iCloud just works. Not.

When iCloud launched, Apple said that it just works. It turns out its not completely true. While many things like syncing of contacts, push mail etc work well, its the syncing between the iPhone and iPad apps that doesn’t work well. I added a reminder on the iPad and just forgot about it. In normal scenario, what would you expect to happen when icloud is enabled for reminders? You expect the reminder you added on your iPad to immediately appear on the iPhone as well. Well it turns out that the sync functionality works perfectly only when an instance of the app in case is open on both devices.

Same is the case with iBooks. You must open a new instance of the app to make it sync with other devices if its not running already.

Isn’t this method broken? Shouldn’t it just work, as promised? I hope things improve in a later update.
