As most of you's know, iCloud is in semi use for the current version of iOS (ie Apps and iBook downloads) as a teaser till iOS 5 hits later this year.

Now a few days ago I made a note on my iPad so I can refer to later, and this morning I actually needed it. Now I was curious if maybe the Notes app on my iPhone 4 was "magically" updated via iCloud. I checked and yes the info was there.

Then thought, wait, I plugged my iPhone into iTunes on my iMac last night, so hence I thought, thats why. So decided to test if iCloud was semi working.

I made a note on my iPhone, then checked my iPad, and to my surprised, the note appeared (after a little bit of waiting of course). I decided to repeat the "experiment" except vice versa (ie made note on iPad, then checked iPhone), and the note appeared on the iPhone as well.

I thought, COOL "it works". lol As a final test I made a new note on my iPad, drove to work, and that note was on my iPhone when I checked.

To me it's a snippet of what iCloud will do.

Anyone else notice this?

ps I don't use Mobile Me either.

Note syncing already works with Gmail syncing and has for some time. You dont have a Gmail account set up by any chance?

Note syncing actually works with any IMAP or MobileMe account. Has since iOS 4: iOS 4: Syncing Notes (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4191)

Yeah it doesn't work. I realised since I've got a gmail account, under mail settings, i can sync a few things via googles sync service.

I got a little excited sadly. lol Still look forward to using iCloud though.
