iCloud características oficiales del nuevo servicio en la nube de Apple

iCloud el voceado servicio en la nube de Apple acaba de ser anunciado oficialmente, junto con el pase a retiro de MobilMe, de esta manera terminan meses de rumores acerca de las características de iCloud, de que va el tema?

Ahora cuando creamos un contacto en nuestro iPhone o iPad, este automáticamente es sincronizado en la nube y estará disponible en todos nuestros otros dispositivos iOS, lo mismo sucede con nuestro calendario, que también tiene ahora una opción para compartir, cuando agregamos un evento a nuestro calendario, este es sincronizado en la nube y es actualizado en otros dispositivos que comparten el mismo calendario.

En cuanto al mail, este será ofrecido en me.com y opera exactamente igual que en los casos anteriores, se sincroniza y actualiza en todos nuestros dispositivos iOS

Estas tres funcionalidades como recordaremos estaban disponibles en MobileMe por un precio de 99$, ahora forman parte de iCloud y son gratuitas, no es esa una buena noticia?

En cuanto a novedades en el App Store, Steve Jobs menciona que ahora podemos ver que aplicaciones hemos comprado incluso si no están instaladas en el dispositivo que estamos usando, podemos luego descargarlas de forma inmediata, algo parecido a lo que nos ofrece Whispernet de Amazon, pero el asunto vas más allá, una vez al día, se creará un respaldo de contenido en la nube, si adquirimos un nuevo dispositivo iOS, todo esto será cargado en este de forma automática, claro de forma inalámbrica.

iCloud también trae novedades con los documentos, si creamos un documento en Pages (aplicación de oficina), este documento será subido y almacenado en la nube, y sera actualizado en todos los documentos donde tengamos Pages, lo mismo sucederá con Numbers y Keynote (otras aplicaciones de oficina)

Pero las sorpresas no terminan, y Jobs se ha reservado para el final lo mejor, iCloud funcionará tanto en ordenadores MAC como en PCs, habrán nuevos APIs para que los desarrolladores puedan integrar sus aplicaciones al nuevo sistema de almacenamiento de iCloud.

iCloud adicionalmente ofrece un nuevo sistema de stream para fotos – Photo Stream -, solo basta tomar fotos y subir el contenido de tomas a la nube, luego de eso ya podemos descargarlas en cualquier dispositivo iOS como iPhones, iPad y iPods, podemos importar fotos que nosotros mismos hemos tomado pero también las tomadas por otras personas, Photo Stream promete ser muy intuitivo y fácil de usar y estar integrado en iPhoto para Mac, dentro de Apple TV y con la carpeta de Imagenes en el caso de las PCs. Para evitar problemas de espacio, solo se almacenarán las últimas 1000 fotos en nuestros dispositivos iOS, esta restricción no cuenta para PCs y MAC, la restricción para el almacenamiento en la nube es de 30 días de alojamiento.

Veamos ahora que aporta iCloud a iTunes, ahora aparecerá un botón/etiqueta de “comprado” debajo de cada canción que hemos adquirido, en efecto, ahora iTunes nos muestra un historial de compras, disponible en cualquier dispositivo, la demostración es concreta pero suficiente, han descargado una pista en un dispositivo y automáticamente ha comenzado a descargarse en otros dispositivos, convincente!

Esto significa que cuando compremos un nuevo dispositivo o actualicemos uno, tendremos nuestra colección allí mismo de forma inmediata, el sistema permite hacer pushing a 10 dispositivos, estará habilitado por defecto en el nuevo iOS 5, nos dará 5GB de almacenamiento gratuito para correo electrónico además de almacenamiento, ya que esto no incluye Photo Stream ni las descargas musicales.

Finalmente, pero no en último lugar, esta iTunes Match una prestación largamente esperada y comentada que ahora se hace realidad, se trata de una movida muy inteligente, usualmente tendríamos que subir nuestra colección de música de forma completa para luego disfrutar de ella en forma de stream, verdad? aquí viene la variante: iCloud nos permite elegir entre 3 opciones para el streaming, podemos sincronizar nuestras canciones hacia la nube, podemos comprar la canción directamente, o usar iTunes Match

Pero que es iTunes Match? es un servicio que escanea la música que poseemos y verifica si ya está en iTunes, incluso si no la hemos comprado en iTunes, si ya está y ha sido positivamente identificada, podemos disponer de ella para nuestro stream, las canciones identificadas son optimizadas a 256 kbps AAC DRM-free, pero  iTunes Match no sera gratuito, aunque el costo tampoco es axecsivo: 24.99$ al año.

iCloud Revealed and Detailed

NoYes

After announcements of OS X Lion and a massive amount of improvements in both this new operating system and the just-as-new iOS 5, Steve Jobs stepped on stage once more to speak: You like it so far? I’ll try not to blow it.” He spoke with love for this new project: “We’ve been working on this for some time. About 10yrs ago we had an important insight: we thought the PC would be a hub for your life, photos, music, content,” the name of which is, yep, you guessed it: iCloud.

Let’s continue with some quotes from Jobs: “Sync to your Mac and it will work fine. And it did, for the better part of 10yrs, but it’s broken down in the past few years.” Harsh! We’re still using it, Steve, but do continue on, by all means. “That’s because all your devices have photos, video, music. If I buy something on my phone, I have to sync it to get a song I bought. Then I have to sync to other devices, and do the same with photos… keeping these devices in sync is driving us crazy!”

Then came the big words on the future: “We have the solution: we’re going to demote the PC and Mac to be “just a device” – we’re going to move your digital life to the cloud” It’s all so digital! “Now, if I get something on my iPhone, it’s sent to the cloud immediately. Then it’s pushed down to my devices automatically, and now everything is in sync without having to think about. I don’t have to be near my Mac or PC”

A quote appeared on the big screen at this point noting that “iCloud stores your content and wirelessly pushes it to all your devices.” Steve drove this point home with the following: “Some people think the cloud is just a hard disk in the sky, you transfer back and forth.” A jab at Google and Amazon. He continued, “We think it’s more than that, we call it iCloud. It’s complete integrated with your apps and there’s nothing new to learn. It just… works.” As all good Apple stuff does.

“You might ask, why should I believe them? They brought me MobileMe!”

No way Steve, but just for conversation’s sake, let’s ask it – why? “It wasn’t our finest hour but we learnt a lot. We threw away the Mobile Me contacts, calendar and mail apps, and have rewritten them from the ground up to be iCloud apps. When I make a new contact on my iPhone, it’s automatically brought up to the cloud and then pushed down to my devices. If I change it, it’s updated on all devices. Calendars works the same way – pretty cool”

Steve continued, “When I make a new contact on my iPhone, it’s automatically brought up to the cloud and then pushed down to my devices. If I change it, it’s updated on all devices. Calendars works the same way – pretty cool.” Calendars and music and all sorts of everything, oh my! Steve, what else could there possibly be? “Mail. It’s in the best shape of all. We give you a mail account at me.com, and your inbox and folders are kept up to date on all devices. But we’ve brought three more apps into the cloud universe. First, the App Store.”

App Store

Steve details how you’re able to see your app purchases even if they’re not installed not he device you’ve got with you. You can see which ones you’ve got already payed for and download them instantly. This is a feature Google added a few months ago and it’s been going swimmingly thus far, and Steve mentions that they’d be expanding to iBooks. Note here though that Steve didn’t mention Android, your humble narrator did so you’re massively informed. Our faithful reporter Vince also mentions that it works like Amazon Whispernet, re-downloading content to multiple devices with the same user account.

Next is backup – “for those people who want to be completely PC-free.” Steve continues: “Once daily, we’re going to back up a lot of your important content to the cloud – if you get a new phone, everything will be loaded onto it automatically.” All of this wirelessly.

Documents

Steve noted the following on how Documents will work with iCloud: “If I create a Pages document, it’s uploaded and stores it in the cloud. It then pushes it to all the devices I have pages on. The same works for Numbers and Keynote”

Roger Rosner, VP of iWork was called up to the stage at this point to do a demo. He moves through a Keynote presentation that gives you the option to pull in documents from the cloud. He moves then to Pages on an iPhone where he’s slotted and continuing to slot in pictures from the Camera Roll. Rosner notes that when you edit items in this fashion, iCloud automatically syncs the latest version to your other iOS devices.

Works on Mac and PC

It was at this point that it happened: Steve steps back up onstage and lays down a bomb: this iCloud system as a whole will work with Mac AND PC computers. The slide up behind him notes that this situation “completes the iOS document storage story.” Steve notes “We’ve been working for ten years to get rid of the file system: when you teach someone to use a Mac, everything is fine until you get to the file system” He mentions that there will be new iCloud storage APIs so that developers can easily tie their apps into the iCloud storage system. APIs will be in place for documents and key value data. “We think this is going to be pretty big.”

NOTE: Stay tuned as this post is updated throughout the keynote.
