iCloud Beta Unleashed With Web Apps [U]
Apple has today opened up a
public beta of iCloud which the company officially unveiled in early June at WWDC in San Francisco. iCloud has been in the hands of developers for some time and offers the same functionality of the old MobileMe service but for free.
One of the main complaints following the unveiling of iCloud in June was the lack of apparent web apps, with the release of iCloud.com Apple has shown that web apps will exist and be integrated very closely in iCloud.
Users can login to iCloud.com with an existing Apple ID but the ability to merge MobileMe data appears to not be functioning at this time.
[Update 1] Pricing has also gone live, according to 9 to 5 Mac an additional (on top of original 5GB) 10GB of iCloud storage will be $20/year, 20GB will be $40/year and 50GB will be $100/year.
[Update 2] iCloud.com beta does not appear to be a public beta but instead only available to registered developers.
