They synchronize fine between iMac and iPad. Contacts, Notes and Reminders are the only categories that do sync with iCloud on my iMac.  I am running the latest Mountain Lion upgrade.


iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    System Preferences>iCloud. The boxes are checked?

  • Ronmagi Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, the boxes are checked.  I also unchecked them and rechecked them but still no luck.

    Let's see if I've got your problem straight.

     

    All of these categories are checked in System Preferences > iCloud (Settings > iCloud on the iPad) and linked to the same iCloud account?

    The only place you don't see your iCloud account's mail and calendar items is on the icloud.com web site?

  • Ronmagi Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm not sure because the iCloud account automatically set me up as userid@me.com but my Apple id is userid@gmail.com

  • Ronmagi Level 1 (0 points)

    Forgot to mention that the iPad links to my useriid@gmail.com account which is my Apple userid.

  • markwmsn Level 5 (5,572 points)

    OK, so mail sent to userid@gmail.com would be expected to show up on Gmail.com, the iMac, and the iPad. Is that what happens?

     

    What account(s) are the calendar items, notes, and reminders in question entered under? Where do you see them and where do you not see them?

     

    Mail, notes, and reminders are handled sort of similarly. Calendars are different. Contacts yet different. Expecting them all to work the same, while understandable, is not realistic as things are currently implemented.

    All of the apps mentioned use the gmail.com userid and sync between my iMac and iPad. Only Contacts, Notes and Reminders sync to the iCloud account. The calendar shown in iCloud is just a blank calendar and the only mail shown in iCloud is the one email I received to welcome me to me.com.

  • markwmsn Level 5 (5,572 points)

    Yes, that sounds about right for the mail. The calendars would depend on which calendar accounts you use on the iMac and the iPad.

     

    The items not visible on icloud.com are probably visible on Google web sites.

    If I understand what you are saying, iCloud seems like its over-hyped and is pretty useless for Mail and Calendar. It makes no sense to me to have Calendar and Mail available on iCloud if it doesn't show the same Calendar and Mail that is on your iMac and iPad.

     

    Yes, my Calendar syncs with Google as well as on the iPad and iMac. Why shouldn't it also sync with iCloud?

    Because it's a Google Service not an iCloud service, you can still sync it to your Mac and your devices, just not using iCloud.

    To paraphrase what you're saying - The only mail that can be seen on iCloud is that addressed to me at me.com or iCloud.com. Is that correct?

  • Csound1 Level 8 (46,910 points)

    If you mean 'on the icloud website' yes, that is correct.

  • markwmsn Level 5 (5,572 points)

    Ronmagi, I think you are not getting the benefit of the full "iCloud experience" because your Apple ID is @gmail.com and not @mac.com, me.com, or icloud.com.

    Try to keep track of who you reply to, I don't have a Gmail account or a Gmail Apple ID
