Apple iCloud

Apple's iCloud service constitutes a total of nine apps. iCloud will be available for free on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 5 or a Mac running Mac OS X Lion. iCloud is designed to help users sync their files across differing Apple devices. This includes calendar and contact information, so the same data appears on different Apple devices. The same goes for Mail, as users’ inbox and folders will all be kept up to date across devices.
