In case you have not yet heard, APple today released a new iDisk app for iPhone. If you use MobileMe and use the iDisk 20GB’s of storage than this app provides some very handy access to your files. The best part is the app is free. The video above is Apple’s demonstration of what the app does and how it works. I have been using it for the day and have to say I find it very convenient to have access to 20GB of storage online at all times. MobileMe after much criticism has continually gained some very respectable features and is finally proving its worth.
While I was looking at MobileMe today to check some files, I first was greeted with a message telling me the service was down. I then refreshed and noticed the addition of a button on the side that says "Find My iPhone". I then clicked the button on the sidebar and it gave me a few options, find my iphone, wipe my iphone, or send a sound or message to the iphone. I have the 3.0 GM installed through a developer account and so I promptly clicked find my iPhone as I was interested in how well this would work. After about 20 seconds I was greeted with a message that told me I needed to enable the setting on the iPhone. After some searching I found the option under mail setting and the MobileMe account. This is in an obscure place and hopefully will change in the future. See the photo below:Read More
MobileMe has not been the most friendly of apps. Apple has gone to great lengths to please their customers by offering them a total of 90 free days onto their existing year if they experienced the many outages. Apple has now posted a technical bulletin outlining the updates that MobileMe received in late September. Apple is usually very "hush-hush" about their updates and it is nice to see them branch out and let us in on what has really changed. The updates for MobileMe cover the entire spectrum of the product from stabilization to improving the user experience. See more after the jump…
MobileMe subscriptions are being extended again by an additional 60 days on top of the already added 30. While I have yet to experience these troubles, many have had issues with the service. Either way it is nice of a company to admit they had troubles and try to make up for it.
