Official iCloud Icon

Steve Jobs announced iCLoud on WWDC 2011. An interesting bit for developers is the ability to sync app data via iCloud for free.

This means easier app development. The complex task to build the sync logic is finally gone. perfect!

... iCloud is free... wow!

Update: Or is it? We'll have to wait for the new iOS 5 and iCloud API specifications. Maybe only Apple's apps are synced. That would be very sad!

Update 2: There will be iCloud Storage APIs. Documents, Key Value data. It'll work on all iOS devices, Macs and PCs.

Update 3: iCloud Developer Beta starts today!
