I am upgrading from MobileMe to iCloud in windows 7, w/ MobileMe I sync with my Windows contacts not with Outlook contacts (I can't stand bloated outlook app).  I don't see this option in iCloud - does this mean Apple is not supporting syncing iCloud with Windows Contacts?  If so I am very disappointed in Apple.

 

thanks,

    You're correct, Outlook is the only supported client for Windows, and I agree with your assesment of Outlook. There is an usupported alternative in eMClient, which does look a lot like Outlook but is simpler and snappier.

     

    Setup is manual, mail is easy as are contacts and calendars, if you want to try it post back and I'll look for the server address information.

    Check in the app store for 3rd party solutions, I don't use Windows for much at all now so it is not a problem for me, but a better solution (for some functions) is Google, mail, contacts and calendar/tasks will sync to Windows and to iDevices.
