    I did some clouding yesterday and finally got a backup successfully uploaded last night. I found the biggest issue was the application size and the associated files. iCloud will back up your app settings and the data, which meant that one of my apps, GoodPlayer, that had some movies attached to it was being uploaded as well. I got an estimated time of 8 hours when I had this one set to back-up. Since I turned it off, it's now down to a 10 minute backup.

    Besides backups, what else can you/should you use iCloud for? All my email, contacts, and calendars go through exchange so I don't really need to back this up since I can restore from the server at any time.

    Any other cool iCloud uses? Seems sorta blah to me at the moment.

    It's going to be blah for a while until app developers start making use of it.
