Best way to share among iPhone, PC, and Mac: MobileMe – a file sharing computer tip

MobileMe was launched approximately 2 years ago.  At that time, the purpose was ideal: sharing e-mail, contacts, and calendar with your iPhone, PC, Mac, and iPod.  All went well until you needed to handle day-to-day simple operations like accessing e-mail or your calendar.  It was slow as molasses and buggy. 

Now, Apple has revamped MobileMe to clear the slowness and glitches.  For $99 a year, along with a 60-day free trial, you will enjoy seamless cloud computing, plus 20GB of online storage.  All works well except one issue with Outlook that brings up calendar and contacts in a non-navigational view when using a Mac and PC.  If you just use one platform: PC or Mac, there are no issues with Outlook.  Apple is looking into a tech fix for this Outlook issue.

The cool factor about MobileMe is that you can set it up for Outlook, Entourage, Thunderbird, or another e-mail software on your computer, and also access e-mail from a webmail view of MobileMe.  You’ll be able to access your files from any computer you use.  It’s almost like having your own company server, but instead you just pay MobileMe an annual subscription to host your files. 

Overall, MobileMe works well and is a quick and easy solution for sharing critical emails, contacts, calendars, and files in a small network or home.
