HIDEOUS!

 

I view and edit my google calendar within iCAL on my PB. Is there any way to view/edit a google Calendar within an iCloud calendar?

No font size control...anywhere. Apple font sizes occupy massive amounts of the screen. A long contact name can't fit on the screen as an example.



Not much flexibility in modifying the look of the iCloud screen. I will find myself using it less. aesthetically pleasing, but not functional.

 



You could try the universal control-mousewheel zooming function for all browsers (and most other sofrware as well)

I agree that lack is skeuomorphism is a good thing. However I find the font (mail folders font) hard to read (just a bit too thin).

Also, it is difficult to identify buttons (For example, open iCloud preferences to see 'Done' button). The absence of a bounding box makes it difficult to identify the function (ie button). It looks like just a bit of text %u2013 very similar to folder names and other text. The only thing guiding the user to the functionality is its location %u2013 bottom row of the window pane. Someone less familiar with computers would find it very difficult to identify/locate it as a button.

I’m hoping for an answer like, “We just do everything yesterday so we don’t have to care.”
Well actually, we used to procrastinate...but now we just don't get around to it.

The comparison of the old iWork icons vs the new "flat" icons shows how long in the tooth the glossy bubble icons really are. I am in favor the new icons for they represent a return to what an icon is intended to be, a clear, quickly recognized representation of an idea or object. The less complex the icon is drawn the faster you brain understands it.

Interesting surprise. I'm not sure if this been documented before, I do not remember reading about it, but when I was using iCloud Numbers a notification came in through OSX and it actually appeared in the browser window over Numbers. What a useful feature when using iCloud on some other computer.

I think that's how you are interpreting their messages. I feel that people's posts here are all about opinions, not necessarily facts. If someone does try to user their opinion as fact, there are a lot of intelligent people that post here that call you out on it.
