    i've been trying to explain this to that imbecile for a month now.  he's not worth it. he clearly wants a different product or he wants a job with apple's product development group so they can develop the products he wants regardless of logic or functionality.

    Actually, I'm not the one whose thinking exhibits a complete disregard for functionality.


    Why did Apple end iDisk at the same time that they rolled out iCloud?  Pull your heads out of your *****.

    "Why did Apple end iDisk at the same time that they rolled out iCloud?" That's a good question.

    Apple didn't end iDisk when they rolled out iCloud. They did announce they were ending iDisk.

    Apple is ending iDisk because they don't want to be in the businees of hosting users data, or web spaces either. I don't see why anyone should be upset or care about it, they can go elsewhere for those services with companies that want to be in that business.


    iCloud is not a data hosting facility for users. It is a service that allows user of Macs, PCs, iPhones, and iPads to sync their current mail, calendar, contacts, photos and iwork docs.


    iCloud is not a Photo repository for the users. It collects the current photos off you devices and streams them to you other devices. After a month they disappear from the iCloud stream. In that time you should have pulled and save the photos you want on your other devices.

    JJ .... Please don't challenge the Appe Fanboys or they will report you tothe mods ... Please take the time to change your life / process to suit Apples vision of how you should work otherwise you'll be classed as a fool :-)

  • JJR-1964 Level 1 Level 1

    Yes Bob, we all know that.  It's still file management and needs specific functions to be usable as file management, hence the 200 or so complaints about Photostream here.  I'm not concerned about offline storage (ok, well, I do like that) -- I'm concerned about file management.  iCloud is one form of file management. If all my files stream to all of my devices I don't need offline storage except for shared projects.     

  • JJR-1964 Level 1 Level 1



    Sigh.  Yes.  You're right.

  • igmackenzie Level 4 Level 4

    This thread has become a total farce.

    It has nothing to do with Apple Fanboys, it is very simply to do with the fact that iCloud was never intended to include the functions beng discussed here, i.e. a file sharing system like Dropbox. Just use Dropbox, as it does a great job.

    This discussion is pointless, and I am out of here.

    Rant on, guys.

    Without a single second of consideration of the fact that the very design is what people are complaining about. I'm not complaining that iCloud isn't Dropbox.  I am complaining that iCloud as designed is too limited in its functionality.  If Apple is putting out an update some time to address that, apparently Apple thinks so too.


    Just recently I was given yet another example of how Apple provides some of the best customer service in the world.  I'm very grateful that Apple as a company does not seem to share the attitude of some people here -- if you don't like our product, just use something else.

    I'm not scolling 23 pages of trolls to see if this was posted but no answer has been listed...



    Sign into your account on Click on your name in the upper right corner next to sign out. Choose the advanced option.  Reset Photostream. Have what ever picture you don't want deleted from your phone, computer, etc then turn Photostream back on or just leave it off.


    If you turn it off then delete the pictures you don't want, then turn it back on will post the picture you don't want again.

  • Chap Sheffield Level 1 Level 1

    @Hinkle - Thanks for the information on how to remove a photo you don't want from PS it reassures me that the other 128 people who posted the same response are in fact correct ......


    @Chuck - That information has to be incorrect why would Apple want to allow anyone to remove individual photos the feature was not designed for that..... surely it is the responsibility of the user to run round to every single Apple device they have and reboot it to remove the odd photo rather than using a simple delete button :-)

  • JJR-1964 Level 1 Level 1

    Someone had mentioned these plans earlier in the thread, but this article is pretty funny -- references to an iPhone 8, etc. 

  • leon44 Level 1 Level 1

    What you did there was tell us what we already know, and then answered the question as if it was equally obvious in the most patronising way possible in written text.


    Not being able to delete a photo from your own album is not a small limitation, for your own album it's a huge limitation that Apple are actually working on solving.

  • Tunderhill Level 1 Level 1

    Again...  Photostream is not an album. It is a cross device synching application. It is not a storage feature. Dogs don't moo. Airplanes don't go underwater. And Louisville slugger doesnt make tennis racquets. If you want Dropbox then use Dropbox. It's an apple approved app. ICloud is only an iOS integrated sky drive for app developers to tie into. You will have thousands of apps that are visible in iCloud as opposed to just the handful of developed ones (calendar, contacts, locate etc). Apple puts it on app developers to build functionality that everyone wants within the confines and control of their ecosystem and proprietary os. They didn't intend to create Dropbox functionality. They created a platform for Dropbox to tie into. Soon you will be able to use Dropbox to store to the Dropbox app in iCloud. That's how it works.
