i believe i have set up icloud properly. My Ipad and my Mac are synching Notes to each other but they are not synching properly to Icloud.
I have also set up Calendar to synch on all of the 2 devices and the Icloud and those three things all synch fine.
As long as both devices are compatible with iCloud, it should work. When you say they sync with each other, does that mean via iTunes? Go to iCloud.com and check what if any content is being synced.
