Share

MobileMe keeps your mail, contacts, and calendar information in the cloud and uses push technology to keep everything in sync across your iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, and the web automatically. So no matter where you go or what device you use, all your information is up to date — no docking required. MobileMe is a subscription service from Apple and you will need to set this up, and pay for it, from your computer first. Currently Apple are offering a 60 day free trial. To sign up for that go here.

To make use of the Find My iPad function within MobileMe, which is one of the key features, make sure that within the Account settings of your MobileMe account you have selected ‘On’ next to the Find My iPad text.

Lost Your iPad?

If you have misplaced your iPad, MobileMe can help you find it. Log in to me.com to view a map that shows the approximate location of your iPad. If it’s nearby, have it play a sound to help you find it, or display a message on the Home screen to help someone return it to you. The Find My iPad feature works best if your iPad includes both Wi-Fi and 3G, but it will also find your Wi-Fi-only iPad when it’s connected to a wireless network.

Your iPad contains information you don’t want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPad and displaying a message on it hasn’t resulted in its safe return, you can remotely lock it with a passcode or initiate a remote wipe and restore factory settings. If you eventually find your iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on iPad.
