You could try something like Dropbox if you want to save files to a cloud server, but if you're looking for a direct way to link up Snow Leopard to the iCloud servers, you're not going to get one.

Might also look into Google Sync Services, I doubt Apple options will be helpful to anybody but the larest iDevice & OS users from here on out...

What I'm hoping happens is that Leopard users will be able via 3rd party app to be able to make changes in Leopard Addressbook or iCal and have these edits sync to your iOS5 devices and Lion computers.
I remember when I used to have a Palm and Palm stopped supporting the Mac that a company called MarkSpace had an app called Missing Sync that took over where Palm quit so you could Sync your Addressbook and iCal to your Palm Treo and visa versa. Worked even better than Palm's software when they were supporting the Mac.
Speaking of which... I think I'll contact MarkSpace and see if they have software for Leopard to keep Leopard computers in the sync loop.
I'll report back..

I had the same problem and found a workaround to sync in Leopard 10.5.8.
-Sign in on the icloud page with your apple id and open the agenda
-select an agenda and press the button to share it
-make the agenda public (share)
-click the email link and send the invitation to yourself
-open your mail and confirm the subscription
-ical will open and confirm there too.
-In the info window that opens you can select the auto-refresh interval.
-to get rid of the double events uncheck the original agenda and use the subscribed one.
-repeat these steps for all your agenda's in icloud.

The problem with the post above is that events created in ical don't sync to icloud,ical can only retrieve it from the cloud,so I tried something to solve that.
Just figured out how to get an icloud-account in ical for Leopard 10.5.8
you'll find the info in:
~/library/calendars/[the calendar that ends with] .caldav/info.plist
Open the info.plist with textedit
somewhere down the page you'll find <key>PrincipalURL</key>
X.....being your unique ID
Y.....being the calender ID
-Click create account
-description = whatever name you like
-user name= apple id
-server options= https://p02-caldav.icloud.com/[your unique ID]/principal/
This creates the icloud account.
-export a calendar to the desktop
-drag the calendar on the icloud account
there's your icloud calendar!
click 'get info' from that calendar and you will see the url that should connect to icloud but......it doesn't!
Can anyone help me with that please?
I tried a thousand different url's but I can't get ical to connect with icloud.

Frank, I have no .caldav files or folders on my 10.5.8 Mac, could it be from having a MobileMe account in the first place, (which I never had)? Or is it from the previous steps?

Lovely logical thinking Franky-boy
I'm trying this out. Can't thank you enough as this problem was becoming irksum to say the least

Hi Rob, please let us know if it works.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 11, 2012 6:30 AM (in response to BDAqua)
Yes it works.
Tried it out on a few of my calenders now.
Done the "Share" thing through both iCloud Calandar within safari browser, and iCal on my Macbook Pro running 10.7.4.
All work, my iCal on my Mac Tower running 10.5.8. Set them to update every five mins, and changes or new items have appeared.
The alerts don't travel accross. (However one mac and a phone allerting me should be enough without another mac behind me shouting at me as well.)
No all I need is a way of getting the address book to sync and I might be happy with Apple once again
Thank you Frank for a nice simple solution
