iCloud encompasses so very many different features and fun bits that it's surprising to realize just how much you can do with a free account. Let Macworld's editors help you get the most out of it. This book collects all the material we've written in the last year on Apple's sync service, and we hope it will help you get to know iCloud and learn how best to use it in your life. This book focuses on OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), Windows 8, iOS 6, and iTunes 11 - but we still have some helpful hints for those users with older operating systems. We hope that you enjoy our Starter Guide, but, even more important, that you enjoy iCloud and find ways to incorporate it into your daily routine.
