When you make a change on one device, the cloud updates the others. The sync happens automatically and continuously.

    (Please note: Updates between me.com and iPhone or iPod touch will occur in a matter of seconds; updates between me.com and Macs running Mac OS X Leopard and Windows PCs may take up to 15 minutes when MobileMe is set to sync automatically. Macs running Mac OS X Tiger may experience longer sync times.)

By S.P.
I notice a lot of the reviews - particularly the negative ones - are dated in July of '08 when the service launched. I think it's important to write a fresh review of things as they stand now, at least for me.

I was one of the people who first tried MobileMe when it officially launched, and I almost immediately gave up on it. Horrible stability and reliability, and for two solid weeks straight, I couldn't even log into the service.

Then Apple began extending the trial periods, and after about month or so, I revisited MobileMe after the problems started to clear up. I can now say that MobileMe is VERY reliable and VERY worth using, in my experience.

I use mobileMe presently to sync my calendars and contacts across three Macs and one iPhone. I also publish my calendar on the web for friends and co-workers to collaborate with. Push functionality works well on the iPhone, and I have my Macs set to sync every hour, making sure everything is up to date on a regular basis. Mail has also been very reliable for me, and I've recently started to add photo albums as well.

No doubt, the launch was really disastrous, and the negative publicity it got at the time was well deserved. however the problems appear to have been fixed and the current MobileMe service is MUCH better.

4.0 out of 5 stars MobileMe. I can not imagine being without it! October 5, 2008
I love this service! The 99$ subscription may be a little hard to swallow, but I can't see myself NOT using this service.

By far the best feature is the iPhoto sync with the online gallery! All I do is plug in my camera to iPhoto, it pulls the pictures from the camera, I tweak them ever so slighty, and post them on my Online Gallery for the rest of my family and friends to view at their leasure. If I make a change to one of the pictures in iPhoto, it automatically syncs the change. Beautiful!

The iDisk has saved me quite a few times when I have forgotten my flash drive at home and needed to save something to share on a diffrent computer.

The only gripe I have about this service is, I dislike the domain name for the e-mail address. ( yourname@ME.COM )I really liked the old domain name ( yourname@mac.com )But I do like the alias option.

Just like with anything that is new, There are a few bugs when syncing with the mail server, but they are usually fixed right away.

If you own a mac, or even if you do not own a mac ( i started using this service a few months BEFORE owning my mac ) This service is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Situation Normal, all as expected January 14, 2009
I order MobileMe (formerly .Mac) every year from Amazon because it is less expensive here than if I directly renew on Apple.com. I simply enter the authorization code on MobilMe and my renewal is applied on the correct date, renewing me for another year.

No problems, No hassles, just as I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apple has worked out the bugs..... October 28, 2008
It appears that Apple has solved the problems that plagued MobileMe earlier this year. I have found the service to be trouble free and find that it does everything that I need it to do. I can seamlessly sync between my iphone, MacBook Pro and "the cloud".

This is an incredible product. I own several PCs, Macs, and and iPhone and MobileMe keeps contacts and calendar events flawlessly synced across all of them. It is incredibly easy to use. When I upgraded my PC, I simply installed the MobileMe control panel, checked off a few boxes, and seconds later it imported all my contacts, calendars, and bookmarks. Cant ask for anything more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The new .mac January 14, 2009
The new .mac is not worst than the old one and maybe even a bit better. At $99 per year regular retail it is kind of expensive, but if you have good reasons to buy it this is a good product. I sync several macs and use MobileMe to backup important files. To me that service is worth its money.
It should be noted that you have to use the activation code from the box within 9 months of purchase, so you should not buy 10 of these and keep them until you need it.

4.0 out of 5 stars works for me November 17, 2008
By ksct
I see lots of complaints on these and other boards. I have used this service since it's inception. Sure there are some bugs and annoyances. But it does the basic job.

I have two desktops, one laptop and an ipod touch all synced with MobileMe. (Though I do hate that name.) Any change on any one device automatically gets sent to all other devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value December 28, 2008
Why pay full price for the Mobile Me renewal when you can buy it on Amazon at such a discount? The product shipped quickly and arrived in time for my renewal. The box even had the original price ($99)! I will be renewing this way for the years to come.
