In another move to make up for the problems that MobileMe has been plagued with since its launch in July, Apple has made another extension to many users, giving another 60 days for free – on top of the 30 days free extension it gave users in July.
In an e-mail to subscribers, Apple has said that the suite of services needs more work. The service was to be an extension of the .Mac service, and is a “cloud” storage solution that syncs e-mails, calendars, contacts, photos, Safari bookmarks, Dashboard widgets, etc. to Macs, iPhones and the iPod Touch.
Users are given 20GB of storage within Apple’s servers and has an application to cooperates with Outlooks on Windows computers. The full letter is below.
We have already made many improvements to MobileMe, but we still have many more to make. To recognize our users’ patience, we are giving every MobileMe subscriber as of today a free 60-day extension. This is in addition to the one-month extension most subscribers have already received.
We are working very hard to make MobileMe a great service we can all be proud of. We know that MobileMe’s launch has not been our finest hour, and we truly appreciate your patience as we turn this around. Read this article for more details.
