MobileMe web app features shapeshift into Apple's iCloud

iWeb and others fail to make the cut

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Apple confirmed late last week that various web apps currently locked into MobileMe will live on in the company's recently announced iCloud service.

However, Cupertino is canning its iWeb publishing, Gallery and iDisk tools on 30 June 2012.

The apps that will survive the death of Apple's unpopular MobileMe service include mail, contacts and calendars.

However, the iPhone maker is yet to explain how existing MobileMe users will migrate the data held in those apps over to its iCloud service, which is expected to launch in the autumn.

Apple is advising MobileMe customers to begin backing up their data before the service is killed next year.

"Syncing of Mac Dashboard widgets, keychains, Dock items, and System Preferences will not be part of iCloud, but will continue to be available for you to use until you move to iCloud," said Apple in a transition guide.

"After you move to iCloud or after June 30, 2012, whichever comes first, those sync services will no longer be available."

Apple boss Steve Jobs confirmed earlier this month to a customer who was worried about the fate of iWeb that it would be axed. ®
