    How will this work exactly

    say I download and app or take a picture with my iphone how will it get onto my ipad? do I have to click back-up or will it just appear on there as I add pics or apps?

    The pics just appear. I've seen this first hand between iphone and ipad. Takes maybe 20 seconds. I suspect the same for music and apps.

    What if you don't want certain pics to sync?

    Also, anyone know how syncing will work with a windows PC?

    Apps and Music are not syncing through iCloud for me, and I don't see a way to make that happen automatically. iCloud sync options I can see are Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Bookmarks, Notes, Photo Stream, Documents & Data, and Find my iDevice. There's also an iCloud backup option.

    I thought everything was loaded onto both devices? how come apps don't? is it because apps are built differently for iphone and ipad?

    He is wrong. Apps and music DO download automatically to all devices even if you don't have the iOS 5 beta yet; it was the first thing Apple turned on for every user to test out (it's in the "Store" settings on all of your devices.)

    Also, no offense but, how old are you Game161? Have you not seen ANY of the demos from the last few months (or previous Keynote event) of how iCloud works? You really didn't need to ask how this works since it's been shown in depth...

    I have seen the demos and the videos but wasn't sure if you had to sync to back-up to get things to transfer over.

    I was only double checking thats all.

    Btw even with the app on both devices it hasn't downloaded on both at the same time..sometimes it does but most times it doesn't.

    I stand corrected. I had a feeling I was missing something there.
