    Hey everyone,

    I've seen this question multiple times in other threads, but still haven't seen an answer...

    I've shared a photostream with my boyfriend who also has an iPhone 4s, updated to ios 6, and has iCloud on with Photostream and sharing enabled. The Photostream I shared with him is STILL not showing up on his phone.

    Is there some kind of invite he has to accept or somewhere he has to go? I can't seem to find instructions anywhere that may point out something I missed.

    Different problems.

    Sorry, i am no help on your query but I though i'd add my own problems as it's Shared Photostream related so maybe 'the cloud' will get fixed and resolve both out problems...

    I select photo's from my iPhone & iPhoto (OSX) to add to a Shared Photostream album. Add email addresses. Album is created. Email is received by recipient. They click the link to 'join photo photostream' and then a pop-up error appears saying 'Unable to join Shared Photostream. Please try again later'.

    Hope this a temporary bug.

    One thin I have found out is that if you choose the public link, those pictures on the website are lower res, so it's not a suitable method for transferring multiple images for professional use. Not a big deal as it was unlikely to replace Dropbox, but good to know....
