I have been syncing my IPad  to my mac using iTunes. I would like to start using the cloud to sync my

Contacts, calendar and a small amount of documents. I'm not so concerned with my pictures, video's or

music. they not as time sensitive and can stay with iTunes.

   Do I need to do anything besides disabling those sync functions in iTunes and enable themin iCloud?

I don't want to get a duplicate contact list or calendar. Which are the two main things I need to keep more


        Would I be better off staying with iTunes?  I'm on the same wifi network most of the time.  My

reasoning behind changing sync methods is the fact that iTunes only syncs when I charge my IPad

and I need  A more current sync than once every day or so. (Especially for my calendar.)

   I'm sure the info is buried out here somewhere but I have vision problems which make combing

through the vast amount of info out here a little difficult for me.

     Any thoughts, advise or input would be appreciated.
