Time for a pop quiz!
Is iCloud (a) packed with useful features, (b) more complex than Apple lets on, (c) almost essential for Mac and iOS use, (d) thoroughly documented by Joe Kissell in Take Control of iCloud, or (e) all of the above?
The answer, as you veteran quiz takers know when faced with an “all of the above” option, is (e). iCloud really is helpful, deceptively complicated, integrated deeply into the Mac and iOS experience, and, frankly, sometimes a royal pain in the posterior. But no one does a better job of explaining iCloud’s features and quirks than Joe Kissell in this latest ebook from TidBITS – updated to version 1.4.1 to cover iOS 6 and iTunes 11.
If you’re pulling out your hair in frustration as you try to connect your Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Windows PC to the many digital pipes that iCloud offers, Joe’s 155-page Take Control of iCloud will answer your questions and preserve your hairstyle. And, if you’re trying to help your mother, sister, uncle, co-worker, fellow Rotarian, or Game Center buddy sync contacts between devices, create a shared calendar, filter email before it hits the iPhone, and so forth, Joe has ferreted out the details you need to solve their problems.
Joe explains the key aspects—and hidden gotchas—of iCloud’s updated core features … iCloud Backup, Documents in the Cloud, iTunes in the Cloud (including iTunes Match), Shared Photo Stream, Find My iPhone, Mail, Contacts, Calendars, the Notes and Reminders Web apps and Back to My Mac, as well as dealing with shared or multiple Apple IDs and numerous minor changes to iCloud’s Web interface, and more.
