Don’t Forget to Configure iCloud on Your PC (Not Just Mac)

If you’ve upgraded any of your iOS devices to iOS 5 and are using iCloud, did you know that you can use your PC as an iCloud client? That means that if you take a picture on your iPad or iPhone, it’ll show up in a folder on your PC (as well as your Mac plus other iOS 5 devices). Not only photos, but iCloud on PC also works with Mail, Contacts, Calendars/Tasks, and Bookmarks, should those additional options appeal to you. In order to set up iCloud on your PC, download the iCloud control panel from Apple. As always, photos from your Photo Stream are only uploaded to the cloud when you’re over WiFi.
