Apple Talks About the MobileMe to iCloud Transition

Today Apple released an FAQ on the MobileMe to iCloud transition, stating definitively that users will have web access to iCloud apps. Services like Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Bookmarks, Find My iPhone and Back to My Mac will be transferred from MobileMe to iCloud. Services not making the transition include iWeb publishing, Gallery and iDisk; TechCrunch notes that while Gallery is being replaced by Photo Stream, there is no announcement yet whether Photo Stream will allow you to publish your photos to Other additions to iCloud include iTunes in the Cloud, Documents in the Cloud and a backup and restore function.

MobileMe users will have to make a switch to iCloud by the end of June, when MobileMe services will stop running. Users will also need to transfer websites hosted with iWeb and save their Gallery photos to their computers.
