Apple Releases Over 25 Fixes for MobileMe
The Calendar application should also see improved performance and a resolution to an issue where event editors would only partially display in some browsers. In addition, the ability to export contacts as vCards has been re-enabled.
MobileMe has had problems since it was launched. Shortly after releasing the service, Apple apologized for the continuing problems users were experiencing and offered members a 30-day addition. Not long after, Steve Jobs issued a memo to employees stating that the service was not up to Apple’s standards. The company then issued another extension, this time for 60-days.
MobileMe was introduced at the same time as the iPhone 2.0 software and the AppStore. The service replaced Apple’s subscription-based online service, .Mac. With MobileMe, users receive a custom email address, a Web site address, Web publishing and file sharing tools, and syncing technology that works with Macs, PCs, and iPhones.
For a company that prides itself in the quality of its products, they’ve sure had a few hiccups lately. Hopefully things are on the upturn.
