iCloud - the never-ending nightmare
I've been with what is now called "iCloud" for at least 7 years. (Since it was mac.com). When it comes to Apple I could generally be categorized as a "true believer", but the incessantly deteriorating iCloud experience is certainly a challenge to maintaining that optimism.
My biggest complaint with iCloud is that it does not sync between my 4 Apple devices -- (an iMac, a MacBook Pro, an iPhone, and an iPad). The two computers tend to stay in sync, but EACH of the iPhone and the iPad do not recognize emails that I have already read. Not only that, but I sometimes have to open and exit a single email as many as 20 times before my phone will mark it as read. It is an unbelievably shoddy experience.
Secondly, for many months now, when composing emails in the Safari web browser, upon hitting send, iCloud usually (and with increasing frequency) responds with "Cannot send email right now." It can't send and it can't save the draft, either. The only way to save your work is to select all, copy and paste it into a text document to retrieve later.
Having to do with with 95% of the emails that you send is obviously an unacceptable situation.
Tonight iCloud has taken failure to a new level. Every time I try to reply to an email it immediately logs me out. This has happened over a dozen times. For an hour I've been trying to reply to an important email and am unable to do so on account of this intractable problem.
Apple really ought to be ashamed at what a terrible job they have done with this service. Even horrible Yahoo does a better job with their email services. I guess it's time for me to switch to Gmail but I've been hanging on so long hoping for Apple to get their act together. What are they spending all their money on?
