Mossberg retests Apple’s MobileMe: Service now prompt and reliable

MobileMe - Apple Store (U.S.)“I have just spent a few weeks testing [Apple’s MobileMe] again on multiple Windows and Mac computers, and an iPhone,” Walter S. Mossberg reports for The Wall Street Journal.

“Apple has fixed all of the speed and reliability issues I encountered last year. In my new tests, MobileMe’s email was prompt and reliable. I was able to add, delete or edit a contact or calendar entry on one device, and see these changes almost immediately on all the others, and on the MobileMe Web site. The Web-based photo gallery, which can also house videos, worked fine on both Windows and Mac, and I was able to upload photos to it from my iPhone. The file storage also worked well, and now has a feature that allows you to share files too large to email. And each MobileMe account works with an unlimited number of computers, iPhones and Touches,” Mossberg reports.

Mossberg reports, “But there is one major caveat. While MobileMe works with Windows, it works better with Macs.”

MacDailyNews Take: Just like everything else that’s worthwhile.

Mossberg continues, “Apple’s $99 price may seem high, given that you can get some features for much less, even free… But MobileMe finally does give consumers the main email, contact and calendar convenience corporate users rely upon daily.”
