad::mad:

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4293082?tstart=0

    I guess I'll reserve final judgement until iOS 6 is in general circulation and iTunes 11 comes out in October - if it's not fixed by then.... grrrr.

    I have sent feedback to Apple. You should do the same.

    it works if you already were sharing a list, but it appears you can not add any more. hoping it will be added back. maybe just an oversight or waiting til servers aren't so congested?

    Not sure if it was mentioned earlier in the thread, but OS X 10.8.2 added the ability to share reminders lists from the Reminders app, but the ability has been lost from the icloud.com web interface.

    Is it just my imagination, or does it seem Apple is making some interface changes, just for change sakes? These little changes in the IOS6 interface, are maddening. And am I the only one who is having issues reading the headings in the list page, of reminders on the iPhone? Gray on Gray? Gimme a break!

    Darn I was just browsing the forums in hopes to find if you could share reminder lists. I also hope they bring this feature back.

    The feature is there you just have to do it from your Mac rather than the website. More convenient now unless you don't have a Mac.

    What would you call it if you don't have a Mac, or have a Mac with an older OS on it? 'Slightly inconvenient'?

    Like I said, if you have a Mac it is now more convenient to share reminders. I didn't like having to go to a website and login just to share a calendar or reminder I created. This is more convenient. My guess is they plan on implementing this in iOS as well which would cover people that don't own a Mac with Mountain Lion.

    Shared Reminders lists are now available again via iCloud.com (still can't share lists via iOS Reminders.app).

    r2shyyou - thanks for letting us know! I have just checked myself and you can indeed share reminders again in icloud.com.

    Great news!
